ahh i get your question now, i was under review.
SO if anyone gets off the waitlist let me know 3/25
Anyone still under review and stressing out
can you still get a scholarship if youre waitlisted and then offered a spot?
I don't think tbh so they have this scholarship that unless you're offered admission before 4/1 then you are eligible but if it's after you're not eligible maybe some scholarship but not a lot
how likely is it to get off the waitlist here? I know the t14s are basically impossible. Was waitlisted at four. But what about penn state law if at the medians. I feel like some of the waitlist are just soft rejections. I was waitlisted at both penn state schools
I feel like it's extremely low i've been asking them and they just told me they're not sure if they're gonna even have spots
anyone get off the WL today some people did
I got off the waitlist today. offered $18k/year scholarship
