Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone else has gone through this admissions appeal process and could share some insight because I'm not really sure what's going on at this point.
Long story short - I applied to transfer to MSU after having only completed one semester at my university and since I had a low GPA, I was rejected. I wanted to try to appeal the decision though because I improved my GPA from 2.5 (what they originally judged me on) to a 3.25. My first semester GPA was really low because I got a pretty bad grade in one of my classes. Although I couldn't include it in my appeal letter because I literally just finished retaking the class I originally did poorly in, I have further improved my GPA to 3.5.
I sent MSU an appeal letter, indicating my improved grades and intention to retake the class, as well as my updated transcript in early May after my second semester grades were available. As of today, I have yet to hear anything from them. According to someone I talked to over the phone from MSU admissions, they were making decisions about appeals on June 25th or 26th, I believe. Should I expect to get some sort of correspondence from them? Or perhaps they will update my status on the application site?
I would love to hear about your stories/experiences! :)
