I want to use offers to help me narrow down the list of schools I'm seriously considering and to help me decide where to visit, but I have no idea when to expect those offers to come. I submitted all of my apps in October and received most of my acceptances in December.

Anyone else experiencing the same dilemma? Any thoughts on roughly when I can expect to hear from schools like Cal (matching offer submitted already), NYU, Chicago, or UPenn?
Absolutely. Looks like you're doing a little better than me, but I've gotten into all my goal schools (expect Chicago WL) and only have t14 offers from Michigan. I'll definitely be visiting regardless, since I love Michigan, but it'd be nice to have more offers on the table, especially from Northwestern or Penn....

Suits is pretty unrealistic, though it is rather entertaining. It also fails the Bechdel test consistently.



That being said, I have aspirations of being the next Harvey Specter!

Now that I've completed my Feb retake I can reduce my neuroticism from decisions by halving it with when my score will come out and if it will be better or worse.

I pity your mind for the next several weeks. One wait is bad enough.

Last year, someone got off the WL at U Chicago in mid-September. So it's feasible that a student could be admitted for the 2020 cycle (UVA?) before the 2019 cycle is completed.

Food for thought. The wait continues.

Chicago uses the quarter system. The first day of class is late September, so presumably that was someone accepted right before classes were starting

I know. It's a huge hassle, at least for undergrads. My brother's internship started a month after everyone else, and he was the only intern at the end by about the same...

I think I'm the only person I've met who really likes the quarter system. My biggest issue with it was that Bonnaroo was always during spring finals.

See, I kind of enjoy sending semi-passive aggressive emails to those TTT schools asking that they "terminate all correspondence" with me! Their responses are also amusing.

I'm pretty sure they make up 55% of my e-mails right now. Golden Gate will not cease, even on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

Sometimes by marking it spam, Google is able to do some voodoo and find an unsubscribe link that doesn't exist in the actual email. That has saved me from a few (Golden Gate).

Thanks. I'll probably ditch this e-mail after I figure out where I'm going, or just use it to have everything I don't care about sent there.

Seriously? What are you waiting for?

Now there's a charge.
Just kidding ... it's still FREE!
