@TNT not yet. I'm starting to get a bit frustrated with how long the remaining schools are taking to get back to me.

Congrats on JMLS. If you don't mind me asking did JMLS admit you directly or admit you to there SCALES program? Did they offer you any financial assistance or scholarships?

Hi @MrsFirefly I was notified by email and received a package in the mail shortly after. They told me during my interview that it would be about 3-4 weeks after. Their committee takes awhile. Good luck!
