    Has anyone heard anything from CalArts? Seems like it's getting pretty late.

    S knows a classmate who was accepted at CalArts a few weeks ago. (S didn't apply/audition there, so no first-hand knowledge.)

    @username231 We are also waiting on CalArts. I am honestly assuming it is a no, since my D does have a friend who was accepted and I see a number of posts on an accepted students facebook page. I just wish they would make it official. They are the last one we are waiting on.

    @CBSQandA - sorry for the delay, my D just informed me that she was accepted to Northeastern's international program. So fall semester would probably be Canada. Hmmmm.....still waiting on Merit Scholarship aid offer, but not super thrilled about the fall semester being out of USA at this time.

    Our State Flagship University just made an announcement that they are moving all of the summer classes online. They will determine within the next few weeks (I’m guessing by the end of April beginning of May) about Fall term.

    I watched Cuomo’s Covid19 briefing today, and one of the models indicated the virus would still be an issue, though not as severe, in August. If that model holds true, I cannot imagine D would go back to NYC for her sophomore year on time.

    Wow @yellahamma - really? I will need to go watch that, thanks.

    Yep, @CaMom13. The model showed the peak in the next month or so and the number of new cases leveled through the summer but were not at zero. And, I was wondering if states whose COVID19 models were skewed right would want an influx of students that were not coming from areas with the same model.

    @yellahamma - I watched the briefing, thanks. I love that he includes real data - it almost makes you cry how informative he is. My personal perspective - I know the arc of an epidemic in one area generally occurs over 2-3 months. Exreme social distancing and flattening the curve extends that arc. I think what that NY model is showing is exactly what you're saying - there's a primary curve and that once that is over and you "reopen for business" you get subsequent arcs deriving from the non-static population pool being exposed. I don't know if the NY model shown includes ongoing social distancing or assumes NY will be back to normal operations once the worst is over. The Gates IHME model for mortality was very interesting because it levels off (near zero slope) for the nation as a whole in July with NY leveling off sooner - more like the end of May / beginning of June. So NY's curve goes between March and June but other parts of the country that are just experiencing the beginnings of the virus will go on for another month or more. I am not counting Fall semester out yet - especially as NY is ahead of the curve - but I definitely see where the schools would simply not want to take the chance of being the site of another outbreak. Oh my.

    @username231 My D is on the accepted students group chat for FTVC. All this info is from her, so take my numbers with a grain of salt, as she is not always the most detail orientated person....She thinks there were originally 24 of them on the chat. She says four have told the group they have declined their spots. Of the 20 left she thinks roughly 10 have accepted their spots and 10 are still undecided. She was told that the goal class size is "more than 18 but less than 30". She says no one, in the discussions she has been in on, has asked the director about the waitlist, or how many students were actually accepted, so she has no info on when they might actually move to the waitlist. No one new has joined their group so far as a waitlist contact.
    I know that isn't much help, but to me those numbers sound like at least a few will be offered spots off the waitlist.

    @username231, for what it's worth, two years ago my D was offered a spot from the Pace FTVC waitlist on May 1, decision day. They said at the time that a lot of people had waited til the last day to decline. So their waitlist DOES move.

    @sagezinnia

    So sorry to hear about your job. Finance plays a big part in this decision. I hope you get the response you want and need.

    And it has been very quiet on here. I think so many are trying to weigh their options and some kids want their parents to respect their privacy.

    We too wish a good outcome for everyone.

    @username231 Yes, a couple of students we coach have heard from CalArts. They are negotiating their package right now.

    Hello everyone! My son was recently placed on the waitlist at UMiami. Does anyone know if there is ever much movement there and if there are scholarships offered to WL students? I can't get a hold of anyone at their financial aid office (they're working remotely and only taking emails) and the acting director doesn't seem to know about scholarships. This is a top program and high on his list and would be very tempting if made affordable. With covid-19 we can't visit any of his schools that he's narrowed down...about 4 schools...so frustrating and hard to make a decision if we can't visit the school, classrooms/facilities, etc. Does anyone have experience with this school?
