Anyone else waiting on a decision? I havent even gone under review yet
I've been under review since 11/29 :/ @accidentalthinkablewolf
$75 app fee, said they don't offer fee waivers, and stingy with money. Feels like they are kinda shooting themselves in the foot, the school might be in better standings if they played the game a bit more. Seems like they don't care if people attend or not.
My status says pending decision. Should I expect to hear back soon?
@SpookyPurringSloth: mine has also said pending final decision since 12/8 and no updates yet..
