Just called 4/28---reserve. The nice lady also told me it is not a waitlist, and more like a hold.

Did the status update today with a date of 04/28, or had you not checked since 04/28?

I'm trying to figure out if I should keep refreshing.

My status actually changed on 5/1. They update them shortly after the decision is made. I received the letter in the mail today.

Declined admission today-- I'm off to Northwestern. Best of luck! I hope one of you gets my spot!

Sorry to hear about Cornell, but congrats on NW!


With a bunch of reserves yesterday, and now you declined today, I wonder if we might see some acceptances tomorrow?

I do believe he meant that he declined their offer of admission today: he was, in fact, accepted to Cornell.

Haha-- it's fine...but please don't use the "r word". Speaking as someone who's worked with mentally handicapped kids, it's really offensive.

Btw, why does everybody think I'm a guy? My name's MusicNutMEGGIE and I have Rachel Maddow as my avatar. Weird... :-)

There's a poster named imisscollege who everybody assumed was a girl (I'm guessing because of the "miss").

Applied in January and wait-listed at nine schools..: UCLA, Northwestern, Cornell, GULC, Columbia, USC, Duke, Michigan, and Penn. Wondering what to do..

The picture of your avatar is so small that it is impossible to distinguish gender...I think almost everyone would, at first glance, automatically assume that it is a guy unless they were familiar with the picture.

Fair enough-- I didn't realize how tiny it was! Still, it's the "Meggie" part of my name that I thought would be the dead giveaway. Just thought it was funny.

Oooh so the reserve is a hold, sounds cool. I'll send in the shit today and see how it goes. Let's hope I get off. Although I love GW, an acceptance from Cornell would be quite sweet, quite sweet indeed. Don't phail me Cornellia!!!

LOL. What did they say?

FWIW, I don't think your e-mail was that bad...anyone with a sense of humor probably wouldn't take much offense to it.

It seems 4-6 weeks after completion is a good target.

I applied in mid-December, went complete March 17, and got admitted a week ago, if that helps you at all. Luck!

I was notified to be complete on Mar 18th. But today they sent me an email said some documents are missing and requested me to send it. Does that mean they haven't even looked at my files since Mar 18th? :|

Thanks! Hopefully it's on the low side of that, which would mean a decision next week... a guy can dream...
