    My D is also deciding between Umich and UVa. We are also vising both campuses in March and hoping for the gut feeling to guide my D. She will be majoring in math/sciences and hopefully taking the the premed track. @Penn95 and others who know: we are concerned about grade deflation. Can you please comment how significant it is and why?

    thank you this was great feedback. The plan is to see what other options he has after April 1 and then sit down narrow it down then go visit them. He is high on Washington University and thoughts on that option?

    If you are taking about Wash U (St. Louis) that would be another outstanding choice. I agree with your game plan about waiting until all the decisions are in and then visiting the top choices.

  • rugby1rugby1 Registered User Posts: 43 Junior Member
    how he got accepted to JHU and wait listed at washu when the admission requirements are higher
  • AlexandreAlexandre Registered User Posts: 24,693 Senior Member
    rugby, WUSTL and JHU have similar admission standards. At that level, the decision is random, to a degree anyway.
  • rugby1rugby1 Registered User Posts: 43 Junior Member
