I actually just checked my status checker for USC and it says Decision Finalized so now I have to wait and see. Didn't apply to Emory even though I received snail mail and emails from them. I am actually surprised with WUSTL too. But I thought it may have been my personal statement. Which addressed the problems of race, class and society. In particular concerning the Black male and how we are viewed in today's society and forced to assimilate into a culture and country who doesn't really care for us as individuals. I was very candid with my words to say the least.
I kinda talked about that in my diversity statement, but I didn't go as far as saying society doesn't care about us.
Will keep that in mind if I decide to wait and take another grab. Your WL and Chicago kinda makes me wish I applied higher because it looks like you aimed at similar schools like me. Of course problem is, all of the high ranked ones I'm looking at will likely be near sticker, if not sticker... and I'm not sure that's a good idea, except, maybe Duke... maybe.
Decisions. Of course, my mother and family want me to go straight in, saying don't worry about the debt, but of course, they aren't offering to pay, nor could they even if they wanted to, so I'm still in between a rock and a hard place.
