so, who right?

You are. Nice to see you again.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Penn State-- Dickinson
« on: March 25, 2005, 02:31:08 PM »

Notified today via very nice email.  My inlaws live close to Carlisle and I got a fee waiver, so I applied.  It is doubtful I'll attend, but the live-with-the-inlaws option is always a good one. (They're better than average).  I must say that, despite the Dickinson bashing, I thought the campus was beautiful, Carlisle is a cute town and I really liked the school's ADR focus.

Not entirely sure, but when I initially asked abut waitlists, she specifically said WL decisions weren't going to be made until May.
NOOOOOO!!! My waitlist dreams are dead. ha.
Ah well, compared to the applicant pool, a rejection is definitely what I deserve.

Congrats magi.

And by all means I encourage everyone to call and check their status and post the results.

ha. I agree. But I emailed the admissions office and told them that I was sure they were busy b/c of the status changes and that the Internet discussion boards were all abuzz. I asked the following:

1. Are waitlists sent out by email or USPS?
2. Was there a mass decision movement? ie, all rejections, all waitlists, or a mix of decisions?

I'll let you know if I hear back. I promised I'd post the answers to the board.

OK, my fervent Cornell dream is dead.  I called the admissions office.  The person was very nice and checked her computer.  She said that a decision was rendered today.  I asked do you email all accepted students.  She said yes and then said I am sorry but you will not be getting an email from us.

 :( :( :( :( :( :(  

I'm sorry. I have to say that it was really nice of her to tell you something, though. Yesterday, a few people called and got nuthin'.

Witter, your list of acceptances reads like a hiking vacation dream come true.

There's a reason for that. :)

Quality of life was my #1 factor.  Not rankings. I have a family, that's why, and we like outdoors stuff. My husband's a serious cyclist and backcountry skier. I'm loving the Boulder thing right now.  I'm feeling for the Cornell people here.  I don't really care anymore; I just want to get waitlisted-- and I think I have a good shot at that. A better shot at a rejection, though.  ;)

I think all it means is that Cornell is finally getting caught up on its backlog of apps.  I doubt that everyone who has gone to "decision" in the last few days is getting the same decision. I expect that many of you will be getting email messages soon.  Best of luck to you all.

I noticed that on LSN some people added a "decision" date to their pending status. I'm assuming it's because they're us/like us and have a decision with no status, so I changed mine, as well.  I suppose it gives us all something more to obsess over. I'm sure just having me in this crowd is worrisome to all of you, but I really think, as I said before, it's not going to be all one type of decision. And, as I said in my blog, I'm the Queen of Soft Factors.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Seattle U. or Hastings?

I am still crossing my fingers that a last minute letter from the UWashington will make this a moot point but, any thoughts on Seattle U vs. UC Hastings. Right now I live in Seattle and am very happy here, own a house, am married and my husband likes his job here, but wouldn't have a hard time finding work in San Fran.

I received 10k in scholarship money at Seattle, nothing at UC Hastings, but could be instate after the first year.  I know Hastings is much higher ranked than Seattle U, but if I have hopes to eventually work in the NW then which is preferable?  Any thoughts would be appreciated, I'm trying to figure this out so when April 15th rolls around I will have my check filled out!  Thanks!
You might consider renting out your house while you're gone if you end up at Hastings. We were going to do that, but then decided we weren't sure we wanted to end up back in Idaho.  The standard appreciation, though, would have probably paid for my loans.

No, by "today," I meant today. When people who posted yesterday said "today," you should read that as "yesterday." I didn't see anybody else post today who went to decision today, as opposed to yesterday's "today."

I couldn't tell you. When I saw this thread this morning, I checked mine and it was "decision." I hadn't checked it yesterday.  I am assuming they've updated the status of a lot of people, and I don't think you should look too much at others' numbers, etc.  I'll bet there are different decisions that went to "decision" at basically the same time. Good luck to you.
