I would guess Friday this week as well honestly, fingers crossed!
Did they tell you about the wave this week when you called / emailed them?
she give an exact date, but said decision would start mid-november and continue from there.
Ah! I know last year it was right before thanksgiving so Im hoping to here sooner than that even though Thanksgiving is next week lol
Ugh I know i'm assuming and hoping that for most Florida schools if we applied in September we should hear back by late this week or Monday/Tuesday of next week to get us out the way before the holiday break. I am so eager to hear back from a school, any school lol
My nova portal is now showing a balance due section!
yes, same. Balance due says $0.00
Should be a good sign, looks like we’re about to get a decision
I wonder if the decision will come out today or if we have to wait until tomorrow or so
I hope today 😭 I just want decisions at this point
hahaha right, I completely agree!
Did anyone else balance line now disappear completely again?!
Yeah, I think it’s just a glitch with their system 😭
oh so all that stuff appearing was a glitch you think :(, hopefully we do hear back from them soon though...
if they don't give admissions out tomorrow then I was told the wrong information :(, this waiting game is brutal!
It is!
Status changed today!
I got an email that said decision will be out today!
I just got an email about financial aid!
I got a financial aid email, but nothing about decision being out today 😭
Has anyone heard anything yet today?
Nope still haven’t heard anything from them, hopefully tomorrow!!
anyone hear anything???
They made a decision on me this morning, but I have not received an email or anything as to what that decision is 😂 very anxious, it’s been about 7 hours sense that decision was made
omfg stressed my date changed to 11/21 but instead of UR it says file is with committee ????? wtf does that mean 😭😭
They made a decision on me yesterday but said they won’t be sending out emails until after thanksgiving break
Okay the accepted me, scholarship is relatively small considering the price of the school, I know my stats aren’t stellar but that would be a ton debt to get into…
i feel that, was hoping for more considering i’m well above
medians but that’s okay! an A is better than nothing i’ll take it
