@HasACoffeeProblem: what’re your stats? November applicant here/super splitter

@ElfyElfLikeBoy: im in the table below ~2.8/170
@MoogleTub: when did you get scholly info? the email said 3-4 weeks but that is after my deposit deadline
@HasACoffeeProblem: I got my acceptance 3/8 and my scholarship info 3/10. I did immediately pay my seat deposit, don't know if that mattered.
@MoogleTub: Thanks!
Hey guys! Is there a discord or anything for people that accepted their seat in the class?
@ExuberantOceanicPanda: I was also wondering and a few others have asked, but looks like there isn't one atm. In the welcome email they send you there's an accepted students site that will lead you to a Facebook page for the 2026 class. That's all I've seen so far.
Has anyone reached out to the admissions office to check on their application status? Or is that a bad idea?
has anyone heard from osu?
@ElfyElfLikeBoy: I tried it goes straight to voicemail
I got a waitlist
Withdrew just now, deadline was today and they never got back to me about some details of my scholarship. Sent 2 emails over 2 weeks with the last one asking for a deadline extension. GL to all of you!
Anyone feeling ghosted by OSU? Applied Jan, its 4.12 and nothing
I applied in early December and have not heard back sadly
If you do reach out to the admissions office, ensure you are very friendly, polite, respectful!!!
I also am feeling ghosted by OSU lol
granted, i applied much more recently
Final deadline for seat deposits is today!
@MoogleTub: Not sure if you've seen it anywhere, but there is a discord now.
@ExuberantOceanicPanda: Oh no I haven't! Can you somehow send me the link or tell me where I can find it?
Got my WL today
For people that got in and people that accepted, did OSU ever send any gifts in the mail?
Nope, they don't send anything. If you went to one of the admitted students day they gave you a cup lol
@MoogleTub: Are you in the Facebook group?
@ExuberantOceanicPanda: I didn't join it no. I'm guessing that's where the discord link is huh
Anybody else still waiting for a decision lol
July 14th is the deadline for the final enrollment confirmation! So I would assume people would start being taken off the WL at that point.
