    I got accepted too. My stats: H.S. GPA: 4.95/5.00(I am int'l), College GPA:3.67/4.00, SAT - 1900. I was classified as non-pensylvania resident. My intended major is Economics, School - College of liberal arts.

    Also, If they counted 28 transferrable credits towards my degree, how many years will I be studying there? I guess, 3 yrs instead of 4. I need some feedbacks.

    And one more question, If I got accepted to Purdue's college of management too, which one would be better for my major?

    How long did it take to hear back from them after you applied? I'm out of state by the way.
  • Angiecr22Angiecr22 Registered User Posts: 18 New Member
    Good question! I wanna know too!
  • BobWit02BobWit02 Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    Hey guys,

    I am still waiting, with a 3.6 GPA from Pitt and then a 3.94 from Lock Haven.

    Did you have to send in your Fall 2009 grades before they sent you their decision? Or did they just make me do that?

    And how long did it take for them to get back to you?

    Accepted: Smeal College of Business
    SAT:1800 GPA: 3.9
    Really Good EC's

    There is no specific time that the college takes to notify you of acceptance. Some of my friends were accepted within two weeks, some of us waited two/three months. I was accepted mid January and applied in late October.

    I applied November 2nd to the college of engineering and I got my acceptance letter on November 14th.
    my GPA is a 4.0
    and my SAT scores are:
    C.Reading: 570

    My best friends dad is a guidance counselor at our school and he called asking why his daughter hadn't heard back yet when she applied in October. The admissions office told him they generally accepted the "shoe-ins" and decline those who don't have a chance as soon as they can. The people that wait the longest to hear back are usually the ones who are borderline or may have to start a summer session. They wait longer for the people that are borderline because in time people turn down their offers to Penn State, opening more spots the university can offer to other applicants. My friend ended up getting the letter saying she has to go to the summer session, but she also applied for Pre-vet which is very competitive at University Park. You shouldn't have to wait much longer to hear back.
