Hi everyone. I did not find any thread about the Transfer student waitlisted entering in 2020 at Pomona College so, I created this thread so we can be connected. Feel free to share your experience.
Hey! still waiting for responses from Pomona, really anxious about it. I was hoping we would have heard sooner.
I have a question. Pomona sent out two of the same email saying to reply to the email if you’re still interested in the waitlist. I replied on 4/13, but did not reply for the second email. Do you think I am still considered for the waitlist or I am not anymore because I did not email them within two weeks of the second email? Thanks
@stellesonoma I am still waiting on the response. I am unsure if they release responses for any transfer student yet but I am also on waiting.
@kchoung28 I will advise you to respond to the second email too. Actually, you don’t have to if you updated them within the past two weeks prior to the reception of the email with the intent to remain on the waitlist. I hope this was helpful.
@Guru123 I hadn’t sent an email within the past two weeks so I ended up emailing them. Thank you! Also, did you guys SIR to other colleges?
@kchoung28 Me personally I did not. Do you guys know a transfer student who got off the waitlist??
Hey guys! I actually got a call last friday and they offered me a spot. Good luck to everyone!!!
*feel free to ask me any questions if you have any
Hi - Are you on transfer waitlist? And transfer from community college? Can you please share a lit about the phone conversation if it’s possible? Did you get an email follow up as well for the offer? @Sunflower012
@Sunflower012 Congratulations!!! I wonder if they will at least email and let us know if we were rejected or not… I was unaware that they would be sending out phone calls for acceptances? that seems a bit random but its already June 10th so I don’t think I’ll rely too heavily on Pomona. I already committed to UC Berkeley, but it would’ve been nice to see some options.
Yeah, I was on the transfer waitlist. I transferred from USC. I just got a call and they asked me if someone had reached out to me to let me know that they were offering me a spot. I said no and they asked if I was still interested. I said yes and they told me why they were accepting me and that my portal would change w/in 24 hrs. @notmatter
Hi there! Thanks so much for sharing! I am waitlisted still and super anxious now. Could you please share a little more about how you’ve been following up through out the process? Any advise if possible? Also, I wonder if you know the reply deadline for the first wave off the wl? Thanks so much! ! !

Hey @daisyz ! Yeah. I would make sure to send any updates with grades, summer plans, etc or at least a letter explaining your continued interest. And I don’t know if they have a deadline for the first wave so I can’t help you there ?. Good luck!!
