One of those "why do you keep listing this as a T2" schools (with me), I'm pretty sure her GPA is like 3.85 (the certain points are 3.97>her>3.6), definitely in the top 5%, interesting activism softs.

I appreciate you sharing!

This. Admissions told me that transfer admissions were rolling... so it is possible that these date changes may or may not amount to anything.

Can you ask your friend about the timing... Did she use Admitted Student Website and generate a user/pass before she got an acceptance email AND did they happen the same day or a day apart???

I assume this is what you meant by that...

I just wanted to weigh in that I also got an email acceptance. Shocked as hell, and very grateful. I wasn't even sure they had my application yet.

Mid 30s school, top 15%, non-traditional student (but not URM)

Have any of the people who had 06/20 updates noticed that their "Country of Citizenship" updated to "USA"? I noticed that the EA applicants mentioned that it changed for them earlier in this thread and am wondering what it might mean.

Hello, everyone.

Checking in and joining the waiting game. I applied RD (props to those of you staying strong post-EA cycle; I'm impatient after a week!); App received 6/14 > App complete 6/20 >> waiting game

Here's my obligatory stat sheet:

Current School 2013 USNWR: 40-45
Applying to: Columbia, NYU, GULC
GPA & Rank: 3.82/4.33, 9/2XX - Top 5%
Journal: Not yet released
Reason: Looking for a strong international program in a city conducive to building strong international relations (I'm interested in joining degrees with SFS and would love to chat with anyone also interested in post-transfer joint degrees)

I'm checking in also on the NYU and Columbia threads; not sure who else is on those as well as this one. Best of luck to each and all of you!

Obligatory stats: 3.97 (curse you, Contracts, for ruining my perfect number) from a 130-150 school, no interesting softs at all, #1 in class. Had a weird update last week on 6/20 - got updated to "Complete - 6/24. Got the email 6/24 at 1:29 PST.

Good luck to everyone else!

No. I sent email LOCI on Sunday and didn't get a confirmation response from Ms. Tingler. In the past, she has usually responded w/ the letter was added to your file.
