Title: Any GULC EA deferrals still "Complete"?
Post by: gmasonlaw on July 06, 2009, 01:45:25 PM
EA Deferral.  Still Complete on status checker.  Anyone in the same boat?

You think this is a bad or good omen?

Are you sure that all of your updated materials are in with the admissions office?  I applied EA and was deferred until my 2nd semester grades were in.  I called gulc to make sure all my info was in because my statuscheck had never changed from complete since March.  The admissions office informed me that they can't change that for EA applicants.  I am sure you are fine but it is worth a quick call imo.  It was at this time the admissions office also mentioned that my app was under review.  At the very least you will get more information than you currently have.

I am also still stuck at complete as an EA deferred. It is weird because it says my file has been updated July 7th, but still has me at complete.

Hi toastie, I know you're worried about this but let me tell you that you're not the only one in this situation, i know atleast three more. Many applied EA, and were deferred and then still Complete. I personally think being "complete" is a good sign. They have liked you so far and want to keep your file in the running. Many people, including some with stellar numbers, were dinged and some of them even applied RD -- which one would think should take longer to make decisions on since EA folks applied before them -- but thats not how it apparantly works at gulc. Also, I highly doubt any offers will be made either from the "complete" status group, or from the "waitlisted" group. This is because all seats are now taken. I know this is a discouraging news. GULC has started to waitlist people that they thought were qualified but they just dont have spots available.

what are your stats, have you applied to other DC area schools (GW/AU/GMU/MD)?

This is such a ridiculous statement to make.  You have been posting on the boards constantly about gulc and the waitlist.  Based on your prior posts it is evident that you know nothing about how the system works.  gulc takes roughly 90 transfers a year, and many of the students apply to gulc as a "safety" school and have their hearts set on penn/nyu/columbia and other higher ranked schools.  All the seats are certainly not taken. 

For those of you still waiting, just be patient.  At least you are still in the game.  The admissions office can wait until other schools start rolling out decisions, which seems to be happening now, before they make more decisions with the hope that people will withdraw their apps.

I'd rather not get into personal attacks here, but I must point out that when I said "seats are taken" -- by no stretch of English language that means " they wont become available later." So while what you said is true (that many folks who are relying on GULC as "safety," may withdraw later,) it does not change: all seats are taken; at least for now. And I can demonstrate this.

GULC has started to place students on waitlists and preferred waitlists - this is coming directly from GULC (not my speculation): The people who are placed on "preferred waiting list," (not just regular W/L) are the ones that are very qualified to get admitted, and the school wants them included in their transfer class. However, due to no space being available, they can't be offered a spot. I cant speak for others, but it is a reasonable inference that given applicants are already being placed on such a list, that all seats are taken, at least for now. Will some become vacant at sometime before classes start? We'd sure hope so! But this is a different topic that was not within the scope of my earlier statement. I am open to everyone's comments on likelihood of getting admitted from a waitlist/pwl. For others, who want to engage in personal attacks, please don't bother.

Thanks everyone!

You still have yet to demonstrate this with any proof besides the fact you have gotten waitlisted. preferred or whatever it may be it does not mean that the people who are still complete are either denied or waitlisted seeing as how if they were wouldn't they already have a decision in then instead of just holding their app at complete.

Sure, they are some that are complete and not waitlisted/denied/whatever. But that does not change the fact brother : all seats are taken, for now. They *might* get in, but it would not be until later -- until others start to withdraw apps/offers.

Raheel, regardless of what your speculation, I don't think that GULC would just somehow hold apps regardless if they have room or not and not give them a decision. It doesn't make sense if all their seats are taken, and that since they have 2 different waitlists means that all seats are full. If all seats were full I would expect I would have gotten a response from them saying you were rejected. Whatever the reason might be, I just don't think their adcom would just hold my application for close to 8 weeks without telling ME who paid for them to look at it whether I got in or denied.

Dee, I think I know what is going on. Raheel wasn't very far off with her comments, but I think the game that GULC is playing is that either 1. They are waiting to see how many spaces they have after this week and then looking at our applications (which wouldn't make much sense because we applied EA first semester, therefore they already know our apps) or 2. they have already looked at our apps (which is most probable) and we seem like good candidates so they are holding our apps at "complete" till they figure out how many spots they have and hopefully give us good news. I honestly do not think that since we haven't heard back from them yet besides the fact that our apps are with adcom is a bad thing because if they were going to reject it, we would have gotten it a long time ago. Plus, i mean we applied EA first semester so there is no reason not to give us an answer earlier. If all these people are put on waitlists and preferred waitlist,the fact is we applied a lot earlier than them so we should have gotten an answer, but since we haven't and our status is set as "complete" and last updated since July 7th, I think we have a decent chance.

I was RD and went decision 10 minutes ago with no access. Maybe he was right, either way he didn't demonstrate any reasoning besides they had a waitlist out.

So, does everyone pretty much agree that being Complete as an EA Deferral right now is better than being Decision/Waitlisted?
Title: Re: Any GULC EA deferrals still "Complete"?
Post by: raheeltransfers on July 10, 2009, 09:28:31 PM
Toastie, I dont know why some are taking this personally. Let me qualify what I said is purely speculation - However, I think I am making some educated guesses. But even I hope I am wrong ! Even I hope that there are a ton of spaces available this moment and that they will be given to us. Because everyone here wants to get in GULC (including myself).

I agree with you in that GULC will wait until deposit deadlines (mid-july), then make offers based on how many spots remain available to be filled. And I completely concur that people that are complete, specially the ones that were "EA," have a VERY good chance. If anything, it is a good thing (to remain at complete). Because as you know, many regular applicants (non EA) have been WL or out right rejected. So that said, if someone is still "complete" and were a EA applicant, then that MUST mean that GULC likes something about them which holds them off from 1) rejecting, 2) wait-listing. My message was taken the wrong way. I truly was only trying to say that we are at the mercy of how many spots come available (aka how many people withdraw). I assure you that all of us here talking are very qualified people and really I hope each one of us can get in at GULC.

PS Recent update - Just today my friend who is at T1 top 4% in his class (applied regular cycle) went to "Decision" on the GULC website. And he has no access to the admitted student site. So who knows if he got accepted/rejected/waitlisted, but at least today he has no access to that site.

Still "Complete."  Anyone know when the GULC seat deposit deadlines are?

Yes, I was told Thursday, June 16. So may be next week we will hear something...?

Post by: gmasonlaw on July 15, 2009, 07:11:45 PM
And, still Complete.  Anyone else still in this category?  I'm hoping 7/17 will be a good day for all those EA Deferrals who are still waiting for a Decision.

Post by: julieb9999 on July 16, 2009, 09:45:22 AM
GULC continues to baffle me, I have now gone from "complete" for several months to "unavailable."  This doesn't seem good... I was an EA deferral.  When I called this morning the Admissions Committee indicated that they had made further decisions, which are set to be mailed today.  Anyone else in a similar situation?

I live near DC, so I should hear shortly and I will be sure to share that with the group - good or bad :(

Best of luck!

Were you deferred EA?  Anyone here still EA & Complete?  One of my friends was just accepted and she applied EA.

No, I applied 6/15.  My application didn't go complete until about 10 days ago, and then went to decision Thursday.

transferchica, thanks for sharing this info, did you apply to both FT/PT or FT only? Thanks also for withdrawing :)

gmasonlaw, are you still showing "complete"? You might want to call and find out whats going on, it sounds strange!

GULC's OCI bidding deadline is this Friday (7/24) Anyone admitted after that date will have not be able to take part, atleast thats what I was told by their career office.
