Congrats Sambamc. I just learned I got into Northwestern too.

I really liked the idea of this thread when it was first started by the OP:I figured we should start this board so that everyone applying this cycle has a better idea of where everyone else within their stat range has been accepted. I'll begin...
My Numbers are: 3.66, 157. Yes...those are my real numbers. It was completely unexpected and I'm really excited about this opportunity to attend UMich.I feel truly blessed that the admissions committee put some serious consideration to my application.

In at UMich. Got a big envelope yesterday with a nice handwritten note from Assistant Dean Sarah Zearfoss, flashdrive and a UMich portfolio. I'm still in shock because this was completely unexpected. Soooo excited!

I actually pretty thoroughly cut mine down from about 850 words to their strangely low 500 word limit. Hopefully they'll at least give me a few points for following the rules.
I emailed last week to confirm and haven't gotten a response. It seems like they're just taking a long time to let applicants know. I sent mine in a month ago as well.

Hey so I submitted my apps about a week ago to 10 schools. 8 schools have sent me an email saying that they have received my app and gave me info for a status checker. However, I haven't received any email correspondence from either Georgetown or NYU. Both requested my LSDAS report within a day or two of submitting my app. Any reason to be concerned about this?
For Georgetown, you have to go to their website and create an account, which will give you access to their status checker. I submitted my application in early November and just realized this point early this week when I called the admissions office and heard it on the voicemail.
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 just got the same letter from Georgetown. Better than a flat out rejection. Is there anything to do express my continued interest?
