Acceptance help?

Hey everyone, so i sent my application on Oct. 31 and I am still waiting for a response back. But for some stupid reason I applied to SAS, School of Bio/enviro, and PHARM. Now I have no idea why i applied to pharmacy because my stats aren't that good (SAT:1700, GPA: 3.27 UW). My application says "in progress" for all of them. Do you think I'll hear back later for SAS and Bio since I applied to Pharm? (which is a guarantee rejection)...

And anyone who has been accepted into Rutgers, how long did you have to wait for a response? I really want to hear back from Rutgers!

    You'll hear back from each of them separately - applying to Pharmacy shouldn't affect the rate at which the other two respond.

    I sent in my application on the same day (Oct. 31) and got a reply in the first/second week of November, but my stats were well above the reach for SAS and RBS (I'm still waiting on Pharmacy). I think they will be waiting to get other applications before they'll decide on yours, but getting the application in early is a good start.

    You will hear from SAS and SEBS first and looks like you have a pretty good chance of getting accepted. Applying to the pharmacy school will not slow down the acceptance to the other schools so you don't need to worry about it.

    Now because you stats are not excellent it will take them a little longer to accept you since they want to see the applicant pool. You should have a plan B just in case.

    Good luck!!

    My son applies to SAS and RBS last year and he heard from SAS first and it took them another 2 weeks to accept him to RBS.

    Hey I was wondering, how big of a pool of applicants would I have to wait to until I'm considered? Do u think maybe a decision in early December? Or would they compare me to an even larger pool, like in January?

    yeah i applied on Oct 25th and still have not gotten a reply back.

    i have a 3.05 gpa
    1800 sat score
