They allow you to state your preference if you get waitlisted.  That happened to me last year.  (Loyola LA)

Good to know.  Thanks for the clarification.

So. . .if they waitlist me for part-time (which is what I applied for), can I tell them my preference is full-time?  :D

(Okay, no one thought that was funny but me.  I need sleep)

I know that was a joke, but i don't know.

I doubt it, though.

Does anyone know if Loyola (Los Angeles) started accepting part-timers yet? I applied there back in October for the evening program and I'm getting just a wee bit antsy...

Any help would be great!

Demi, I'm pretty sure they haven't accepted PTers yet.  No one on lsn has been accepted at least.  I looked at last year's results, too, and I think the earliest acceptance was late February with most being in April and May (which sucks because I have deposits due way before May and I'm not made of money).  Then again, there were only 3-4 PT acceptances on LSN that I saw, so that's not a very great sample.

And a week after I ask about Loyola... I get ACCEPTED!!!

Accepted today for the part-time program! Totally thrilled as this was a reach school for me as well as one of my top choices.

I checked the status checker and it said Decision on 2/15/07. So it's worth a shot looking at the status checker to see if yours is on the way.  ;)

Just wanted to revive this thread and see if anyone's considering coming to the admitted students day on 27 April.

I wasn't originally planning on attending, but who am I kidding?  Living in LA has been a pipedream of mine since I was 15.  Even if I decide not to go because the BF prefers NorCal and/or Pacific offers me more money, I'd like to have the opportunity to evaluate the school in person.  Plus, I have family down there who've offered to let me stay with them, so really I just need to pay for the cost of the flight (and the $200 deposit that's due the week beforehand ;)).  I think the cost will hurt me in the short-term, but looking at this from a long-term point of view, $450 is not going to kill me.  And, as I said above, I'd get to visit family, so it's a good thing all around.

Now. . .have any part-timers been awarded scholarships at all?  This is a big concern for me, since they cost a bunch (also, would anyone mind explaining the discrepancy between the cost of full-time and part-time?  3 years full-time would cost approx. $101K whereas 4 years part-time is around $89K.  Wouldn't the same amount of credits cost the same amount?  Or are they not including the cost of summer sessions in that part-time figure?  I'm confused).

I'm going to email the dean of admissions this week to verify the date of the program and to inquire about scholarship possibilities.  I see they've got a public interest scholarship, but although I want to go into PI work, I don't have much of a background in it to speak of since I had to work throughout undergrad.  We'll see.

I'm just about as excited about Loyola as I am about Pacific.  Hopefully one of these makes itself known as the clear winner before I get incredibly frustrated and confused trying to choose between the two of them. :)
