Additional info & updates

*Scholarships are listed per year*

-12/09/10: Rejected at Fordham via snail mail & status checker.

-12/16/10: In at Santa Clara via status checker. Letter via snail mail a few days later with Emery merit scholarship - $15,500/yr. contingent on top 25% or so. Feels good to have my first acceptance!

-01/04/11: In at Southwestern via email and checker

-01/04/11: Rejected at Boston University via snail mail.

-01/07/11: Decision rendered via status checker at Boston College. Probably rejected, but will have to wait for snail mail letter to figure out what the decision actually is...

-01/08/11: Officially rejected at BC via snail mail. No love from the east coast whatsoever!

-01/11/11: Got the pseudo-hold email from Dean Z at Michigan today. Don't really know what to make of it. At least I wasn't an auto reject. I would love to go there!

-01/19/11: Waitlisted at Cardozo via email. May withdraw because I would never pay full price there. I essentially only applied because they emailed me a fee waiver.

-01/21/11: Rejected at UVA via email. Meh...did not come as a surprise in the least, especially considering their in-state quotas, the fact that I did not write a "Why UVA," & the fact that I did not apply "ED."

Also, accepted at La Verne via snail mail. $39,000 per year. Renewable based on academic performance.

-01/24/11: Admitted at Chapman via status checker. Waiting on the snail mail acceptance package.

-01/25/11: Decision rendered at Loyola via status checker. Should receive decision letter within 7 business days.

-01/26/11: Snail mail acceptance letter from Chapman. $33,000 per year contingent upon a 3.0 GPA.

-01/27/11: Dinged at UCLA via email.

-01/28/11: In at Loyola. Got package today via snail mail. $87,000 spread evenly over 3 years if I maintain top 30%. Pretty nice offer. Santa Clara was my top choice, but now I am leaning towards Loyola.

Dinged at Berkeley via email. Expected, but still hurts a little.

-02/01/11: Waitlisted at Wisconsin today via email.

-02/10/11: Waitlisted at Hastings via email.

-02/25/11: Waitlisted at Michigan (via email) and Davis (via status checker). Michigan is my absolute number one choice/ dream school. Going to ride these 2 out.

-03/01/11: Withdrew my applications from Cardozo, Southwestern, & La Verne.

-03/07/11: Received a fee waiver from U Penn via email. Their deadline was Feb. 15th. I'm so confused....I def would've applied if this was given to me 4 MONTHS AGO!

-03/21/11: Rejected by Duke via email. Finally...

-03/24/11: Declined Chapman's offer.

-03/25/11: Rejected by UCI via snail mail. Couldn't care less at this point. Also, the letter had grammatical errors and was all smeared at the bottom - classy UCI. Hoping for a miracle from USC. If not, Loyola here I come.

-03/28/11: Withdrew from Wisconsin waitlist.

-03/30/11: Declined Santa Clara's offer. Their scholarship was sub-par compared to what Loyola offered.

-04/01/11: WL'd at USC via email.

-05/31/11: Michigan status checker says "Decision." Also, I received a letter in the mail saying that I am officially cut from the WL :(

-07/11/11: Withdrew from the Hastings and Davis waitlists. LA it is.

-08/10/11: IN OFF THE WL AT USC!!!

Yea, I'm afraid scrowell is correct. Gotta love obscure Seinfeld references.

Thanks!

Good luck at USC! And hopefully you can get off one of those WLs soon.

Yes, I'm Cuban. I do believe it has helped me this cycle, I got into alot of reaches. However, I have strong softs and wrote "Why X" essays for most schools, which I think helped alot. If you are looking to snag some reaches, I would apply in the midwest, due to their lack of hispanics and diversity in general. "Other-Hispanic's" tend to get a URM-type boost at schools like IUB, UIUC and Notre Dame.

No problem, it was a little hard to withdraw from Michigan 2 years in a row. I guess it wasn't meant to be. I will probably withdraw from USC soon. I think a lot of people are holding onto multiple acceptances right now, but movement should start soon. Best of luck!

i dont understand why you didnt wanna pass for a mexican? I mean I know u rep cuba but man that Fordham and UCLA reject would easily be an accept if you told them you were mexican.
