    @opallady,

    We apologize for delays with processing the Common Application. Please note that this delay will NOT impact committee decisions. We recognize the original date of application submission no matter when the application is processed. We anticipate fully processing the students who have applied via the Common Application by the end of the week. This does not mean that they will be reviewed by committee yet, although that’s very soon, but they should receive confirmation of their completed application via email and if they call with questions, our staff will be able to see their application and are ready to help.

    Best,
    A Pitt Admissions Staffer

    My daughter applied yesterday. For those of you who already applied, how long did it take until you received your email with username that you can use in the mobile app?

    Hi everyone, I just got accepted into the school of Nursing! They sent me the email at 1:45pm today and I also received the letter in the mail. I applied 9/14 for anyone wondering.

    @MominPA2017 D19 submitted her application on 9/8 and she received her e-mail with log-in on 9/12. She just checked the app and no decision yet.

    i applied on one of the first days the application came out, around august 2nd. still haven't heard back. it says complete on the website and "no pending application" on the mobile app but people who have applied much later than me are hearing back. I applied to dietrich with the honors supplements. I called the admissions office and they said it was in committee but I just hope I hear back soon so I can stop stressing

    Twin S19 and D19 submitted apps on 8/17 and 8/21. Just now received acceptance letters that also pre-admitted them both to their respective Pitt Grad schools. They are surprised and happy.

    @r200104, Don’t lose hope - it’s not a bad sign that you haven’t heard yet. We have just started sending out decisions and are working hard to get everyone a decision as quickly as we can. Good luck!

    Congrats @lola3253! This kind of gave me anxiety because I plan on applying tomorrow for nursing :) Did you mention you extracuriculars/ leadership in your application anywhere?

    @hailtopitt1787 Just out of curiosity, why does PITT not take account extracurriculars/ leadership in the application process?

  • hailtopitt1787hailtopitt1787 College Rep 2015 replies2 threads Senior Member
    @G_2019LAG, It's not that we don't take those factors into account - we just encourage students to weave their most meaningful extracurricular/leadership experiences into their Short Answer Question responses rather than sending us a list. We want a more in-depth picture of how these experiences shaped you - it helps the Admissions Committee get to know you better. I hope that helps clarify!

    Good luck,

    @drings was their application completed on the 4th or did they only submit on that day?

    she submitted her app on that day, and got the confirmation email 2 days later. Official transcript not sent from school yet. SAT scores were submitted.

    Anyone know what the time frame is for notification of acceptance to the honors college? Does that come with the acceptance letter or are students notified later?
