Application Still Undetermined

<p>Anyone else still waiting? S was trying for Material Science.</p>

<p>Hi! Do you mean Materials Engineering? Sorry your son is still waiting. That is frustating! What are his stats? Have you called admissions?</p>

<p>I'm still waiting for Art & Design, still undetermined. But as I have said in the past, they just got our portfolios a little over two weeks ago and said it would be a two week review, then notification about three weeks after that. I am nervous, anxious, feeling sick to my stomach, but I have to respect the process because they really do know what they are looking for.</p>

<p>I am on pins and needles though.....when I go to check my portal I pray that it still says undetermined because I so don't want to see "Sorry, we don't want you" lol. Crazy huh?</p>

<p>Yes, I meant Materials Engineering. S was waitlisted at MIT
yesterday (in contrast to the 1000s who were rejected), so I think his stats should work for CP.</p>

<p>, if he was waitlisted at MIT.....that is incredible. He must be very well qualified. I hope he gets accepted at CP!</p>

<p>Well, he is one of the 700+ on the waitlist, but it's still a nice thing. The letter made it clear that he belongs at MIT, if space becomes available, which made him feel better about the waitlisting.</p>

<p>I'm with MomofMV. To be undetermined at this point seems odd. I'd call admissions asap to confirm nothing has slipped through the cracks.</p>

<p>Yes, how can a students who is waitlisted at MIT, not get into CP? Would you mind posting your sons stats? My son is in for Materials Engineering. he heard on Feb. 10th I think. Let us know and good luck!</p>

<p>Decision: Waiting to hear</p>

General Comments: Happy to be still in the running (kind of)! Awaiting word from HYPS & UCB too.</p>

<p>Great job squidgerwinks. Not sure why he hasn't been accepted. The materials Engr. dept. is fairly small. Another poster said the cutoff for engineering students was a 4.1, but I saw people with less. His SAT scores are great and you know the subject tests, teacher recs and essays to not count at CP. I wonder if it is about being an international student. Good luck and I am sure he will get into a great school. Maybe UCB is a better match for him. He has such an interesting background.</p>

<p>OK, so the answer to why you are still undetermined is probably that you are an international applicant and that is taking them more time to figure out.</p>

<p>Perhaps, although we're California residents.</p>

<p>Rejected.......sadness. Art & Design</p>

<p>Oh I am so sorry Tornados - I believe you really wanted Cal Poly. I assume though you have other schools you've either been accepted at or are awaiting decisions?</p>

<p>Yes, I was accepted at two others. I am going online now to do housing at one of them. But, this was definitely a blow.</p>

<p>Must not be in God's plan for me though and I need to respect that :o) He never lets me down and always puts me on the right path.</p>

<p>Awwww, heck. :( I know you were hoping for Cal Poly, tornados. I like your attitude and positive spirit, though! I know you'll do well wherever you end up! :)</p>

<p>Thanks 2Leashes, I hope you have a great year and it was nice talking on the forum with you and everyone else.</p>

<p>i think you'll be waitlisted.. i got my cslo rejection letter like 2 weeks ago =(</p>
