you can get rejected or waitlisted before the 15th. just not accepted before.
well, for sure if you interviewed at Tulane. not too sure about the other schools.Originally posted by Jadeite
So basically for all the places that have the 3-4 weeks surpassed and we haven't sent word..... that means it's a good chance they're going to give acceptances? Well, even so I don't think I want to get my hopes up! ::runs off to study biochemistry to keep her hopes way down...::
And I'm pulling for you too, Sweet Tea!Originally posted by Sweet Tea
Woots, I'm in the same boat. You're not helping my anxiety level any by reminding me that a decision might have already been made.
All the same, I'm pulling for ya!
When I was there Oct. 4th they said it should take ~ 4 weeks. But talking to some of the current students there, some said they were notified in less time (2-3 weeks). In any case, the committee there seems to be on top of things.Originally posted by mws99
I have an interview at UMich Friday, when do you guys think the earliest I could hear from them could be? I'm sure they won't make a decision by the 15th, that seems a little rushed. But I would be so happy if I could find out within a couple weeks, when I began scheduling my other interviews, I do not want to spend the money to go to those.
Seems to me they interview what they consider the top of their applicant pool first, so you'd have a higher chance of being accepted?Originally posted by chopsuey
i always wonder if you have a higher chance of getting waitlisted now since they don't know what else is going to be coming in....i guess it's better than rejection, huh?

I heard that some schools (Umich, UChicago) call admitted students on the 15th.....
