Hey Everyone!

Who's waiting to hear from NOVA? Deposits were due yesterday so we should be getting a call or letter any day now right? I wonder if they call if you DON'T get in...

Good luck to all :) Keep everyone posted!

They called me on Wednesday. So I'm guessing this means I'm waitlisted and if those who were accepted don't pay there deposit seats will open up and hopefully I can get in.

First you say they called you and they told you you got in...now you say that your waitlisted.

When did you interview? I remember them telling me at my interview that they were going to meet up Feb.22 (thursday) so i'm just confused at the whole situation.

I really hope they aren't full :(

Ok..I just called them and they told me I've been accepted but they are waiting on people to make their deposits first...I asked her if it was a waitlist and she said yes...she said alot of people are in my position (around 80). She also said that those people were ranked.

Gosh I hope I'm high up on that list...I wan't Nova so bad!

I got a message at home yesterday and called back today. I was accepted, but she wanted to know if I wanted the position right there on the phone. I said whoa lady, give me a second to breathe. Anyway, they are very full, but it seems they do have some "non-waitlisted" positions left. I more than likely will turn this one down.

I got a call yesterday, they told me I was accepted and asked if I was still interested. I said yes and they said they would send me something in the mail. I interviewed on Feb.8...

does anyone know the difference between "alternate" and "wait-list" status?.. which one is it better to be included in?

That's the EXACT same thing they told me....I asked her if this was a waitlist and she said YES...I dont know why they would word it like that...they shouldve just said "ur on a waitlist".

I also talked to Su-Ann and she said "you're on the waitlist, NOT the alternate list, which is good"....not really sure what that means but whatever.

They told me all 105 seats were full and they're waiting for deposits.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst :)

u cant accept somebody and then say wait in line. that's not organized. i couldn't imagine what it would be like if i had no other schools to choose from. nova, you're *****s. if you get more deposits than expected (over 105), deal with it. it's either waitlist or accepted.

so being on the waitlist is different from being an alternate? what school has 2 types of lists? how in the world does that work out? i found out i was an alternate and figured it was their terminology for a waitlist. so being an alternate is worse than being waitlisted? that sucks!!
