ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

My cycle is over- the below has been modified to exclude my unhelpful rantings

$$ is total over three years

1/10 Accepted by email at W&L!

1/11 Found out Vandy decision was sent 1/9

1/16- Received Priority Mail package from Vandy

1/17- Georgetown decision made according to status check-Will this be a ding for the second time?

1/22- Michigan status check was decision when I checked today

1/24- Today I am essentially going crazy wondering where my (probable) ding from Georgetown might be. I live 15 minutes away, you'd think it'd take less than a week. So I continue the waiting game....

1/26- Big letter from Michigan in the mail today!

2/2- GW waitlisted me again this year

2/8 So yesterday I finally got a hold of someone at GULC who helped me with this pesky ding (probable)/WL letter that I've been waiting for since 1/17.

2/9 I received the letter from Georgetown today- I am on their Preferred Waitlist. At least it's an improvement over last year!

2/26 Acceptance e-mail from Cornell on my lunch break!

2/28 small letter stating I've been placed on the Preferred Waitlist at BC unless I don't respond within two weeks. I will not be responding. Also, the Cornell status checker still says complete (though I received the official acceptance via mail today).

3/1 Received notice of Dean's Scholarship from Vanderbilt. This means I'm definitely withdrawing from W&L.

3/3 Withdrew via email from W&L.

3/10 I got my award from Michigan today. Still no word from my pending four schools.

3/12 Ding from Yale! At least my first ding of the cycle was a good one. Small envelope postmarked 3/10-it was sent bulk mail.

3/20 I came home from dogsitting this whole week to find that I have been placed on "Hold" at Columbia. Submitted LOCI and LOR from current employer.

3/31 I just got back from visiting Cornell (which I love) yesterday; I got notice that along with everyone else on LSN a decision has been made on my UVA app; also got the "send us a LOCI" email from Columbia (which I already did)...

4/2 Priority non-resident WL at UVA.

4/7 I have decided to skip the whole UVA interview thing after my visit to Michigan this weekend as I have decided that Cornell is the place I should be! Withdrew from Vandy.

4/10 WHAT! NYU acceptance- this one I have to consider.

4/15 Hold changed to Reserve/WL by Columbia.

Also, NYU money tonight. The difference is now only 10k, so I'm especially torn.

4/16 Deposit to Cornell after I didn't hear from them on an extension so I could visit NYU.

4/20 went to ASD at NYU this weekend- loved it- this is where I will be going to law school. Withdrew from Michigan and Cornell (also asked for a refund at Cornell as they granted me an extension 2 days after the deadline- worth a try). I will be sending "decline" letters to all the waitlists I haven't withdrawn from this weekend.

I applied days earlier than you, but though my files were complete, the school sent me no emails whatsoever, be it 'received' or 'complete'.. seeing that the school already reached a decision on you makes me wonder what's wrong.. hmmm any thoughts? :) btw, congratulations to your acceptances to great schools! :)

  • BC Waitlist Question
  • Saturday, March 01 2008 at 09:20 AM

I'm curious - were you on the regular waitlist or the priority waitlist for BC? Do you know if there's a difference. I'm also on the WL so I'm curious - thanks!

  • bc waitlist
  • Monday, March 03 2008 at 04:42 PM

Yeah I withdrew today. I'm not going to wait around when I have a really good scholarship at GW. But yeah it sucks. I called BC today actually and they said there was only one waitlist. I mean seriously why call it "priority" - that's so misleading.

- WISHER23
  • Hope so!

I'm submitting my SC fin. aid. docs today, so I hope that goes well! Congrats on your fantastic options and I'm still crossing my fingers for us and our last few schools!!

Looks like we got the same letter from CLS. Hope they accept us both!

  • CONGRATULATIONS!!!

You deserve it! Just wondering, snail mail or email?

I hope that's what it means! The whole CLS deferral thing has been kinda stressing, but it'll be nice to have a resolution soon. Are you planning on going to the NYU ASW next Friday?

- lapaloma
  • Congrats!
  • Sunday, April 13 2008 at 02:55 PM

On NYU!

  • Nice!
  • Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 12:20 PM

Good luck with your visit!! As for me, the increase in USC $ is the result of an appeal email I sent. How did you hear from Columbia?

  • NYU $$
  • Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 04:50 PM

Congrats! Thinking about heading to NYC in the next few weeks (maybe maybe this weekend?) so I can make a decision about my waitlists. How long will you be visiting?

- lapaloma
  • NYC
  • Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 09:04 PM

My plans are way up in the air, but at least my best friend lives in the area so I can crash with him. I'll let you know if I'll be in the mix, but otherwise I hope that you have a great weekend with NYU and your bf. I'll be getting down with your alma mater on Friday.
