    My D was also offered on the spot acceptance at Unifieds (12th) and received the email a few days later. The offical COPA letter arrived a few weeks later. Keep in mind that the adjudicator at Unifieds may have been completely in the dark as to how many deposit checks the school received that weekend. Admissions and COPA are two separate entities. This is clear when several schools make offers and say, "But this is contingent on your acceptance to the college..."
    Regarding kids still getting acceptances...ONLY the 20 girl slots have been filled. Boys out there are still OK and IMHO should be calling for more scholarship $$ because they need boys!

    Isn't it their business to know this information? Other schools don't have this problem.

    I don't think so because checks are sent to admissions not COPA and if they all arrived on that weekend the office wouldn't have been processing until Monday so noone would have known on Saturday and Sunday. Don't get me wrong, I'm super frustrated about what happened because some people had many if not all eggs in the PP basket and that is a total disappointment, but I'm just saying that I can see HOW it may have happened. I do think PP's reputation will be severely negatively affected by this moving forward.

    S got letter via US Mail today that he was accepted to PPU for MT with small merit scholarship. He's already committed to Rider, so it is a moot point, but this may signal some movement at least for MT boys...

    Hello! I am a current acting major at Point Park, and I wanted to say first off that I am terribly sorry for the experiences that some people on this thread are having. For the past few years, PPU has kind of messed up the acceptance/waitlist process (two years ago, they sent acceptance letters to those on the waitlist as well as those who were originally accepted, and last year they under-accepted acting majors and were holding auditions in July). I can confirm that as of a few weeks ago, they were still auditioning for MT boys to be accepted, but MT girls were only auditioning for the waitlist. This being said, Point Park is weird, but (at least the faculty I've had in my two years being there), they don't view students as being "replaceable". I hope everything works out. If anyone has any questions, I'd be more than happy to answer to the best of my ability!

    My Daughter is still on the accepted student wait list. We received a letter last week giving us 3 options. She can go to PP this Fall for Theatre....she can defer to Fall 2013 for Musical Theatre - will not have to re-audition, keeping scholarship the same with $2,000.00 extra scholarship money or stay on the wait list until August and if she does not get off the wait list, the deposit will be refunded. I just figured everyone would want an update on the situation.
