Dang Silent, you still havent heard from them! Yea I heard about the SMU decision, I am sorry. I am still trying to get into UHLC. I have a letter that is almost done and I will be sending it in this week. I am still hoping and praying. I NEED to be there this fall.
What do you mean, you 'heard'?
Not to hijack this thread, but -- as flippant as it sounds (and I don't mean it that way at all), I'm not upset about the SMU WL. Had I been accepted, I would have withdrawn because I really think my best two options are UH and WCL. But, I am determined to stick it out longer than the ad comms and force every school to give me some kind of decision -- I paid alot of money this cycle!!
As for UHLC, send the letter. Do you have any updates at all to make to a resume? Any hopes for getting another LOR? I've said it in other threads about Wait Lists, but I think it merits repeating --
Something that has really surprised me about how the wait list works, is that as it gets later in the summer, they start looking for people on the WL that they are certain will take the seat if they are offered it. In other words, make it abundantly clear that, even if its a few days before class starts, you will still drop everything and leave. One person at American told me they called a guy off the WL last year who was in Italy at the time, because he told them he had family in DC and would literally hop on the next flight home if they offered him a seat. Something opened up just before school started, and they called him not because he was the 'best' applicant, but because he was the one they knew would accept!
I know that's kind of an extreme example, but it shows how important it is to make it clear that you are the one who, if accepted, has a way and a will to get your butt over there.
If you really do want it that bad, that is! Good luck with UHLC, I really hope you get in!!
