I'm a 3.3/172. A bad first year as a pre-med major dipped my GPA considerably, but I have had a strong upward trend in grades and hold close to a 3.7 in both of my current majors (journalism/polisci). Good LORs, good softs.
For NU: I've written two letters of continued interest (just sent in a 3rd after receiving waitlist notification). Wrote one of their supplemental essays. Had an additional LOR sent in. FLEW OUT TO CHICAGO for a hold interview.
What are my chances of getting off any of these damn waitlists?
Right now, I am waitlisted at:
-University of Michigan
On reserve at:
I haven't heard a peep from USC since I submitted my application.
Do you have WE? NU is tough with your numbers without WE. I'm confident you'll get off at least one waitlist. A couple 1Ls at NU didn't get into any schools until pretty late in the game. What about Penn, UVa or GULC?
What does WE stand for? Sorry, kind of a TLS noob, lol. Rejected at Penn, UVa, AND GULC. $84k scholarship from Wash U, which is what I will take if I don't get in anywhere else, but I'd really like to get into one of these places.
Thought I had a decent shot with NU what with interviewing and all the opportunities they give you for essays, etc., but getting moved to the waitlist from hold is just sad. I had written addendums explaining the low GPA and talked about it in my interview too.
