I literally have forgotten about CLS. Would be totally weird if they decided to let me in.

Maybe this is a good thing! I'm still completely rooting for you.


Ahhh thanks but I have no idea how long it's going to take for my transcript to get there. The clock is ticking! I wish they'd have asked back in January or even February. Plus it's not like my grades are actually going to help since there wasn't any change. :(

Hopefully that is a good sign? I had a fall grade request back on 1/20, but alas I am still forgotten.

Are you near/above GPA median? If so, no change is good.

Nope. Nowhere close. Even a 4.0 last semester wouldn't have put me up there, and they have to realize that so I don't see the point in this. I'm a fairly decent URM candidate, so my guess is they wanted to see if my grades got closer to their standards at all to justify taking me. That's not going to happen, so hopefully now I will at least get my ding/reserve sooner rather than later! :D

PM'd.

Haha they just thanked me for my file update. I didn't update my file CLS; you asked for it...MONTHS AFTER HAVING MY APP! (Granted they couldn't ask for my fall grades in October, but still! :D )

Me too! I can't believe they've strung you along for so long. I will be unhappy if after all this they put you on reserve.

Grade request at this point can only be good, I think.


For those of us all done with UG, though...

Currently still waiting to hear back from CLS after submitting early feb... but just thought I'd update that a classmate of mine who applied near the feb deadline just got in this afternoon via e-mail. He has a 3.9/173 so he pretty much knew he was getting in... just thought I'd let everyone know that they are letting people in (slowly but surely).
