Has anyone contacted UIUC?

Yes, i know that they've already sent acceptances out and i've been waitlisted. Not sure when I'll hear back but was told hopefully before spring break. It really depends on when students let them know their decisions.

Yes.

With some of the incredible schools you have, I think you certainly can decline others.

Definitely!  I've declined WashU and Rochester -- I'm CP and Methods if that information will help anyone. But the imposter in me still says " Who are you to decline ?"

Dear Mr.,

It is with delight I inform you,

The submitted application is under review.

Acceptance it is not,

As you may have first thought.

In fact,

Decision will be due,

In a month or two.

But we may place you on a waitlist,

Just to see if we are the school,

You really wanted to go to.

Haiku Poem:

Current Yale Grad here.

Yesterday we got invites

To host new admits.

 

At April visits

For the prospective students

So, decisions soon?

 

I think you can take it that decisions are made and coming out soon. Yale does personal notifications from usually POI. Usually email. Some by phone.

Best of luck see some of you soon.

Unfortunately

Unfortunately, we cannot... Unfortunately
Are unable to recommend... 
We attract the best: brighter, younger things. 
We cannot extend
An invitation to you, unfortunately. 

Many thousands of qualified applicants — 
And then there’s you.
What’s a committee to do? 
Dossiers on dossiers, friends of friends
Commend them to us in the millions:
The quickest, steeliest, wiliest applicants you’ve ever seen, 
Sharp-elbowed and ravenous.
They’ve got the stuff, and what it takes. 
But not you.
We can’t say yes, and them’s the brakes. 
Somewhere else you’d do — 
Just not with us. Unfortunately.

Hi all. Thanks for being so great through this process. I was fortunate enough to be accepted at UNC-Chapel Hill (Theory) early on in the process. I accepted their offer this morning. I am still haven't heard from Georgetown, Notre Dame, Chicago (presumed reject), or Northwestern (presumed reject). If accepted at any of those places, I'll decline. That's just an FYI for people who like to know their probability went up by the subtraction of a single n. 

Anyone who is going to the UNC prospective student weekend, feel free to message me. And, especially feel free if you're definitely going to UNC.

Peace.

NOTE: I'm trying to notify those schools that I am withdrawing my application. Could take a bit though. 

UPDATE: Now withdrawn from the Notre Dame and Georgetown admissions pools.
