If a student chooses to accept a place on the priority waiting list, can they still submit a deposit to another school and choose to go to that other university even if accepted by CMU?

We recommend that you submit a deposit to another school to secure your place in a freshman class, but, if accepted of the Priority Waiting List, we expect you to attend Carnegie Mellon.

Will you be posting the # of applicants on the priority waiting list for each college after tonight's deadline?

We will not be posting the number of applicants who are on the Waiting Lists. 

What’s Carnival? Buggy

Sweepstakes, also known as Buggy, is a competition where Greek and independent organizations race with their buggies, small, low, aerodynamic vehicles, powered only by gravity and human pushers. At its fastest, a buggy can reach speeds up to 35 miles per hour.

And yes - there’s a girl in there!

You can catch the Sweepstakes Races on Friday and Saturday mornings, with Friday morning being the Preliminary Sweepstake Races from 8am to noon, the Exhibition Races at 8am on Saturday, and the Sweepstakes Final Races from 9am to noon on Saturday!

What’s Carnival? Booth

Booth is one of the biggest showpieces of Spring Carnival. Student organizations build multi-story structures around our annual theme (2014: Best of the Best), hosting interactive games and elaborate decorations. The booths will be placed on Midway, which is located in the Morewood Gardens Parking Lot.

Admission is free to view these booths.

There are four different categories for competition in booth, including Sorority, Fraternity, Independent, and Blitz (smaller) booths. As well, there are non-competing booths that sell food: Alpha Phi Omega’s concession stand and Kappa Sigma’s Brocery Store. You can see a list of the themes and categories here

Keep an eye on Midway and the students who are building with the live webcam!

Any advice you can give a junior who was utterly shocked when a highly regarded school like CMU sent them info? Is this info sent to just anyone or am I apart of a select few in my area ( impoverished, low income) because I'm high achieving?

Universities are able to purchase your names if you take any standardized tests.
