Wash U Waitlist

Wash U Waitlist
« on: March 13, 2004, 05:43:16 PM »
I was waitlisted at Wash U today.  3.2, 164. 
I didn't really want to go to Wash U anyway but it has me worried about the rest of my pending decisions.  I applied very late and I fear that I won't be getting into my desired school, GW (part-time). 

So, if you have been waitlisted at Wash U join me here.

I have not heard about the likelihood of getting off of the waitlist.  Within two hours of receiving the letter I had placed a letter of continuing interest in the mail.

When you say you applied very late - How late? Not past the deadline late, right?

I applied on February 10.  I know, I'm an idiot.

I was waitlisted at Wash U too.  3.36/154, 165.  I need to send in that letter before I forget about it.

ACK!  I was about to put my waitlist response letter in the mail and gave it final check and was missing an entire word as a typo! 

I can read the mind of the adcomm now 'this guy cant even proofread....DING!'

and there would have ended the story of Aonghus and WashU... if he hadn't quadruple checked it :)

drewpac- you heard back that fast?  I applied to Washington in December and I have not heard a peep from them since they verified they had gotten all of my materials!

In the meantime, I got into better schools and got nearly full rides to them.  I don't know what trouble Washington is having with it.  You would think it wouldn't be that hard.
