Congrats on your acceptances. Southwestern requires a $300 deposit by 4/1/05 and another $200 by 7/1/05. Good Luck on your pendings and Chapman waitlist!

  • withdrawls

Why did you withdraw your applications from the only places you were accepted to?

  • re:withdrawls

I got accepted to Western State too, who offered $15,000 in scholarships. I figured if I don't get accepted to the schools I want to attend, I'll minimize my debts by going there. Plus, it would be easier to transfer b/c Western State isn't so cutthroat.

  • question

Do you know much about the Southwestern waitlist? I never sent them a letter expressing my interest to attend. Is there still any hope for me to get off the waitlist? Should I even try? I've pretty much settled on Californis Western, but I don't know.

I think that if you keep bugging them, you might still have a chance. When I met with admissions, I was told that if you're persistent enough, they will let you in. Basically, They're afraid that the people they accept from the waitlist will end up declining their offer because most have already decided on a school already (that lowers their ranking). They like to accept people they know WILL attend their school. Also, they accept people until the first day of class (8/22/05). If you live in the neighborhood, set up an appointment with the admissions lady and meet with her and express your desire to attend. If you're interested in doing that, email me and I'll give you the lady's name.

BTW, I met with admissions just last week and received the acceptance call yesterday (that's less than a week!).

  • Confused

I'm really confused as to what to do. Although Southwestern outranks Cal Western, I think the quality of life and location at Cal Western trumps Southwestern. I also intend to transfer, and was hoping the fact that competition at Cal Western isn't as brutal as I heard it is at Southwestern. I have almost everything set up in San Diego (will be living with a friend), but I'm not on the lease, so I can leave any time. I'm not as excited to attend Southwestern as I have been before. If I set up a meeting with them and tell them I'm interested, it would be a lie. Should I be interested? What made you do it? Thanks for your help

  • Meeting

  • Southwestern

I just sent them a letter. I may call them as soon as tomorrow. It's going to break my heart if and when I get the rejection though.

  • I want to attend SW b/c...

I would like to transfer also. I believe that both grades and the "quality" of school attended is important when transferring. Also, SW is close to where I live.
