Strong LoRs, Good PS


I am applying fairly late in the cycle, not interested in waiting a year. No safety schools. One why x essay (UCLA)*. Holding on tight and bracing for impact, lets do this.

Prediction: I predict I'll be in at most 15-19 schools, I think Ill be waitlisted or rejected at most 7-14, with a decent shot at NW and UMich (fingers crossed). I think I will get denied from anything under 7, with the exception of Stanford, whom I predict will admit me with $$.

Edit: wrote why essays for Duke and UMich later on

Great profile! I like your predictions too. How come you predict stanford will be different than the rest of the top 7? Im curious as it is also one of my reach schools :) also - I applied late dec so I dont think applying now is actually that late. Best of luck!

Thank you! Thats reassuring, Ive just read that a good majority of the decisions are handed out before February, so I am expecting a bit a of ding because of my timing. Also, I feel like everyone is afforded one extremely bold prediction in their cycle and I decided to pick Stanford as mine. Crossing fingers, hoping they see something they like or make some clerical error in my favor pretty much.

Congrats on Texas! Can I ask what it says on your USC status tracker? I have "decision finalized" on Mar 9, but haven't gotten any email so far... hope that doesn't mean rejection by mail...

Thank you. My USC status tracker says Waitlisted and was updated immediately. I got the full waitlist letter in the email. I have no idea what the decision finalized status means, unfortunately. Delivering a rejection that way seems pretty lame, but who knows. I would maybe skim the TLS USC forum to see if anyone was in a similar situation. Best of luck.
