LOL.

I had given up as well.

I got a phone call from Brooklyn. They left a message asking me to call back. I did, and was told that they had "just finished reviewing my file" and that I was accepted. They called to see if I was 100% committed to another school yet, given the late date. I told them no, that I would definitely consider an offer from Brooklyn. She said okay she would go ahead and send out the acceptance letter and my financial aid package would follow shortly thereafter.

Basically I think that I was a fringe candidate and they put me on the back burner, and accepted their initial group of applicants. Having heard back from them who was coming/not coming, they're not tapping into the second-tier of applicants, like me and maybe you (I don't know your #'s). I had a 2.8/163 FWIW.

Brooklyn will only be a real possibility if I get offered SOME kind of grant/scholarship. Because I believe I was a second-tier applicant, I doubt I'll get a merit scholarship. Suffolk is giving me $15k/year.


We'll see I guess.

But yeah - all hope is not lost yet.

This is good news... I hope.  When did you apply? Were you P/T or F/T?

I went complete in the first week of January.

I applied to and was accepted into the full time program.

I forgot to say congrats too!  Too busy moping over being in my fifth month of pending.

Though, unless they gave me money I can't afford to go there anyway.

i'm in the same boat - if they don't offer me anything it could be a moot point. but we'll see.

Sarah have you heard from St. John's yet.  I think you and I are in the same exact position still waiting on both St. John's and Brooklyn.

NO.
I'm starting to feel like, I don't like you if you don't like me.
Seriously Sour.
