i have been awpa for 2 months. The last batch went out a while ago, so if you did not get a formal acceptance then-- you will get your letter on a case by case basis depending on your rank on that list. (I.E. when someone withdraws thier deposit). Since the SIU deposit is so low..100bucks, alot of people I hear hang on to the depost well beyond for a long time.
Someone from admissions told me that one year they had 2 or 3 no-shows on the first day of class (how rude not to withdraw!). So they quickly called up people the day classes started and enrolled them. I hope thats not the case.
Admissions told me they usually get thru the whole AWPA list, but some years the few people ranked lowest do not get a spot.
Its a wierd state of limbo to be in!
I really liked SIU so I hope i get a formal offer soon.
I've also had a AWPA for a little over 2 months. I was told (or so I thought) that another "batch" was suppossed to go out at the end of march and then the case by case procedure ensues. This is somewhat confusing...
Well, I think if they sent out letters from the 03/30/04 admissions meeting they would have arrived by now. I'll keep my fingers crossed from now through the summer months!(that sure seems like a long time !) Good luck to everyone and keep us posted.
hey i thought i'd post this ? on this thread since its about Southern Il...anyway, i was looking on their website and couldn't find info about if it was cheaper / easier to get into for instate people. what's the word? is it cheaper and/or easier to get accepted if i am instate?
SIU will accept only IL residents for the MD program and very few out of state for their MD/JD program. No MD/PhD program at SIU however. These facts are from Erin Graham, director of admission, who came to talk at our school a couple of weeks ago.
I know a person that was accepted and they had an orientation on Friday, 4/16. Obviously the class is not full yet but they apparently give an orientation at this point to the ones who have committed. Maybe some will drop after the orintation and open up even more spots. The person I talked to said that there was less than 50 people there so that leaves a lot open still.
