some advice, i emailed them on sunday saying i was still interested and wondered how my app was doing. they responded on monday saying they will be reviewing my app that day. got the decision today with scholarship info.
xingyin
10:34
sorry, today is (3/21)
Were you waitlisted????? or just under review
xingyin
22:28
i was accepted with scholarship
xingyin
23:56
ahh i get your question now, i was under review.
SO if anyone gets off the waitlist let me know 3/25
Anyone still under review and stressing out
10:56
can you still get a scholarship if youre waitlisted and then offered a spot?
I don't think tbh so they have this scholarship that unless you're offered admission before 4/1 then you are eligible but if it's after you're not eligible maybe some scholarship but not a lot
how likely is it to get off the waitlist here? I know the t14s are basically impossible. Was waitlisted at four. But what about penn state law if at the medians. I feel like some of the waitlist are just soft rejections. I was waitlisted at both penn state schools
I feel like it's extremely low i've been asking them and they just told me they're not sure if they're gonna even have spots
anyone get off the WL today some people did
I got off the waitlist today. offered $18k/year scholarship
when did you apply? and when were u waitlisted
Anyone get off waitlist yet 4/10 deposits due on monday so i'm hoping for some movement
any movement ?
