The wait is killing me. I wish we could call and ask when (if even) they plan to remove people
this is literally taking forever
haven’t heard anything
Hey guys- sorry for the stressful time for you all. I am applying to Barnard this fall and I was wondering if some of you all accepted off the waitlist or anyone who applied would be willing to share their stats. I will have around a 4.25 GPA (weighted) when I apply and I have a 34 on the ACT. I have fallen in love with the school, but I am afraid my stats are not enough.
hi! I was waitlisted and then rejected (although barnard’s waitlist is need-aware and my family is low-income and applied for aid), so i’m not sure how much help this will be, but I applied with a 4.8 W / 4.1 UW GPA, 1540 SAT, and 10 AP classes with 6 passing scores (the other 4 AP’s i took this year). i have a few extracurriculars but i mainly just work at my job, and i think my essays were pretty strong. i didn’t get into barnard, but i somehow got into princeton. the admissions process is so weird, don’t stress yourself out, and just try your best and demonstrate a strong interest in your top schools on your apps. I think the fact that you’re already looking at schools and preparing your application is a good sign! just spend a lot of time on your applications and be ambitious with where you apply!! whatever happens, you’ll be fine
They could be waiting for Spring grade reports!
There is a recent conversation available on YouTube with admissions from Barnard and Stanford by the consulting group Expert Admissions.
In this presentation, they discuss their current waitlist - to paraphrase: Barnard went early, reiterated the value of submitting your LOCI quickly and sounds done with the exception of possible summer withdrawals. Similar comments from the Stanford AO too.
I am unsure why schools do not openly communicate this with students on the list. Recommend listening to this presentation or at least fast forwarding to hear about the waitlist.
Yeah sounds like Barnard is full and have been since May 1st they probably won’t be taking any more students. I wish they would have just told us earlier
