I haven't heard anything from a few schools, have interviewed at 1 school pre-dec and heard nothing, and rejected from others.

Is it worth it to send a letter of intent to schools, even if I haven't heard anything from them?

For schools you haven’t interviewed with, you could send a letter of interest and express your desire for the opportunity to interview.

and for the school you interviewed at you can send a letter of intent if it’s a school you seriously would want to attend but with those you’re basically saying you will absolutely attend if given an offer so just keep that in mind. Definitely don’t send letters of intent to every school

Hello all. I have a question about FAFSA . Does it matter how much was our income for last year? I filed my tax joint with my husband and now asking me about my income separately.

Don't know if this is the right place to ask, but I am really hoping for an acceptance at Temple, and I have emailed Brian about my interest in a letter of intent format. I only applied to Temple. Should I call them as a follow up or do schools see that as annoying/pestering? And if I should give them a call, what should I say?

For FAFSA, you report based upon your status as of the day you file. So if today you're filing, and today you're married, you must report his and your income.

I applied to three schools this year.. LSU, Memphis and Florida. Got waitlisted at LSU on dec. 3, waitlisted at Memphis but applied last year (took my DAT too late last year so LSU wouldnt consider). Nada from FL. After I got waitlisted at LSU decided to apply to 4 more schools in january.. temple, touro, tufts and Lecom. Got interviews within the last few weeks at temple, touro, and tufts. (Couldn’t believe it considering I applied last minute) was on way to tufts interview waiting in Miami airport and found I was accepted to LSU so turned back home.

All the interviews they sent to me for last 3 schools were only in Feb.

Residency- LA
GPA- 3.7, 3.65 science
DAT- 21,20,21,24 QR 16..

Good luck to everyone else!

Its very cold up there!! :cool:
haha I know, that's one of the reasons I'm turning it down. If I wasn't already accepted I'd definitely go, but I am. So I hope it goes to someone who has been waiting!

Acceptance # 2
Today via phone call and email: UCSF

OMG!!! I'm in shock. The bad thing is that I've been starting to really like the idea of going to UNLV
I need to do some serious thinking for a few days!!! :eyebrow:
Congrats! Did you fill out all your financial aid information? I would also look at your financial aid package for UCSF before making a decision. I was pleasantly surprised

Congrats. I think UCSF is a great school.
and San Francisco is a great city.

But if you are married, it all boils down to what your kids and wife want in the end.

why wait a week...
I have some issues with my planned courses and I have to make sure the school I want to attend would accept the change of my planned courses.
