Just got my Notre Dame acceptance packet in the mail!!!! I really can't believe it. I wrote a why ND essay, but did not think my numbers were good enough. Also thought my late LOR would keep me from being EA but I guess not. Well now have tough decision to make!

In! Scholarship was a little bit disappointing (8K a year) but its still great to have the acceptance. I was EA, literally sent out my app on November 1, the last day you could submit EA.

166; 3.73- Regular white guy currently in undergrad. I did write a Why ND essay, which I thought was pretty good and relevant given my career goals.

Why did you apply to the quasi-binding EA if you didn't really want to go there?

i knew i'd have a decision from my top schools (texas and penn) by late jan, so i'd be able to reply to ND in time. if i got rejected from texas, ND was my other safety.

Same here. Im 168/3.05. Although I wrote a Why Notre Dame essay, and my personal statement delved heavily into ethics.

For what its worth my numbers are slightly lower than yours so I'd say you still have a good chance. I think they really do put a lot of emphasis on the Why Notre Dame essay as almost everyone accepted with lower numbers seems to have written one.
