As a side note, every so often experiences come along that demonstrate that a niche skill (like caligraphy) can be very impressive and valuable. This was one of them.

Where did you find that WUSTL's seat deposit is binding? I read through my acceptance, and it isn't mentioned. That will really place pressure on my decision...

What's up everyone. School in the 50s, top 5%/top 15 ordinal. Lots of softs, diversity, work experience. low 160s/~3.3 in undergrad. I'll update this as things roll in.

I have no idea how this will go. Rank took forever due to a grade delay, same with official transcripts. Sucks that I lost time because of someone else but what are you going to do. I'm just now going complete at most places. Best of luck to everyone!

ACCEPTED AT: GULC (EA, first semester = above top 5%, status changed with everyone else who got in, can't remember the date), Berkeley (morning of 7/8 via e-mail)

OUT AT: Nowhere

WAITING ON: Duke, Michigan, Penn (in review), NYU, Columbia, Harvard

Pure conjecture but I think it went well. I doubt I hurt myself at least. I was able to introduce myself and talk about my interest in the school. Again pure conjecture but I think on a personal level I made a good impression on the assistant director of admissions. We will see if it worked.

07/07 just went to "decision reached; notification pending" at Washington and Lee.... no e-mail yet. W&L is the lowest ranked school I applied too so not sure if I am accepted if I will attend.

Hoping for some good news though.

I take it neither of you were holdovers from ED? My status checker hasn't changed since May.

I was a holdover and from what I recall my status changed after the early decision was mailed to me. After that, there was no change until the final decision was made and it was something to the effect of "decision made" but did not indicate acceptance or rejection. Because I had not received a phone call I figured I was rejected, but the call came about 30 minutes after my status checker changed.

Yep. I would expect calls to be made this Friday. From what I remember, apps went under review and calls were made that Friday. Good luck everyone.

Doubtless a lot of people will not agree, but I say take the resident tuition and run with it if it's ~20k.

Edit - congrats on the acceptance. That combined with in-state tuition is, pardon the language, fucking awesome.


Hey thanks, It is a pretty good deal, but im not sure if I can pass up the better job opportunities at WUSTL.

In at UCLA today via phone call.

Stats: from T50s school/3.666 GPA/Top 10% (though probably more like 6-7% -- school doesn't give rank above 10%).

Waiting on: NYU, Columbia.

Has anyone thought about doing a 1 hr special on your transfer decision? :lol:

When i get my rejection letter from GULC this sat/monday, im going to make a 1 hr tv special. Then i want to invite some of you guys to weigh in on whether or not I will get in. At the end of the hour, I will open my letter and see the verdict.... :lol:

Yes, I've started internally comparing myself to LeBron. Although I guess this situation is the inverse of 'The Decision.'
