    Assuming a "no" here, but haven't gotten any mail. Have they gone out yet?
  • theatre4evertheatre4ever Posts: 1Registered User New Member
    Called on Friday. Letters going out Monday morning.

    I wonder why they say that all information will go out on March 30th. Why not say, "Successful applicants may be contacted by email or telephone beginning March 14th. Please do not call. Final decisions will be provided no later than April 5" or something like that. I don't understand presenting it one way when it works another way. Of course there should be rolling admissions and wait lists for a program like this, but why not just say so? Any ideas?

    I agree. Last year we were choosing between programs and had deadlines. I called on March 30 and was told the letters had been mailed. It would have been so nice just to say he was declined- end it. But she would not say it. We did get a letter later that day and he was declined. Up until that moment, we felt it could be an acceptance (well, long shot). But it is better to know as soon as possible and move on. Once the letters are sent, send an email. It's faster! Moving on is a good thing.

    Well said elizbstern and theatremomma. My D assumes it's a no but we are still in limbo waiting to make a final decision about accepting another program . . . and putting summer plans on hold for our entire family. We figure it's not kosher to call to inquire, but really wish they would just end the pain quickly by email once they have a final list of acceptances. Snail-mail for rejections and email for acceptances just doesn't make sense.

    They do mail letters to ALL applicants, both those accepted and those who were not. D was accepted via email notification on the 14th, in which we were told a letter would also be mailed to us by March 30, and we have not yet received that. Even though we know we have an acceptance, we have no word until that letter arrives as to whether any financial aid is being offered for her to attend. W/O that info, we really still don't know if she'll be able to attend. So we are all waiting, I guess, just for different reasons! Good luck to all with those summer plans!

    Accepted to TDA. Although my ds is an MT kid, we decided to apply for the TDA program as it was shorter and cheaper. He is also interested in seeing how he likes a strong "straight acting" training. We did not get an e-mail, just the letter and packet today. Have a couple of choices, now to decide.

    Hi, I was placed on the short wait list for TDA and was wondering if anyone had any ideas how many applicants got on this list, or how many people on the wait list have gotten off. Thanks!

    My son finally received his "no" letter. Good to have closure. Thanks ATLAST for your encouraging words regarding OCU. He is a sophomore and is excited to attend.
  • theatremommatheatremomma Posts: 472Registered User Member
    And don't let him feel like "I guess they didn't like me". That's what happened with us last year and then someone who goes there told us that they had so many qualified juniors that they never considered the sophomores. Good luck next year!
  • ATLASTATLAST Posts: 140Registered User Junior Member
    Please DO try again next year. Our D applied as a sophomore last year and I think she DID feel that they didn't like her because she was not accepted, but she applied this year as a junior and it turns out that was not the case, as she did get in this year! Sometimes the door closes to allow room for other opportunities, which D was able to do in NYC last summer with another great program. The door to this one may swing open again next time around...Theatremomma is right!

    Received my letter this morning and I was waitlisted!
  • redscorpion6redscorpion6 Posts: 95Registered User Junior Member
    Thanks for all the encouraging words!! It really helps. He will apply again next year.
  • theatrebound13theatrebound13 Posts: 18Registered User New Member
    nickacostello, were you just waitlisted, or did the letter tell you were taken off the waitlist? Thanks!
  • nickacostellonickacostello Posts: 21Registered User New Member
    The letter was informing me that I have been put on the waitlist for MPulse Musical Theatre Workshop, and that I will be contacted if an opening becomes available.
