I am also still waiting to hear a response either way, as I am still at "Application Complete" and "Initial E-mail Sent." I have lost all hope at this point, but I really need closure. I heard that all transfer applicants were to be informed as to whether we have been accepted or rejected by today, Friday, July 20. I don't think I have ever checked a website as much as I checked my status checker today. Does anyone have any news?

I just now called and was told that we'd be informed "early next week." The woman was apologetic that it is taking so long.

I just knew that we were supposed to find out around the 15th-I didn't hear about the deadline being the 20th to find out.

I just realized I didn't submit the FERPA form which also seems to be a requirement. (just an fyi if anyone may have made the same omission)

Just got mine too. In that email with the info it talks about the ferpa form. It's just an agreement to follow policies during oci.

On the FERPA form, we have to fill out student ID number. Does anyone know where we get that information?

Log into Caesar. Click main menu at the top. Click view my student id on the drop down menu. Took me a minute to find it this morning.

Anyone still waiting to hear back? Obviously all hope is lost at this point; the deposit for transfers was due yesterday. However, some closure would be nice...

BTW, let me know if any of you need a roommate, or know someone looking for a roommate. I am still looking for a place to stay.

I'm hoping that the lack of activity on this thread means that the yield percentage was low and that they let a couple of us poor souls still waiting in.
