Wow, that does not bode well for me. I have almost the exact same numbers.

I got in RD with roughly those numbers. Don't give up hope.

Waitlisted via letter today.

I was expecting a ding, so I'm not displeased at all.

Having a hard time keeping up my excitement about my admission/scholarship. Everything I read about South Bend makes it seem like a pretty crappy place to live. Crime rates way higher than the national average, dead social scene, etc.

Someone convince me otherwise!

I go here for undergrad, and I love it. I live off campus as well, and while some parts of South Bend aren't the greatest (I mean, nobody has ever claimed it was a major city), there is certainly enough to keep people entertained around here. I'm not sure what you're looking for in a college town...sure it doesn't have the greatest 'culture,' but how much time do you have to take advantage of that in LS anyway? We have every chain restaurant you could ever want, tons of bars, some other cheap entertainment, and the College Football Hall of Fame (well, at least until October haha). Crime rates are pretty high, but I've never experienced anything threatening around campus...there are certain places you don't want to live (stay away from anything too far south and west of campus, those are the worst areas), but overall it's just like any other small/mid sized midwestern city. Weather sucks, but compared to other places in the midwest you might be considering this isn't really a concern. Yea, don't let South Bend deter you from coming to ND at all.

I called their admissions office Friday before they closed, and they guaranteed me a decision in hand within ten days. So that bodes well for decisions happening this week.

that's funny...when I called Thursday their only explanation was "some files take longer than others". LOL. ALL of my apps are taking forever. mostly sent in 11/15, and only one decision back so far.

Hey everybody, there is still hope for those of you waiting! I got the complete email on 12/7, and just got a packet on Saturday--in with $20k/year!! Not sure why they seem to be jumping around a bit in terms of which applicants they respond to first, but I'm sure yours is coming up soon, Veritas!

WLed on Saturday. Can anyone offer info regarding ND's waitlist? Is it particularly tough to get in off the WL? How many students are WLed per cycle? Any info would help - this is a dream school for me!

So decisions are coming out only by snail mail now? I don't need to freak out every time my blackberry vibrates?

I will anyhow.

Got two small envelopes in the mail today that freaked me out, but they turned out to both be from W&L, one encouraging me to accept my offer of admission and the other detailing my scholarship award which I already received by email...well I guess nothing is better than bad news.

Sorry to here about the rejection. It looks like they sent out a wave including rejections, WLs, and acceptances. This is really starting to freak me out.
