Waitlisted- Where Else Did You Get In?

<p>I was waitlisted at Columbia today, and was sort of surprised. </p>

<p>I was accepted to MIT and Harvard, but Columbia has always been my top choice. </p>

<p>I think college admissions is such a crapshoot, its ridiculous. </p>

<p>Well, where else did you waitlistee's get in?</p>

<p>In at UPenn- Wharton, Brown, and UC Berkeley. </p>

<p>I'm honestly pretty annoyed that Columbia waitlisted me because I really wanted to go there <em>didn't care so much that Williams did</em>. Ah well.</p>

<p>Waitlisted at Columbia, Harvard, and Stanford.</p>

<p>Probably going to UCLA or UC Berkeley. =]</p>

<p>Waitlisted at Columbia :(</p>

<p>Accepted at Penn, WashU, Rice (yay! I <3 Rice :) ), Hopkins, Carnegie Mellon, Tufts, University of Rochester, UConn</p>

<p>Rejected at Princeton :(</p>

<p>Waitlisted at Duke, Northwestern, Columbia</p>

<p>No colleges accepted me---high school junior</p>


<p>Waitlisted at Columbia, Cornell, MIT and Harvey Mudd</p>

<p>Accepted at Carnegie Mellon</p>

<p>Rejected at Caltech and Stanford.</p>

I was accepted to MIT and Harvard, but Columbia has always been my top choice.


this alum is pleasantly surprised by this sentiment. Best of luck.</p>

<p>weird... Columbia admit here but a Penn reject</p>

<p>I was accepted at NYU and Boston U. =/</p>

<p>waitlisted- columbia</p>

<p>in at brown, princeton, penn, cornell</p>

<p>jaw- in at Princeton, but not Columbia. Strange. </p>

<p>I want to become an admissions officer one day to figure out how they make their decisions.</p>

<p>^actually columbia is not much easier to get into than princeton, if at all. Also admissions isn't formulaic and uniform across schools, there is a substantial amount of 'fit' involved in taking applicants. Often schools take applicants for different reasons.</p>

<p>into: Vassar, Wesleyan, Pomona, Carleton, UC Berkeley, UCLA
rejected: Dartmouth, MIT, Princeton
Wait-listed: Columbia</p>

<p>Waitlisted Columbia, Northwestern and Washu</p>

<p>Accepted at NYU, BC (honors), Lehigh</p>

<p>Acceptedish at Cornell (Guaranteed Transfer)</p>

<p>Rejected Penn</p>

<p>Waitlisted Columbia, in at Vanderbilt, I'm going for the acceptance off the waitlist, I don't think I showed enough passion for the school...Should have applied ED, didn't want to get locked in financially.</p>

<p>xerxes300- same as you with williams and columbia!
Probably going to Rice or UT! :)</p>

<p>waitlisted at columbia but got into Cornell, allegheny and temple. I am going to Cornell, I am not even choosing the waitlist so one less person for you people on it.</p>

<p>My son was waitlisted @ Columbia and Cornell</p>

<p>In at Caltech, Rice, Berkeley, NYU, Brown (and Case Western, but a 67% acceptance rate kind of nullifies this)
Waitlisted at Columbia and Wash U
Rejected at MIT</p>

<p>At least the waiting is finally over. With such crappy financial aid from the others, except for Rice, there isn't a reason not to go to Caltech. These waitlists are needless worries and wastes of enrollment deposits; one more spot on the waitlist for someone who's still interested.</p>

<p>Columbia and Cornell Waitlisted, got into Yale,Duke and Berkeley</p>
