For those who called and were rejected, did you have any mailings listed? Still trying to figure out if there is any correlation here...

My mom called (as me) and was told they don't give out decisions over the phone. The decision is on it's way to me in Spokane. Is this a good sign?!

Accepted as of 3/30 via snail mail! This feels good, I've been striking out a little bit lately.

Perhaps more to the point, did anyone who went blank today get accepted?

No, no mailings listed (besides the original 'app received' one).

I wish I knew what they were looking for this cycle. I have two LSAT scores, so that may have been the reason for my ding. That being said, I figured I'd at least get a WL. What a day...

I really hope mailings mean you are in or at least waitlisted...

Well.. now that UW is a complete rejection, I am going to send my deposit in to Davis. But I also hope to do some work- an extra essay or two, and some more LOR's - to get off the WL at Berkeley, USC, or Georgetown. It's worth a shot. The heartbreaking part of this is that my girlfriend is in at the business school at UW- deposit sent and all. So we'll see how long distance works. I was counting on UW- would have made my life much, much easier.

Man, that is just awful, with the girlfriend and all. Good luck with those waitlists though, I bet you have a good shot at getting off of at least one of them.

Well good luck then. I sincerely hope you get off the WL at one of the three. Hopefully this turns into a positive.

So sorry, Neelio. You could always try to transfer from Davis next year! The first year between you two would be tough anyway, with the workloads and all.

Waitlisted at Berkeley and rejected by UW? These guys really are picky.

I'm resisting the urge to call or e-mail. Wonder how long it takes a letter to get from Seattle to New York...

Too long. I'm in Brooklyn, so I called. As I said above, I told them I had a deposit due at another school next week and they emailed it to me.

IR 3/20. Status went blank today. Called, and told my letter was mailed today & they won't tell me what it said over the phone. The call ended with an ominous "good luck" from the admit staff. I could barf.

But I also realize that my score may be the kicker this cycle, which means study hard and retake the test. Maybe I'll join class of 2013, or maybe I will have to postpone another year. Best of luck to all and it's been a fun ride.

Peace,

Profits - Good luck to you my IR 1/21 buddie - we waited out long enough for a decision, and its funny but I'm sure we'd both be happy waiting even longer if necessary.


Good luck to you too. I would wait for as long as they want me to, honestly. But the moment of truth has finally arrived, now I wait a few more days.
