oh i know.

My family is from Pitt and my cousin is marrying a guy from there and, worst of all, he is an indians fan. not pretty.

I was just wondering if Cleveland is a possible option for small firms coming from Pitt.

I think some of the acceptance deadlines were staggered because mine was definitely listed as April 15 as well.

I believe it was if you got a scholarship.

From what I understood:

4/5 deadline: those with scholarship
4/15: those without scholarship

I think some were able to get extensions. I got one because I wasn't informed of a scholarship initially. Also they send a confirmation e-mail once the payment is received.

scholarship was increased from 14,000 to 17,000.

they said tuition is being increased, though.

will most likely withdraw by the end of the day. GL everyone.

Well, if they're increasing scholarships to keep pace with tuition, I would imagine they're anticipating at least an 8% tuition increase for residents.

I just emailed someone on the admissions committee and told them that I visited the campus and really loved it and that I cant wait to hear from them.

It likely wont speed anything up at all, but it cant hurt.

Accepted as of today, I think making a phone call helped.

It doesn't hurt. I can't remember if it was the end of March or beginning of April, but either way I still hadn't heard. I e-mailed them and told them they were my first choice and they e-mailed me back the next day with an acceptance. So it definitely can't hurt to e-mail/call and express your interest.

Yeah, they're getting contacted by me either tomorrow or Monday. It will probably be Monday because I a working my one job from home tonight and my other paralegal job tomorrow morning. It seems like it does work if so many people have been successful.

I just spoke to admissions, as I've been doing about once a week for these past few weeks. She said all decisions will be made by the 15th.

Call 'em. Or email. Whatevs.

Also, can we get a count on who is going to Pitt?

I'm 98% attending.

Thanks.
From what I've gathered, is a car necesary at Pitt? From what I've gathered it's not, and I really don't want to drive there all the way from TX

i dont think its needed. Some of the apartments charge extra for parking- so it may be a bigger hassle than its worth.
