My preference numbers are actually my chiashu percentages. I saw some others on here use that format and thought it was a good idea.
12-10-07 My first acceptance! U of Miami via snail mail
01-04-2008 Finally starting to go complete after the December retake.
01-22-08 Acceptance to Case Western via email.
01-25-08 DING-Illinois. Found out via status checker. Damn, that's disappointing.
01-30-08 In at Univ. of Washington via email!! Are you kidding me? So surprised and happy right now. Take that Chiashu!
02-02-08 In at Pitt and Temple via snail mail! Pitt sent it to my parent's address which is weird. I love the 'Burgh so I'll have to really think about that one.
02-04-08 Accepted to Loyola-Chicago! My first phone call acceptance, which was pretty cool. Letter to follow.
02-08-08 Letter from Loyola containing scholarship info.
02-11-08 Deferred at UMN, status checker changed on 2/7 and received a small envelope via mail today. Guess I'll be writing a LOCI. Also rejected by GW via snail mail. Not too surprising. Though I must say, their rejection letter was very cordial. Nice touch GW!
02-14-08 rejected by NW. expected, but I'm still a bit bummed.
02-22-08 Accepted to Wisconsin via snail mail! came in a small (and rather thin) white envelope. Great news, Madison is supposed to be amazing.
03-05-08 Its been a while. Nice scholarship from Case today. No other admissions news. I'm in a lull before the storm I suppose.
03-06-08 In at Tulane via status checker!
03-10-08 Received Tulane packet in the mail. I finally understand the "inside-out tote bag" reference. I also received a nice scholarship offer.
03-24-08 Email from Wake Forest. I guess I am waitlisted, but the email was somewhat vague. They are "deferring" a final decision until May 5th and have put me on the "waitlist". so I'm counting it as a waitlist and will probably withdraw my app. As a side note, I sure wish the rest of these schools would just get on with it. why make me wait until April for what are pretty obviously going to be rejections? irritating.
03-27-08 Priority WL at IU-B. This one really blows. They have been one of my top choices all along and based on some of my other acceptances I figured I had a good shot. I'll ride their waitlist for a bit, at least until my seat deposit at UWash is due. Then we'll see.
04-04-08 Holy $%, waitlisted at Michigan! Seriously? I really thought I had no shot. Not an acceptance, but I'll take it. And you better believe I will be riding that waitlist until September if need be.
04-07-08 Rejection from UVa and WL from WashU today. Both are what I expected. I'm withdrawing from WashU. Even though it's a great school I have some other options I like better. Its nice to have heard from almost everyone finally (ahem, Duke, may I have my rejection now so I can be done already).
05-02-08 Email from Wake Forest accepting me off the WL. I have until 5/7 to decide. I am going to decline. Oh, and I was rejected by Duke sometime at the end of April.
05-30-08 Email from UMN. After being deferred for a very long time I was put on the waitlist. I also finally declined admission to Wisconsin. Looks like I'm headed to Washington unless there is a miracle from Michigan.
06-10-08 Email from Michigan letting me know I made their shortened waitlist. That's pretty cool. Still keeping my fingers crossed.
06-16-08 Phone call from IU-B, accepted off the waitlist. I really liked IU when I was there. I'll take a look at the package they're sending me and then make a decision. But I think I will probably decline. We'll see.
