    Why nervous?? With those acceptances, likely letters and calls in hand, I wouldn't be worrying about the rest!!
  • GoBears2023GoBears2023 Forum Champion Summer Programs Posts: 554 Forum Champion
    Mostly MIT and UCLA. @HiToWaMom

    @GoBears2023 will the recent college admissions scandal affect your decision in any way? Just curious....
  • hgrad2010hgrad2010 Registered User Posts: 131 Junior Member
    Eh just go to Harvard and call it a day.
  • hs2020kidhs2020kid Registered User Posts: 79 Junior Member
    @GoBears2023 ...happy Pi day...hope you got good news from MIT (not that it matter...you already have great admits including Stanford)
  • HiToWaMomHiToWaMom Registered User Posts: 1,314 Senior Member
    Which school do you want to go the most? (If you don't have to worry about the finance)

    Is it correct that you are waiting for just UCLA and UCSD... and the financial packages from all of the colleges that admitted you? (the latter may be the most important remaining thing)

    @ucbalumnus

    No, I am still waiting for UPenn, Brown, and Princeton on Ivy Day. I am also waiting on CMU.

    Forgot to do my usual update:
    Accepted: USC (Scholarship for trustee's), Yale (likely call), Purdue, UIUC, UC Berkeley (Regent's and Chancellor's), Harvard (likely letter), Stanford (likely letter), UC Davis (Regent's), UCI, UCSB, UCSC
    Deferred:
    Waitlisted: UMich, Northeastern, MIT
    Rejected: Cornell, UDub, GaTech



    I am pretty sad about MIT. I thought I would be admitted and I wasn't. I really fell hard for their CS program and the people there were some of the smartest people I have ever met. However, I won't be losing sleep over it and I was happy to have at least been considered for a spot in their Class of 2023.


    @3scoutsmom

    Yes, the scandal has been at the back of my mind for the entire day. I don't know how it will affect my college decision. In case anyone is curious, here's my ranking of the colleges I've accepted to:

    1. Stanford / Harvard (really don't know how I'm going to decide ... both are super awesome schools)
    2. UC Berkeley (Assuming I get Regent's, but overall it is much cheaper and has the #1 CS Program in the US)
    3. Yale (I mean, it's Yale?)
    4. USC (Assuming I get the scholarship offer, it would be affordable and I wouldn't have to work)
    5. UIUC (Really strong CS program, OOS FA though is meh)
    6. UCSB (It's the next highest UC and it is pretty nice. May be replaced by UCSD tmr)
    7. Purdue (my first acceptance, I love you forever bb)
    8. UCI (Pretty strong CS + Game Development major, I would be happy going here)
    9. UC Davis (Cows go MOOOOOOOOOOOOO)
    10. UCSC (Great Game Development major but not the type of atmosphere I like)

    @GoBears2023 I assume, based on your applications, that you live in California. Have you factored the cost of transportation into your decision?

    Rejected at UDub Honors?
  • GoBears2023GoBears2023 Forum Champion Summer Programs Posts: 554 Forum Champion
    @lkg4answers
    Yes, I have thought about transportation costs.

    UPDATE:

    Scored a 11 on the AIME I. Will be most likely qualifying for the USAMO this year. I have started practicing for the USAMO and hopefully make MOP.
