I solicited a fee waiver and they responded with a PT post-Dec score release. Requested from a few other schools and saved a significant chunk of change.



I'll give it a shot, I suppose. I actually had a non-PT fee waiver offered after a previous score, so I used that to apply. I just don't want to seem neurotic or imposing if I ask for them to switch me to priority track after I've submitted.


I wasn't PT and was admitted only a few days over the 10 day limit anyway.

No change all day. I guess that means tomorrow is the day I get waitlisted.... otherwise they go over their 10 day limit.

I've heard that there have been decisions made rather late in the day...

Why are you so sure you're getting waitlisted? I went UR 1/13 with PT and haven't heard yet either. I guess if 1/13 counted as Day 1 then today would be Day 10...

Good point. You are probably both getting outright rejected.

I'm not assuming the worst by any means. I'm just impatient.

I am not sure.... but my numbers and some recent posts by others with higher scores have made me expect that... or a denial. Good luck to you though. Post when something happens.

lol I ask this like every two days. I called last week and they said the scholarship committee should be meeting within the next couple of weeks. Last year they came out in early Feb via snail mail so I guess it'll be the same this year.

+1 I went UR on 1/13 too and I'm still UR.
I wonder if they will be working on Sat to stick to their 10-day notice thing...
It's not fair that they will keep me waiting anxiously on Sat too. I need a break! :oops:

It's ten business days, FWIW. But they also have called on Saturdays and Sundays in the past.

My PT invite didn't say business days, just 10 days. Of course, I assumed it was business days.


Same. I'm mostly going on the notion that ITT I think everyone has heard in <10 days from UR.

They haven't. There were a lot of people in November that heard in 12-14 days. I haven't been following this thread since, but I imagine it's still the same.

ah ok, cause i've only been around for the last 5-10 pages and virtually everyone on PT who went UR 1/x heard back 1/(x+10)

I got my PT acceptance via email last Saturday, 1/16. I was UR 1/6. So it could definitely happen today.

Has anyone accepted in the last couple of weeks received the snail mail packet yet?

I got an acceptance e-mail on 1/13 and haven't received anything in the mail yet.

Thanks!

Hopefully they'll clear out all these PT applications and keep on plowing right through the RD apps. I'm getting increasingly nervous as February approaches.
