I felt like I should have applied to Marquette maybe I still will
Marquette benefits: Cost of living, Diploma Privledge, and personally I currently live in a mid size city in KY. Midsize cities suck. But milwaukee is just cool
11:43
Yeah my fiancé owns a condo in Chicago and has a job in the city so it's hard passing up somewhere free to live and commuting to MKE would be doable but annoying. But it is an awesome city!!
Oh god1 Yea stay in the city! I have done the math on my stats and even if i got a half scholarship at Marquette, and a close to full in Chicago, it would still be cheaper to live in MKE

Got an A around 12 ET!
12:58
congrats kale!
13:16
thank you!! congratulations to you as well!!
14:07
Congrats!! What did your app status change to before getting your decision? Mine has been app complete-decision in 3-4 weeks for a little while now
14:22
My app status changed on 11/02 and received my decision on 11/06
16:20
My status just changed!! Hoping it comes this week! Congrats again :))
17:23
I think my status was something to the order of "In Review" for a few weeks leading up to today
17:24
2.5 weeks or so?
I had "Application Complete - Decision in 3-4 weeks" for a month exactly and today it changed to "Application in Review". Does anyone know what this could mean?
Damn missed this wave:(
Had the same thing as kale
11:12
@nervousoverthinking: congrats on the A!
Thank you @sidewaysgoat
any specific days of the week that depaul typically releases decisions?
14:27
Based on the LSD data it looks like a majority of the decisions come out on Mondays and Tuesdays and then some trickle through at the end of the week. I got my decision on a Tuesday.
anyone know when depaul releases decisions from folks on the wait list?
@GoofyHocRaccoon: when I went to their open house they said they keep people on the waitlist well into the summer right before school starts....no hard dates. Their "deadline" is April 1st but still accept applicants after that
i applied early january, and got a response 1/17

I applied to the PT evening program on 1/11 and got accepted Tuesday 1/23. I'm assuming the process will take longer for FT applications since there are more seats to fill
I got waitlisted today blahh
anyone know the chances of getting off of it

how long after did you all get your login to the status checker? I applied Jan and still can't access
