    Hey everyone,
    I got accepted into CALS. For all of you who got a grade that was lower than what they expected you to get, don't be worried. I had to get at least a B in all my classes, but I got a B- in chemistry last quarter. Good luck!

    Congrats! Really good to hear considering I also got a B- in chemistry and was wondering if that was why my response was being delayed. But do you mind sharing when did you have all of your materials checked off and if your financial aid stuff said ordered before you got your response ?

    What does it mean if all my financial stuff says “initiated”?
  • Steglitz90Steglitz90 Registered User Posts: 193 Junior Member
    @apcole Good to know about the acceptance despite the B- in chem. My S was just accepted into CALS (Envir Sci) today, but is worried his Chem II grade may be a C+/B- (it's hard to tell b/c there will be some sort of curve, but who knows what that will be). He is hoping that this won't pull his acceptance as he has withdrawn from his current school based on Cornell's admission.

    Wanted to let everyone know about financial aid packages this year. I just got mine and they were about 3,000 dollars more expensive than the online calculator so it's really accurate! Hope this helps any of you still waiting to hear back!

    Are there any CALS GTs who have not heard yet?
  • apcoleapcole Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
    @dbap819, all my materials were checked off by April 13th (I had to wait a while for my midterm report to go through). I got my financial aid notification two days after I was told that I was accepted. I hope this helps.

    @luckybell - How did you get notified of your FA? Was it in your packet OR was it online?

    My decision will be available tomorrow at 10 am. I'm so nervous!

    Our contact at the FA office told us that the FA packages go out once a week on Wednesdays.

    Haven’t heard back anything... should I take it as rejection now?
  • cocoa801cocoa801 Registered User Posts: 7 New Member
    I thought GTs are supposed to hear back earlier than regular ones but I was told that my material was incomplete, and then it wasn't shown as complete until 4/20, so now I still haven't heard back anything yet...

    Am also wondering, should I call and ask??? Because my current school year is almost over and I really need to figure out my storage and shipment and stuff...

    Anyone has a similar case..??
