Transfer to USD

Applying to USD- application was complete a while ago and still have not heard. Anyone else find themselves in this situation?

I am top 19% at a T4, and supposedly the top 20% walk right in, but I don't think it's a good sign I haven't heard back yet. Any input?

Call the school.

I have. One girl told me 2-4 weeks (which is cutting it real close with the start of my second year at my current school), and some other dude said that I could find out all the way up until the first day of classes (f that).

Someone there also told me that the first wave of notifications already went out. Any speculation upon what this might mean?

First wave means they send out acceptances, and see how many people actually enroll or put down a deposit. If some of those people elect not to attend, then they send out more acceptances if they need to. At least that's how it works at a lot of schools. You could wait as long as you can, then try calling again.

Good luck.

Thanks. I might just call tomorrow and demand they tell me something useful, haha.

For those of you interested in USD, here is what a buddy of mine who called admissions today found out: a majority of notifications will be sent out next Wednesday. Also, the rumor that the top 20% from Cal Western and TJ are practically in, has a lot of merit when looking at last year's numbers. Hope this alleviates some stress for those in a similar situation.
