@Griff: I actuslly sent a LOCI and next day got the waitlist. So now Im just gonna hold out and see what happens.
@LawVenomousWizard: good luck, If you haven't taken a tour yet maybe trying to schedule one and show that added interest.
found out that they essentially lost my application and i applied all the way bak in November. i had to call back multiple times for it to be reviewed and they offered me a WL. i sent back a rejection letter to their wl offer lol
That’s surprising you got WL with your stats, I thought for sure you’d get in being above median.
@Iamanole: I kind of felt like thats what they did to me. Didnt hear a word, they wouldnt return calls, wouldnt return emails. I finally emailed the dean of admissions directly and asked if they lost my app and sent a loci the next day then got the WL the following day.
they rejected me 3 months after i withdrew my app what a joke
@shriggz.... are you attending UofA?
Anybody on here for this year's cycle? I got a date change and am excited!
kind crazy they have not done an acceptance wave yet
nvm, just got the A
I haven't had any date changes and I applied two months ago... is this everyone or just me??
has anyone who has been accepted gotten any scholarship info/emails?
not yet
just got scholly stuff. They offered my chump change
yeah just got scholarship but not much as well
Ditto for me. Scholly offer was not as high as I anticipated
aggressively low scholarship offer, below their 25th percentile grant on their 509 :/
Probably will withdraw bc of scholly. Anyone have any luck with negotiations?
i heard they don't negotiate. how long did it take to hear back?? I've been on review for 2 months going on 3
4 days from sent to rejected. That's gotta be a record... I feel like they didn't even read my application with that speed.... My app never even updated status to under review i was rejected so quick..... Kinda depressing with no other decisions made yet and as I wait on 4 other schools to make decisions....
How long after acceptance do you hear about scholarship offers?
I heard back within 24 hours. $2,000 a year.
Thanks. Got accepted over a week ago and haven’t heard anything on $$$ so pretty confused
I would say that if you haven't heard anything about scholarships yet, you might not get any. I could very well be wrong, I just think it highly unlikely consider their turnaround time
just got rejected, am honestly surprised, wrote a why arkansas and everything. kinda sad
i got accepted and didn't hear about a scholarship until a few days later. might be worth to call if you need to!
@realslimshady: Your ONU....online program?
For those of you who have paid a seat deposit, have you started receiving information about the fall yet? Other than my receipt, I haven't received anything.
I haven’t heard anything yet either, @headlongflight
