Any movement for anyone? Sounds like a batch of regular application rejections is going out today. I'm holding steady at DR 12/14. I visited BU this weekend and really didn't like it. WUSTL I like but it poses some serious regional issues. With a 3.5, 169 I am considering maybe taking another year if Cornell doesn't take me. Next year can't possibly be worse than this one... right?

i think competitive will have peaked this year. isn't the economy picking back up or at least not getting any worse?

Cornell says that applications have increased by 52% from last year (http://cornellsun.com/section/news/cont ... 52-percent).

There is no way any year can be as competitive as this one....wish I was born a couple years earlier or later.

Or earlier . . . then you could have been getting out of LS just as the market was peaking (hopefully you'd have something secure when it tanked though)

That's strange; I wonder what it means. That they pulled your file for review, perhaps?

Hey najumobi, if you did get into Cornell and had to pay sticker would you really consider taking them over your scholly money from Wustl??

Yes, sounds like they have pulled your applications. Good luck! I am still DR 12/4 so I guess I am destined to be the last application reviewed this cycle. :cry:

It just wasn't for me. It felt like everyone was young and very fratty. From the discussion in the BU thread it's obvious that people had VERY different experiences. Some agreed with me, others loved it and felt like there were lots of older and mature students. I think it is part personality match, part maybe I just got stuck in a bad group. I haven't made a final decision though.

i would lean towards going with cornell at sticker. i'm also waitlisted at vandy which i think i actually have a realistic chance of getting off and would lean towards going with vandy at sticker as well. i think i would have reservations about choosing either at sticker b/c my mom would be pissed at me if i didn't take the money.

Its funny that you say that because I had a very different experience when I visited. I was shocked by how old and nerdy people looked (not to say that fratty and nerdy are antonyms).

+1 Just changed this morning, had checked this weekend was still Decision Made then.

Woah, you and I have identical #s also - wonder if they pulled a bunch with similar numbers and we are all competing for a spot or two...

I also have similar numbers and was recently pulled for review...I am so intrigued by this mysterious committee.

If I had to guess at how they will decide I would say it resembles this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uYuScZOyiM
