How long after it says "your application is complete, the colleges listed will contact you shortly" do you receive a decision

    Idk and this frustrating me! Did any of your college links disappear on your home page though? Hunter did for me...

    If you don't mind me asking, but did you get rejected?

    I just found a forum on this same subject from last year, 2-27-2015, (member, Roosey) "So i discovered something in the CUNY portal, when you log in and see "College Links" if one of the colleges you applied to isn't there, that means you got rejected. Cause Queens disappeared for me a few days ago and i just got an email saying they rejected me"

    In my case, my portal is telling me that I will "receive notification from ONLY ONE college choice shortly" and the link for York has disappeared. When I called the hotline, it basically just repeated the same message, but only mentioned that I'll get an answer from Hunter. So it looks like if a link is gone, you're not in, if the link is still there, you're in?

    I can't believe Hunter would accept me, with a 35% acceptance rate and a top 50 regional-North ranking, but York would reject me, with a 65% acceptance rate and NO ranking to speak of. What is happening!?! I really don't want to take a bus and a train and a walk to class and back when I could just take a nice 15 min bike ride in my neighborhood. But I guess I'm grateful to have gotten in at all? I'm so confused. I graduated in the top 1% of my public HS, and my SAT was 2020, and I have a degree from Vassar... and York rejected me? YORK?

    More on my situation: I already have a degree from Vassar, I'm switching career paths and going for my second degree so technically I'm a transfer student. Only 3 CUNYs have BSN programs, I applied to York as a first choice (it's in walking distance from me) and Hunter (45 min trek away) just to give myself options.

    Its been a week since my status has changed to 'will contact you shortly' and I still havent heard anything from anyone. I called the hotline and they said my first choice (Baruch) has made a decision already. So maybe 2 weeks.
  • lama101lama101 Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
    @msrbl08 i called the hotline and they said they would contact people as early as this week or the second week of april the latest.
    i just got my result and I applied January 20th.

    Chances are that you have been accepted to City College.
