What does Application Withdrawn mean?

redzebras35redzebras35 Registered User Posts: 7 New Member
I just got rejected from SJSU but why does it say Application Withdrawn instead of rejection? I'm just curious, I expected it to say the latter.

Also, this was my top school and was just a saddening start to my morning :| I thought I would at least get accepted there but I understand that my stats are barely there.

    Might just be a euphemism for rejection but part of me would be concerned that maybe something was missing from your app or something else that actually invalidated your application.

    contact the school to find out.

    You should contact admissions since it probably means you did not meet the minimum requirements or some required documentation was missing from your application.

    Sounds like something was missing from your application.
    Did you open your portal? Generally, all the the information about elements received (or not) will be there,
    and students are expected to be responsible about fulfilling them all.

    That said, if it is really something that's missing, you might try - in conjunction with your school counselor - to provide that information within an appeal, if you're so inclined.
