@OJDidntDoIt: why are you applying so late into the cycle?
@OJDidntDoIt: if you applied back in november you certainly were getting a full ride if not a stipend.

Ok

@FlutteringSqueamishPuffin: I'm a non-traditional. Been out of school a handful of years and decided late to take the leap lol. I know I handicapped myself applying so late

10:44

any movement on wait list after seat deposit deadline on 6/1?
12:30
I got my A in 6/5, so I’m assuming they’re starting to move things along
just got accepted off the waitlist! received the waitlist email on 6/3, sent my letter of cont. interest same day, got a courtesy call from the director today saying that im in :)
I got my "high priority" WL email on 4/11, emailed my LOCI on 5/23 and still haven't heard bad, so that's disheartening :(
*Heard back
Got waitlisted in November and sent multiple locis I pray to god they let me in 🤞🏼
