@SmoothDetailedBunny: like 3 days when they waitlisted me and then just over a week with the acceptance letter
has anybody who applied summer heard back yet?
anyone know how difficult it is to negotiate scholarship with baylor?
it took me a week to get my letter in the mail
Ugggh I can't wait to get my decision from Baylor. I would love to go back to my undergrad.
it took exactly 1 month to hear back
just got waitlisted for fall and possibly accepted for summer?
will they send an email with decision? or you have to wait for mail?
they will send an email that says a decision has been rendered, and then you can call and ask for your decision or wait for it to come in the mail
I just got off the waitlist for Fall. That was fast. Didnt think they would be reviewing the waitlist yet
Did they email you your acceptance? @nothingbutgreen or was it the decision render email and you called?
Decision rendered and i called
When they waitlisted me prior, that status just showed on my portal as waitlist
Got the same email, but after business hours. Will be calling back the number with hopefully good news. I did the optional WL interview, so I'm hopeful to find out tmr.
I called at 8pm EST and they answered
In the past 20 hours I've called them 2 times and haven't gotten a response. I've been at work all day and feel sick to my stomach that I haven't gotten an answer abt the email yet..
You are probably in. I can't see them making you call to get a rejection
Plus we both did the interview and got notified at the same time and they let me in. I think you are in
Just got invited to an admitted students dinner in DC. So they do this in most popular arts?
