it seems that some people in this group have "solid" numbers. Not auto admit, but solid. Others in this group have almost "auto reject" numbers. I am not sure what this means. Guessing ding and wl?

If they are rejections will they come via email? GULC sent acceptances via snail mail and deferments via email.

Begging for an e-mail. Let's keep it quick and as painless as possible. Waiting a week or two just for rejection snail mail seems especially cruel given the short timeframe of the transfer process

hmm it seems that in 08 they did wl with email and letter.
it just seems odd if this was not a reject pile that they would accept middl tier people before the higher ranked people are reviewed.

That's the only thing I've been thinking of as well... the remaining obvious admits will be getting lots of acceptances next week though from Top 10 schools. Maybe they're keeping it all together--still doesn't make sense, though.

Wanna compile a list of stats for those who are DR?

3%/T40 and Still under Review. And sad. This is a redux of the EA nightmare...And I readily admit, yes, I am whining right now. Sorry.

the thing that doesnt make sense is that we have pretty good stats. not autoadmit but not reject.
10-12% T50 DR both.

That's why you haven't sold me on your reject theory. This is especially true if the people with the least-impressive numbers applied PT.

*include FT/PT/both in your post

Looking at these numbers I think this is a wave of acceptances.

I mean, looking at the transfer database, people w/ good #'s get rejected every year. Sorry if that is the case for you folks.

I'd obviously like to hope that these are acceptance to both full and part time programs - given the range of numbers.

I live in DC so will let you all know as soon as I get anything in the mail (or email of course).

EA they deferred us by e-mail. And in last year's thread, they sent out e-mails for waitlists.
