I thought it said accepted. my bad. still, why U o P as second?
Congrats on your acceptances. What got you interested in the east coast schools?
good luck as well! what's your first choice?
Thanks...I can't wait to move up there. I hope the waiting doesn't kill you and good luck with Pacific .
For me it's Penn State, and I'm very satisfied with that, although I might reevaluate if Rutgers takes me off the wait list. The good news for YOU is that applications are down more than 8% from last year, so there's likely to be a good amount of churn on your wait list schools, so you may have more choices coming your way if Cal Western doesn't float your boat. I'm still waiting for an answer from UOP too, but I suppose if they haven't filled their class by now it's going to be either waitlist or rejection. And don't rule out Golden Gate. SF is a great city, the school is on great public transit, and living in SF is a fantastic adventure for anyone who hasn't done it before. Mark Wisecrack
If your key issue is the probation status, don't let it sway you very much. There's no risk to you, because if you matriculate when they are accredited (probationary or not) then you are considered to have graduated from an ABA school even if they lose it later. That's an ABA rule and you can see the details on the GGU site, or the ABANET site too. I'm not trying to push GGU, just that if your key issue is the probation, it's nothing to worry about. And last year's pass rates are in, and GGU improved plenty, so it looks like the probation thing will be over soon. There wasn't any transgression, just put on probation because their bar passage rate dropped too low. Good luck - making the decision can be as difficult as getting accepted.
To answer some of your questions... I love San Diego. San Diego does have woodsy wilderness if you go east 20 miles or so (but not so woody, keep in mind San Diego is a desert). But, San Diego is famous for its marine wilderness. The beach culture, surfing, the ocean, I find it infiltrates all parts of life in San Diego. It's a very, very laid back city. I've never been to Miami, but I assume it's somewhat similar in that aspect. One of my favorite parts about San Diego is I'm not sure you could find a cleaner or safer "downtown" area in any other metropolis in the U.S. Great bars, clubs, restaurants, etc. The best part about Cal Western is it is in walking distance to most of these great areas. It's quite common for Cal West students to live in the surrounding Bankers Hill, Little Italy, or Cortez Hill (shoot, even Gaslamp...). You'll have to forgive me, today was a beautiful & sunny 85 degrees so I'm in bit of a "I love San Diego" mood :)
good job getting into denver. why is university of the pacific your second choice? good luck with the rest!
