Extra Curricular Information


Additional info & updates

04.15.2008 - I applied to Nova at the end of December. Within a month, I received a conditional acceptance. I have to complete the AAMPLE program in order to earn a seat in the 2008-2009 program.

4.15.2008 - I applied to FAMU sometime in February 2008. I was hoping to receive an answer on my admission by now. Does anybody out there know how long it takes for FAMU to respond? I call there every week. I don't want to be bothersome.

04.17.2008 - As more time goes on, the more inpatient I am getting. I guess if I was rejected from FAMU, I would of heard something by now. I just need to here something so I know what I need to do. Should I wait for an answer from FAMU or should I just go to Nova during the summer? I hope I here something soon.

04.22.08 I called FAMU this morning. They told me they would call me later on this evening. I hope it is good news. If not, I'm planning on attending the AAMPLE program at Nova which starts 05/14/2008.

04.22.08 I called FAMU later on today; they said my application is still in review.

04.28.2008 I called FAMU today: same story. The closer it gets to May 13, 2008 (the beginning to the AAMPLE Program at Nova), the more I feel I should forget about going to FAMU. The tuition at Nova for one year would pay for my tuition at FAMU for all three years. I hope I hear something soon.

04.30.2008 Today is a GOOD day! I received my acceptance letter to FAMU for the 2008 fall class. I was so excited that I had to do a little dance outside by my mailbox. The envelope says " Welcome to the FAMily". I have to send in my deposit by May 16, 2008. You know they will get my deposit by the end of the week. I am sooo glad my wait is over. Now I can go on with my life.

05.05.08 - I received an email from FAM stating that they had received my seat deposit. Now, I have to plan to make my move :)!!!

My soft factors are okay. I have been working for about ten years as a mental health counselor and real estate broker. I work with youth that are involved in dependency court. I am involved in the court system. I write court reports and testify on the behalf of the State of Florida. As a real estate broker, I deal with contracts daily.

Also, I have a masters degree in Sociology from FAMU.

Wow! You've got a lot going for you. :-) I'm surprised you haven't heard back yet. I'm sure you will get in. The admissions committee is probably swamped with applications right now... and, to make it move more slowly, the withdrawals are probably trickling in, too. So, they've got their hands full. I agree with you, if you had been rejected, they would have done so by now. Keep the faith. I hope to see you on campus on June 20 for New Student Orientation Day.

Thanks for your words of encouragement. I hope to hear something soon.

Thanks for the kind words! Honestly, FAMU was super fast for me in getting a decision. After I turned in my residency affidivit on last Wednesday, I was mailed by acceptance letter two days later on Friday, and then today, they emailed me the scholarship offer. They were scary fast. But I'm sure ull get in though, just remain patient and keep your chin up. Good luck on your decision, I wish you the best.

It took 5 months, but I got an email from them yesterday that said I was accepted.

Tuesday, October 02 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yes, I am still going to attend Oklahoma City University.

Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yea, the scholarship is pretty sweet. But if FIU doesn't accept me, I'll have to decide between FAMU and Akron.

good luck!

wishing you only the best!

Hey ksin, You and I are in the same boat. I got into NCCU's PBAP program which is their equivalent to Nova's AAMPLE. It's only 2 weeks but I'm waiting to hear from FAMU and they are taking forever. I mean if you're going to say no get on with it already. I check my e-mail frantically hoping to see something and I'm getting to a road block. Grrrr!

Wednesday, September 20 2006 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptance !!!

Friday, April 11 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hopefully I will be able to do my mailbox dance pretty soon!!!

Sunday, April 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the good luck wishes. And congrats on getting your acceptance. I'm really hoping that I can do my dance soon too! LOL. I can just picture it!

Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the kind words, and Congrats on FAMU, there's still an outside chance I'll be joining ya over there in Orlando.

Monday, March 10 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congratulations! I'm so excited for you. :-) See, it pays to stay positive. Will you be moving to Orlando?

Sunday, April 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hey ksin... I got in at FAMU. I'm not sure if I'll be going there in fall but it's nice to have options. We're going to law school girl!
