Complete in OCT and NOV and no word?!?!?!?!!?

Postby PAR12 » Thu Jan 27, 2011 6:03 pm

I went complete at all my schools in October and November. If I have not heard back does that mean I am either going to be waitlisted or rejected?

Accepted
Cornell
BC
Fordham
Loyola LA

Waitlisted
Penn

Have not heard from - all which I would prefer to go to
Michigan
UCLA
USC
Berkley
Columbia
NYU

Opinions are welcome.

Thanks

i would guess yes, almost certainly a WL at michigan at least, and i don't know about the rest but i'd guess all WL/reject. you might still have a chance at UC because i think they're doing committee reviews right now. WL often come out last/super late in the cycle (unless you're talking about Penn and some other schools that are more prompt with them.)

Assuming you can write a very strong PS and have great LORs, enjoy UCLA (85%) and USC (75%). Michigan is a toss up, and the others are dings. Pick UCLA, and profit.

Also, not a bad idea to try NU. It's late in the cycle, but it's worth a shot. You'll never know unless you apply.

Michigan and NYU you are almost certainly waitlisted. Columbia's first batch of RD decisions just went out this week I believe, but your numbers don't give you the best shot. I am in the same boat as you at these schools.

UCLA seems to be sending decisions in a very arbitrary manner so I wouldn't worry about your chances there yet. However, they are known for weighing GPA more heavily than most schools. USC just started releasing decisions earlier this month. Lots of great candidates are still waiting for a decision there. I would think your odds are better at USC than UCLA, but I think your odds are good you get into at least one of them. Good luck!

Only slightly. The two schools are almost numerical twins, and they look for a lot of the same things, but I've gotten the impression that UCLA surprises a lot more of its borderline candidates. Again though, your PS and LORs will have to be stellar for any of this to be accurate.

This is true. Shine on paper, and you'll be somewhere in SoCal.

What??? UCLA is much more like 50/50. You are below their 25% GPA, which is BAD NEWS BEARS. Yea, you have an LSAT above their 75%, but UCLA isn't known for being particularly splitter friendly. THAT SAID, they have admitted a few folks with your numbers this year and last.

LSP gives you 57%, and Hourumd gives you 54%. These are usually slightly generous. You've got a decent chance at UCLA. But I wouldn't count on it.
