Oh, I'm not feeling too down. I'm so relieved I got into NYU early, it really is making the rest of my cycle much less stressful.

Some say that UCLA admits very few people of the waitlist. Between 0 and 50 from about 200 students.

I wouldn't say admitting 50 or so students is "very few" though. It's around 40-60 if I recall, per Dean Schwartz.

my question is do they give offers to 40-60 people and maybe 20 choose to accept?  or do they have 40-60 people taking the offers and maybe they offer 80-100?

I'm interrupting race war to bump my own question.  it's a good one and you all know it.  so someone informed answer it.

Miss Beesly, your GPA is quite good and your LSAT is at least above the 95th percentile. 

Why did you ignore my response to this statement?

Which statement? This^one? You're right, my numbers are decent enough, but don't forget my amazing ECs, LORs and PS.  ;)

Don't act smart, Pam.  Obviously you can't be.

No, my response to Ender's statement that you quoted.

I stated earlier in the thread that I have no issue with AA admits numbers-wise who have more to offer.  Since urMom was adversely decided upon by two lower ranked schools than NYU, it's likely she has little else to offer.

And since I was admitted to Michigan and Virginia but held at Notre Dame, UM and UVA must have had some ulterior motive.

Are "holds" now equal to "rejections"?
