dml said:Hello, I am on the alternate list at VCOM and to my understanding it is different from the waitlist. They have both an alternate and a waitlist. They recommended that I send a LOI and more recommendations. I did both but I am still not sure what my realistic chances are of gaining a spot. I was told by the Director of Admissions that the alternate list is reviewed once a month and some of the candidates on that list will get moved up to the waitlist. So I feel very discouraged and depressed. It's driving me crazy because I don't know what to do at this point. I was hoping to be planning a move to Blacksburg. Anyone have some suggestions or words of support. Thanks,
To all of those on the "alternate" list at NSU. There is hope. I was on the alternate list since March and was just accepted today!!! My advice is to write a letter of intent and make your continued interest known. I hope to see you in July!!
Best of Luck

jmv10 said:I'm also on the alternate list at NSU, and I don't think there is a waitlist in addition. Also Dr. Chaffin told me that the list is not ranked, so I have no idea how they decide! He also said that they won't be able to make any decisions until May when the deposits are due, like sunnystudent said. So we shouldn't really worry until after May 21st comes and goes!! I hope we all hear good news in May or June! ~Jen
