Congrats! From what I've noticed people who apply to both Hofstra and St. Johns, Hofstra almost always offers more.

Thanks. I'll see if I can use it as a bargaining chip with St. John's, but doubling my commute would sway me from going to St. John's either way.

Yeah, I would try and negotiate with St. Johns. Then turnaround and tell Hofstra. Maybe you'll get lucky and they'll budge.

Off the wait list as of yesterday! What a relief considering the only other school I applied to (CUNY) rejected me. Looking forward to telling my job I'll be leaving this summer! Good luck everyone on the wait list, if you live close sign up for a campus tour. The school told me that it will help your chances of getting off the wait list, did the trick for me

Anyone still not get a status check email? I haven't and I sent my app in like a week ago... or maybe I'm just anxious.

If people have been waitlisted or admitted and are not attending, f__king withdraw immediately. Other people's lives are depending on this sh*t.

Waiting on merit $. Don't assume that my life or any other person's doesn't depend on these decisions as well.

I was mostly referring to the f_ckwads who know they are not going yet get their rocks off by having several acceptances lingering at once.

Like I said, I'm pretty excited!
But now I have the familiar-to-many decision to make: Hofstra or St. John's?
I think it's time to visit!

Don: Have you visited either or both yet? I'd say go wherever you feel most comfortable and you'd like to spend the next three years of your life.

I'm visiting Hofstra and going to QU's ASD next weekend. Hoping to have a decision a week after that.

let me know what your thoughts are on QU, I've got $10k at Hofstra and $30k at QU...at this point it's kind of a toss up between the two. I am planning on join to the 3/28 ASD at QU and at least visit Hofstra. The real question is whether Hofstra is worth the $35k/year vs $15k/year at QU...I just don't know
