Originally had Mich as a serious contender but I personally have been pretty frustrated with their admissions process and will be withdrawing. Best of luck
to everyone else.
They let you sit in on their committee and witness the "process" ??
Ha no. I understand that top schools get thousands of applicants and are quite busy, but I gotta question how someone like Tiago can be complete for over half a year (!) and then get waitlisted. I realize that schools don't owe us a whole lot during this process, but I think an answer within 6 months is fairly reasonable.
I am admittedly bitter about getting WL'd. Most applicants with my numbers were getting between 18-22K/year in scholarship money, so I was pretty surprised. I would like to know what red flag they saw in my application that Penn, UVA, and Duke didn't have a problem with, but I obviously won't find that out.
Still have tremendous respect for Dean Z and her staff and am certainly not questioning their decision. Going to withdraw and go in another direction, but still plan to bleed maize and blue next football season
