Penn State was so mean! (Rejection Thread)

<p>Sent me a big thin envelope. I thought for sure "Oh man! Awesome! I must've been accepted! It's big!"</p>

<p>Not only did I not get in to University Park, but I didn't even get into my second choice Altoona! </p>

<p>So much for the fat envelope = good theory. Got my hopes up.</p>

<p>sorry to hear that nervousashell....i applied to altoona and abington and am waiting to hear back myself</p>

<p>That's cruel. I'm sorry you had to go through that.</p>

<p>how hard is it to get into the branch campuses exactly?</p>

<p>its not too difficult</p>

<p>what were ur stats?</p>

<p>id be a transfer with a 2.6 gpa and a 1280 SAT score from a few years ago</p>

<p>they sent you a big envelope?</p>

<p>thats just bastardly</p>

<p>Damn... does that mean a 3.0 transfer student (me) will face the same fate? Better prepare myself for the worst...</p>

<p>My stats were more than enough for Altoona, so I was particularly surprised. 3.3, 1270/1985 Sats. Maybe their slots filled up?</p>

<p>how late did you apply?</p>

<p>1985 on your SAT?</p>


I sent in my app Dec31 but they didn't get everything till Jan 18.</p>

<p>What Im confused about is my stats shouldve at least got me into Altoona even if UPark was a slight reach stats wise. Yet if everything is going to get filled up by Dec, what's the point of even accepting apps still for those places?</p>

<p>I got 1984 for my SAT. With such a wonderful score, I was accepted into the Inner Party.</p>

<p>Just to clear up for anyone else... the acceptance letters to PSU come in a big envelope and they actually say "Congratulations!" on the envelope... kinda takes a bit of the suspense out of it. I'm sorry you had to go through that though.</p>

<p>really??? i got the same score and was only accepted as a prole</p>

<p>lol, prole. shouldn't you be busy thinking up a revolution or something?</p>

<p>how hard is it go get into Penn State as a undergraduate freshman?</p>

<p>how hard is it to get in if you get recruited for sports?</p>
