Your numbers are competitive for Michigan, Duke, and Cornell.

You should have decent chances at Michigan, Berkeley, UVA ED, Cornell, and Northwestern (with WE). A few LSNers have even pulled NYU with those numbers.

Thing is though, I'm applying late in the cycle. UVA dinged me already.

3.37/168

Only ended up sending in two T14 apps: Michigan and Cornell.

Only acceptance so far is UGA, but I only applied two weeks ago. 18 apps still out. Here's to waiting!

Not so great. It seems like the T-14 is doing it's best to boost its numbers and those below to grab students who might otherwise end up in higher ranked schools (were there not 400,000 extra applicants this year).

T14:
Cornell - Put on reserve, withdrew
GULC - "Held"
Penn - Rejected (really shouldn't have sent a PS that was a page and a half over the limit - oops)
Everywhere else - waiting for a response, expecting bad news

T30:
UCLA - Waitlisted
Vanderbilt - In
WUSTL - In
BU - In w/ 15k/year
GW - In w/ 30k/year plus 1st year housing
UW - In w/ nothin
BC - In

T61:
L&C - In w/ 30k/year

Edit: 3.78/167, hard softs

So far I've been deferred/held at FIVE T14s: Georgetown, Cornell, Northwestern, Michigan and Berkeley. SO frustrating!

Yay, a thread for people like me! I have a 3.6X/166. So far, I've gotten into WUSTL, BU, Emory, BC, and W&L (w/102K, woot). They're all great schools, but I wonder what would've happened if I had scored closer to my PT average. Oh well, I'm really happy with my cycle so far given my numbers. At least I haven't been rejected from anywhere yet...here's hoping that my luck holds out for USC, UCLA, and Gtown.

Good luck everyone!

I think this is the closest to a borderline T-14er. 166/3.7.-3.8 or 167/3.5-3.7

+1, the former would be me. Of the schools ranked 15th, I'm in at one (Texas) and out at one (UCLA). I've racked up a few T14 dings but am still clutching a dwindling hope that Michigan, G-town, Cornell or Cal -- all of which have had my app since, oh, September-ish -- really liked my PS but are just too bashful to tell me.

Not that I'm not thrilled about UT (and Emory) -- I might even prefer to head to Austin over Ithaca at this point.

169/3.5 here!

Dinged at Penn and NU
Held at Cornell (and quasi-held at Michigan)
Waitlisted at GTown

In at: Top-20 and Top-30 schools.

Still waiting on Chicago (hah!), Duke and UVA. I'm not all that optimistic.

167/3.8 here.

No T14 accepts yet:

In: UT, WUSTL, GW, BU, BC

Out: Michigan, UVA

Pending: Berk, Duke, Cornell, Vandy, UCLA, Georgetown (requested interview)

To be honest, I don't think our position is as bad as it seems. With the job climate as it is, I'd say spending the $$ for full tuition at 6-14 versus full rides at GW or WUSTL is just not worth it. But it would be nice to have the option :)

Ahoy!! 3.85/168 here.

In : W&M Fellowship + stipend
Waiting on : Penn, Berkeley, Duke, UVA, NYU (harhar), Cornell, Georgetown, Texas, UCLA, GW, BC, Minnesota, WUSTL.

Didn't get aps in until mid to late January, really worried this'll completely kill my chances (especially at Berkeley and Penn... come on dreamboat!)

Edit : In at BU 2/12
