all 26 of my apps are in and complete, most have been for about a month i think. (i need to double check on one that i have let slide).In: Iowa (today - my first acceptance...woo hoo!)Deferred: Georgetownfyi - i take the deferral at gtown and the iowa yes as a HUGE sign that they have actually read my application and are considering soft factors. i saw a good number of people get rejected from gtown with much stronger numbers than i have, and all the iowa admits (as of tonight) have a 3.75 gpa and up. since i am a splitter in addition to being a non-trad, i have a 15 year old 2.83 ugpa to overcome. (whoa. seriously.)so take heart, adcomms DO read the apps, and what you say matters.
