i just got into HLS today off the waitlist, and will be jumping ship from chicago to go there. i had accepted a seat with a $90,000 scholarship, so hoping that seat (and money) goes to good use for one of you! best of luck everyone!


yesssss, yessss, my pretties.... keep withdrawing and maybe they'll work their way to the very bottom of the list and be forced to pick me up. :twisted: :twisted:


Congrats on HLS!!!

lol at this "T10" distinction. UVA is objectively no different from the rest of the lower T14. Just take your T14 acceptance and run.

ETA: Glanced at your LSN ... are you turning down T14 for Vandy? Did Vandy give you money? What are you doing dude?

Yes Vandy gave me money. I really didn't feel like going to Cornell would be that much better than Vandy, and I really got a great vibe from the people in Nashville. I would jump ship in a heartbeat for UVA or UofC though. Just need them to wade through the high number applicants so they can take me off the waitlist!

Disagree, unless you have unique career goals and/or got substantial $, but this might make sense for you. Anyway, good luck. Send in LOCIs!!

Congrats to everyone who withdrew on your terrific options and my thanks for freeing up scholarship money.
I will now be attending a school that I probably didn't deserve to get into with $ to boot and I couldn't be more excited or thankful!

Looking at your LSN and assuming you have an affinity for UChi given your original ED it looks like this is really your best option unless you have already poured a bunch of money into logistical stuff for GULC. Hope to see you here in the fall :D

I'd agree. I may be biased, but I think uchicago is easily worth 30k more than GULC.

I agree, which is why I am unsure. GULC is reconsidering my scholarship offer, but I can't justify going unless they increase it substantially and I am not sure how much that increase will be/if they will actually increase it at all. Phone call with the Dean on Monday, hopefully good news comes of it.

My Chicago affinity has largely faded, though...... lol at my ED app. I really, really don't want to move anywhere but DC or NYC next year. At least I have until Friday to decide...

Got a job offer on a presidential campaign, will not be allowed to defer & will be withdrawing.

Thanks anyway, Chicago.
