Post by popcorn123 » Tue May 26, 2020 3:17 pm

Hope everyone is doing well during quarantine. We are in this together.

This is still super early to submit apps, but I thought a thread could be helpful. Share stats and updates here.

School rank: lower T14
GPA: high 3.6X
Class rank: top ~10% (based on last year's cutoffs)

Will be applying later this week. Holding on since spring transcripts not out yet.

Top 20-30
GPA - 3.79 (one CALI equivalent)
School doesn't release class ranks but should be top 10% based on Latin honors cut-off.

Good luck all!

I'll be applying soon, just waiting for a third rec letter I recently asked my professor for. Stats are:

T2
GPA - 4.06
School doesn't rank, but I used the estimator and I'm thinking top 4-5%?

Good luck all! We got this :)

Anyone have any idea when we will start to hear back? Seems like mid-June was when they normally started sending out decisions in previous years, but I'm curious if they will start earlier this year with the whole P/F situation.

T2
4.04
3 Calis
Was ranked ~4% with a 4.00 after first semester but optional pass/fail might make it hard to predict since elected p/f classes are factored out of rank calculations

According to previous posts, they can take anywhere from 2-3 weeks? I'm kind of expecting something before the first week of July?

Nothing yet - just got an email about journal that looked like a decision but wasn't. Hoping for the next few days. Best of luck!

Like msf305 above, I've only gotten the journal email. I did call them today though, and the answer they gave me was "July and August". Which ... yeah, let's hope that means they'll start sometime this week?
