I'm really hoping to see some movement this week!! Since I have a dog I don't think I can use school housing :(


Sorry my attempt at a consolation is moot :? Though really, sooner is much preferable for a variety of reasons, notably my mental stability :cry:


We'll see what happens with the Aston, I asked recently and the guy in charge said that they received more requests to live in the Aston than usual, some people who got in before are still on the waiting list for the Aston. He didn't say what the timetable for finding out about it would be though

was everything done over email?

Also: LSN shows a few WL->accepts that were done yesterday so I assume they made a few offers. I also assume that the majority of the offers will be made by Friday and then another wave will prob happen after the June 21st deposit deadline for the WL offers.
this waiting game is no fun :(

Yeah. Got it at 4:30pm (EST). I wonder if the e-mails were sent to everyone in the waitlist or just to some people. It would make a huge difference. Probably the former though.

congrats!
I think there will be many more like you who will wonder up until the jun21 deadline, so I think that those who didn't hear anything will prob continue to get radio silence up until then. the 21st is also a Friday, so the game will prob resume the week of June 23rd...

Hi all-

For PT program, does anyone have any indication if the orientation will be held during the evening or day for our program? Also, does anyone know when classes are held (M-TH? how many hours?) just trying to figure out how this is all going to go with my job!

Thanks :)

You usually do it this month. Yes the grad plus covers the rest. Do you have "adverse" credit history? You can get your free credit report online and look. Its literally in a section on your report. That's the basis for which it is established. Ive already gone through the process of the appeal and know a lot about it if you (or anyone else) wants to pm me. Although I finally got the appeal done wiith but turns out I didn't even need the grad plus (thx WUSTL)

Unfortunately, I've been told by GW's financial aid department that they don't send out the loan requests to the Feds until July 15th at the earliest. Which means you can't complete the request process until then. In my case, I know I have adverse credit, but I'm told I still have to go through the process, get denied, then appeal with a co-signer with good credit (which thankfully I have).

It's going to make for a stressful July/August, but I'm told it almost always gets worked out

Withdrew, part-time evening. Hope that frees up a slot for someone here.
