Wait List / Numerous waitlists, admission chances
« on: May 09, 2005, 02:59:33 PM »
Being on several hundred waitlists myself, I was wondering what people thought the chances are of being admitted to some. Truthfully I'm on 8 right now and might be on 10 or eleven in a few days.

Where should I go next fall? / Minnesota...Def, WL?
« on: May 07, 2005, 04:03:05 PM »
Has anyone experienced this yet: Deferred way back in January now Waitlisted. I don't actually even know if I was waitlisted but i got an email when i sent in my transcript saying a decision letter had already gone out over a week ago. I am guessing I was either denied or waitlisted. Just curious on people's thoughts, etc.

Wait List / Chances for BC priority waitlist?
« on: April 28, 2005, 08:40:35 AM »
Does anyone have an idea of what the chances are from being pulled off this waitlist? I have been hearing that BC doesn't go to the "priority" well to often for its class. Is this true? Also, I would assume that this means there is a regular waitlist also...right?

Wait List / Deferred at UMinn...any news
« on: April 25, 2005, 01:37:46 PM »
I know that several people on LSN have been def, accepted. Has anyone else heard anything? I realize that they said may 30 was when we'd hear but I think that some people should start hearing very soon.

Where should I go next fall? / UGA, is anyone there?
« on: April 18, 2005, 02:24:57 PM »
Is it just me or is UGA incredibly slow and snippy. Their admissions staff (at least those who answer the phone are bordering on mean. My app has been in the process of review for several months.

Separate question: is georgia only a school to go to if you want to work in Georgia. I looked at their placement and this seems like the case. Personally, I'd want to end up in a city like Chicago or DC...I think.

Wait List / Waitlist, (I'm not a big) fanclub
« on: April 12, 2005, 09:05:13 PM »
 I thought I'd post a thread for people like me: being placed on (for now) four waitlists. I'm guessing I could be on as many as eight, and only really would go to a few of those. Anyone else want to join this fantastically awful thread, be my guest.

Where should I go next fall? / Who doesn't like Robert Goulet
« on: April 09, 2005, 03:13:59 AM »
First of all Goulet is the champ. Feel free to comment on how awesome he is and how his sheer beauty stuns the psychological processes. GOOOOOOOOOOOULET!

So I applied to the JD/MA in international service at American and got a letter today saying I had been admitted to the MA portion. They want a deposit by April 29, but I have yet to hear from the law school. Opinions on what will happen? What should I do?

Where should I go next fall? / Deferred..Have you heard yet
« on: April 06, 2005, 11:01:45 PM »
Okay, so I've been deferred at Texas and Minnesota and Held at Wisc. Has anyone heard from any of these schools who is has been deferred? Specifically Texas, which is my number one...I know I have no chance of getting in.

Denials / I guess substantive factors don't matter
« on: April 06, 2005, 07:41:49 PM »
I must say, after getting a rejection from Emory today I realized how little adcomms take into account substantive factors like school quality, GPA, published works, and the like. It saddens me that people get 70K scholarships for getting a good score on a 4 hour test which has only a small correlation with achievement (though I know it's larger than others). I thought I'd female dog for a bit since this whole process is disheartening.
