Was looking at LSN yesterday. Almost as many people have already been let off the WL as last year. So maybe they're done with the WL?

Just got in. Email today completely out of the blue. No phone call.

Deciding between Chicago (where I went as an undergrad) and NYU

Think I might be out of the running. No email after they asked for grades

Haha, I was on WL, but when I withdrew I called them and told them to move you up one position on the WL and tell NU that they were poaching you from them.

:shock: HOLY MOTHER OF JESUS.
This is not an acceptance, but I was called from the Dean saying she wanted to include me in the next group for the committee to review to get off the waitlist. The opportunity ALONE is enough to make me sound like a giddy fangirl.

Stats in profile, and as MUCH as I loved NU's ASW and everyone I met and as much as Hyde Park sucks, Chicago is the ONLY school I would still at least consider going to sticker, even with my 30k NU scholarship. She was frank with me, saying that matching would be very difficult for them, but ANYTHING is welcome. I want to be in Chicago-for school and for career and Chicago has always been my dream school.

Anxiety to continue for the next week-when she said I would hopefully hear. I am at my internship-not doing internship work and thankfully, I don't have much because I'm useless now.
Must furiously write the best LOCI ever.

So they are still looking! *crosses fingers for Jam.* Even if I don't get in and even though we're both in at NU, I still want you to get in. :D You're as in love with Chicago as anybody.

And finally, if by some miracle it happens, NUers I'm still attending all your Thursday outings that I can from facebook lol.

Congrats foxy! Did you get the call this morning?

Interesting how Chi is just straight email-admitting people and calling others for interest

Yes, this morning. I think they are calling me instead of admitting right away because my gpa is 3.5 lolol.

Got the phone call. Was not expecting that at all... I have no clue what I'll do if I get off of this waitlist.

You have much happier things to focus on than a ~feeler call from Chicago!! Though considering the stats of others who were called... I don't understand why you weren't.

But obviously I did not hear anything. Doesn't seem anyone needs GPAs.
