Yeah... I still have GTown, Penn, NYU, and Columbia left. Although, my status updated at GTown and no access to the admitted students site which is making me nervous.

Come on Penn!

Did all H admits get that deadline? If so the H cycle is set to an earlier schedule than previous years when many people were accepted around July 20th. Guess those of us who have not heard are likely dings.


HLS traditionally gives transfers exactly one week from whenever they're notified to decide. Having spoken with a bunch of transfer admits, I'm pretty sure they're doing the same this year. I think Vanwinkle's hypothesis of another wave on or around 7/25 is definitely possible.

Also, I'm not surprised things are moving earlier for HLS because OCI got bumped to a week or two earlier than it was last year.

Wouldn't the oci change suggest that there wouldn't be a july20ish wave? Last year it seemed like only a handful admitted this week and then the vast majority next week. I think it's clear that the vast majority of admits have already gone out. Do you really think the huge July 20 wave from last year was a "let's see who accePts from July 12" wave. Also, this year ppl accepted on the 8th had until the 22nd (2weeks)

The only thing I can think of then is your school's crappy curve.

+1. There is someone else ITT outside the top 5% at a lower ranked school, but with a much higher GPA on a really generous curve, who already got into CLS & Penn.

Any idea whether Columbia is done admitting for this week?

I'm sure they are. Their deposit for the recent acceptances is Monday the 18th, so once they see the yield from that first batch, it will give them an idea as to what flexibility they will have with the 2nd wave. So I can't imagine them accepting even more people before they know who is coming from wave 1.

Interesting.

I hope I go complete in time for it.

Do you think I should send the remaining schools the quintile breakdown? The highest GPA this year was a 3.8.

That's interesting b/c last year Columbia's "first wave" consisted of accepting transfer applicants in 2 or 3 consecutive days. The "first wave" didn't happen all in one day. However, you might be right about this year. It seems that quite a few applicants were admitted to CLS yesterday, suggesting the "first wave" is finished.

Not me. I'm still at "completion pending" almost 2 weeks after submitting. The bigger this first wave is, the lower my chances get :(

I think not being complete during the first wave is a GOOD thing. Those of us that were complete during the first wave got passed over for acceptances.

Hope you're right! (Though, really I hope we all get in). I'm hoping I do the old completion pending->complete->decision routine today.

Seems like you really do go "complete" at CLS two weeks after submitting, since I hit that date and went complete today. Hang in their, kaiser (though I personally prefer NYU to CLS since the transfer animosity at CLS has been brutal the past few years if you check out the old OCI threads).

That doesn't mean I wouldn't go to CLS in a heartbeat if accepted, though. (Mostly since I think I'm never hearing from NYU)

keg411 - Are we in a similar situation?

Penn: 7/8-7/11 UR
NYU: UR 7/4
CLS: Complete

I went complete at GTown yesterday, but think it's a ding since I haven't got access to the admitted students site.

agreement. i went complete on 7/7 at CLS and didn't hear a peep yesterday. i really expected i would have at least heard from more than 3 schools by now.

i'm still waiting at stanford, columbia, chicago, nyu, and michigan, all of which i would take over my only acceptance so far (NU).

Oh, Columbia... I applied on 6/26, went to Completion Pending on 6/29, and here I sit, def more than 2 weeks later, still sitting at Pending. I e-mailed them, but of course I haven't heard back. Grr

I'm not UR at NYU -- I'm not even complete at NYU :lol:! I just went complete at CLS today. The Penn thing is right, though. (However, there were already rejections in that batch, so I'm guessing we're just being "held" to see what the first-wave yield is).

I also still have a NU app outstanding and have been complete for a while. I'm hesitant to withdraw, because I kind of like the idea of being in Chicago with the crazy BP'ers.
