Visits: Case, Pitt (liked Pitt better, but Case is better for what I want to do), American (dinner was good), Georgetown (loved it), Northwestern (loved Chicago)
Northwestern interview on 12/9 went well.
12/15 - Email from Georgetown clarifying something on my app - 2nd email saying she was forwarding everything to the committee!
12/15 - Complete at Fordham via status checker
12/22 - Complete at American per email.
1/2 - Complete at Columbia per email
1/11 - In at Georgetown! Party!
1/17 - I've probably been complete at Pitt for a while, but I just emailed to confirm that fact. Response said decisions will go out at the end of the week.
1/18 - Response from Case to email asking about completion status - probably have been complete a while.
1/20 - Deferral from Fordham - will probably not return the letter of interest - who needs them and their yield-protecting selves?
1/24 - Nice and informative acceptance letter from Pitt. My husband really wants to stay here, so we'll see how much money they offer.
1/27 - Application "under review" per email from Boalt.
1/28 - Acceptance packet, priority mail, from American. They have a joint program with the university in my French hometown that is very interesting...
1/29 - Application complete via late Sunday evening email from NYU. There's no way I haven't been complete there for at least a month.
2/4 - Scholarship letter from Pitt. 10K/year, renewable. Been a slow week!
2/6 - Complete at Northwestern via status check.
2/9 - Acceptance letter from Case Western.
2/11 - Deferral from Columbia. Will sent updated resume and letter of interest. Sad :(
2/14 - Email to check online status, acceptance from Northwestern!!
3/12 - Email from Case Western - full Dean's scholarship - 33,300 a year. Holy CARP. I was getting ready to withdraw and now I don't know what to do.
3/16 - FINALLY complete at Cornell after they lost my first dean's cert. Wonder if I'll get a decision in time?
3/17 - Pitt decided to match the offer from Case, and is now awarding me full in-state tuition. Hot DAMN.
3/22 - So I never returned that Fordham letter of continuing interest, and I'd considered myself withdrawn, but they decided to send me a rejection letter today just for the heck if it. Updating to reflect that so the next person to get a yield protection ding from them doesn't feel alone.
4/3 - Withdrawn from American after visit.
4/9 - Came back from a lovely vacation to find a rejection letter from Berkeley and a deferral from Cornell. BAH!
4/17 - Withdrew from Pitt. Good luck to those on the waitlist!
4/19 - 50K over three years from Northwestern. Back to square one with the decision making process.
4/20 - Waitlisted at NYU.
4/26 - Sending deposit to Northwestern. Will attend unless I get off the Columbia or NYU waitlists before signing a lease in Chicago. OMG, I am going to freeze to death.
5/1 - "Reserve" at Columbia, which is what I was expecting, and what the lady on the phone sort of implied when I called last week. Withdrew from Case (hope they give all that money to someone who needs it) and Georgetown, in an effort to mentally commit myself to NU.
7/1 - Because I never responded to their second waitlist letter ( a deferral and then TWO waitlistings, from one school!), Columbia thinks I'm withdrawn. Fine by me, we'de signed a lease in Chicago.
7/7 - Cornell deferred me 3 months ago and just now got around to waitlisting me. Withdrawing.
