Funny point:

Chicago persuades people to go there by offering them a scholarship named Rubenstein.

Harvard persuades people to go there by giving them a phone call from a guy named Rubenstein.

And given both, many would choose the latter.

WL at GWU :(

Almost worse than a ding... I think I'd rather have a clean break than have to decide if it's worth waiting it out/putting in the extra effort of new transcripts, LORs, LOCIs, etc.

FTFM.

I wouldn't. But it us easier to say that when the choice has been made for you by the fact that neither option is on the table.

Hey! How goes it with Penn? I'm pretty sure you're in a better place with a "hold," than with a waitlist.

Congrats. Your response makes it sound like they are atop your list. I would be surprised if I didn't end up there. Congrats again and hope to see you in Charlottesville.

I will probably try to make the one in March. I am in Virginia so I don't get any help for travel costs.

sorry to hear that (mainly b/c you would've had diff results with an extra .03 on ur gpa).


how did you address your gpa within your application?

A well deserved penance. I attempted to make no excuses but to explain it as a mixture of family issues, immaturity, and pursuing an area of study out of obligation and not actual interest. My transcript is a mess and screams "laziness", so I knew schools would feel wary about it. I just know that some school that takes a chance on me is going to be pleasantly surprised!

Just want to point out that non-T14 acceptances are welcomed, appreciated, and celebrated in the URM forum. :)
