Went blank. Considering I've only been in review for a week and my numbers aren't that great, I guess I'm expecting a ding from my own undergrad. Ouch. :(

I got no mailing info. Just a blank status checker. We may be in the same batch.

Sounds like you applied to a lot of the same schools I did. I'm taking UIUC with $30K/yr.

So jealous of you all you blanks. I'm trying to be patient, but at this point it seems just a little discourteous. Why do you have the earliest application deadline if you're not going to do any serious reviewing until March?

this is my theory regarding UW

they have the earliest deadline + they claim to not review any applications till after this deadline

SO, I think they take every single application they get, and they divide them into 3 groups

A - Auto Accept in relation to the group as a whole
B - Auto Reject in relation to the group as a whole
C - Undecided

then they take all those Undecided, and do the process all over again, but now the accept/reject standards are altered based on the new group as a whole

maybe as they get into the later rounds they work in a waitlist methodology also

It's a reasonable theory, but if it's true, they should remove the language that says they review them in the order completed.

I'm just a little fed up. I was really, really hoping I'd get a signal by the end of this week, and now I'm guessing I won't hear anything until after their spring break. I'll be perfectly happy to end up in Boulder if I get rejected, but if that's what's coming, I wish they'd tell me so I can get on with it.

well i literally applied an hour before the deadline, so if they are reviewing them in order received, they must almost be done

Darn it, I was thinking the reason I'm not blank was because I applied on 1/15 just before noon, but I guess that's not it.

I'm pretty sure someone asked a member of the admissions committee about their admissions policies, and that is indeed how they do it.

honestly, if i was running a law school, that's how I would do it

i'd just keep going until I've admitted the max amount that previously determined, then instead of admitting start waitlisting, until you pretty much just run out of applications

Blanked status checker. I really would love to get this, but my pen is poised to sign the check to L & C if it's a ding.

congrats on UIUC great school.. they really know how to make you feel welcome too, w/ mailings and emails. I will most likely be a Trojan b/c west coast is preferred, but UIUC makes it a tough decision.
