hmmm, a lot of movement today with 158ers who have above average GPAs.

Does anyone think that by close of business they'll have a few more decisions out?

well it's in a super competitive market and is on the expensive side. Given I don't have scholarship numbers there, it was going to be a heck of a lot of debt.

Hey all, long time lurker, first time poster here. Just wanted to say how helpful I have found this board to be and that I've found some really great tips from people here, so thank you for that.

I too received a waitlist from American today (3.87, 158). I was wondering what the protocol is for sending in a LOCI? How long should I wait (if at all?) Also, I've seen people suggest that an additional LOR can't hurt. Does this hold true even though American was pretty rigid in their application stating that you shouldn't send in more than 2 LORs?

Thanks again everyone, congrats to all those with acceptances, and good luck to everyone else stuck with me on the WL or still waiting to hear!

Good luck to everyone waitlisted today. Not a whole lot of love for the 158 apparently, despite some awesome GPAs.

DR 1/15 but still nothing in the mail... it's strange. It seems like everybody has already received theirs here.

Definitly no love for 158ers, WLed by email yesterday.
Does anyone know if they will let you be considered for the part-time program?
