Thanks! Appreciate the help haha. Although, U of M full price would be hard to justify. That would mean $113k larger debt than St. Thomas. That number is hard to swallow.

Yep, mine updated to 1/21 on Friday. Which pisses me off... If you're going to put me further into review on Friday and then waitlist me first thing Monday morning, why wait? I know they didn't review my app for 3 minutes Monday morning after going "IR" 5 different dates and then be like "oh, yep, now I got it. Waitlist."

Mine did too. Don't know why they couldn't do this Friday evening, when they were clearly ready to, so I could then go out, have a good weekend, and get over it.
Still saddened by this turn of events.
Happy Monday everyone.

this is crap. LSP had me at strong consider, and I've gotten into other similarly ranked schools, so I know there's not a huge fatal flaw on my application or anything. I'm very unhappy :(

Same.

Funny because I was only considering attending if they offered me a super generous scholly.

whatever...you got into much better schools anyway :mrgreen:


Yah, not really too bummed. 8)

I will be withdrawing so that those on the waitlist who truly would like to attend UMN will have a better chance of being pulled. Best of luck to everyone still waiting in the wings.

Waitlisted. I'm hoping YP and not something really messed about my app. I wrote a UMN-specific PS too. Shit.

WL this morning. Every day that goes by makes me love Michigan more. Thank you, Michigan, for being one of the only schools who want me.

No, you are not. You have a better shot than (it seems) any of those with 170+ have a higher chance of waitlist than 167-169.

Look at this. How bizarre.... It's like 167-169 is the golden number. Below and above that range both have significantly higher waitlists at all GPAs.

Yield Protection... Basically people who get WLed/Rejected because a school knows they'll probably go somewhere better and doesn't want them to lower their yield percentage.

TITCR. Which sucks for people who put together a Why Minn essay or PS. Clearly they want to go there, or they would have just sent their standard PS.
