    That all sounds just fine. My feeling is once you are accepted then you should ask away (within the realm of reasonableness/courtesy). They already decided that they want you as a student and now you need to decide if the school fits your needs. Good luck.

    So did you SIR to Drexel?
  • philbegasphilbegas Registered User Posts: 2,912 Senior Member
    SIR? I assume it has to do with depositing? If so, yes!

    Still waiting for responses from Northeastern, BC, Bentley, UDel, Brown, and NYU. Although I'm planning out my life as though it's going to be Drexel.

    Wow..why haven't those schools haven't made their decisions yet? Either way can't wait, Drexel seems like a good option for you.
  • philbegasphilbegas Registered User Posts: 2,912 Senior Member
    I have no idea. UDel and Villanova won't make decisions until after spring grades are out. And the other ones just say before June or before June 15th.
  • chemist76chemist76 Registered User Posts: 50 Junior Member
    You should look at the deposit fee deadline for the colleges that accepted you. If you wait for other schools or are too indecisive you can miss out on a spot.
  • philbegasphilbegas Registered User Posts: 2,912 Senior Member
    I paid the deposit for drexel don't worry!
  • arc918arc918 Registered User Posts: 663 Member
    SIR = statement of intent to register (with deposit)

    Congrats on Drexel and good luck with the rest of them

    @MassDaD68 - I'm glad things worked out at Bryant for your son. (and apologies to the OP for going off topic)
  • philbegasphilbegas Registered User Posts: 2,912 Senior Member
    I am also glad they worked out!

    I decided to switch to the 2 co op program at Drexel as well.
  • philbegasphilbegas Registered User Posts: 2,912 Senior Member
    Well I was denied from Brown's "Business, Entrepreneurship, and Organizations" program which is unsurprising lol.

    I was accepted into Cuny Baruch, but I am not a direct admit to Zicklin Business so I'm probably going to pass. They want me to come and take a mathematics assessment test on June 2nd and that's after I have to commit anyways!

    I would agree. Especially as a transfer student if you don't have a direct admit to the b-school I'd stick with Drexel.

    And oh well about Brown -- it was worth a shot! As my son said (when he was rejected from a college), it is not a bad thing to get a rejection because at least you know you reached high.

    Of course, and throughout this journey I have always tried to be realistic about my expectations. When all was said and done, I had applied to around 20 colleges (Rutgers and Cuny each allow 3 campuses under one fee).

    U of Delaware told me they wanted my spring grades before they consider my application (and Villanova is the same as well), but I'm torn about whether I want to bother with them.

    (Also Boston College rejected me yesterday)

    Don't leave it hanging. You applied, go through with it.
