no, they are ranked like 67th in the nation i think so not too surprising i guess. I am not even sure if they recieved all of my materials b4 they made a decision b/c I called my school and they said they didnt send it all out. anyways not too disappointed certainly not my top choice just trying to cover all basis.

Top 1% at GA TTTT, part-time

Both were submitted before the deadline, but I have no clue if I'll hear anything back before July 1. Here's to hoping.

As you can tell, I'm not exactly thrilled with my current school's professors or registrar's office. Finished exams beginning of May and didn't receive grades until mid to late June, so I couldn't get any documents sent out until recently. Fail.


How Long did W&L take to render a decision from the time your file became complete/in review?

Trying to get back to Wisconsin

Marquette- complete 6/17
University of Wisconsin- complete? 6/27

I've just got a bad feeling about both of these, feel like I'm going to get stuck where I am.

My intuition was wrong.

In @ Marquette via email 6/30. Back to my home state, hell or high water!

Very strange, from a financial standpoint. At the very least, the school should want to balance out attrition due to transfers out.
