    Hey guys, Applying to CAS as well

    My stats:
    HS: GPA 3.8 Unweighted
    Sat/Act: 1220 (but I've heard they don't care past the first year)
    2x Internetworking State Champion
    FBLA Business State Finalist
    Went to the Statewide Governor's School Program (if that matters)


    College:
    Virginia Tech's Honors College (In-state)
    GPA: 3.6 (I had one C that destroyed my gpa but was first semester and haven't gotten less than an A- in any other class)
    (52 credits total , currently enrolled in 21)
    All A's on midterm report
    Involved in business Clubs
    lots of relevant work experience.
    Waitlisted last time with a 3.3 first semester

    I know that the application process is an order of magnitude harder in the spring so I'm honestly just anticipating it to roll over to fall. But hey, I'd get two application chances for the price of one. 🤷‍♂️

    Congrats!! @Rjlake33 I'm really sad that receiving the rejection letter, I get 3.7 GPA from a top 40 university, VA residence. I'll try for the fall semester.

    @Spring2020Mathhh Thanks man. If it's one thing that I've learned from this process is that nothing is predictable no matter what statistics exist out there. I had no intention on actually going there in the spring. I assumed that spring admission is basically impossible and I only applied so it would roll over to the fall and I wouldn't have to do it over two semesters.

    Am I the only one surprised about the timing of it though? They always post decisions on the last Friday of the month but instead they chose the third Thursday. Also there's no update to the transfer blog or acknowledgment on any social media that anyone was accepted.
