Wow, seems a bit obvious though...I mean, if someone was in the armed forces i think that would come up somewhere along the line. Petty of them in my opinion and Im sure it doesnt affect your chance


They probably just have a policy to follow up on stuff like that so people couldn't get away with leaving out information (especially character and fitness stuff) and then attributing it to oversight.


I think that is a good sign, i.e. they care enough to contact you. They asked me about what I had been doing since the Peace Corps, since I didn't list anything after that on my resume. Fortunately, I had found work a couple of weeks in advance. One week later from that question I was in.


I'm certainly happy that they didn't flat out reject me and that they cared enough to make sure my application was complete for consideration. But the fact that missing a click of a mouse (which I don't know how I could've missed) would have such a possibly dramatic impact on their assessment of me is worrisome. Oh well, with so much that has plagued my application process, I guess this is to be expected. =\

For Fordham I didn't fill out or click the box that said were you ever convicted of a felony or charged with anything etc. They emailed me about it. It didn't affect me at all. In fact I got a 75k scholarship which is pretty generous considering my numbers.

Woooo. Too bad Fordham hasn't even began their review of me yet. But I am hoping that I am still competitive despite my little oversight. *fingers crossed*

Yeah, BU can be unpredictable with their timing of $$$ awards from what I've heard. I scanned and emailed them my GW offer, basically asking them to match/come close to the offer. Did this two weeks ago, so far nothing, but worth a shot I guess. If I hear nothing by the end of the month, I'll contact them again, hopefully with another similar offer elsewhere to convince them. Doesn't hurt to try.

BC BU Fordham... someone has to pick me up right?? then i'll start worrying about money

Edit for substantive questoin: This total lack of a status checker saddens me. Ive gotten an application complete and ready for review email. Do they also send out an email once it is under review, or is the next contact i am likely to have going to be a decision mailing?? (notice assumed reject/waitlist)

yup yup, checked your LSN. Quite similar indeed! I'm also a gemini (or at least i was a few months ago). I like long walks on the beach. Deep conversation, and am a constant random refference machine.

In all seriousness though, at least you got into one of them! Is Fordham your number one at this point? Or is it wake with the monies? and why the withdrawl from GW? so many questions!

Unrelated: your sign didnt change...it's only different for people born after the sign changes.

Duly Noted. I feel much better about myself now. Now I can avoid that mid life crisis of identity!

Perhaps since you have had the joy of being accepted you can answer the question I had posed a while back

I did not hear a single peep from them from "your application is complete" on 12/1 until I got a phone call from a 617 number telling me I was in! I tried to submit a request for status check but they never got back to me. I don't know if it was related or not (probably not), but less than a week from when I requested the status check via email, they called me.

GOOD LUCK!

Ditto! I was complete in early Dec and I got the call at the end of Jan. I didn't request a status update, so I heard nothing in between! Good luck to you!

I had pretty much already accepted I will be going to WUSTL or UIUC, so no big deal. Can't believe the entire state shut me down though..

I probably won't reply to the e-mail to stay on it. Would rather take the $ at Emory if I'm gonna go eastward. Seriously tho, I have yet to receive a rejection but have been waitlisted by 5 schools haha

Sorry for the WL massacre, guys! Let's hope there are phone calls later on today to alleviate some of these Monday blues. :(

How are you guys finding out about the waitlist? Email I presume?
