OldCraig.  Are you referring to yourself as not being admitted when you were number one in your class?  I'm confused.  Or are you just posing a hypo.

In at GULC.  Small envelope.

Top 5% at AU

Congrats.  Great accomplishment coming from American as well with all of the people who try to transfer from there.

List of Reasons why this could happen:
1) you're white
2) you're male
3) you're white & male
4) you haven't gone to school anywhere impressive/unique in the past
5) you're white & male
6) you're not upper class, & have no one in your family tree who you can "network with"
7) you're still white & male
8) you lost your ancestral heritage when you came out of the womb "white & male"
9) you add absolutely nothing to a "diverse" student body
10) etc.  :-*


Well, what did your personal statement look like? Was it just "I want better opportunities" or something?

it looked like two typed pages of sheer gold

i did have a bad LSAT score though, oh yea, and i e-mailed them to disclose that one time i was a freshman in undergrad and got a housing infraction for being in the same room as beer... such a sweetly written e-mail too, lmfao

disclose guys, disclose.

Well, if you go to a school near GUlC they presumably get a ton of applications from there so that would explain it.  I've been told by numerous people that schools don't really care about URM for transfer admisssion.

i went decision last night....3.835, top 8% at a t2....

anyone know if a w/l or defer = "decision" on the online status checker?  or should i expect either an admit or reject?

Are you no longer deciding to apply to Columbia, NYU, and Chicago? Why the edit?

No, probably still applying, just decided it wasn't pertinent to the question, and would take the thread off on a tangent.
