4/13/12- Welp my cycle is pretty much over. Visited ASW's and ASD's at W&L, Cardozo, American, and UIUC. Put down first seat deposit at UIUC and am all set to attend in the Fall unless of course I'm accepted of the Cornell WL. Still haven't heard from Santa Clara but at this point I'm assuming it's WL or ding. My cycle was a success and I did far better than I could have ever imagined given my stats. Feel free to ask any questions about my cycle, this site and TLS have really carried me through the cycle with all the info and support! Thank you and GL to the rest of you!
05/11/12- Just got an email today to sign onto ecampus for Santa Clara U hadn't yet received my acceptance so a bit of surprise looks like I got in on May 9th. So this officially ends my cycle. Unless I magically hear back from Cornell, I will be attending UIUC.
