You can do it! If you've already done NeedAccess and FAFSA I think it's worth the extra burden of sending in the tax returns and W2s.


I haven't done NeedAccess or FAFSA. I started NeedAccess, but it's going to take forever to get everything done :(

Additionally, asked if it would do any good to submit a further LOR at this point and she said probably wouldn't make it in time.

Tidbits for starving baby birds :-)



This was last week....... I was really hoping it were true.

Just went under review 5/9....going to predict a 2 day review and then a reserve or ding(probably the latter).

Sent a LOCI last week and got an email today reminding me to send them additional materials for further consideration. I don't have anything new. I graduated a long time ago so no updated transcripts and I've held the same job so no updated resume. The whole waitlist thing is depressing, especially since I can't think of anything that's changed since I submitted my app.

Has anybody received any acceptances off of the reserve list this past week or even today? I'm really trying to feed the hope that tells me I might have a chance of getting off of the reserve list... :(

I'll bet that, after 3 review dates, you are admitted. If not, at least you know that you got your money's worth.

You can only tell if you are neurotic, check it every day, and count the number of different dates.
