    Decisions will come out on March 25, at around 5ish. That's 16 days from now. Regents scholars already know their decisions, though.

    decisions have already been released for people invited for regents interviews. i would post my stats but i don't want to be the first one hahah
  • LeftistHominidLeftistHominid Registered User Posts: 3,803 Senior Member
    I must agree, this is a tad bit too early.

    Also your post neglects spring admits. Waitlists are limited to about 200 people and they are listed, but spring admits make up about 2000 admits each year.

    FYI, White and Caucasian are not ethnic groups. White is a social race, and caucasian is falsely defined biological race.

    Irish American or Taiwanese American would be examples of ethnicities, but white definitely is not one
  • lolololollolololol Registered User Posts: 134 Junior Member
    Regents is decided by gpa/test score numbers alone. EC's/essays don't mean anything to them.
  • aznjunioraznjunior Registered User Posts: 761 Member
    are you sure gpa/test scores? I have perfect test scores and gpa and didn't get an invite.
