God bless Muzak...
it not new section, skippy, just moderate variation on one of four r.c. texts.
take few deep breaths.
Rejection letter from UW came today.
I've got a 177/3.3. What the bleep are they looking for? My index on LSN is over 95, with the average accepted index being about 93, and the highest rejected index being a 93.9 or something similar.
I got waitlisted at UVA (also out of state), which I think would be a heck of a lot tougher than getting accepted to UW. The problem is that a waitlisting at UVA doesn't do me any good and UW was one of my top choices.
This one hurts.
Sorry to hear that...
Are you in-state? UW has a goal to enroll 70% in-staters(if I remember correctly from their website), and this may have been a factor if you are out-of-state.
Also they may have thought you were overqualified and rejected you for yield protection. I have gathered on this board that UW's admission standards are pretty random and unpredictable.
I am still waiting for my UW letter...
What does "yield protection" mean? I didn't read the 70% stat on the web, but I will certainly go back to look for it since I would be an out-of-stater applicant.
I've been watching UW on LSN, and I'm fraking scared of that school. I see a lot of quality getting rejected. Don't they "claim" to accept/enroll 20% of students 30+? Frankly that was one of the factors that attracted me to them..that and their incredible facilities.
My gpa would garner me an auto-reject if they really are so strict with GPA. I don't know whether to keep or remove them from my app list.
