Nobody has any comments on this school at all??
Does anybody know how many people (total) are usually waitlisted per year?
Ya I was also looking for apartments, but couldn't really find one that suited me. I'll probably just end up living on campus. I think once they receive our deposit, they'll send us a packet about housing, but I'm not really sure.
Do most students live on-campus? I was trying to look for apartments around the campus but doesn't seem like there's much to pick. Should I live in one of the campus housing? Which housing is better??
They sent me a conformation email two days after they received my deposit (I know exactly when they received mine because I dropped it off instead of mailing it.) So I'd wait a day or two and then if you still haven't heard anything give them a call.
Hey I an African American student from the south side of Chicago. I don't have the best Verbal abilities as shown by my PCAT scores. I have improved a great amount since attending purdue but I am worried that my scores and my inferior verbal ability will inhibit me from even getting an interview.
