    Wait for your letter, there should also be an email sent with a video from Pitt. Check your spam folder.

    @blank2019 unless Pitt has dramatically changed this year, the answer is no. They do not offer merit $$ to NMSF or NMF. However, if your SAT or SAT are competitive you could be in the running for merit.

    I checked today (I’ve been checking non stop since I applied 8/1) and my buttons have changed!! Super anxious.

    Mine said “you don’t not have any pending app.” For the longest time.

    Hi everyone, I a, seeing everyone mention an "app" where they can see accept and decline buttons and I wanted to know what app you are talking about? I have the website where I applied but it only updated me that my SRAR were sent and when I update the information on my account. Is there another app? If it is the Pitt PS Mobile app, how do you log in? Because it asks for a username and password and if you don't have it, it asks for information that I don't have yet. If anyone could help me out I would be greatly appreciative, I would hate to miss out on accepting or decking my application. Thank you!

    @Julclergpls44455 Is this something you heard from admissions directly? D submitted her app through the common app and hasn't received any email confirmation yet. She even emailed admissions to verify about her application and also asked about the SRAR submission - they just sent her a link for the SRAR but never responded to her question about whether or not her application was received. A little frustrating...

    @hailtopitt1787 Can you clarify the status of applications submitted on the Common App? Are you having technical difficulties with all apps submitted that way, or is it just slower? Should resubmitting on a alternate platform be considered? My son has not received any verification that his application has been received (sent 9/9) and the subsequent link to answer the short answer essay questions. He is really hoping for merit aid so had intended to have it all wrapped up by now. Any advice? I did call the office last week and was told that admissions is working on the technical problem and hoping to start to process those applications soon, but she could not give any timeframe. Thanks for your help.

    Has anyone who has been accepted or seen the "buttons" applied using common app and not the Pitt specific or collation app? Has anyone who applied via the common app even got a verification email or link to the portal, and if so, how long did it take to get that? I am wondering if all common apps are stuck in limbo. Sounds like maybe they are.

    My D applied via Common App on 09/11/2018 and we heard for all other colleges except Upitt. When I called today the undergraduate admission says they are not able to import Common App folks applications and do not know when that will be fixed. This is very frustrating and does not help at all. Some body in IT should responsible for this mess.

    @alamohanna the log-in credentials for the Pitt Mobile app are the same as the one you use for the pitt application portal. It looks like its sent a few business days after they receive the application. Good luck!
