Congrats! When did you apply? Mine went complete on 10/31 and I am so anxious! I just want an acceptance already!


Went compete on 10/3. Best of luck!

"Please be aware that only a small number of early applicants have had their applications held, and a number of those applicants in past years have subsequently been admitted."
WTH does this really mean?
Is this substantively different from getting waitlisted?
How many people does this happen to each cycle?
Does anyone have a breakdown of how many deferrals actually turn into admits?

Finally, is there anything I can do to help my case? I was considering E-mailing them and letting them know I would now like to be considered for both the full- and part-time programs (I originally just indicated full-time).
Might this bump me into part-time admit territory, or will this just look like bad judgment and end up hurting?

Any thoughts are appreciated in this sticky, frustrating matter.


What are your numbers?


Sitting at 170/3.50.
Thanks peeps for the encouraging words.


I'm surprised you were deferred, but your chances should be good with those numbers. It's probably just a matter of time.

Thanks! Postmarked on 11/2. From what I remember, after my app went complete, it was updated twice. I could be wrong about that because I haven't been checking on any of them very frequently.

Thanks!

Sent 9/24, complete 9/27, and the only dates I can remember are 10/23 and 11/2, though I think there was one update before then.

In! My first T14 acceptance :D

FYI: sent 10/5, complete dates of 10/9, 10/17, 10/24, and 11/2. Letter dated 11/1.

Congrats to all who are already accepted. Best of luck to those still waiting.

Sorry to hear that, bro. Like hunter said, the deferral is better than a waitlist. After all, it should mean that they're still considering your app. Stay positive and good luck for the rest of your cycle.

anybody apply/accepted to the part-time program?
and, do you think it would be the same amount of time to receive a decision?

Add one more to the accepted pool!

After a stressful day of projects, this was pleasant surprise. I especially appreciated the handwritten note.

For those keeping track, RD, Submitted 10/15, Complete 10/15 (I don't think that's quite right, but that's what my LSN says), never bothered checking the status checker, got a letter postmarked 11/2 today. No idea if my recommenders received thank-you emails. Looking forward to visiting! It'll be my first time in D.C.

Also, most of you know this already, but for those who don't, the letter came in a small, thin envelope. Scared the hell out of me when I saw it.

Congrats! Any envelope coming this early has got to be good news, right?

So today I received an email inviting me to a group interview next Tuesday. I want to go as a way to show my interest but I wish they had said something sooner! I will have to fly (which will cost around 300 and I am super low on cash because of apps) and I have a job.

If it were an individual interview there would be no question but it is a group one for all Returned Peace Corps volunteers.

What do you guys think?

Don't they know where you live???

IDK man, that seems like a little bit much just to show your interest.

Just got an email to schedule an interview. Application complete 10/31. 3.17, 169.

Anything in particular I should know about the interview, from those who had to do one?

Also, congrats to everyone who's already been accepted!

Actually I looked at it wrong, it is for Monday.

I have decided to go but it will be cheaper to drive. At the same time, I can do a campus visit and maybe stop in at UV or W&M on my way back so I can get more in for the trip.

My numbers are good but I am not a lock so I am hoping every little bit will count :)
