    @NEPatsGirl‌ - Ya, anyone who has a 3.8+ WGPA and a 1250+ SAT, as well as a good mix of AP's and EC's, can have a very solid (85%+) chance at UMass. (Last year's average was ~3.8 GPA and 1220 (M+R) SAT) This being said, this is only true for going in undecided, and many programs like CS, Business and Engineering are MUCH more selective. Just saying this because too many MA students get temped to take out loans with little gain for schools like WPI.

    I'm dying to hear back from Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, UC Irvine, and Boston University. Those are my top choices, with BMC being my number 1.

    I also applied to all UCs except Merced and Berkeley, but realistically, I think my decisions from UCLA and UCSD are almost certain rejections.

    S accepted to MIT, UT. Waiting for RIce, Duke, WashU, JHU, Harvard, Princeton. Harvard contacted S at HS yesterday for a phone interview. Seemed odd. Anyone heard of this before? We figured alum forgot to contact earlier.

    D accepted 9/9 so far: Willamette, UPS, L&C, ColoCollege, ColoSchMines, Kansas-Honors, Beloit, Gonzaga and in-state flagship safety. Merit awards from $14K to $25K, so big price discounts out of tuition everywhere, but didn't get any of 3 full-ride scholarships competed/considered for. Waiting to hear anything from Rice and Whitman, and to see all financial aid packages (Probably no need aid past Direct loans). A couple frontrunners emerging, and a couple minor surprises about merit aid, but generally quite close to predictions. Anxious to see decision unfold over next month.
