WTF... Chapman and Villanova Waitlist
« on: April 27, 2005, 02:53:04 PM »
Hi all,

I just don't understand how these Adcomms work through apps. I have been waitlisted at both Chapman (Tier 4) and Villanova (tier 2). Chapman was my target school and I was really hoping to get in. My numbers aren't great but WTF, I don't know whether I should be glad I got WL at Villanova or pissed that I got WL at Chapman.

Oh ya, my numbers are 2.81/155 (Bio & Psych).

My numbers are around the same as yours (a tad higher lsat) and I was a  Bio najor too.    I havent' heard from Villanova.. how did you find out about the waitlist? Did you call.  That sucks about chapman. I think you should call them up and ask why.  That seems odd.  It's hard being a bio major becuase it doenst matter what major you were they only look at the numbers making it frustrating.  I am finishing my masters in biomed science right now with a higher gpa and that's not even helping. Luckily I got into some place that I think I can live with but it wasn't my top choice at all.  .i'm sorry. good luck.
I love my philly phanatic :)

I called Villanova on yesterday and they told me I was WLed and that I should be getting notification in the mail soon. I have a fairly good relationship going with the assistant dean so I can maybe call her and ask her. I just dont want to annoy her with questions. I called her about 3 days ago asking about my waitlist status and if I should send in another LOR but she said that if I already have 3 on file than it wouldnt be necessary. I dont know if that was her way of saying "no, dont send it, it's useless".

Yes it does hurt being a Bio major, I started off as Pre-med and eventually realized that I have zero desire to go into medicine. I decided to double major in Psychology and minor in Education my senior year so I took 5 years to graduate. My GPA for my 4th and 5th year was a 3.7 but it didnt seem to help my overall GPA.

Best wishes

Chapman is a pretty tough school to get into these days- especially since their class is so damn small.

I'm actually working on a letter of continued interest hoping Chapman pulls through. I was thinking, what if I get into Villanova??? I dont want to move to the east but if I get in I just might go. I know I'm getting ahead of myself but I'm thinking it would be easier to transfer from Villanova (ranked 63rd) back to california, maybe Loyola or maybe even UCDavis or Hastings.

I am also waitlisted at Chapman. When I called the school they wouldn't tell me anything about the wait-list. I sent a letter of continued interest in March but that is all!
Have you heard anything?
