Yes it's good news. Wouldn't it be kind of funny if they called people to tell them that they were rejected though?

"Your application was so bad, we had to call you personally and say 'You Suck.' Good bye."

That is a terrible sense of humor right there.


:wink:

Where you headed as of right now JXander? Emory?

Yep! I am mainly holding out for UVA and TX at this point. I'm hoping they'll need to pull in some URMs soon... :?

haha yeah it was good news. although the first minute of him talking gave me the impression they were just calling a bunch of WLers to feel out where people stood. reverse splitter for those who are keeping track. 164/3.93

If I visited a week and a half ago and was told to call back on Thursday for more info after a brief interview/Q&A thing to no answer and left a message, should I call back or just wait it out? I know it's an odd question but :/

I would probably wait and if you don't hear back from them on Monday, call again on Tuesday!

Argh, yeah. I just don't know if being asked to call was a 'Yeah we'll give you general information' or 'we'll give you happy news' invitation :/ Been breaking it down and I just figure that if they wanted me, they would have sent me an email by now :/

How long does a LOCI need to be? Could I just send a quick email that says "Hey, btdubs, I'd deposit ASAP if you let me in"?

Also be sure to mention that UVA is the perfect fit for you and list a few reasons why. this along with the "deposit asap" idea are the two things they seem to look for most out of waitlist candidates. as far as length, just as long as they can tell you're sincere I'm sure that doesn't matter. Just don't write a novel or they may see that as overboard or something!

Aloha all, I finally decided to stop lurking and register. Is anyone else dying to call the admissions number and figure out if they are done for the day?

EDIT: I called, and got a message. office hours are 8:00-5:30. I guess the email will come soon unless they decide to prolong our misery over the weekend...

"At this time, we are continuing to review our wait list. We expect to be able to make some offers of admission to wait-listed candidates by the end of next week. If we are able to offer you admission, we will contact you by phone and/or email, and will send a formal acceptance package in the mail.

If we are not able to offer you admission by the end of next week, you will receive another update from me next Friday."

Anyone heard anything? :?

Got that email last Friday after visiting the school. Was hoping to hear something. Especially since Dean Richard said she would definitely get back to me by Friday (today). Haven't heard anything and don't know what to think. Wish I could just know rather than holding out false hope.

Just withdrew today. Tough, tough decision.

I was all set to go to UVA, but in the end I had to withdraw after receiving my NYU offer a few days ago. Good luck to everyone still waiting, and btw, there is now $90,000 back in the pool, which will hopefully go to someone here :-)

UVA waitlist update email just came in. It wasn't really encouraging. It did say they anticipate to send out more offers, but it didn't suggest they were interested in me :(. So sad.

Just got the WL update email. Hopefully they will still be showing some R splitter love when the next wave hits next week.

Also, those who have beem admitted should really update the spreadsheet for we neurotic waiters. :) Thanks!
