Get the email today? Did your status checker get updated today or yesterday or something? Stats?

July 5th...that's a quick turnaround. Congrats though.

my status still has a date of June 27, and I'm assuming the quick turn around is because they want to fill spots quickly. Not sure if I should pay the deposit...still holding out for Mich or Northwestern, but doubt I'll hear back from either of them before July 5

Were you previously waitlisted or are you hearing back for the first time?

My turnaround was pretty quick: about a week after my application went complete

I got another status update today. Says my application is complete. On my previous update (6/29) it said my application was complete. So are they going to review it soon? Thanks!

I forget if it was this thread or another, but weren't you like top 5% at a t30? Maybe I'm getting posters confused. If that's the case though, seems like auto-admit stats to GULC

I went complete on 7/19 and got in on 7/22, and I was definitely not auto-admit (top 10% at a TT).

Status: Application Completed 6/29

Maybe I'll find out this week based on what everyone else is saying.

4.09 GPA at T2 school. I was feeling very confident until I read this thread.

Edit: 2nd tier school

So I figured. GULC seems to punish those applying from schools with lower curves. 3.77 at my school is top 2%

Offered admission to GULC today. I have until the 13th to submit my deposit. That seems longer than I expected based on everybody else's feedback.

Thanks for the congrats. My school doesn't rank, but I would be very surprised if I were not in the top 1-3 students.

Yeah your GPA is above 4.0. You'll get in somewhere better.

Seconded. Frustrating having a lower curve than other places.

Have any waitlisted applicants heard anything?
