We discussed it shortly in the "Schools you've been complete at FOREVER?" thread. 

I'm just gonna wait and see what happens.  If they want me, they want me.  If they can't see my qualifications in my resume and p.s., then I'm ok with it. 

Also, my fiancee plans on taking the CPA in Pennsylvania this summer, and it will be a huge pain for her to leave the state.  So I'm once again considering Pitt.

I'm guessing I'll get the same letter b/c you guys all have strong numbers.  Did you not write the "why case" essay?  i didn't.  :-\
I didn't write the "Why Case" letter.  Looks like they are scared of high-scoring people who didn't write that essay.  So we'll just have to give them what they want!

I got the hold letter today and called.  There is supposedly no chance of merit aid after being on the hold list.

I didn't get anything at all.  Not even a Hold.
