Does anybody know when the first deposit is due in Minnesota? I'm still UR since February, I'm kinda thinking I'll find out after they see who is serious about attending and what they class looks like before making the rest of the decision. It's my speculations only though...

Well it's official. Barring a miraculous admittance off the waitlist from BU or Cornell (reserve), I will be in Minneapolis this fall.

UofMinn definitely takes its time... I've been UR for approximately 6 weeks. I guess they said it would be 8-12 though, so I should be coming down the home stretch

I intruded into the admissions office this morning. I told the lady at the front desk the same truth about myself, and she replied:"well, sometimes it even takes as long as 12 weeks..." So I realized that I was probably at half way in the process. Her suggestion? "stay tight and wait..."

In less than 5 minutes, I was sent out of the office. what a cold attitude! Now, I'm pondering whether it's worth waiting...

I've been UR since 12/8. Has ANYONE been waiting this long? I know that I'm not exactly an auto-admit and I sit at the cusp between admit and rejection, but I cannot believe it. My UR date updated on 1/26 and as of now that's where I still sit.

Oh well, perhaps today is the day. I've gotta get a decision soon, right?

Cold attitude? How else are they supposed to respond to an applicant barging into the admissions office, demanding answers that they can't provide? Howabout showing some self-control? I've been under review since 1/7, and I haven't contacted the office once. Why? Because they clearly tell you that decisions can take from eight to twelve weeks. When the twelfth week is up, then I might give them a call.

Wow, that's even worse than me. I've been in review since 12/29, but I had a couple of date changes earlier this month. Still no decision, though. UMN is kind of a dark horse for me so I'm not getting too antsy about it.

yea... you forgot to tell the cold fact (sadly found in one of your previous posts) that you are eying on the schools in NYC. so why again check this school, uh? I think everybody still waiting to get in to UMN deserves a little bit vent of their anxiety and maybe a bit ranting. After all, we are applicants who cared - not counting clocking ticking towards the 12th week.
So stop your hypocritical preaching.
And I'd stop here, per your request of self-control.

You sadly found one of my previous posts? I'm not sad, are you? I'm applying to schools in NYC, I'm also applying to schools in the midwest. I check this thread because Minnesota is one of my top choices. I presume that is the same reason you are checking this thread. Sorry to rain on your super-sleuth parade.

I can understand your venting, I just thought you sounded a little entitled in blaming the admissions office. Especially considering I've been waiting nearly twice as long as you have, as have others on the thread. I mean, seriously, what did you expect them to do while you were in the office? Entertain you while you wait for their decision? Of course they sent you out, they have work to do.

Lol I figured I've been under review longer than just about anybody, but now, after reviewing this thread, I'm feeling embarrassed, having only gone under review on 2/16. The funny thing is, the only other T30 school to which I applied is Alabama, and it's also (in)famous for long review periods.

I'm just glad I've gotten into a few other schools, or this wait would give me a nervous breakdown haha.

ITT we learn that it's hypocritical to apply to multiple schools in different regions, and that UMN applicants are entitled to show up @ the admissions office to inquire about their application status, get foot massages, and sample fine wines.

Well I just got waitlisted. That's what it says on my status checker, not "decision e-mail sent", so I'm guessing you're either in or out?

More likely the latter in that case. I already decided I won't be riding out any waitlists, so it's just as well. Anxiously watching the tab to my left...

Went complete 12/29. And it's a rejection. Never pleasant to hear, but every option off the table makes things easier at this stage.

Waitlisted today, probably going to withdraw from the waitlist.


Gotta say there is more complaining about waiting in this thread than any other I've browsed.....and I've seen people waiting for a lot longer than 12 weeks for decisions from other schools. If you're a marginal candidate, unfortunately it takes awhile.

You think this is bad...go check out the WUSTL thread. There are some real neurotics in there!
