Congrats, I'm in [sorta] the same boat, but still waiting on two more schools to get back to me. I'm from SD and working downtown for the summer and would love to come back, but everytime I look at the COA it scares me.

Georgia State: "Complete and Ready for Review"
UGA: "Under review by the Admissions Committee"

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



Just found out via status checker that I was denied at UGA. Going to call eventually to see if I can't find out why but I suspect it has to be because I'm part-time. Perhaps they allow transfers in the Spring as well. Hopefully Georgia State will bite.
