    I've had this status since october 10th ...when should i expect a response?
  • ephenstephenst Posts: 187Registered User Junior Member
    I have still not heard back yet. But I'm not really worried. The last piece of my application (official transcripts) were sent out last monday. I still have a few weeks of anxious waiting to do.


    If you sent your application out early and still have not heard back, there's really no guessing your decision. Whats certain is that you are most likely a middle case. Not the strongest but most certainly not the weakest. With these cases they end up holding out their decision for a few more weeks. The admissions offcers generally would like to see more applications before they decide your fate. This is neither good nor bad. It just is what it is :)

    You guys are lucky. Last year I applied September 1st and was accepted January 21st. And I wasn't alone in the long wait.

    I'm surprised that I was accepted so soon. I wouldn't consider myself above average.

    the order of acceptances seems to be somewhat of a mystery. 11scmetz, which school did you apply to?
  • 11scmetz11scmetz Posts: 37Registered User Junior Member
    Main first choice, Altoona second. I currently fall in a blue bubble on the bubble chart though so hopefully I get university park! If i get altoona though, i dont think I'd go to Penn State then even if it's my number 1.

    you?

    I meant what school at UP did you apply to? Smeal, Engineering, etc. My D was accepted to Dept of Undergraduate Studies- the one for undecided majors
  • 11scmetz11scmetz Posts: 37Registered User Junior Member
    Oh sorry!
    I applied for the Dept of Undergraduate Studies as well, I plan on going into communications but I wanted to apply undecided in the case that my major was popular or something where it would hurt me to not get accepted.

    well I feel your anxiety waiting for the decision...my D initially wanted to go to Penn State but over the summer visited Pitt and loved it even more than Penn State...so now we have decision from Penn State but still waiting for letter from Pitt! Ironically, we had been told we'd hear from Pitt first, but it happened in reverse.

    That's what is so nerve wracking about this process. My son wants to go to Penn State absolutely #1. He is driving himself crazy thinking about it. Pitt is his third choice and he got accepted on October 7th. I told him he may not hear from Penn State until late January. He is definitely on the bubble for Penn State. One of his good friends already was accepted to Penn State but really wants to go to Pitt and has not heard. So stressful!

    Mine says: Your application has been received and is being reviewed. Thank you for applying to Penn State.
    Does this mean something bad?

  • psufan1993psufan1993 Posts: 195Registered User Junior Member
