Incoming wave?
I tried the chrome hack but it still comes up blank
sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't
mine is also fully blank, I just applied a few days ago but I haven't been able to load it at all oof
is there an admitted students discord or chat?
I had the same issue with the status checker being blank, I called the admissions office and they sent me a new link that works perfectly
drove me nuts lol
also emailed them
Got my A yesterday (1/23) Pepperdine is one of my top choices in California.
congrats!!
