What do you think about this round? Dings/WL/Acceptance?

Perhaps if they were truly "auto-admits," then they would have gone under DR (and been admitted) in the first wave. This wave is probably mixed, but who knows? Just sit tight and wait for email/postal mail to arrive.


Argue what? Those are very strong numbers. But if you look at what gulc deigned an "auto-admit," judging by first wave RD admits -- every single one was number 1 or top 1% of their class.

Auto-admits, imo, are first-wave admits. That train has left the station for gulc, so anything goes from here on out.

UR since 6-2, DR today.
Top 2% (4th) at TTTT.

Applied to both, no change in program status.

T20 top 5%. Deferred EA, applied to both. Still UR. For those of you DR check if your status changed to just pt or ft. That seems to be an indication of an acceptance.

I could not agree more. If they were truly auto-admits (at least in GULC's opinion), they would have already been admitted by now.....

I agree, but why don't the people that have T30 5% still under review and no one whos T4 10%+ is still under review?

It seems logical to do 1 round of acceptances, then WL/Reject then more acceptances.
I searched some GULC 0L decisions and it seems that sometimes they mark decided and then wait a couple days before they send you a waitlist email. FWIW

No this is exactly why. They dont want to reject anyone before the deposits are due. They see that there are a decent amount of deposits paid. Now they can determine who they want to reject.

That isn't the point. There probably will be some dings this round. There are more applicants than spots available so the adcomms have to clean house at some point. It was just your conclusory comments about auto-admits and such that were dumb.

Anyhow, good luck to all applicants this round.

I think your letter will be key. If you get good/neutral news then I can rest a little bit.

Has anyone (last batch or this batch) received anything from GULC via email? or has it been strictly snail mail?
