When did you apply?


I think he applied in January. I think there are two groups - a 12/1 set and an after 12/1 set. He's part of a different date bunch than the rest of us. I didn't go complete until 12/6.

*she

I applied Jan 16th, complete Jan 25th. Hopefully it isn't a huge wait; 8+ weeks would put me at past a deposit date at another school; so there goes $300 if I would get into Madison.


My bad.

Welcome to the Waiting Club! :D

Welcome to purgatory, vaguephoenix!

This must be the week, right? Any longer would be crazy

(I have been saying this for a month...)

Totally agree with you on this! I'm hoping to hear back soon. I'm debating between UIUC and UW also it would help me be more productive at work since I wouldn't feel the urge to check my iPhone multiple times a day! Hah

Current 1L here.

I realize that y'all are in waiting purgatory at the moment, but as things become more clear (and you will actually get decisions, I promise), I'll help answer any questions you might have.

For some people who asked about financial aid a page or two back: Wisconsin's financial aid offers typically come a little late. If I remember right from last year, there is a small wave of URM-focused fellowships (usually full-ride or half-ride) in late February, and the rest of the financial aid offers come around March.

Good luck!

Thanks for the help. Do you know what kind of numbers the Urms had who got fellowships? My numbers are alright by TLS standards and I applied to UW for a lot of reasons including aid packages. Hence my strong passion to go there.

Wisconsin is a long shot for me, but my status update changed to "Decision Made" today - just a heads up to those who are waiting. Mine had been in review since "12/1."

My status updated to decision made as well. According to the schools website, we should receive word by e-mail within 48 hours. Good Luck to all those who are waiting, hopefully we all get good news.

edit: I suppose we could be accepted via phone call as well.

Good luck to everyone that is getting updates today!

And I would imagine that they are all acceptances. A rejection on valentines day sounds kinda harsh!

Me too. I am shocked, I am above both medians and I am a URM. I suppose that it is because I am OOS. I guess I'll do a LOCI.

Same here im a urm male with numbers comparable to others who have been accepted. I'm OOS I hope they didn't wait list us or that.

Kind of a little bitter but it makes me feel like the diversity talk was BS

Can anyone share what the email looked like? Did the line say "Greetings from the University of WI" or something different?

It could also be yield protect, if it is, then it really sucks. I have already been WLed at UIUC even though others with lesser numbers were admitted.

Yea bro it seems like total bull. Did anybody have in bold a request to send a letter of continued interest? Also does anyone know how this wait list works. I'm pretty heated, and curious why it took them this long to say maybe?
