Just received an interview invite on Thursday is this normal? Also will probably decline since I’ve fully committed to another school and have a lease signed already

They like to make sure the waitlist is full. Congrats on moving forward elsewhere!
 
Is there anything accepted students should be doing by now other than the new student checklist and FAFSA? I know Castlebranch opens tomorrow to submit vaccinations and stuff.
 
My daughter just withdrew her acceptance
She really liked the school and got $30k in scholarships but she was accepted at MD school
Good luck to everyone

You’re chilling, you’ll be getting plenty of emails/reminders from admissions regarding stuff that’s due and dates. Do the stuff on castle branch. Once you get access to Pulse there will be on boarding stuff to do, but don’t worry about that until you have to 😃

Anyone know how long it took them to get assigned Pulse credentials after paying the seat deposit?

Should come middle to end of June if I remember correctly. Could vary though depending on how admissions is doing it, but all accepted with deposits paid will get access at the same time.

Which pulse credentials are we still missing? I’ve been able to log into pulse, outlook, etc.

Also, does anyone know how to link the outlook email to the mail app on an iPhone or iPad? I tried doing it through outlook but it says that my Microsoft account doesn’t exist. I tried both the email and the SSO.

Do you have to create the castle branch account with your student email? Or can I use my personal and have the info sent to DMU?

As long as you use your student ID number when it asks you for it and follow the instructions from the email that was sent to your DMU email, I am pretty sure you can use your personal email for the castlebranch portal.
 
This might be a dumb question but I’ve seen two different addresses for DMU, one in Des Moines and one in west Des Moines. What’s the main campus address for the DO students? Do you have to go to both addresses or just one? Thanks

Students accepted off the WL - did you receive a text before asking if you were still interested in attending?
 
sounds to me like they're working through the WL. good luck to everyone!
 
Received text asking if I’m still interested. Currently waitlisted on 2Q
 
Does anyone know or have experience on DMU's policies on requesting a one year deferral after acceptance? I was accepted early in the cycle, and this would not be to finish a graduate degree or to pursue some professional experience: this would simply be to defer a year for personal reasons. If anyone knows or have experience in this regard please let me know!

Call admissions and tell them your situation. They’re all very nice and super helpful.
 
I know there's a facebook group for incoming students but is there also a groupme or anything? sorry if I missed it earlier this thread!
 
Just received an interview invite today. Isn't July a little late in the cycle?
