Rejected post-II yesterday via email. Good luck ya'll!
Nope just straight up axed. No need to worry y'all got an A to a school I much preferred! Good luck everyone!!
Are they expecting a lot of movement after traffic day? I should be hearing back soon after and dont know if that is work for or against me possibly.
Received my FA package today. I was wondering if anybody's package includes more than just a federal loan for 21K a semester? How do we apply for private loans? This obviously does not cover the COA. Sorry if this is a stupid question.
Anyone who interviewed in early/mid February heard back yet?
mine includes a work study which is $1500 a semester
You need to apply for GradPlus and that will be applied after you sign your MPN and everything.
I’m just confused cause it says in the Drexel financial aid website that 99% of students get aid from Drexel itself, maybe it’s just early and they haven’t given out scholarships yet?
Hardly anyone gets scholarships. At least from my experience... they probably actually means loans.
When should I accept the aid (loan)?
Im on a couple of other waitlists, should I accept it right away even though I may attend another school?
You can wait.
Hi, I’m confused. This unsubsidized direct loan.. is that from Drexel? Or grad plus from government? Sorry loan newbie over here
Sorry, @MooberGoober asked if you can wait to “accept” your aid, which you can. If you go to DrexelOne and view your aid it gives the option.
The unsubsidized loan is granted via Drexel. GradPlus you must apply for and you can input how much aid you want and then Drexel approves of that as well. But GradPlus you have to do a separate application.
When do you get your Drexel one login info?
I set up my accounts yesterday.
I just made mine today.
Do they let applicants fill out scholarship info if they havent been accpeted yet? I wont hear for a couple more weeks but see the scholarship deadline is soon and you need an ID and email to submit the first survey page
Did you get an email with instructions to set it up?
Nah no instructions, just go on the login screen and click to set up account
I just went to the screen as well and put in my info.
Hmmm it says there are no accounts waiting for me to pick up. I haven’t gotten my financial aid info just yet.
Never mind it worked. Thanks!
Just interviewed yesterday. I can't believe I haven't even heard back yet. This is beyond ridiculous!
you have to do a separate grad plus loan and that will cover the remaining plus COA
Same. I honestly wonder if my app got lost
I think it’s just the nature of schools like these that get an incredible number of apps. I still haven’t heard anything from a couple schools that I know for a fact are done interviewing.
Has anybody asked about scholarships if you arent accepted til after the deadline? I wont get my decision til the beginning of may and the deadline to submit is this weekend. Would this make me inelegance? Even tho idk if I will even be accepted or not
Has anyone on hold pre-II gotten an II invite yet or a straight up rejection?
I’ve been on pre-II hold since October with nothing.
I'd like to know the answer to this as well.
Just called them again. They said that I should expect to hear back sometime in the next week. Interviewed Jan. 29th!
It was last week
Just checked my account and had a nice scholarship waiting for me!
Did you get an email notifying you as well? Was it the DUCOM scholarship?
Yeah the DUCOM scholarship! And no I just happened to go and look and it was there
Any acceptances off the post-II deferred list recently?
Withdrawing my acceptance here. Were you guys able to get the deposit money back? Do I just email admissions about it or do they automatically refund it once you withdraw?
Just got an email with the following message:
We would like to advise you that there are currently some requirements you must complete in order to finalize your financial aid for the 2018-2019 Academic Year.
To view your outstanding requirements, please view the "Billing + Financial Aid" tab in DrexelOne at Drexel Connect - Error.
To ensure the timely processing of your financial aid, make sure you complete all outstanding requirements within two weeks of this message. Please note that if you do not complete these requirements, it may delay disbursement and/or result in the loss of certain awards.
However, I am currently on the waitlist of some other schools and would like to wait before I accept the loan. What should I do?
Got the same! I'm only accepting all that stuff only if I decide 100% that Drexel is where I want to go.
Is this just accepting your aid award? I didn’t even receive my aid information until july when i matriculated and it was fine. (Also due to a huge error on their end..).
Hell, i haven’t gotten my aid info for next year as a returning student.
You can absolutely wait (if only loans)
So...something interesting happened with my Drexel app. I was on the Document upload section of my online portal today because I wanted to submit an update. I saw a file uploaded there already. I opened it and it was an update letter from someone who was not me. I called the admissions office and they were completely shocked and they removed the file immediately.
Idk if they reviewed it as part of my application. It's been there since December (before I interviewed), but I just never noticed.
Hopefully whoever read your app recognized it wasn’t from you, but that sure sucks for the other person!
My friend called today and apparently the admissions office said the deferred list is now the waitlist. Kind of confused since the email explicitly stated that the deferred list is not the same as the waitlist. Might call tomorrow, stay tuned. For now, the anxiety continues
Attention everyone: I just called Drexel and spoke to Ms.Johnson. I asked in very specific words I asked if you interviewed and got the deferred email are you now on the waitlist? Even though the January email I received says this is not the waitlist?.She responded "
It has now turned in to the waitlist and will remain active until school begins."
I hope this brings a tiny bit of peace of mind.
Well that’s super frustrating. Anyone know how the WL works here? Ranked, unranked?
I was told so please do not quote me that each time a slot is available it is fair game for everyone. But I find it hard to believe they look at 350 people each time. It must be secretly ranked. When I asked Kareem that she said it is privileged
