Bad sign that no one seemed to get a feeler yesterday or just a holiday weekend aberration?
im not sure when @jtwilson1214 left the message, but seemed like there were some feelers sent out last friday
has anyone received a response at this point?
i have received no information from nw about the waitlist and have not received a feeler email. Should I give up hope?
anyone heard a WL update?
y’all get that waitlist update?
do you think they cut people from the waitlist
My guess would be they cut based only on the waitlist interview. Was it complete, yes or no?
I stayed on the waitlist today and never submitted WL Interview. I did the initial one though.
anyone hear anything from the waitlist yet since the form?
nope :(
I just sent another LOCI
when’d you send your last one?
Mid-June I think
Or start of July
Oh I guess it was in May
Just got a feeler - anyone else?
Lmao literally on day 1 of orientatino
I did too. not sure i can justify moving at this point since its so close to classes
@HeadyPunyFlamingo: when did you get a feeler?
A heads up to those still hoping: I received an offer and just withdrew my application, so there is probably at least one spot left
@SimonTWill: they sent you a feeler prior to offering admission correct? what was your response to the feeler if you don’t mind me asking
@InsidiousCurvyCentipede: Hey so I responded emphatically to the feeler, which came Monday evening. I got the offer Tuesday evening, and had til 12:00PM CT today to make a call (Wednesday)
@SimonTWill: It’s weird because I received that same feeler days before you but still
