Weird week for me as well. Some expected, some unexpected.

3.78/169 Nontraditional. Straight rejected at Penn. Straight rejected at Chicago, 1/9 update. "Held" e-mail at Michigan. Held at Harvard. ??? The "best" news I got was from Harvard. Just weird.

Congrats to all the admits... but holy shit, I'm shocked at the high numbers getting WLed. :( What a strange cycle. My condolences to all. I feel like I got really, really lucky this cycle looking all you high numbered people....

My only speculation is that people who submitted way early (sept/oct) had a much better chance than those who submitted after thanksgiving... no idea though. Sorry everyone :( You will all end up at great schools though!!

????? That is not right, you will be accepted somewhere though bro. You are a YP and if you write a LOCI I'm sure you will see some love.

No such luck.

They just didn't like something...

Sorry to everyone getting waitlisted/dinged. So many of you have awesome numbers. No clue as to Chi’s motives.

I got the email about the acceptance and it says "You must postmark your deposit and submit your response form on or before April 15, 2012" that is really early compared to other deposit dates, some schools ASW's are even later than that :?

First bad news of the cycle. Not gonna lie, i'm disappointed.


WLed at Chicago and held at Harvard today like you. You don't consider a hold bad news?


I'm below both medians at Harvard, so I was expecting to get rejected. A hold is more than I could ask for really.

I've also gotten into NYU and would pick that over Chicago anyway. And I had a UPenn acceptance today to numb the pain. :wink:

Yeah, definitely. And Need Access must be submitted by Feb. 15th? I don’t think the other schools have such an early deadline, and I’m pretty sure my parents won’t be able to get their portion done that early.

Really? Every school I've been accepted to has the first deposit that same timeframe between 4/1-4/15

I hope your PS and 250 were polished and that you sent an app to Yale. If so, enjoy New Haven.

I feel you there. I submitted on September 15th. I even started working on the app as soon as it opened, in August. I can't even believe this is happening. Thought I struck gold when I got my 179...used it as motivation to bump my GPA to 3.86. Turns out my score might be a curse, raising expectations to the point where I felt HYS was realistic. Now, I have no idea what to think.

Question: Does Chicago ever "hold"? I know U Mich doesn't. Maybe more people will get in off the waitlist this year if the # of apps stays low. Some solid numbers got WL'd.

I appreciate the humor, but I think I might resign myself to UVA, the way things are going. I feel bad even for saying that because UVA has been the only school to even offer me a scholarship so far.
