Long acceptance wait, scholarship pending?

Postby lepradillo » Mon Mar 22, 2010 1:34 pm

I'm above the top 75% applicants and will be accepted without question...

Is there a chance the longer they take, they're debating a scholarship offer?

You need to send a LOCI. There is no "accepted without question."

May be true for Michigan... but they do state this:

A decision not to admit a well-qualified candidate for no reason other than a belief that he or she won’t enroll is “yield protecting” and inappropriate—but it’s pretty rare in making an admissions decision that there is just one isolated motivation. There’s a lot of gray. All that gray is why some schools choose to adopt holistic admissions policies in the first place, and to employ humans to implement them in a very time-consuming process, rather than just constructing algorithms and going about the process blind to any factor that doesn’t fit in a database.


So, maybe not directly WLing just because people might not attend, but still being a factor that makes up part of the "grey" area.

UVA, on the other hand, seems quite blatant:

I've decided it's pointless to stress about this at the moment, they were on Spring Break last week.
