I didn't even realize people had been posting here so this is cool! I'm Linda from the myspace group (I have facebook too but I wasn't sure if there was an ability to make an inter-school group and I'm not too sure that everyone has facebook so I figured since everyone raves about myspace I'd make the group there). I'm 100% sure I'll be in Pittsburgh in the fall and I couldn't be happier.
psuisback- definitely don't give up hope. i have always said that this process is so RANDOM that you never know what's gonna happen. I take it you are a student at psu? Is your gf being in pittsburgh your only reason for the transfer or are you not quite diggin' psu? good luck in getting in- hopefully your application will stand out from the previous batches!
Mmtino2- I see you've joined the myspace group and I've already said hey there
. What's the 90% thing all about? Is there something still holding you back from being fully committed? Is the other school you got into the reason? Btw which school is it? (The only schools I can imagine getting flack on this board are NESL and Suffolk). I got into NESL but Duq was the obvious favorite. I'm happy about the COL in Pitt too. I'm used to paying around $600 plus utilities so I'm really happy I can live in Pitt for A LOT less. Though, I am looking into Squirrel hill/Shadyside and those parts seem to have the more pricier places. We'll see...
Corbabe- I've been watching both you and crossexam on lsn for a long time since you guys have been waiting FOREVER to hear back from Duq. Crossexam actually posted a thread in the law school applications forum (Is there any hope left) talking about his Duq wait. I'm sure it sucks to wait but I'm holding out hope for you guys- we figured the latest you should hear by is May 1st so hopefully this week or next will be your week to hear back! Honestly, if you applied back in november and still haven't heard, I would think it's an unwritten deferral which means they obviously saw something good in your file and want to let you in but they're just being number whores for the time being and are just letting people in with higher numbers at the moment. When all those high numbers folks actually withdraw and head to UofPitt
, I'm sure they'll start letting the deferrals in. Thanks for offering up some tips about the area- I will definitely shoot some your way. Good luck!
