Good luck with the cycle!

Thursday, October 01 2009 at 08:00 PM

Yea, I had an interview with Northwestern's Director of Admissions on 11/3. Did you do an interview?

Congratulations on Fordham
Friday, August 14 2009 at 08:00 PM

and good luck with Georgetown.

Thursday, October 01 2009 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on BU! I just got the phone call myself. Looks like we're application twins after all. =)

beat me!
Thursday, October 01 2009 at 08:00 PM

haha Oops, just noticed that you beat me to a post by 4 minutes. =D Anyways, congrats again!

Congrats yourself! Looks like we have a lot of school overlap. Good luck with Gtown and the rest of your cycle!

Sunday, October 25 2009 at 08:00 PM

I just saw your comment - thank you! Congratulations to you as well. Fordham and BU seem like great options (I don't know enough yet about either school to have a preference, do you have one?) and I wish you lots of luck with the rest!

Sunday, December 13 2009 at 07:00 PM

We have similar numbers but disparate experiences; I look forward to seeing your results. Best of luck!

Thursday, October 01 2009 at 08:00 PM

Sorry to hear that, I thought you would get in for sure. =( Were you placed on the Waiting List (vs. Preferred WL) as well? What's your plan now?

Thursday, October 01 2009 at 08:00 PM

I'll probably email Gtown a brief update on my status and continued interest; maybe submit a rec or 2 if I can round up meaningful ones. I'm leaning towards BU among the 3 acceptances I've received, so I feel like I owe Boston a visit as well. Maybe I'll see you there! ;) Do you have a 2nd choice after Gtown?

Wednesday, September 30 2009 at 08:00 PM

There is no ranking system per se but the regular, preferred, and "select" preferred are three different groups of waitlists. You're on TLS, right? I found out more about it by searching for it there. Good luck!

Thursday, October 01 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! Tough going with our alma maters, though -- just got UCLA's wait list email myself. How was your Northwestern interview?

UW status?
Sunday, October 18 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey, congrats on UW! Just curious, does your status checker still say "In Review"? Did you happen to notice if your mailings section included a decision letter at any time last week, or if it does now? I'm having some weird stuff happening with mine, not sure what to think. Thanks for any info!

Monday, December 07 2009 at 07:00 PM

we have similar numbers and some similar decisions so far. good luck with the rest of your schools!

Monday, December 07 2009 at 07:00 PM

I think I'm leaning towards either FREE or SUN right now. how about you? also, I hear the Georgetown waitlist tends to actually move we can cross our fingers I guess.
