I was rejected
Pleasant surprise, son admitted off the waitlist today for Kinesiology!
I believe that’s the first Cal Poly admission off the waitlist I’ve heard of. Congratulations!
Thank you- we were definitely surprised, not expecting it at all! We are in-state, but not local
Yep. Several people on Reddit got off the waitlist as well. Hopefully more come soon!
I wonder if those who received waitlist decisions today from SLO were majority OOS or in state?
For those who signed up for housing and orientation today, did you guys receive a confirmation email from orientation because I received one from housing but not orientation. But my status said complete after I paid.
From memory, your orientation selection is not finalized until like 6/21 ish. So that may be why you didn’t get confirmation, since confirmation will come later.
Did you get an email, or see the change in your portal? Congratulations!
Thank you! He received a nice email welcoming him to the Mustang family with ‘Congratulations!’ in the subject line.
Are they giving you until May 1 to decide? Only asking because my D21 is on the waitlist and visited campus yesterday and now knows she would commit if offered a spot. We did the visit in case they didn’t allow much time to mull it over.
D accepted off waitlist for Food Science in state not local. There was a portal update followed by email a few hours later.
Yes, he has until May 1st to decide, best wishes to your daughter!
Congratulations to all who have been accepted off the waitlist! Has anyone gotten off WL for Business?
I believe I saw one waitlist acceptance to business on the Reddit page
Anyone for CS off the waiting list? Thanks

**Footnote to the %'s above mentioned in the Tribune article: The %'s are NOT acceptance rates. The %'s are calculated on projected enrollment as the numerator post-acceptance.
They don’t factor in yield here and maybe give people the impression that these are the acceptance rates.
Agreed and I seriously thought about editing the % out, but in the end, I didn’t want to edit their news story.
I can delete the %'s if you think I should.
