Chances at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC)

<p>anyone know what "Committee Review" means?</p>

<p>yeah, it means that they'll look at your entire application, which also means that u didn't qualify for the automatic-in system, mine showed "deferred manual review" and couple of days ago, it shows that i'm admitted. so.. don't worry</p>

<p>thanks, I am a prospective transfer student with less than 60 credit hours, so no I didn't automatically qualify for admission. I am trying to wait paitently and very much hoping for the best!</p>

<p>ok so i got put on the waiting list.... anyone know if i have a chance of still getting accepted?</p>

<p>well, it depends, what are your STATs? what college/major r u applying for? i'm really surprised that they put you on waitlist for regular admission. anyway, good luck though :)</p>

<p>my stats are at the beginning of this thread</p>

<p>where else did you apply?</p>

<p>depaul (got in)
indiana university (got in)
loyola university-chicago (got in)
university of illinois in chicago (got in)
miami university- ohio (still waiting)</p>

<p>Deerfield is a far cry from being one of the top schools in the area! IMSA, NT, and WY (maybe Jones, too) are the top schools.</p>

<p>what does "bump" mean?</p>

<p>Who told you that Deefield was a good school, let alone a "great school"? I mean it doesn't really matter but, trust me, I'm from Illinois too... Deerfield is so far off the radar screen...</p>

<p>But anyway, I'm sorry to hear about your dad... My father passed right before freshman year. It greatly affected my grades. I wrote my college essays about the experience. My teachers/counselors also aknowleged the fact in their letters of recommendation. I was accepted in all the schools I applied, but chose DePaul because they offered the most money and I didn't want to burden my mother. Anyway, continue...</p>

<p>You're IN man. I'm really sorry about your father's loss but if you mention that in our app, the admissions officer will surel understand!
Best of luck =)</p>
