Hmmm that looks good but it's BARELY below median. I have been looking at this board all day alternating between hope and disappointment....Hopefully tomorrow we'll know some definite answers.

With numbers that close to the median...it doesn't seem like all of these would be rejects. At the very least, I'd expect most of these people to be waitlisted, right? So, it really seems like this could be a mixed batch (if that's even possible) or accepts.

This is driving me nuts! I can't do my schoolwork...I just keep refreshing this thread. :oops:

if they already have enough people that are waitlisted with similar stats, they might not need any more so it can easily be all rejections. and i highly doubt its a mixed batch since none were mixed so far but you never know....

I know. Better to expect the worst I guess. I wonder if the decision letters are all still small, regardless of the decision....

Hate to bring the numbers down but DF 4/27 with 164/3.6

Decent softs I think (got on the Vandy WL + Faculty Review @ Boalt), but I don't think I'm a URM for USC (Asian)

you're still at median for GPA, and that WL + Faculty review means you should have decent softs like you stated. and yea im asian and there is no chance we're URM.

167/3.8 still IR as of mid-February. Do you all think they just lost my application? Should I just keep waiting? I keep checking my application and no obvious red flags.

I think you and I are in the same boat. My guess is (or at least my hope) it's some kind of "hold" status. I would be very surprised if we don't hear back by Friday or Monday at the latest, and I tend to believe it will be positive (depending on how many actually deposit vs. how many withdraw)... then again, with the way this cycle has gone, who can really say for sure?

hmm you can call and ask if you're really curious, but i doubt they lost it.

the question is why did we go DF without people with your stats. your stats should make you an auto-admit. you and jman77.

ok i think i have now convinced myself that this is a rejection. i shall stop checking this thread so often. :cry:

I think Ryou and I are kind of at the same place in our cycle - we both got WL at Vandy. I kinda wouldn't be surprised if we both got WLed at USC but it seems like DF means its either reject/accept, so I have NO idea.

are you an URM? you might regret saying that if you're accepted, but we probably won't be so all the power to you.

I was Complete from 10/22 until In review 4/22 - then DF 4/27. I highly doubt that they were so impressed with my 165 and 3.3 that they slapped me with an acceptance five days after I went into review. It's really not that uncommon for a school to use homogeneous batches during the early part of the cycle only to start sending mixed batches later.

I wouldn't go even if it was an acceptance. I'm mostly interested now because I was curious as to how long this thing would drag along.

yeah, this must be a mixed accept/reject batch because some of you don't appear to have the numbers for any better than wl. hate to be a wet blanket! probably mixed because it's so close to the deposit date. fyi i found out from an accepted students web access email and i had decent softs, but i got in for my lsat no doubt. gl everybody who is still waiting!

So those who didn't receive an email aren't accepted :? Don't know why they wouldn't send that email all at once.

he never told us whether or not he's sure he's in DF 4/27. he stated 4/27 but i think he's mistaken as the 4/26 got emails today.
