10/31-Complete at William and Mary via e-mail
10/31-Complete at GWU after asking them about my status. My app has actually been complete for some time now, but this is just the date I found out.
11/12-Still waiting on a dean's cert for Cornell...but my app has been under review for the past 2 or 3 weeks.
11/14-Finally went complete at Cornell...that's everywhere. Now time for the wait....
11/15- IN AT WILLIAM AND MARY!!!! It came priority mail. I'm so excited....
Also received a $6,000 renewable scholarship.
12/7- Received an acceptance at W&L via an e-mail from the admissions director. I'm very excited!!!
12/18-Received deferral letter from Cornell.
12/17-Rejected at NYU...hurt my feelings just a little bit but def expected.
12/22-Placed on preferred waitlist at G-town a week after my interview
12/28- My boyfriend called me today to let me know that I received an e-mail from GW congratulating me on my acceptance. I can't believe I got in!!!
1/10- I'm getting just a little anxious to hear from Vandy. I wonder what is taking so long....
1/11-Deferred at Penn
1/16-I came home today to a huge acceptance package from Vanderbilt!!!!! My status changed to decision mailed on the 11th and I was starting to wonder what was taking so long to hear from them. I'm beyond excited.
1/28-This month has been a little slower than I thought it would be...
1/30- Received an e-mail from W&L. I got a scholarship for $15,000/yr. That's a lot of money...
Also deferred at Northwestern...they won't re-evaluate my application until May?!?!?!
2/7- Received a phone call from Monica Ingram tonight letting me know I was accepted at Texas. I def thought I wasn't getting in because I was out of state and it seemed like forever since I applied.
2/8-I'm very excited to now have Texas as an option. Financial aid is going to play a big role in where I decide to attend. I already have debt from undergrad and would prefer to add as little to it as possible.
2/13-Rejected at Columbia but it's ok because I only applied because they gave me a fee waiver
2/21-Waitlisted at Duke via e-mail. I really am not that concerned about it and prob won't stay on bc I already live in the area and really don't want to go to school here.
3/1-Received a letter from Vandy offering me a $20,000/yr renewable Dean's scholarship. I am completely floored. I can't believe they gave me any money at all especially this much. I was almost 100% sure I'd be heading to GW in the fall and now I don't know. I wish GW would give me any kind of money (not that I'm very hopeful). I'll be planning a trip to Nashville in the very near future.
3/3-Planning a trip to visit W&L and W&M since I probably won't be able to make the ASD.
3/12-Waitlisted at Penn
4/2-Originally deferred at Chicago on 2/5, now placed on the waitlist
4/3- General waitlist at UVA
4/5-Received $15,000 from Texas over three years as well as Texas residency. Since money is important to my decision I probably won't really consider them anymore....unless I can get some need based aid.
4/7-Choosing a school has not been as easy as I thought it would be. I have to make my mind up in the next few days because of seat deposit deadlines. And who knows, maybe I'll make it off of one of my many waitlists this summer.
4/11-Completely shocked...accepted at Cornell via e-mail!!!!
4/30-So I ended up paying the first deposit at both GW and Cornell. I paid the GW deposit before I even knew I got into Cornell. I still love GW but Cornell is hard to pass up and it's not like GW gave me a ton of fin aid. I'm trying to hang on for one of my waitlisted schools which has been my absolute first choice the entire cycle. I'll prob give them another month to see if anything happens but if not I prob will be at Cornell in the fall. Waitlists suck!!!
5/15-Pending any waitlists I'll be at Cornell in the fall. I received a substantial amount of money and cannot justify going to GW and taking on a huge amount of debt.
5/16- Rejected from NU after being deferred...I'm actually suprised because I thought I withdrew a while ago...LOL.
7/4-Rejected off the Penn waitlist about a week or two ago and forgot to update my profile.
7/12-Rejected off UVA waitlist on a Saturday and at around 8 or 9 pm...nice LOL.
