    Did your D love it at UofAZ? Hoping she got positive results! My D auditioned there last year and decided not to go back for a second audition after she did not get in. She did the first audition which had 105 or so. It was crazy and long. Keep us posted on your journey!

    Thanks! She did love it. How long after your D audition did she here from them? They said Nov, Dec. Which I guess gives enough time to decide if she will attend again in January. Its only been a week 1/2 and it already feels like forever :)

    @adancepath Those invited to attend got personal phone calls from the department and you can look at last years thread but I think it was under 2 weeks when calls were made. If she has already applied and been accepted to the school then you can also watch her arts application page which will change status/update to something else when the letters are mailed out and then a few days later update again with the decision.

    The waiting is definitely the hardest part!! Hang in there!

    Hello! We did the University of Arizona Sept audition. Saw a post on social media yesterday that a girl was accepted. Not sure if you have heard anything yet? We have not.

    I know last year that personal calls were made to those accepted. The dancers who were invited received personal phone calls at about the 2 week mark. My D also did a Sept audition and audition results were snail mailed to arrive about 3-4 weeks after the audition and were categorized by invitation, potential invitation (waitlist) or rejection please try again. You will also see the portal have a status change when the letters go in the mail so keep checking that regularly. The waiting is the hardest part!!

    Yes, I agree. It isn't the top of her list but after all these auditions it would be nice to get some feedback!

    @emilyhuntnelson hi! Any word from the first round of uofa auditions? If I understood @NavigatingMom correctly at this point we would just be waiting for a possible accept or no in the mail. Funny thing is I have only seen 3 acceptances on social media. 1 girl and 2 boys. Have you heard anything else? They did say at the Jazz showcase that letters would come nov/dec but I'm wondering if people get accepted at that time or only in the 2 weeks after the audition and if letters are only the possible and nos. My dd is so chill I need to be more patient! Happy Halloween!

    On another forum, there was a dancer at the jazz showcase who got a call from Mrs Lowe 2 days after with acceptance. She said that at the Q & A this year they were told that Dec is approximate mailing date. FYI

    The waiting is terrible! Does anyone have an update? My DD auditioned in September and they told us everyone should know by the first week of November. Post from last year said that the student’s status will change on the portal before they would be notified. Checking every few hours... ugh!!!

    Auditioned in September. At the Q&A they said November notification but website says December. She has been accepted into the university and the honors college. Her portal still just says "attended" for the audition status. The waiting is the worst! Especially since they said it is a longer than usual timeframe as the Showcase happens after the September audition and they spend so much time working on prep for that.

    @adancepath my daughter is adamant that in the meeting they told them it would come by letter in November. My guess is those acceptances on social media are possibly scholarship offers? My daughter checked the portal today and nothing has changed. I'm wondering if they actually do review dancers by their video submissions as well? Today we got an email "Welcome to the College of Fine Arts"- so I thought maybe... but I think it is a general email for the school... She looked on the portal and there is no update... Did you get the same email?

    Good luck to all of your dancers . My dancer is @ u of Arizona now as a freshman and loves it so much. She auditioned at Jazz showcase with Mono. I offered to see about rescheduling but she was determined. We went and she felt it wasn’t her best due to muscle/body fatigue w mono. She received a rejection letter two weeks later. It was her first choice. She had a full tuition scholarship , and acceptance into honors program as well so she chose to request a private audition. She auditioned in class with the students for 2 days in February and received a call 1 week later from Melissa
    Lowe accepting her into the program. It so happened we were at a competition with her dance company and having lunch with her teachers when she called. Best lunch ever . She loves it so much at u of a .

    @emilyhuntnelson we recieved the email too and got excited, but then noticed it says no major declared. So must just be a general email. I went ahead and booked a hotel for the January audition just in case! I am interested to know about these private auditions in classes..since you can only audition twice I wonder if the private audition is better then the January audition?

    @adancepath too funny! Such a long wait! My D auditioned this weekend at George Mason and absolutely loved it. They said we would get letters in 2 weeks! I was like "wow, that is FAST!" Great program! It moved to top two- so we shall see!!!!

    Sorry to take this thread off topic for a minute, but @emilyhuntnelson does your DD have academic acceptance to GM yet? It almost sounded like that would come with results of dance audition, but I wasn’t clear on that. Thanks!
