Let's talk about decisions: Denied

Denied students can use this entry to talk.

I'm so sorry this sort of entry is needed. I hope you all can look at your options and get excited about one of your other schools. If your immediate reaction is "I'll transfer", don't let that plan keep you from getting involved in campus life at the school you choose. I think many students come to think of their next choice as "home" and can't imagine leaving it after a little while.

Remember that this decision is probably about our numbers. We had over 28,000 applications this year for a first year class of about 3,400. I'll leave you until tomorrow, when I'll be back to answer questions.

Please be polite and respectful of others when posting.
