Which schools admit this early?!

Postby vcap180 » Thu Sep 29, 2016 11:28 am

Are there any schools in the top 50 or so (aside from the duke and uva ED programs) that are known for admitting/rejecting super early in the cycle?

I have finally submitted a bunch of apps, and the thought of waiting for a few months to hear back is torture. I need to get at least one admission under my belt to ease the anxiety lol

WUSTL and W&M have already begun sending out admits. And LSN shows UGA has too.

Get used to waiting. Look on lsn or past threads for the schools to which you are applying and see when the eariest acceptances have been...
Eta: or look at the current threads to see if people are being accepted...

I don't see how this is helpful. Won't hearing about all the schools sending decisions just make you more anxious that you haven't heard anything yet?

Also, if anyone's hearing back this early from Duke, I'm guessing they're priority track. I doubt they've started on regular decisions yet.

Sorry to hear you don't see how it's helpful. Feel free to keep it movin', boss!

Nice!! Are you from Florida? How do you stack up numbers-wise, if you're willing to say?

Is priority track essentially auto admit? I've been waiting to get my retake score back, but I'm tempted to apply now...

no


Well, it's not exactly auto-admit, but it's a pretty strong indicator that they're going to admit you, barring any massive problems with your application. But I'd wait until you have your retake score anyway. The real benefit of priority track is the quick turnaround.

From Miami actually, grew up about 10 minutes from U.M. My stats are not fantastic, 158/3.07, just had a great PS (this is what the dean told me), and really good resume. According to my phone call I was the 3rd acceptance this cycle.
