Am I in at Southwestern?
« on: February 12, 2006, 11:18:09 AM »
My online status checker indicates that a decision has been mailed to me on 2/9/06.  Although I haven't recieved anything in the mail yet, I am anticipating an acceptance because Southwestern hasn't sent out anything other than letters of admission, according to LSN.  Am I correct in reasoning this?

My best guess, based on your numbers, would be yes. My own numbers are pretty similar and I applied PT. I still show as complete and under review, but also hope to hear something soon. Good luck!

Thanks - i'm sure you'll be fine (PT makes you a shoe-in candidate).  What are your other choice schools?  Have you heard back from anywhere yet?  Where do you intend to go?  CA native?

Freakin southwestern. I sent my apt on 11/7 & it STILL says my app is complete & being reviewed. I marked FT as my 1st choice & PT as my second choice.

They are taking forever with my application. It might not be a bad sign though. The admissions rep from SW told me that if you were rejected from your first choice, you wouldn't even be considered for your second choice...

I didn't know that, but I think I just applied FT.  Either way, I dont think SWU has sent out any rejections yet... but on Mon. mine might be the first!  :-X (actually, I don't really care).

You won't be rejected. Your numbers make you an excellent applicant at SWU.

Thanks, you were correct, indeed; I recieved the acceptance package today.  SWU sent me all sorts of goodies including "A Student's Guide to Living in Los Angeles" which may come in handy if Loyola or Pepperdine admits me!  ;)

im waiting on swestern too. 2.64, 161. its my first choice so any feedback on my chances would be appreciated. someone mentioned only your 1st choice would be honored so does that mean if im rejected FT then I cant go PT?

Yes. The admissions rep said that if you are rejected from your first choice you wouldn't be considered for your second choice. So I guess you could only get your second choice if there wasn't enough room for you in your first choice or another similar scenario.
