I was waitlisted for Fall 2016

Now what?
I'm pretty sure I'm in Fullerton, and I already got accepted to CSULA.
I have a cumulative gpa of 3.4 and JC GPA of 3.7. And I'm from the Bay Area.
Should I give up hope??

    I got waitlisted as well. I think all we can do now is just keep waiting for emails and submit documents needed in order to (halfway) secure a spot lol. Don't give up hope! LB is my school of choice and I'm from the Bay too!!

    Are you transfer students or freshman?
  • bluesskybluessky Registered User Posts: 16 New Member
    @lilahgonz Yeah, hopefully. I got in to SFSU but I would prefer to stay in SoCal

    I'm transferring.
    It's because I got a B spring 2015, and 3 last semester.
    I should have listened to my brother and applied to Berkeley, I would have 100% gotten in.

    I got waitlisted and so did my bro. He's English major and i'm bio but we're not local.
    I really wanted to go to LB but I guess I'll find another place

    Does anyone know about the AA-T verification when it will go away from the to-do list after it has been submitted electronically?
  • evancliffellmanevancliffellman Registered User Posts: 18 New Member
    Nevermind, ADT verification disappeared today off of my required documents.

    My case:
    Transfer student from a local community college and graduated from a Local High School (with both categories i should have had local preference but i still was sent to the waitlist.). I spoke to them and i found out that they made an error and didn't give me my local preference so they just said that they cant do anything and i will remain on the waitlist.

    My major is Biomedical Engineer
    GPA: 3.55
    Minimun prerequesites ALL COMPLETED
    I completed one of RECOMMEDED courses left one to be completed at the University.
    Golden Four: ALL COMPLETED

    I accepted to be on the waitlist if a spot comes available. Checked my application status and said the following:

    "We have received your acceptance of our waitlist offer. You can expect to hear a final admission decision by late June. Please remember that admission is not guaranteed so please continue to pursue a backup plan."

    Hopefully everything works for us and we get in! I will post my status by late of june and share if i was accepted or not! Good Luck everybody!

    I am waitlisted for fall 2016. I applied to Csulb mfa in drawing and painting figurative track. I get the feeling I won't get an answer till maybe June? Website does say April 15 decisions are final, but as a waitlist candidate, I hear many get acceptance even after that. Good luck friends!
  • vun hunvun hun Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
    Couldn't help it, I called admissions to see what number on the wait list. I'm third and it's unlikely a spot will open up. Will reapply in a couple of years.
