I got into the regular program. I'm not sure how long it took I think about 8 weeks. Good luck! Are you really interested in Nova?

At least you recieved an email from Coastal. I had to call to find out.

thanks

Costal actually let me into the their AAMPLE program, but that wasn't really a good choice. Besides I already sent in my seat deposit to Nova, so its all good.

I received an acceptance letter from them in a small white envelope and a request of a decision by April 15. Do not be alarmed if you open the mailbox and you receive a small envelope rather than a large thick one.

I do not know for sure but my e-mail (I have yet to receive a paper conformation of being waitlisted) indicated that they were attempting to fill up their class by the end of April. I assume as deadlines for seat deposits come due you/we will begin to hear back from those schools we were waitlisted at. I am waiting to see what happens with my application at NOVA since they were my number one choice; if I am accepted there I plan on asking to have my name removed from the waitlist and then making a decision between ST. Thomas and them. I will let you know since one less person on a waitlist increases the odds of acceptance.

Thanks!

It took about a month for a decision, but I missed their seat deposit deadline. Do you know how strict schools are aout seat deposit deadlines?..... ? about FIU: I applied via LSAC on 4/9 and they haven't even requested my file yet...how long did yours take?

Congrats
Monday, October 16 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Coastal! Are you going to put down a seat deposit and wait for Nova or would you consider going to Coastal over Nova?
