With your numbers and URM status, they may YP you.

I'll chime in since I had a phone interview as well. I was asked via email for my availability to talk to Dean Post, got her call later that afternoon, and was given the good news a couple days later. I assume I was asked to interview on account of my splitter stats.

1. Congrats!!
2. How long after you went UCR did you get the call? Was it only one UCR for you?
3. Was what she asked you about related to your grades?

so it seems like no RD waitlists/dings today, correct? Maybe they are all done with them for the week for ppl under review already and everyone waiting to hear back is an admit! Seems plausible!

Thanks for your vote of confidence!!! I REALLY want that to be true, but it scares me that someone else with my first UCR date updated today while a bunch of us were left behind. I'm going to be an optimist here and say that he's so solid that they were able to decide on him really quickly, but they're going to look over the rest of us first thing tomorrow morning just to make sure that everyone's on board with taking us! Let's go 12/14s!!!!!! :D

Dinged via email on 12/20. Not a surprise. Maybe I shouldn't have used so much profanity in my PS? Who knows?

yes and I would say with NYU under your belt, you shouldn't have to worry about Penn wanting you as well! (unless it's YP!)

Thanks very much! To be honest, I don't remember my UCR dates, though I know I had two. As for her questions, I was asked about how I saw myself getting involved in the community, to elaborate on a few thoughts from my personal statement, and to articulate the ways in which I have changed during my somewhat unusual academic career (dismal grades from a CC to graduating with honors from a top UG over a span of eight or so years).

Ha yeah, being in the NYU thread for that week as the initial decision letter craziness unfolded was quite a site. I was happy to get my purple envelope, though just a quick look at craigslist apartment listings in the village is enough to give second thoughts.

Also, this is completely unrelated, but mulch, is your avatar image broken/not loading? Am I the only one who sees it this way? Maybe it's just a side-effect of the slow decaying process of my computer (I'm getting a new one in 3 weeks !!!)



and i thought it was just MY computer, haha. I'll see what I can do to fix this situation, STAT.

that 5 year plan was very good. thank you..

wish i had a friend like yours.


how did you end up with a phone interview?


Penn is officially the only school I have not gone UCR at
:(
Maybe they know I love them a lot and will wait... not fair.


I'll chime in since I had a phone interview as well. I was asked via email for my availability to talk to Dean Post, got her call later that afternoon, and was given the good news a couple days later. I assume I was asked to interview on account of my splitter stats.



so i guess i am in a worse position than other held people since i had interview with Dean Post as well and she's the one who sent me the deferral letter...
meaning, she didn't like me..

:(

hope additional LOR and Five Year Plan alter her perception of me positively.

haha, thanks for the announcement (again!). yes, let's hear some good news - I'm sick of radio silence or pessimism that I'll be WLed bound (or even a rejection)
