California Freshmen waiting in misery to hear from Sonoma State....

Daughter has a 3.78 GPA and 28 on ACTs and while she could get into other colleges has her heart set on Sonoma State due to smaller size and close proximity to family as well as specializing in a program she is interested in. Her friends are also going which is another huge plus.

We have heard NOTHING–her online portal/profile sits static with “We process applications in the order we receive them, your file is currently under review.” She checks it several times a day. It’s become an obsession. It’s become our nightmare. I mean, this is a kid who could’ve gone most anywhere but set her sights on this slow to respond college and it’s been hell for us.

To add salt into the wound, her two friends who also applied --later than she did, and who have lower scores than she does have already heard they are in and are making dorm/orientation plans – yet there her profile sits with, “…your file is currently under review.” Are any other families going thru this?

We had trouble with the ACT website so we were worried this might be the issue. I tried emailing the admissions coordinator listed by her alphabet letter early this week and nothing…crickets chirp (I may write a letter of complaint to administration if I don’t hear anything, as that’s just unprofessional). I plan on calling if I don’t hear by early next week despite daughters misgivings.

Our usually happy Daughter, who works so hard and who fights a daily battle with learning disabilities, anxiety and low self esteem, is in misery and a dark cloud has settled over our family life. I recently finished up with a second degree in an impacted major out of SF State and I heard about my general admission by end of January and SF State is bigger and harder to get into so what’s the flip with Sonoma State? Any experience or words of advice out there?

Does the portal show receipt of the ACT scores? I would call admissions to make sure everything is in order.

Current SSU student; sometimes our offices can be extremely slow with things-getting paid is a nightmare. From her stats, she seems like a great candidate to get in, so I wouldn’t be too worried on tha part.

I would call the admissions office for sure! One of my friends didn’t get in until last week, so your daughter isn’t the only one!
