i think all we’re getting is the trickle wave today
This school is apprently GPA driven.... someone got in with a 153. That is INSANE. Im thinking im getting an R with how long my response is taking. It seems they are only sending As out and looking for rentention rates befoere they get to the weaker applicants. Thats the only thing that makes sense with how long this is taking
