I did. Who knows how useful it was, but I got an Acceptance email today instead of the Waitlist my numbers would suggest ----> 165, 3.03, non-URM Resident

See you all in the fall!


Congrats! Can't wait to meet everyone next fall.

I fully anticipate a rejection but UW is a top choice for me too.

Did anyone else get nervous about the "complete in review" email from Wisconsin reminding to disclose everything? I mean, i've never even gotten a traffic ticket, so im not worried but sheesh I felt the heat!

I got that email a few hours after I received the status checker email. Think it's just standard protocol for them.

Mine just changed to decision made and then in the mailings box it says decision status email sent. For those who were accepted, how long did it take to get the snail mail info?

I called and asked them that this week. They gave me the generic "we generally say 6-8 weeks" answer...

Heard nothing back from them at all until 12/14 which was actually the latest of any of the big batch of schools I applied to that weekend. I went complete the next day, 12/15, and got admitted today.




Congrats! Guess you were put right into the auto-admit stack.

Where does UWisc fall on your list?

*checking status* Nope, I was not in the same pile... :D

UW is very highly respected in Wisconsin. I'd say it's going to get you further than any of those you named. The only ones I'd say have better name recognition here are like Harvard, Yale, Michigan.

I handed my deferral papers into the admissions office today. I guess I am now officially an incoming student for Fall 2010!

Well at least someone else is in my shoes. I was beginning to think they lost my application or something.

C'mon UW, an acceptance this week would be an awesome Christmas present :D
