Waiting

Postby frijoles99 » Fri Mar 04, 2011 2:56 am

I applied to 23 schools. Yes I know this seems like a lot, but I had a fee waiver and it expired this year. Anyway I got 9 answers early February. 3 acceptances, 2 waitlists 2 rejections 2 "holds". It was all purely within a week early February. Since then it has been nearly 5 weeks without any significant answers. What does it mean when so many schools can't give me answers? I would expect my answers to all come in about the same time like a bell shaped curve. Any ideas people?

A bell shaped curve? Really?

The decisions are going to come when they come. Most of the time it's dependent upon when you applied and you can figure out when they'll come based on this by looking at past waiting threads for each school. Schools are on their own schedules, some of them are fast and some of them are slow. There's no way you're going to get all of your decisions at the same time having applied to that many schools.

First thanks for the youtube video I love sum 41. Secondly, of course I know schools go at different paces, but what I am commenting on is that my application timeline is much longer than people I know with similar scores and who sent it in at about the same time. I believe my applications are taking abnormally long based on other's answers.
