161/3.9x, chances?

Postby bailey1089 » Sat Dec 04, 2010 12:49 am

Hey all!

I just got my admit from William & Mary (I'm shocked) but it looks like I may be waiting for the other schools for awhile. In the meantime... chance me?!

Great undergrad, good softs, great LOR, nonURM

admitted:
William & Mary

applied:
Vanderbilt
Wash U
USC

will apply:
UVA (visiting in January and deciding if I want to do RD/ED, putting in app by Jan 5th)

I'm expecting denials everywhere else, but figured it couldn't hurt to try (hooray for fee waivers). Also, I'm open to submitting a few more apps if theres anywhere else in the T20 I have a decent chance :) I might submit and app for UCLA if William & Mary (for whatever reason) gave me any money.... Thoughts?

Thanks!

Unfortunately, I think you probably looking at WL/Reject at all of those schools - especially at UVA.

Sorry :(

UVA RD is a definite out. You have a small chance at ED, but if you want any shot at all, you'll need to submit your app ASAP.

Ding likely at USC, especially if you're out-of-state.

Also, at this point in the game, waiting to apply to any school in which you're interested is a bad move, much less UVa. Get those apps in yesterday.

Get in the UVA ED ASAP if that's important to you. You have a decent shot if you're 3.92+ (their 75%).

Yeah, true. I'm not positive yet about how serious I am about UVA, but I'll decide this weekend and submit asap!

...what about Vandy or WashU?? Waitlist?

Thanks again!

Vandy almost assuredly not.

Not sure about WashU.

Visit UVA asap. Truly it's the best school you have a great chance at (if you ED and GPA is above 3.92 as previous poster noted).

Even if you do get WL at those, you will almost assuredly never make it off. And you probably won't even get WL.
