American University Class of 2016

Postby gitguy » Wed Nov 14, 2012 2:46 pm

Didn't see one yet so here we go. Love American's emphasis on public policy and D.C. locale, but not willing to pay sticker. Here's to some $$$$.

Looking at LSN, they don't seem to be very generous with shols which, considering that there are two higher ranked schools in DC plus UVA a couple of hours away, is quite strange.

Any idea if we'll hear back this week? Looking at the previous cycle, it appears decisions started coming in around the 30th.

no worries! in all honesty she goes "there is no time line and do not judge when they will come out from last years date because the timeline changes wildly every year", BUT according to LSN it really does not? .. she might just have to say that.

OCI isn't doing very well. And in DC, where there are two T-20 schools plus UVA in close proximity, American is getting shut out HARD. And they're still charging as much as those schools.
