Worth retaking a 176? I'm pretty sure it's my 3.0 that landed me on these WLs...

No way is it worth retaking. Can you get promoted at work? Or get a new LOR?

did you apply late in the cycle? If I were you and didn't get in anywhere from the waitlists, I would keep the 176 and work/relax for a year and apply the next cycle really really early.

I'm just hoping GW isn't "politely rejecting" me.

Nope they aren't. They flat out rejected me for PT with a 163/3.65. You're a lucky one, they like you!


That actually makes me feel a little better! Thanks!

I'm glad my unfortunate events can make others feel better, lol.
