Predict rest of cycle...

Postby traehekat » Wed Mar 10, 2010 9:55 pm

Bored, figured I would throw this out there and see what some of you think. 164, 3.59 top ten public, average softs, average letters, average personal statement, not a URM.

Still waiting on...

Indiana - Bloomington
North Carolina
Arizona

I have acceptances from American, Penn State, OSU, DePaul, Loyola Chicago, Santa Clara, Wake Forest, Colorado, Florida, and Iowa. Rejections from UIUC, Notre Dame, Boston College, and Boston University. Waitlists from Wisconsin, Emory, and William and Mary. I predict a waitlist from North Carolina and acceptances from Indiana and Arizona (if I ever get around to doing the Why Arizona? essay). Sound about right at this stage in the cycle? I applied early January to all of these schools.

Well, dinged at ND today, so I am batting 1.000 with my predictions.

I would also expect dings at BC and Emory, where you're below both medians.

Waitlisted at Emory, Wisconsin, and William and Mary. Three schools remain, hopefully I hear back soon.

3 more points and you could have had money at WUSTL :( Sad how the world works.

You should have applied to OSU. They would have given you money plus instate after your first year/living in columbus aint a bad deal at all..

Yeah, sick how the difference between 3 points could just be a few guesses too. Oh well...

I actually did apply to OSU. I received $25,500 over three years, and I am definitely considering them given the option to pay resident tuition after the first year.

Oh cool, I think its a stellar program (OSU ug here). Let me know if you have any questions about OSU, Moritz, or Columbus.
