Got the rejection for the ALS fellows scholarship by email this afternoon, just in case anyone else hadn't checked yet.

Got this too. Was kind of bummed, but then got a call from the admissions office, and was offered a $2500/yr scholarship. Anyone else have this happen as well?

Anyone going to the IP reception tomorrow night? I went to the first one, but I'm thinking about going to this one as well for the whole IP focus of it all.

I was under the impression that the only thing FB charged for was sending messages to people that you're not friends-of-friends with, but that have changed...

Anybody having any luck with their housing search so far? It's not going as well as I would like at the moment.

No, scary lack of movement on the housing front. Hopefully things start hooking up as people move out after the semester.

I saw that, but I thought the school was going to make a group for us, not just put a page up to like or whatever.

That's the one I made :) Maybe I was wrong about the payment, I'll clean it up.

My status checker headline changed again from being about setting up a visit to that they were sending an official acceptance packet. I think that's what it said right after I got accepted so maybe it's just an error, but hopefully it means they are mailing out more info now that deposits are in.

Been looking in the Virginia Highlands/ Inman park area. I found a few places and they rent immediately before I get to look at them. Just frustrating so far

Understandable, just keep hustling. Those areas are definitely great places to be looking, but unfortunately the move-in/move-out times for current rental residents is less regular or predictable than in other parts of town, IMO (for instance, the rental places that surround Emory have much more of a mass exodus in May and a mass influx in late July/early August).

Email this AM saying I've been placed on the "Priority Waitlist"... But who knows what that means...

I wonder if this is the basic response to anyone who makes the initial request to remain on the waitlist/that I emailed in the day of the decision 2-3 weeks ago, or if this is because of the LOCI I sent in last week.


Anyone else get this email, or have experience with GSU priority waitlist?



EDIT: Just received a confirmation that they are adding the LOCI to my file, so I guess it hasn't been factored in yet...

Are you considering retaking in June since they will still accept it?

To be honest, I was seriously dreading having to do that, as I already wrote it for the second time (and again scored less than my PT averages).

It's all good, because I was admitted via email, this morning. I think my LOCI that I sent in last friday put me over the top...

And, I just mailed the $500 deposit to Mercer yesterday, too smh...

Soli Deo Gloria, lol...
