Those are my numbers and I'm sitting at CR2 since mid-January with no movement. Shows it's not cut-and-dry.

very underwhelmed by the timeline. Considering deposits are needed in about three weeks, If I don't hear back from BOTH admissions and their financial aid office on scholarships before the end of march Im going to withdraw my app.

I'm surprised as well, considering UCLA gave me WL. Would have hoped for at least WL at USC...

Dinged as anticipated. I think Berkeley has the best ding letter by far!

My admissions cycle is all set. All that's left is scholarship negotiations and commitment. How about the rest of you?

I want USC, but ND is giving me more $$$. We'll see. Visiting both schools soon.

I'm still stuck at complete. 1/27 complete date. I'm not even in review. Is this a problem? I'm AA male URM. Should I call?

I think they're just not at that point in their processing. I'm complete 2/5 and not a peep since. I would give it at least another week before we see any movement.

Same here. Just got dinged by USC today.
I called UW and talked to Dean Le. He told me that by the end of this week we should get a response. He also said the school is really tight on money :roll:

Berkely's ding letter does sound the best and most sympathetic. No other schools' ding letter invited me to consider transfer.

I think that's what he said.. I called early last week and he said the latest by the end of this week.

It was a really standard ding. I didn't really finish reading and just shredded it :mrgreen:

USC did invite to transfer but Berkeley's letter was most sympathetic like cokilx mentioned

I'm still CR2. 3.5 months and I'm not giving them the right for me to withdraw out of principle.

I wonder how many people withdraw based on how long their process takes. Deposit deadlines are due for me in about 2 weeks, and my application hasn't even been reviewed at USC.

I wonder how it influences the school overall. I know this admissions process with them has left a poor taste of the school in my mouth. Coupled with the drop in rank. All signs are pointing to no.

For those of you getting dings, are you receiving your letters via email or snail-mail?
