Thanks for sharing your stats. Did they really call after hours?

I'm so pissed that you haven't gotten in yet.


Thanks, Jam, but my stats really do make me a long shot. I'm very happy to go to Mich, but I just want to know!

I may have. I got a Dean's Scholarship which is technically a combination of need and merit, but I'm not sure whether it was completely one, completely the other, or a combination. I feel like it was too much to have been completely need-based (though I am a bit poor according to NeedAccess)

Hey Jam, just to clear this up, the Dean's Scholarship is all merit. I got one without submitting any financials.

The thing is, we have so many students that the odds that one person is going to affect them are really low. I feel like your commitment should be worth something. Maybe I'm being sentimental, but I feel like you're going to put in the work and create a better, more interesting class than some 172/3.2 who goes b/c his other offer is a small scholly at GULC

Longtime lurker first time poster, figured I owed a post after checking this forum so much in the past couple weeks.

Got a phone call today and they offered me admission after getting a call gauging interest on Friday. Stats are 175/3.1ish so there's hope for anyone with low GPAs out there still waiting. Good luck to everyone!

Wow, stats twin, congrats on the acceptance! I didn't think they'd go for the lower GPA, but I guess there's always hope. DId you submit a few LOCIs?

Have you been accepted anywhere in the CCN? I'm SHOCKED that NYU hasn't pounced on that 180, especially consider the GPAs that they're reaching for.

Nope. I suck at this game, apparently.

No just told them I wanted to stay on the waitlist (didn't expect to get in either was happy with NU before this). Before last Friday I had heard nothing for months so I thought this was a dead end.

Lol, that's pretty much exactly the position I'm in, minus the acceptance. I've sent in 2 LOCIs at this point, though. I'm juiced for NU, wasn't really holding out much hope for NYU. I think that your post may have rekindled some of that lost hope, though. Did you have any particularly unusual/beneficial softs?

Just got the interest calllllllll (I think?)... There was something said about being in the pool of candidates that will be drawn from should the need arise. Is that what previous rounds of people were told as well?

Oh man, I really hope this isn't just a tease!

ours was a little more of a "we're probably about to accept you" but this still sounds really solid.

Congrats! I know someone else who got the call today too.

I keep telling myself that I'll give up if I'm not in the next round of calls. But it's not working.
