When did you apply?
Applied in mid-November. I actually did visit the school in January for the SCALE presentation (I live within 25 miles). The school has a classy, upscale hotel lobby feel. Met some admissions people and chatted it up. They told me they usually reach a decision within 8-10 weeks. It took mine roughly 14 weeks. Probably would have benefitted from staying in touch but Im already writing the essays so......I'm staying positive. Just wanted to see where I fall on the spectrum of applicants.
Also, just wondering, being waitlisted basically eliminates my chances of receiving any significant aid/scholarships...correct?
