Congrats.
I was accepted there last week, but I didn't get a phone call, just an email.
About the personal statement- l got an email requesting that I send my resume and PS via email attachment. I sent it in and an hour later I had an email saying I was accepted

in at University of Arkansas - Fayetville.



I'm going to congradulate you, and then have a mini-panic attack.

Congradulations!

Personal statement?  Were we supposed to send in a personal statement?  The app didn't ask for one--all I sent in was my resume...I vaguely remember calling and asking if they wanted anything else?

Perhaps I should send out my personal statment/supplemental material? 

i looked at the application and it doesn't say send one, but i did anyway.  i figured if they didn't want it they would just toss it, but maybe inluding it would make them want to read it.

1. DePaul
2. John Marshall
3. NIU
4. West Virginia
5. Howard


thats my top five in order.  if u notice i would prefer to stay in illinois but wouldn't mind going out of state.  i didn't think i would get into university of arkansas so i don't know how that fits into everything. again, i am just glad i have somewhere to go.

Arkansas is not my first choice, probably #4 though. My top choice is Baylor, then Arizona, with Cardozo being #3, then Arkansas (just because it's higher ranked than the other schools that I have applied to) But, since I have already been accepted to Cardozo, Arkansas probably won't even be considered come spring.
