Waitlisted at GW?
Hi everyone! I just got my decision back from GW and I was waitlisted. I am an above average candidate for them and considered it to be my safety. All of my scores are above their ranges and I have a large expanse of extra curricular activities including debate, community service clubs, and a job. I am trying to figure out why I was waitlisted as I was very excited about the prospect of going there if it worked out financially. If anyone has any ideas please let me know! I’m so confused!12 replies
