***UPDATES***
09/22 - Rejected at UVA (not surprising). Submitting new ED app to Duke.

09/23 - Got most of my other apps in. Will submit to UNC and U of Washington once they open up in October.

10/06 - First acceptance at William & Mary! Dean Faye called to break the news. Scholarship info to come.

10/08 - Received scholarship info from William & Mary. A little disappointed with the total, as W&M is definitely a school I am considering attending. Looking forward to see how the rest of my cycle turns out!

10/20 - Accepted at University of Alabama! Admissions rep stated that the financial aid committee has not convened for this cycle yet, so scholarship offers are to come. They did offer to pay for my accommodations should I wish to visit the school. Will definitely take them up on that!

11/03 - Accepted at Washington & Lee through email. Will get the letter and (hopefully) scholarship information in a couple days.

11/06 - Received scholarship offer from W&L in the amount of $37,500 per year with no stip.

11/11 - Accepted at UC Irvine via email. Stated acceptance letter and scholarship information will be coming later in the month via "snail mail."

11/12 - Accepted at BC via email. Scholarship offers will not be going out until around February.

11/17 - Accepted at ASU via phone call.

11/19 - Accepted at WUSTL via email. Almost a month after my interview!

11/24 - Received scholarship offer at Alabama in the amount of $25,000 per year with a top 50% stip.

11/30 - Received acceptance packet and scholarship info from ASU. $20k first year, $15k second, and $10k third. No Stips.

12/01 - Accepted at George Washington via email.

12/04 - Accepted at Iowa via email.

12/08 - Accepted at Boston University via phone call.

12/14 - Waitlisted at Notre Dame via snail mail. Not at all surprising as I did not do any of the optional essays, which are apparently not so optional.

12/17 - Rejected at Duke via email, which was expected. Still a little bummed about it.

1/05 - Rejected at UCLA via email. Not terribly surprising (below both medians).

1/07 - Waitlisted at UGA via status checker. Shocked the hell out of me. Definitely a YP move on their part. Not impressed.

01/11 - Received scholarship packet from UCI. $25000 a year with a grade stip.

01/13 - Accepted at Wake Forest via email.

01/27 - Accepted at IU Bloomington via email with a full tuition scholarship! =D

01/28 - Awarded a full tuition scholarship from Wake Forest!

05/24 - Apologies, got a little lax with the updates. But this completes my cycle, I have submitted my final deposit to Wake Forest. Couldn't be more excited to be a Demon Deacon!!

Is your W&M scholarship a total of $45K, so about $15K per year?

Thanks, and congrats on yours as well (and that UVA waitlist)! Definitely eager to hear from either of them...UNC especially =/.

Really sorry about Vandy. There is some weirdness going on this cycle. Hope you get better news soon!

Thanks! Not too surprised about Vandy (below both of their medians), UNC was the big shocker! Ultimately, I am in a much better spot than a lot of applicants, so I certainly have nothing to complain about. But look at you! I see that t14 movement =). Congratulations!!!

  • Wow!
  • Thursday, March 31 2016 at 10:37 PM

Congratulations on all those great schools! I'm curious, if you don't mind me asking-- did you do all of the essays for UNC? They're one of my top picks and I'm getting nervous!

Thank You! I actually did the required two and left the others alone. Do not extrapolate my outcome with what you can expect, though, as my case was very atypical (and the admissions dept at UNC admitted as much). I'll say that it had nothing to do with the "standard" components of my application. Good luck with the rest of your cycle!
