Nothing


The silence is deafening.


Nothing here. I also received the email asking to respond by Friday.

I called and asked if there has been any movement. They said within 2-3 weeks but that is just a generic answer. I didn't give my name just asked for an update on the waitlist process. I don't think they would have us wait that long especially since the email said "as early as next week" :(

Edit: I also didn't mention that I received that email

Did you ask about the waitlist generally or specifically those who got the selective waitlist e-mails?

How long did it take in previous years? Decision from the date the email was sent

Historically it was within a day or two after the feeler email. They appear to be moving slightly slower...

No updates in LSN regarding people off waitlist. Although 3 withdrawn updates were made today. I received my waitlist decision at 5:06 PM so there is still hope for today :shock:

Oh okay if you asked about generally that makes sense because I don't think they go into their second wave until the people they accept first put in their seat deposits. But for people who got the email asking for a response, past years they got an acceptance only 1-2 days later!

What do you guys think our odds are (selective email) of getting "decent" scholarship money might be?

People have been offered money in previous years when taken off in the first wave. Which is what we *should* be. Hard to tell for certain though. Do you plan on trying to negotiate for more?

Last year the people on lsn offered money off the waitlist got a lot less than people with the same stats outright accepted. :(

Some is better than none! Definitely hope they offer us $$ though! Would make it very easy to deposit.

Depends on how much I guess. I'm likely going to another school anyways thats wayyyy cheaper and now thanks to new rankings, ranked higher, but we'll see...still keeping options open!

I imagine this is Washington & Lee. They offered me more than GW and have a much lower cost of attendance, so I went to their admitted students weekend. The school is beautiful and the environment was great. The only thing I would make note of is that Lexington is a very very small town and pretty much the opposite of the DC experience.

Anybody who got the e-mail last week that asked for a reply thinking about calling admissions and asking what the deal is?

I'm considering it. I may wait until tomorrow though. I don't want to come off as pushy, but I really want to know what's happening.
