And damn, I did fill out the question asking where else I was applying. I can't remember what I put. Usually, I attempt a fine range of schools, with the school I'm applying to being somewhere in the middle of that range. Don't want to make them think they are the ultimate reach but can't have them thinking they are the safety either.


Unfortunately I wasn't this meticulous. I feel like they like hearing that they're one of your target schools. I just double checked mine, the schools I listed (strictly based on rankings) were almost all above GMU (but a couple of them were pretty close), so I hope I didn't shoot myself in the foot.

Submitted like 10/10 or 10/11. No idea when I "went complete" as the status checker is horrible.

I dont what people mean by personalized, but it referred to me by my name and used present tense adverbs.

I feel really iffy toward this acceptance though. Still great to have one in the bag.

Good luck to everyone!


Why iffy?

The GMU 2011 graph on LSN is lighting up like a Christmas tree.

Have you checked your email btw?

Yeah I've checked my email + spam box...nothing. I took my phone to get a little problem fixed today and they said it would take 2 weeks to get it back if I wanted them to send it out for repairs, but I said hell no because I need to wait for my GMU call lol This is my first decision from a school so I'm VERY anxious, it's pathetic :oops:

At 5 PM, I'm going to give up and assume it's a waitlist. I'm pretty sure if they were going to reject us, it would have been in the morning.

I spoke with someone at the admissions office & she told me they were done with the first batch of decisions. i asked her when the next one will be sent out & she told me b/c its a rolling admission when they make enough decisions thats when they send them out. they dont sit & review a 100 apps a one time.

I got my YP rejection at 8 in the AM (but perhaps they reject overqualified and underqualified people in different batches...)

Yeah I assume mine is a waitlist at this point. I'm kinda surprised by that though because for the past two years on LSN there are green dots all up and down my LSAT score. Time to wait for the mailman all week!

I just wanted to confirm--once a decision has been made the online status checker will go from status complete to decision rendered? I think that GMU wins for having one of the worst status checkers. It's like an easter egg hunt to find anything.

The status bar on mine actually went blank. There is about a paragraph at the top of the page that now says the decision has been rendered.
If you think GMU has the worst, you must not have applied to William and Mary.

Got my admit packet via USPS today. It says that scholarship info will be sent out in February or March.

If I get into the Leadville Trail 100 again this year, I may have to withdraw from GMU. The orientation is the day before Leadville.

+1. W&M's blank status checker is very frustrating.

I did apply to William and Mary! And it is just confusing. I had a status for a bit, but it vanished yesterday. Don't know what that means, but I guess I'll find out at some point.

I am accepted and my status checker is still blank. Not sure if that helps anyone.

Does anyone think that there will be another round of decisions before Christmas?

i hope so... on the decision dates graph it looks like a ton of decisions went out in the whole month of dec (there's a big plateau from the "dec 2" mark to the "dec/jan" mark), so it's possible

Fair assumption. Just skimmed back through the thread, looks like big batches of decisions went out Dec 1 and Dec 6. That would make my weekend (assuming i get in...)
