Where to apply?

Postby Mike12188 » Tue Nov 16, 2010 11:24 pm

171/3.3

Applied:
Georgetown (waiting for waitlist notification)
Cornell
UPenn (ED)
UVA (RD but if waitlisted at Penn then I will send in ED)
Vandy (Don't know why. Intrigued by fee waiver I guess)

Now I need some advice on a target schools. I'm thinking GW or BU or BC. I want to stay east, wouldn't mind DC or Boston. I have a feeling GW is more realistic and forgiving of my GPA :oops: I don't feel like paying for more than one app fee. (I know it's stupid to apply to only a few schools as a splitter, but I'd rather take a year off and ED UVA Sept. 1st next year than attend any of my safeties). So my question is BU or GW.

I emailed BU for a fee waiver last week, and they gave me one a few days later. You could try that, then do both! If not, then flip a coin, since you won't be going to either anyway :)

Given this, I wouldn't apply to either one.

WTF BU told me they only do requests for need-based waivers. GW it is, BU hates me.
