Got approved for a $28k limit right before I went on vacation to Ireland last year...it was all I could do not to just stay there and max out the card and make a new life for myself.

I could make $28k stretch long enough to find a job.


That's my plan if I know I'm gonna be unemployed for a long stretch - utilize a good credit score to get a card with no APR for the first year or something introductory offer and just use that for the duration of it without digging into savings too much.

Part of me wants to quit SOOOOO bad and just ride my credit limit and 0% APR to the fall. But another part of me knows I will probably need some of that credit in school

I got 9% APR on this one with a Federal Credit Union. My income is totally not high enough for a $28k limit lmao

None, I've been surprising lucky with acceptances from 4-13. Radio silence from H and S indicates future WLs/rejections, however :oops:

Zero. I got waitlisted at GULC but withdrew pretty quickly. I also plan to withdraw from any other waitlists I end up on. I have a few good choices and want to give other people a (very very slightly) better shot if they're depending on a waitlist admission.

I strongly encourage other folks with good options to do the same.

I'm going to withdraw from any school that I wouldn't consider going to over UVA or Cornell, but I'll remain on the other for a month or so to see if anything happens.

I don't really think taking your name off the waitlist helps other people.. If they decided they had a spot and took you off the waitlist but you declined, the spot would just go to someone else. You might be slowing things done a bit, but the numbers still look the same

Pretty sure that's not how it works. If there are less names on the waitlist, then when they go to pick people, you have a better chance of getting accepted.

I think it would rarely help. When schools go to the WL they are looking for specific needs, so its more of whether or not you fit the need, not whether there are 400 versus 500 people on the WL.

Right, but if there is multiple people on the waitlist with very similar stats as you, and they're not planning on attending if accepted, then they could be keeping you from getting that offer. 400 versus 500, means there's a hundred less people you need to worry about fitting the school's needs better than you. Idk, just my theory, I could be wrong.
