my application was under review since 1/09 then it changed yesterday and the status date says 2/28 but its still in review. Did anyone else have this happen to them?
@ChemicalCurvedBanshee: yes i went UR on 1/09 and then the status dated chanfe to like 2/15 but i still havent heard!
Almost gave up on Case Western (part-time), but received an A tonight! Email/letter dated March 14th, but got it at 10pm on Mar 15t.
@dcrazysmooth: congrats!!!! I am also waiting to hear back from them. Part-time program applicant! Do you mind sharing when you applied? Thank you!
Sent on Jan 18th, accepted 14 Mar. Dean called me this morning to congratulate me and said their system has been slow. Seat deposit is due on 1 April, so I told her she only gave me 2 weeks to decide! Good luck!
Thank you so much for sharing!!!
I am also waiting to hear from Case Western's part time program; congratulations!
Good luck to you both! I will say that the scholarship was pretty good 50%+ and the flexibility in curriculum and workload really appealed to me as a current FTE. Waiting for the official acceptance/info via mail, but I hope you hear soon! Like I said, April 1 is when the seat deposit is due, so there's not too much time left. Also, she expects the cohort to be high-20s or low-30s in number so I think the part-time program is going to be pretty competitive.
Wow 50% ! That’s awesome! Congrats! Mine had been under review from 2/6 and i am still waiting. Since the deposit deadline is approaching as you said, i believe they will let me know soon.. @dcrazysmooth if you don’t mind, may I ask your stat? 50% of tution sounds really cool!
To be precise, they gave me ~$1600 per credit hour and the tuition price per credit hour is ~$2600, so it's a bit more than 50%. I'm at 3.1 GPA and 160, but I'm non-trad, graduated undergrad in 1997, joined the Army after college and retired last year. Also got an MA and MBA while in the Army, so I'm not the typical applicant.
That's awesome! I'm an Air Force veteran with an MA, so I hope they decide I'm at least half as competitive as you.
Wow! Excellent! Thank you for sharing!
Got my A today! Wooo!
Congrats! Did they update the status before you received an email?
Sorry to say but I'm not sure. Got the email and hadn't checked my status in a while.
@GiddyBittenSwan: congrats!! can I ask when you submitted your app
Yay! Got my acceptance today with $$$
