they are on a serious "number kick" this year... you would have been a pretty easy admit in previous years... They are moving further down my list with every post I am seeing... I never liked the idea of "teleconferencing" for any of my classes when I'm paying $33k per year anyways soooo... F that...


From the visit I actually saw the video conferencing as a plus. Mostly because it gives the option for firms to interview who would normally not travel to PA and in the end give the students a greater access to potential employment. If it will work out that way has yet to be seen though.


yes...it is a positive as long as it actually brings the firms in and gets offers....

In review about a month. Just curious for people accepted waitlisted or still waiting what campus did you apply to and why?

Accepted today via email and status checker :) !!!!!!!!!!!!

What are everyone's thoughts? It was originally a safety, but now I am interested.

The more I read into the school, the more I think about the possibility.

I am not from the region, so the regional career is something that may deter me.

I was accepted yesterday on a ridiciulous turnaround.

I submitted on the 18th, in review on the 19th, and in on the 25th.

160, 3.7, OOS, non urm

I can't see my numbers being competitive for scholarships, but was still surprised by the fast response.
