Christ. With a 175? Was it YP you think? Did you write "Why UMN?" in your PS?

didn't do a "why" portion, maybe that's part of it. figured that living in MN for seven years would have helped, guess not. no idea if it was YP or not... I mean i at least got WLed at UVA, so I would imagine that i didn't accidentally talk about raping puppies in my PS or something.

Hrmph. From my own informal surveys, it appears that many folks with surprising rejections/waitlists from UMN hadn't written a "Why UMN" portion in their personal statement, whereas those with similar numbers or worse who had written "Why UMN" received acceptances. I'm sure there's nothing categorically wrong with your PS. UMN has just been really particular about it this year. With your numbers I'm positive you'll get into an awesome school.

well, word on the street is that there's a guy on the admissions committee who actively hates kids from my undergrad, maybe that had something to do with it. maybe not.

So I am REALLY impressed with UMN. Both the law school and the chem grad office has been extremely helpful. They have worked with me to create an ad hoc joint degree program, helped me along the way with the status of my application, had students and faculty contact me, and answered all my questions in a timely manner. They make you feel like they really want you to come to their school. Kudos for them. They are winning me over!

Ah!!!! I can't wait to visit in March!!!

Has anyone made up their mind to attend there next fall? I am just holding on to my seat deposit money until I can try to get some scholly money out of them.

I might be? 3 other schools I am considering have their ASW the same weekend though. I haven't received any information regarding it, other than the general date. Has anyone else?

I feel the SAME way...and I'm visiting end of February. If I like it (and I have a feeling I will), I'm definitely going to go! :)

So is it just me or does the email about the Admitted Students Website not include...a link to the Admitted Students Website?
