    I applied as a Political Science major with a 1420/2200, a 4.47, and some great ECs....and my brother goes to UConn! I figured it would be a safety school for me but does the fact that I haven't heard anything yet mean I am most likely being rejected/wait-listed?

    I really don't think that everyone who hasn't heard yet is going to be rejected/waitlisted.

    Has anyone other than the one person on here been accepted to the ACES program undecided. I read that that is is one third of the class so I am assuming they will roll those out on saturday? I really do not think they are finished notifying people of acceptances and the rest are being rejected..that would just be cruel!!

    I just spoke with admissions and was told the decision/notification process officially starts today and will continue for the next several weeks. So there's a chance we won't find out for a few weeks.

    I say good luck to them and good to you all!!! It has to be a very busy time at all college admissions offices and we will all be hearing in the near future. I was told that the whole college process was a difficult one but I have to say that it must also be very difficult for the colleges who have to go through 38,000 applications with a fine tooth comb!
    Fingers crossed for you all:))

    As frustrating as it is, I'm relieved to hear they're taking their time to review each application. My D probably wouldn't have a chance if they didn't.
  • miesha5miesha5 Registered User Posts: 202 Junior Member
    well I hope you guys are right and indeed thats what they are doing because it would be a shame if they didn't give every single kid a fair chance sorry for the rant its been a very long process for my D i only have one she is and amazing kid like all of you I'm sure she has had a tough time with this whole thing and I feel terrible for her I want her to be able to relax a bit and enjoy her last few months with her friends buts she's a wreck sorry guys

    If you look on the site it actually says "beginning March 1st", I think those who have heard already are ahead of plan.
  • hannahleihannahlei Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    @meisha5 I couldn't agree more! It's been so incredibly stressful on all of the kids! I don't remember it being like this when I went through the process. It's really sad to watch them go through it.

    My son was admitted two weeks ago via online and letter came in Monday. UCONN does use a holistic approach in accepting students. My son's SAT were not strong 1690 CR 550 M 610 and he told me spent no time writing something no one was going to read.

    Just wanted no one to lose faith in getting into UCONN.
