Out of the blue, today I received a letter congratulating me on my acceptance into the traditional 3 yr. program. What????!! That means I have now been accepted in to the 2 yr., 3 yr. and 4 yr.! Evidently a lot of people are not paying up and my "new" 2nd deposit deadline is June 1st and not May 1st. So ... obviously there is still room for plenty of acceptances (and for you to suffer a bit longer) after June 1st when the 2nd deposits don't respond. Remember, I was told that not only was the 3 yr. full but that due to the huge increase in apps. that there would likely not be much change and secondly, that I would not receive any sort of correspondence indicating any decision re. my transfer from SCALE to 3 yrs. So there you have it -- hope it boosts your spirits a tad!
Thanks for the update filmbuff and CONGRATULATIONS!
Now, onto another matter. This is a thread that originated back in November for the SOLE PURPOSE of those interested in attending Southwestern for the fall of 2010. If you look around, you will find many school threads just like it with many folks very anxious for either regular or waitlist acceptances/rejections. People post in them EVERY DAY and it gives them a chance to vent frustrations, hear about others experiences, get updates on the process, and to hopefully get to know some of the students we'll be with for the next 3 years. This is one place on TLS where you should feel safe. If you feel the need to chastise or berate a poster on here, either send them a PM or keep your personal opinions to yourself. There are plenty of other off-topic threads here at TLS where you can feel to call people idiots, immature, or morons concerning their opinions. I do it every day!
Stay classy Southwestern thread!!
Enough rant. Good luck and best wishes to all!
