Solar change?

So I log in as I so casually do everyday to check my application status, and I notice..HEY two new categories

For New Students
Pay Initial Deposits fee

Student Financial Services

I'm trying not to overreact....but am I in?!

OH! And my Application Status was updated to 'Your application is complete. The admissions committee will be making a decision shortly.'

    The same thing happened with my daughter today. I am assuming she's in - otherwise they would not ask for our money!

    Haha, yeah that's exactly what I'm thinking.

    Well, if we really are accepted then congratulations to your daughter and I!

    When I applied a few years ago, the deposit and new student links still showed even when my application was pending, long before the status changed to accepted. However, the solar system has changed since then so I can't say for sure.

    I got the same thing. On the 'pay your deposit' page, (with my name in the header) I get the options to checkmark the various deposits for fall 2010 and 'confirm'. There's also a financial aid award page letting me know that an award hasn't been decided yet. I guess I'm accepted?

    Based on what inno89 said, I'm worried again :(.
    So I guess we just have to wait until mid February when they send the letters. Crap.

    Go look on your secondary application status..I remember that that changed for me before I got my acceptance letter.

    I'm almost positive that Chris of SBUAdmissions said last year that if you have the new students tab, it means you're in!

    :)

    Keep in mind that we're NOT DONE YET. There are still a LOT of people whose applications haven't been read yet. We're getting through things as quickly as possible, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't try to read too much into what SOLAR says (or doesn't say).

    Are you guys applying for Fall 2010 semester? And if so, around what time did you submit your application and other documents?

    I'm just wondering because the fact that I have no change on solar is making me nervous considering I sent in my application pretty early. I know its stupid to be nervous but I can't help it. Hehe
  • evnstvnevnstvn Registered User Posts: 98 Junior Member
    I sent my application in September and my transcripts got there early November. I applied for Fall 2010. The post above yours say they're not done yet, so don't worry.

    It doesn't matter when you submitted your application, either; we get through things as quickly as we can, in whatever order things come up. When you sent your original app has virtually no bearing on when you'll get a decision.

    Congrats to those who already know, and "hang in there" to those who don't!

    Will scholarships, WISE, etc. be posted online too as the info becomes available?
  • sbuadmissionssbuadmissions College Rep Posts: 1,835 Senior Member
    They should be, yes.
