    @ USFplease, fellow bull and psych major here, if you still have not heard back call the advisors office. Ask them if a campus change would help, this happened to me. I changed my campus to St. Pete, decided to suck it up and go my first semester there. After your first semester you can fill out a change of campus form and it will make you a Tampa student. However for me, I found the psych classes at tampa had sometimes 200 people in them, St. Pete, never has more than 40-50. Four years later I'm graduating from St. Pete USF, LOVE THIS CAMPUS. But like I said, if getting in is super important to you, you can go to a diff campus for one semester. Hope this helps!

    I was accepted to USF for Fall 2014 and had a few questions for everyone.. I know they say to apply for housing asap but there has been a problem with the site not letting me apply, how quick does housing fill up? Which is the best dorm to stay at for a transfer student, I prefer a 4 person apartment on campus? And also, is there a way I can accept my admission to USF or how does that work? Thank you!
