Oh god. My median GPA gave me a little hope but after seeing this, I will proceed to brace myself.

Sorry about Cornell but I'm almost certain you'll get into even better schools :D



Legit just got into Duke 2 hours after the Cornell rejection...wtf Cornell

Check out that graph, wow that is rough.


Someone with a 171 and 3.91 was rejected. :shock:


Looks like that person carried over data from the last cycle, with the rejection coming from last year.

Damn, sorry to hear about the dings :( . I'm surprised, it seems like a lot of really solid applicants getting dinged/WL'd.

I've got the same dates as you, no interview. Hopefully this means there is no cause to worry for the two of us and that it's typical with the holiday break.


Same except I'm at 12/12, the no interview is making me nervous but glad to hear I'm not the only one

For everyone who got WL/dinged today, when did you go ready for review? And did you interview at all?

Sorry to everyone in that boat, but I'm glad you all have some great options already!

Anyone know how long after you submit your scholarship application/documents you can expect a response?

Wait listed today, but in at Duke and Michigan (and 6 others). Already in love with those two so withdrew my application. My first non-acceptance, but I am sure not the last my reach schools are all pending.

Those were my exact dates and I had no interview as well, put on reserve today. Trying to decide whether it's worth it to stay on the reserve list.

I probably would have if I had been put on reserve, but not because I would go there? I'm bad at closing doors though. Honestly a small part of me is glad that Cornell freed me from the obligation to throw together an unenthusiastic LOCI
