REJECTED, ETC. TODAY

So I just got a "we think you're cute, but we are going to wait to see if someone hotter comes along; if not, then i guess we'll go out with you" letter from Georgetown yesterday.  Specifically, it said that every year they get a large number of early applicants who are also extremely qualified, which makes addmissions decisions difficult. Once they get a better sense of the entire applicant pool they will reevaluate my application in January and send me a final decision no later than Feb.13th.  They also said only a small number of applicants have had their applications held.

I was under the impression that if you applied early, you sometimes had a slightly better chance because not as many people get around to submitting their apps until thanksgiving or later. Was I off base here? Because considering that assumption, this letter throws me.  I was also wondering if anyone else got a similar letter, or had any thoughts/knowledge as to what my chances might be.

Thanks
i got the same letter on november 21st. i freaked out when the beginning sounded like a rejection letter, but i calmed down as i read through it. i hope they are serious when they say only a small number of apps are held and that many are eventually admitted...

Rejected at ND today via snail mail.

 ??? So far this cycle, ND is being far too odd for my liking.


Trying to make themselves feel better about football season by rejecting qualified applicants.

I get the feeling my Duke rejection is on the way after they lost to Michigan.

I'm sorry to hear that, really. That's ridiculous that they rejected you, I thought accept maybe or at least waitlist. The first one stings, even if it's not your top pick. I'm sure you'll have some good news from the UC system soon.

Thanks. I was hoping for a waitlist, but so long as the West Coast schools show me some love soon, I'll be happy.

Sorry about the reject - I know your pain.

Thanks.

It was a reference to my previous post in which I mused that God was smiting ND for rejecting me - they lost to Syracuse - and I hypothesized Duke was going to receive the same fate.

I'm actually still under review at Duke.

Waitlisted at UVA. Seems more like a rejection than an acceptance, so posted it in here.

Bummer.

What went through my mind with my UVA waitlist:

"Well at least they didn't reject me."

2 minutes later.

"Well they didn't exactly accept me either."

repeat, ad nauseum.

Are you going to write a LOCI?
