    Just got a phone call and they told me i was accepted!

    I went to the candidate visit in the beginning of Feb.

    That was the best phone call i have ever gotten.

    i can't put into words how it feels. :)

    I got a call today too about being accepted. I'm insanely relieved. I'd been checking my email about a thousand times a day - like a crazy person - and then they called today. no email.

    THANK GOD THE WAIT IS OVER.

    I didn't get a packet either. But, I remember Wendy saying that they were preparing it and that it'll take a few weeks.

    Did anyone's interact account change? Mine still says "application complete" under status...I think it's suppose to say admission accepted or something of that nature?

    How long did it take to receive your admission packet? Once you received it, how much time did you have to send in your deposit?
    thanks

    I was at one of the February MCV's, and they told us that they will be holding them in March and April too. So - they aren't done yet. Also, their supplemental application deadline was just last week so I think you still have a chance.

    They have rolling admissions, and I think it has a lot to do with your PCAT score. That's just my guess since your GPA is really good.

    My interview was on Dec.11th and received acceptance call on Dec. 15th so I received my packet about 13 days later. I had to pay my deposit by Jan 15th. Actually, I paid the deposit online. The packet would have your new ID and password that you need when you log into this site.
    The reason I said it might take time at this time is that all processes has been so slow since mid-January. For example, after 1/15, I realized that my file said they still have not received my matriculation aggreement and technical standard sheet. So, I called the admission office. Then, the lady told me they were so busy with just taking care of all the application.
    so, don't be panic. But, I still recommend you to call.

    Thanks for the info comet! :D I just received my acceptance phone call last Thursday, so maybe I still have a week or two to wait for my packet. I'm just so anxious - and very excited. It seems like if I'm not anxiously waiting to hear if I'm accepted, then I'm stalking my mailbox for my acceptance packet. I guess this whole process is helping to teach me a bit of patience.... but I want that packet now! lol

    lol...its all good people! we 're in and thats all that matters- don't stalk your mailbox until for another 10 days or so! hehehe....as for cars, everyone says that the snow makes your car not last as long. is that true for you people from eastcoast/midwest? I have no clue! But I am just gonna buy my car when I get to Illinois, and say bye bye to my car at home = (

    So is anybody gonna start a blog or facebook group or something so we can meet all our future class of 2011 classmates??

    I am from Minnesota so I am used to the salt ware and tare on my car!! Just a FYI, a group has been started on Facebook for all of the Class of 2011!!!! However, there is only 3 of us so far; so if you are on facebook JOIN US!!! Just search " CCP Class of 2011 " It will definately be great to meet others and converse before August comes around!!!

    PS- Has anyone who applied for Fin Aid received an Award Letter yet??

    You won't hear about financial aid until at least after the deadline....and more likely not until the summer. Don't worry though, they generally give all students the full amount (~31000).

    Where are you living-when shool starts? I found this great apt community 2 mins from school and they have full kitchens-great price...I think the 1 bed studios are at $769 right now-they really cater to Midwestern Students-
    I rented there at Versailles.

    I don't think thats enought. i think its 40k-ish for those of us that are dorming.

    btw i can't find that facebook group, maybe you should change the name of the group to something easier to find like "Accepted:Midwestern CCP 2011" and make sure is global?
