FWIW, I called today and got the same response ... no EA transfer decisions until early May.  This poses some problems, as my deposit for another school to which I was recently accepted is due May 1. Guess I'm gonna have to hedge my bets and eat the $150 ...

they are contacting because when they sent their transcripts it didn't list what they were taking second semester

This information doesn't seem relevant if they were going to accept one as EA vs defer until 2nd semester is in. Any thoughts?

This is going to freak out so many people.

What is the ~rank of the schools for people getting contacted and what are their stats? It is probably not good news to be contacted since it most likely means they are concerned about what classes you will have completed or they are looking to see if you have a strong enough schedule to allow you to improve enough this semester to avoid rejection. I would bet it has more to do with deciding between defer and reject than defer and admit.

They contacted me.  I hope it isn't the case that I am going to be deferred.  I don't mean this to sound arrogant,  but I really don't think i can get better grades next semester.  I received a 3.99 last semester at a school in the 50s.  my school doesn't rank in between 1L semesters.  i know for a fact im in the top 5% though, and if I had to guess id say i'm in top 2%. (i think 3.6 is approx. top 10%)

Yeah those don't sound like edge numbers, maybe it is nothing other than just making sure students will have an adequate number of credits after this year.

I'm pretty sure GULC asking for second semester schedules is more a function of our schools not listing that information on the transcript than it is an indication of whether they view you as a strong candidate (as someone alluded to above).

In terms of stats: I am first in my class at a west coast T3.

I agree with beverfuzz - if they didn't post it the school just probably wants to know

As far as there being an increase number of apps this year - I think a lot has to do with the economy AND the fact that Gtown used to say on their website that those in the top 10/15% are competitive.  This year, they knocked out the 10 and now only say those in the top 15% are competitive...that would get more people applying for sure

Still complete here!
