    Female, private school, TX
    ACT 32; 3.92 UW; 9 APs
    Main ECs: student gov prez, env/social outreach club prez, 4 years all-state swimming (NOT swimming in college), swim team captain, 1st place TX state private school art competition (submitted portfolio with app)
    Other schools considering: Whitman (WA); Rhoades (TN); Emory (GA)
    Waitlisted: Middlebury; Wesleyan
    Rejected: Cornell, Tufts, Swarthmore
    Leaning toward Whitman (full scholarship + parents alma mater) or Colgate (v. small 'pat on the back' aid); willing to reconsider if I come off the waitlist at Middlebury or Wesleyan. Middlebury waitlist offers are apparently scarce, but Wesleyan is annually 50-55% offered by early June.
    * More than happy to humbly accept at any of the above schools. Not hung up on rep or ranking. I think it's mostly BS promoted by the schools to boost online rep/ranking and the endowment (and cater to over-competitive parents) :( ... I will say the Colgate YES packet is really well done, very enticing, using a quote from one the rec letters is clever and adds a personal touch.

    International student who has still not not received an acceptance packet which is disappointing as all other schools have sent one and I would love to receive one from Colgate soon as well :(

    Why remain disappointed out of lack of information? Contact the Office of Admission and ask for resolultion.

    Good luck with your college search!

    did you get an email saying you were accepted, sb0110??
  • slimmyslimmy Registered User Posts: 73 Junior Member
    really doesn't get more frustrating that all the above.
    I'm applying next year to Colgate and everyone posting the single word, "Rejected" with zero information about stats.
    How does it even benefit anything at all to write that? It's more effort for you to start typing the word 'rejected' than to sit there and just watch youtube or something. Why waste your time? If your going to write accepted or rejected atleast offer up a little help with a gpa or sat for others to get an idea. Otherwise it's just a nonsensical word attached to a fictitious name.
