Mine reverted to the same (after being accepted w/ $$). Pretty sure the offer's revoked - tough break

Wait, are you saying they admitted someone and then took back the offer this early in the process?

Wow...what would be the reason for this?

I applied on Friday around 4pm. I hope to go complete here in the near future...


Don't worry guys, this happened to me last week and I called the admissions office (conceding to them that the stress of the process was making me paranoid). They said that they sometimes turn the mailings heading off on the status checkers so people don't know they're in "prematurely" (whatever that means). Check back in a day or two, and it will probably be back up again.

Haha, I definitely want to hear from some other schools though ;/. I will be UR for forever. Hopefully Fordham is next. I've given up on Georgetown and Berkeley. UR for like 3 weeks.

Thanks for the response. I'm hoping for a miracle with G'Town. Congrats on that acceptance.

I was complete since 11/8 and nothing so far. My opinion is that they accept all the auto admits quickly. THey do state that it's modified rolling admissions and then most will hear back in March. I think they accept many, many auto admits (enough to make up the entire 1L class). Then they wait to see who accepts, withdraws, etc. Once they see how many openings are left, they pick from the rest of the pool, and then most end up with a WL or denial in March.
This is just my opinion from what I see is happening. I am not seeing any other school work this way.
Anyone agree/disagree?

I agree to some point but according to LSN there has been some ppl with sub 165s and sub 3.7s who have gained acceptance -- I wouldn't consider a 160/3.7 an autoadmit

how many peoples' status checkers say initial review complete from an early date, and congratulations admitted under updates on the side?

i hope i'm not the only one.

I think your guess makes some sense, I was expecting to hear back quickly coz I thought my numbers were good for them though. (172, 3.7+)

It still takes time. I'm 172, 3.7, and I went complete 11/12. My status checker was blank until 12/2. Be patient.
