    My portal is still the same - application, fee, letters of rec, mid year, etc

    Ah yeah, false alarm. After reloading the page a few times the normal checklist is back.

    I have about a 3.7 GPA also. I'm kind of worried it will hurt me in the admissions process. Also, my rank is not good.

    I have a 3.7 GPA. But I'm not double legacy...

    I'm the one who created this group discussion? How is everyone doing? Does anybody think they have a good chance at getting in?

    @I_Love_Stanford I don't think anyone has a good chance, since their acceptance rates are so low, so I guess that's a comforting thought? At this point I've stopped worrying about it since there's nothing more I can do, and I suggest that you do the same. Focus on enjoying second semester and spending time with your friends instead.

    I have not been contacted yet for an alumni interview. I live in one of the largest cities in the U.S, so location and amount of alumni volunteers available should not be an issue. My classmates who've also applied to Yale RD have already been contacted and have already done their alumni interviews.

    I know the alumni interview report deadline is coming up. Should I contact admission and the alumni counsel about my situation? Yale is the only interview I'm waiting on.

    @Georgia101 if it's any consolation, i'm waiting for mine too. I requested UChicago, Duke, Harvard, and Yale interviews and have been contacted for none of them. So if anyone has any suggestions, I totally second that question.

    I was contacted for an interview last week and it was conducted yesterday afternoon. I also live in a fairly large city in the U.S. and the majority of my classmates had their interviews towards the beginning of January. With that being said, my interviewer noted that the deadline for conducting interviews is not until February 15th, and that their selection is based solely on availability in regards to volunteers. I would wait a few more days before panicking; but also keep in mind that they ask applicants not to request an alumni interview as the alum has to be the one that approaches you.

    Any international who got a likey letter ?
  • MCurieMCurie Registered User Posts: 109 Junior Member
    Thanks @camara99 ! I actually just got my Harvard invite to interview, so I guess many of the colleges are still waiting things out- it seems like we just have to hang in there. Thanks again!
  • MCurieMCurie Registered User Posts: 109 Junior Member

  • USUG21USUG21 Registered User Posts: 970 Member
