Yeah, i'm curious how you "get off" the waitlist, and how many people generally get admitted from the waitlist. I thought it was really strange that I got waitlisted via Early Decision. People don't usually get waitlisted in mid-January...[/quote]

Have you all been contacted yet? I also got waitlisted in the beginning of feb about 2 weeks after I applied. 163/3.81 (3.92)[/quote][/quote]

I also applied ED and was wait-listed early in January. (167/3.2) GW is still my top choice but I've been offered $$ at UMinn and really can't afford to forfeit the deposit if admitted after their deadline. So...

1- Has anyone else on the waitlist heard anything about when they may be pulling people off?

2- Anyone have any information on the size of the waitlist or chances of getting off?

3- Are those admitted off the waitlist still considered for scholarships?

Thanks![/quote]

1. After the deposit deadline.
2. They don't know until after the deposit deadline.
3. Not sure

I'm pretty sure that's need-based aid. Did you submit your FAFSA?


Huh. I did submit a FAFSA--I just thought no way would I qualify for need-based aid. My husband and I both have professional jobs--his as a govt attorney.

Received need aid and then merit. Because I received merit aid, my net scholarship only increased a couple thousand.

Does GW negotiate at all? Or is the absolute max 75000?

Sorry to those on the WL... I have nothing to withdraw.

Rejected today; 166 (171 expired) with a low GPA but that was a long time ago (4.0 in masters program).
