I don’t think we get anything until the 20th according to today’s session with Dr. Turner at the end.
Got the follow email from Dr.Turner today and apparently we should know by Christmas if we were selected.

No I haven't heard anything! I was told at interviews decisions would be sent today but then a previous message in this thread said "by Christmas". So, not really sure...

Actually I just checked my email and I got placed on the alternate list. They said they will be able to tell you where you are ranked on the list sometime in January.

Just got my E&H interview time! Will anyone else be there at 8am?
 
Anyone know when exactly in January Shenandoah will tell students on the waiting list where they are ranked? Hope everyone had a good Holiday Season!

I believe we were told we could request an update mid-month.

Does anyone know when the deadline to accept a seat for VCU is? I'm wondering when they will send out their second round of acceptances

VCU is tricky because they send out acceptances as late as April. At the interest meeting I attended, they said that a good number of acceptances will be out before the deadline of Jan 15, but not all of them.

Does anyone who went to the makeup interview at Shenandoah on Friday know when we are supposed to hear back? I did a virtual interview that day but forgot to ask about a timeline.

I was told on Friday (after I inquired), that the first wave's deadline to accept or deny the first offer is this Friday. I think you have to request the rank you're at if you weren't accepted initially, and second wave of acceptances based on said rank within the next few weeks should be going out. At least that's what I made of the email I received last week! Hope this helps! :)
 
Those accepted to ODU, is your deposit due on the 15th?
We had to verbally commit by January 10th but due to an error in our acceptance letter they have extended our deposit deadline to February 10th.

Yes, I will be attending. The email said that the deposit was not due until Feb 8, but I went ahead and paid it just to be safe.

Sure! I'm a bit of a unique case since I'm technically a non-traditional student (I'm finishing up a Master's in Athletic Training). I also called ODU back in the fall and explained my background to them and they added it to my application file when they considered me. Best of luck to you!
