  1. @KhalifehA that's awesome! Congrats! I'm looking forward to meeting you in August!
  2. @ECA41 and @devx I know I'm a bit late with this reply but I went to the admitted students weekend and I really enjoyed it! Everyone was friendly, the current students and other new admits were very impressive, and the class I attended was great. Furthermore, they seem to have endless resources and that's very attractive. My visit gave me confidence in my decision to attend Jackson. If you have any specific questions feel free to PM me.

  4. Hi @lanhoang and @nuhanzi the acceptance letter's second paragraph said I got funding and then below the acceptance letter there was a financial aid letter. Congrats to you both on your acceptances!
  5. Thanks for the heads up @BluffIR! I just checked and I'm in with ~$24k/year =)
  6. It's making me want to attend less. I'm getting annoyed that I can't make a final decision because I'm waiting on them.
  7. Accepted but with no funding... oh well, I have good offers from other schools.
  8. Accepted to Bologna campus with $19,500 fellowship =)
  9. I got my decision! I'm in with 20k/year! So excited!
  10. I got an email this morning. I got in with a full ride! I'm too excited for words!
  11. I got an email. Accepted with $8,000/ semester in funding.
  12. I applied! Anyone know what their notification timeline is like?
  13. I think our sample size is too small to prove anything, especially since within that small group there is already an outlier. I'm guessing there is another reason for the change that has nothing to do with admissions decisions.
  14. Thank you to both of you! I really appreciate your input. I agree that I'm overthinking this-- something I have done throughout this entire application process... Also, my math does not at add up at all. It's closer to eight months. I was worried and tired and wrote this post without double checking my math. If I can figure out when I actually started volunteering I'll call the school and let them know, otherwise, I'll let it go since probably doesn't matter that much. Thanks for your help!
  15. Hey all! I just finished applying for several schools, and on a couple of my resumes I have an incorrect date range for one of my volunteer activities. I (think) I accidentally added an extra six months to one my volunteer positions. I had guessed on the range because I couldn't remember-- my old resumes use a vague "Winter 2014 to Present" and the email I used to set up the volunteer opportunity deletes anything over 1.5 years old. So I guessed February, primarily because I remembered it sucked outside when I went for the interview and the weather in February sucks. I haven't looked at m
