I applied to Rutgers at the end of November and was accepted at the start of Jan. I’m not sure if the whole UR thing bc I feel like when I looked at my statuses I was either just waiting a decision or went to straight A/WL/R.
I love how penn state writes in my WL letter "We hope you will consider this a positive step in the admissions process! Your application exhibits many strengths and we hope to eventually be able to offer you a spot in our incoming class."
oh and I have the stomach flu and had to go to the hospital last night because I vomited for ten straight hours, left hospital at 4 am. had a final at 8 am. one at 12pm. and one coming up at 3pm.
@WetClammyCoyote: thank you!! Yes I heard but I’m nervous I applied too late in the cycle and not much money exists 😩
I think im going to send penn state a harshly worded email about how I think its complete bullshit they literally told everyone else who applied after me their decision within like 6-8 weeks, made me wait 15 whole weeks for a WAITLST aka more waiting
@ThisIsTheEnd: im not sure if u were asking about yale but theyre full and expecting little to no movement so it makes sense to cut down the pool
If theyre not expecting movement wouldnt they just cut everyone then?
@ThisIsTheEnd: no, if ppl deffer or they lose ppl over the summer they might take some1 to replace them but it wouldnt be a lot of movement so they are probably keeping a smaller pool for that
So i outright asked them since they are vague but fordham is full as of now. Why they dont announce it idk
all good! i take frequent breaks from lsdata besides checking BU's page
I do think it is a bad sign for the schools who have been quiet thus far
Schools seem to either know they have slots (Mich, GULC, Harvard) or are making massive cuts (Penn/WUSTL/Yale)
I am guessing that if they aren't doing anything right now.. they know they are pretty much full.. but just probably not by enough to feel comfortable with what the programs above them are going to do.
back of the envelope math: the average % of applicants on LSD responding with results from H/Y/Chicago (three peer schools that seem to be done admitting) is around 85%. SLS has gotten back to ~71% of applicants, leaving 14% left, assuming that the non-response rate is constant and the proxy-comparison is reasonable. that would actually suggest ~200 people JUST on LSD. if you assume that LSD is like half the applicant pool (maybe more?) then you can end up with an estimate as high as 400
there's a ton of uncertainty/assumptions there, but basically it suggests that there are a few hundred (100-400) people who have not yet heard back from stanford....
Tbh i would be surprised if theyre not pretty much full
hmm that sounds like a lot of math. why dont we just take attendance (im here !)
@burnercell: yes perhaps one person drops out but what are the chances that enough will drop out lol... it would have to probably depend on other schools taking people off their lists resulting in withdrawals resulting in people taking those spots
I was wondering if I could get an explanation as to why it took 14 weeks to get a decision back on my application. To be frank, I know it is not because of the “unusually high volume of applications” or “covid” because dozens of people who applied long after me received their decisions before me; some in February, some in March, and some in April. I managed to submit my application on time even though I too had to deal with “covid” and “extreme circumstances” this year. I do not need any sugarcoa
I do not need any sugarcoating, I want a real answer as to why I was continually passed over while everyone else heard back. Also, I would like to inform you that I will be withdrawing my application, as I do not have any desire to attend an institution that so blatantly disrespected my time and gave me false hope.
this will get you removed from the waitlist
Not even close to what I would be making as a lawyer and I do ish. I think it’s contributed a lot to my mental health and I’ve been dying to leave due to starting school in august so
I feel like I’ve been miserable since the start of the year but so has everyone else I guess. Everyone else is overworked too. Maybe defer and have the ability to pay more hahaha. Idk maybe I’m just on a high from the news and tomorrow will come to my senses
it's definitely something to think about! if you have an offer you're excited about, then you might be happier starting school sooner. If you're thinking about R&R then it's just more money for another year
@Law101: i mean if you’re that one person it’ll be enough lol. The whole pwl was never going to get in, we just have a better chance.
@WetClammyCoyote: Yeah, I think its definitely something to be excited about, but I always like to wait at least 24 hours before I make a big decision so I don't do things in the heat of the moment
@burnercell: true, but isn't finding out they are already full kinda lessen your chances. that means that like with Upenn they went through the list once so no need to add anyone except for part-time
Bout to do this Northwestern interview late as ****, manifest for me lads
@PierPissolini: good luck! Just did mine a few days ago
