Don't know how it took them that long to give you the call. Those numbers and URM look like auto-admit to me.

No LOCI. Just sat and waited patiently while I heard back from other schools.

Is the phone call for all admits? Or do most people get emails?

The waitlist FAQ states that it's best to send in LOCIs during May-August but has anyone already sent their LOCIs? I'm debating whether I should send them one now or after May. I got waitlisted end of January.

I don't remember my letter saying that. I doubt it matters much when you send.

I applied in early January, and I have heard nothing since (other than an email saying that my application was complete and under review)

Hey! Do you already know where you're going?
Since we have similar options I was wondering what you decided! :wink:

That's where I sent mine and received a response. Try Dean Schwartz if you don't hear back. They usually let you know that they received your email and will get back to you. They had a decision for me within a week (more like few days).

Did they increase your scholarship after their 60k offer vs. 120k from NU?
I was really rooting for you!

Awwww thanks! They did, and were really nice throughout the whole process. They didn't match, but I get in-state tuition and they closed the gap enough where I don't think it would have mattered... cept NU kind of stole my heart in the last few weeks...

Yes. But try Dean Schwartz (they decide as a committee, anyway, though I'm not sure who's actually on this committee) if you don't hear back or at least CC him.

Yeah, at this point we're 99% sure where we're going (SMU with $$$), but still have Gtown, Vandy, and Duke to hear from, as well as potential for money from others that could change the calculus. Mrs. BVest just wants to know already so we can start looking for a house and she can start looking for a job.

Indeed. Same here, but waiting on those last few decisions are keeping me from being able to make the decision final. Plus im international so I need to start applying for study permits and such lovely time consuiming things. I can't be riding waitlists into august no matter how much I'd like to :/
