My Decisions + Reflection
I used this site starting last year, and have pretty much wrapped up with decisions and commitment. This site gave me useful knowledge about how to write essays properly and how to apply to college! Generally speaking.
I was admitted to UMich, UCSD (w/ Chancellor's), UC Irvine (Honors), UC Davis, UCSB, SJSU, Cal Poly SLO, Pitt, CO Mines
Waitlisted: UCLA, Northeastern, Georgia Tech
Rejected: Stanford, MIT, WASHU, UC Berkeley
for Computer Engineering/EECS.
Anyways, I'm very glad for the advice and services I got here, and am excited to be attending UCSD this fall to do Computer Engineering & Linguistics.
UPDATE: waitlisted Tufts and Duke as well
So happy for you! UCSD is a great school.
Congrats on the acceptances! How did you ultimately decide on UCSD?
Getting the Chancellor's Scholarship was honestly a huge plus ($5000/year is a lot) + guaranteed housing! UMich I also got a scholarship worth like $20K (I don't even remember) but it just didn't make sense financially. Combined with the strong engineering program and strong resources for a student like me, it was a perfect fit.
Congratulations! Those are such amazing schools. If you don't mind me asking, what was your chance ranges for UCSD, UCLA, and Northeastern?
UCSD was target 70-80% chance
UCLA was hard target (38-46% chance)
Northeastern was target (71-82% chance, but note Northeastern I showed no demonstrated interest)
Congratulations!! These are all amazing schools, and you must've worked incredibly hard :)
oh still waiting on Duke, Tufts, and Cornell too, but UCSD is my top choice over those 3 at this point
got waitlisted at all 3 haha
Congratulations! Thanks for sharing.
If you don’t mind me asking what was your chance range for UC Berkeley and Georgia tech from CV.
Berkeley was a Hard Target (34-45% chance)
Georgia Tech was a Hard Target (33-44% chance)
I got rejected from Berkeley likely because their acceptance rate for Electrical Engineering & Computer Science is around 3%... a lot of people from my school with similar stats got into Berkeley for other majors.
Thanks for sharing. You got a good scholarship for UCSD and it is a good school.
