Hey all! Anyone other SRS's with weird things happening to them at MVP?

I got accepted to UVA (OOS), flat out rejected at Michigan, and waitlisted at Penn. 167/3.95. Anyone else who applied to all 3 of these schools care to grace us with an update?

In at UVA OOS RD, and put on hold at Michigan. I didn't write a "Why Michigan" (wrote a different supplemental essay) that might have something to do with it.

I got in at Michigan and Penn, and have been pending review/decision at UVA since 9/22. 167/3.89. I wrote supplemental essays for M and P, but not for V. My assumption is that they'll ding me in the relatively near future. But, then, that's been my assumption for over a month now.

I got in Penn, waiting on Michigan and UVa. I emailed for an update at UVa and was told that it's not quite decision time for me yet.

Yeah, I've heard stats around 74,000 for OOS including COL (Cost of Living) - freaked me out, too, but I guess the rest of the T14 schools hover around 65,000 or so, when everything is included.....in any case, it's an assload of $$

Hi all,

This forum gives me hope!
165/3.89

Accepted: GW, GULC PT, W&M, Vanderbilt, George Mason, Fordham
Waiting: Michigan, Penn, UVA, BU, American
Dream: UVA

Just emailed a LOCI yesterday - wrote Why UVA, visited...not sure what else I can do to increase my chances? OOS, non-URM. App complete and under review as of 10/31 and no movement since. Welcome to any thoughts anyone may have! Pretty positive now that UVA is where I want to go.

I mean, I'm hoping to take advantage of the LRAP program wherever I go (and the quality of said program may have some impact on my decision), but $74k seems a little too absurd. I don't know! Hopefully I will get into a few more schools, because at this point I might choose Georgetown for purely financial reasons, as odd as that seems.

GULC PT and Vandy are quite impressive snags with those numbers. Congrats on your cycle so far!

Nobody in this thread is any sort of splitter or reverse splitter.

Where did you get that from? Nothing wrong with having a club thread on TLS, just the pretense that the term "splitter", reverse or otherwise, is in any way applicable to the criteria laid out in the OP is a little silly. And I say that as someone who meets those criteria.

Excellent! Berkeley's one of my dream schools. Anything you'd recommend for someone who's still waiting to hear?

This should really be titled "It's good but I would have loved 170+" because I'm sure I'm not the only one who was constantly saying that after scores came out.

Anyway, just want to contribute. I am 168, 3.87 and I got in ED to GW. I read some negativity on here, people saying you needed 170+ to get it and it affected me. But apparently that is not so. It's great to see so many people with similar stats are getting into such impressive schools!

Ummm...patience, grasshopper? :wink: Just kidding - it's so hard to wait! If anything this has made me more antsy about other applications.
