Official Barnard Regular Decision Class of 2017 Thread

edited May 2013 in Barnard College
I saw that there was an Official Barnard ED Thread, so I decided to make one for all of those who are applying regular decision (or have already applied. Today is the deadline).

Barnard is my first choice school, but I didn't apply early decision because I was worried about the financial aid as well as tying myself down to one school, which I now realize was stupid of me, but oh well.

So what about you guys? Was Barnard your first-choice school or just one down the list?

    I decided to apply RD because I honestly didn't knwo where I waned to go, but know I'm thinking maybe I should have applied ED. oh well. no use comtemplating it now.

    on another note, the supplements for Barnard are killer.

    hey guys! I'm applying RD too, and also wished I applied ED. It's definitely my first choice. I just wasn't ready at the time.
    I love this school like crazy. and yeah, I spent FOREVER on those supplements.

    @colleen2017
    i took forever too! lol
    ahhh i wonder when the results are coming out :/
  • chippuchippu Posts: 20Registered User New Member
    It stresses me out a little that the official RD thread exists already ;;;;
    omgggg I wish I applied ED too. and the supplements were a lot of work indeed....
    out of curiosity, who did everyone end up talking about for the conversation with a woman prompt? I picked Sylvia Plath because I love her poetry!
  • kendrickgirlkendrickgirl Posts: 124Registered User Junior Member
    this is crazy. just finished my supplements last night. good luck guys.
    there were so many essays to write.
    i chose anna wintour. :)

    I've been waiting for this thread to start up! And I wished I applied ED too, but I need to compare financial aid packages and I don't think I was ready at that time to apply ED anywhere. But I LOVE Barnard. And yes, so many supplements.

    @chippu- I love Sylvia Plath! I read The Bell Jar this year and we read one of her poems in my english class which lead to me looking for more of her poems to read lol. I really fell in love with poetry this year.

    @kendrickgirl- That's so awesome that you wrote about Anna Wintour! I talked about Vogue and Grace Coddington in my common app essay. Speaking of Grace, I got her book for Christmas this year and it's great so far.

    I wrote about Robin Givhan for my conversation with a woman prompt. She's the first fashion writer to win a Pulitzer Prize.
  • kbhattkbhatt Posts: 27Registered User New Member
    Did anyone get a confirmation from Barnard yet? Or do they even do that?
  • chippuchippu Posts: 20Registered User New Member
    @berries123: Damn, fashion writer who won the Pulitzer? sounds hella impressive. I'm happy you got into poetry! It's such a wonderful...form of expression.

    @kbhatt: Yeah, they send out an application tracking portal. You get it approx. a week after you submit part one.
  • chillychillychillychilly Posts: 81Registered User Junior Member
    when do we find out about the notification date?
  • kendrickgirlkendrickgirl Posts: 124Registered User Junior Member
    ahh grace coddington! I love her! She's so awesome.
    Yay women power.
    I think we find out late march, early april?
  • chillychillychillychilly Posts: 81Registered User Junior Member
    :( how am i gonna wait for four months :/
  • theforestagaintheforestagain Posts: 61Registered User Junior Member
    I applied RD because of finances (I'm upper middle class technically, but my parents probably can't pay 60k a year lol). Barnard is my first choice, but I also got into my state school (University of Michigan) which I would be really happy to attend, so it's a good fallback.

    For my conversation with a woman essay, I wrote about my grandmother who died when I was 5. I never really knew her, but she overcame a lot of hardship in her life and was a huge feminist. I'm a little bit scared because she's not exactly famous or fictional, but I think it'll be okay!

    Good luck everyone :)

    Also, did anyone apply to other women's schools? I applied to Wellesley and Smith.
