Has anyone been rejected/waitlisted/deferred to UIUC with a 3.8w GPA, top 15% rank, and 1250 SAT or know anyone who has? If so, please post stats and major you applied for. THanks.

    hmmmm mine is just about that.
    3.9 GPA
    top 12%
    ACT 32
    Applied for business, said that they were "FULL", so they offered me economics and said I could trasnfer in give or take 2 years. I cursed them to Hades but decided oh why not and accepted.

    I had a 3.9w (3.4uw) and a 31 ACT. Applied to b-school in October, told me they were full in February. Didn't even offer me admission to LAS, just wait-list, which I begrudgingly accepted. However, it looks like my backup (Indiana) has a better b-school, and add that to the fact that they're giving me money, and there's almost no way in hell I'll go should they accept me come June

    Does it matter when you apply as long as its before the priority deadline? Like will it make a difference if someone applied early October vs. someone who applied early November? ....They both applied before November 15.
  • zippozippo Posts: 218Registered User Junior Member
    It seems like yes, because I know someone who applied September, got in, and didn't have as good of stats
  • mga120mga120 Posts: 12. New Member
    Yes, I got rejected. Very suprising though, I got into Indiana and Purdue. I don't want to attend Illinois. Anyways, my stats :

    GPA 3.8 UW, 4.0 W
    1410, 2090
    Good Recs, Good Essays
    Founder of a Club and Held 3 jobs during high school
    Sister went there and graduated with honors...

    Don't know what happened, sorry to scare you less qualified students, but this is probably just a fluke.

    This was my top choice also, and I was very disappointed to get rejected.

    GPA 3.9UW
    SATS 1430/2140
    Recs: Amazing
    Essays: Good
    Junior State of America Chapter Founder, Mayor, etc.
    Double Legacy

    This school's pretty tough

    Wow, I have worse stats then anyone here and was accepted into business. Guess applying early actually works here.

    wow, mga120 and jmnpd, wut schools in uiuc did you apply too? you guys got very competitive stats. I had worse stats with a 1420(m+v) SAT and 3.1 UW gpa but got into engineering and applied after priority date. Weird.
  • jmnpbjmnpb Posts: 28Registered User New Member
    I applied early for engineering, deferred then rejected RD. It's strange, because my essay shows that UIUC is my top choice.
  • lil_killer129lil_killer129 Posts: 4,706Registered User Senior Member
    mga120 and jmnpd, when did you apply? Do you remember approximate date? I am getting scared...
  • jmnpbjmnpb Posts: 28Registered User New Member
    I think sometime in mid november, not sure
  • lil_killer129lil_killer129 Posts: 4,706Registered User Senior Member
    That is so sad. I feel sorry for your rejection...:(. Where are you headed now?
  • tennisfan88tennisfan88 Posts: 757Registered User Member
    Ok, I think it's safe to say UIUC has some really messed up admissions policies. Cause half the stuff they do obviously doesn't make sense. Rejecting students who applied before the priority deadline, accepting students w/ low stats, accepting students w/ lower stats WHO APPLIED AFTER PRIORITY DEADLINE. Jeezee.... I think they need a new dean of admissions.
  • mga120mga120 Posts: 12. New Member
    ya its absolutely ridiculous. Applied Jan 2.

    Good luck everybody else
  • jmnpbjmnpb Posts: 28Registered User New Member
    lil_killer129, I am headed to local CC here in Illinois now with the hope of transferring to UIUC. It was my #1, and I didn't apply anywhere else.

    tennisfan88, I agree, I'm actually going to Urbana to attempt to appeal my decision.
