Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
got in! they said we still have time to apply for the scholarship
also does anyone know when ot where to find the fin aid
has anyone heard back from WL recently?
Have not heard back from the WL
I just got in off the WL!
I have not heard from the waitlist and seems as tho there was a wave today ;( not trying to lose hope yet
just got off!!
what are ur stats? also do y'all think there will be a second wave its my dream school
Does anyone know how long it takes to get out student ID to pay the deposit?
I received my email with the deposit information yesterday.
[] KaChan
@Sadcatgladcat: congrats on getting in! Are you gonna attend?
I know I am a stretch...but still no word from waitlist.
@KaChan: thank you! no I'm not, I just withdrew.
Did anyone receive an email today asking for you to confirm that you want to remain on the waitlist? Friday the 14th. Not sure if this is a feeler or not?
I have not gotten one. Will they send them in waves
I'm not sure that it was anything significant.
I have not, but I did send an email to the team letting them know i am still interested on Thursday.
sounds like they are swamped (Bri, assistant dean is out on med leave), so it's taking longer than they thought.
omg thanks for letting us know! imma stay hopeful and send another loci
anyone get the reconfirmation waitlist email today hoping for an a soon
I got the email. I think there will be a few more A's this week/next, and then a huge gap of silence before end of July. From what someone told me, this year has been frustrating because a lot of people are waiting until the literal deadline day before withdrawing, even if they know they will withdraw far sooner. Everyone is waiting on that 1 school's WL, and it's trickling up. On top of that, rumor has it most (if not all) a's since May 1 have not received their merit/need-based aid packages yet, and therefore can't be held to a decision.
I was admitted off the waitlist on 06/01, and financial aid said no money was left, but I submitted a reconsideration anyway.
I also got that reconfirmation email. I was hoping it was going to be an A, my heart skipped when I saw it was from UW haha. Fingers crossed for us all!
Would you guys say that last weeks feeler + today's reconfirmation email should be taken as a positive sign? Or is it likely everyone on the WL got these?
I did not get a reconfirmation email last week but I got the email today say my confirmation on the email remains. UDUB is my top school so I hope its a good sign
@mamabigbucks: makes sense. maybe that's been a big holdup, telling people there isn't any money and giving people a chance. here's hoping to some news for everyone ahead of the 4th.
Hump day and no movement yet it seems... Manifesting tomorrow!
is there some sort of admitted students discord for uw
7/21 - putting date for anyone coming back later. reached out again, no movement, no timeline for news. Person said they should know more by 8/1.
7/23 - I just got an email saying my app status has been updated. The waitlist message is no longer there. “A decision has been rendered” message is. Crossing my fingers that it’s an A but I guess it could just as likely be a R.
