do any current students have any experience with this (even though i understand that the fact that needing a petition in the first place makes one way less likely to get in anyway...)
Last year I tried for a petition and it got rejected - took a loooong time for them to evaluate it, so don't worry too much about it. However, that being said - I still got in (woooo Illinois!!!!).
So just because you turn in a petition (and even if it gets rejected) does not mean that you won't get in. Hope that helps!
