Every school has a low median, unless you went ivy where people actually care. This was a discussion yesterday in one of the forums. My schools median is 143 and its a public university. Pretty crazy

Status check updates. I was stuck at complete on the majority of my apps for a while.

Yes, but they apparently love sitting on most URM applicants.

No status checker updates for Michigan, Penn, Duke and Columbia for me. UVA may have burned my files. Not a damn peep since late October. :?

I gotta give props to NYU though. The same day I went complete was the same day I went UR. I sent that app in with a prayer and three Hail Marys.

Chi, Cornell, USC, W&M are still waiting for my Dec score.

Did you submit Duke before PT emails came out?

And for me Penn has been silent.
In at Duke
God know what's happening in Charlottesville
NYU hasn't moved since complete/UR
USC is on UR2
Cornell is on their second date
And held at W&M :|

Oh, and GW is ignoring me.

Held at where? GTFO! That's cray cray. Are you gonna withdraw your app?

I think you'll hear from Cornell and USC soon....def NYU by January. You got this!

I think I'm going to continue to ride out W&M. I can't lie I'm a little surprised. Like, my numbers aren't high enough for YP so I guess they just don't like me. Honestly though it has me super paranoid about everywhere else.

W&M Holds everyone, lets in people who they are somewhat certain will attend, for the most part almost everyone gets held until they have a better idea of what the class looks like.

I highly doubt Duke is a fluke. They seen how awesome you were and snatched you up so that says a lot about you. I was held at W&M too.

In at GW, NYU, and UC Berkeley this week! Columbia contacted me about submitting my fall grades before they continue their review, and I just went under review for Duke. Guess they're squeezing in a lot of work with the holidays coming up next week...
