Got my hold letter yesterday :/
I just passed 3 months with no contact. Advice?
That's great news! Are you international? I thought UPenn was doing phone acceptances.
I didn't retake, I'm just doing a grad program above. The only thing I really changed was application date and the results have been DRAMATICALLY different. Last cycle, Michigan dinged me and NYU waitlisted me, now I'm in at both. Personal statements, recs, everything is the same as last cycle, which goes to show that timing really does make a difference.
that's incredible. i was just reading a segment on the Penn website that said that reapplicants would not be accepted unless something dramatically different changed. what a success story!
what kind of grad program is it? do you think there's any way that could have tipped the scales?
