    anyone heard from SDSU? Advice...please

    So...she found out she's waitlisted, and that SDSU gives preference to Cali residents. They're waiting to hear back from the "in-staters." She's going to call today to see if they'll tell her what her "rank" is, but seriously...ummm deadlines? How fair is it to be waitlisted when you have other options, and other schools and jobs awaiting an answer? How likely is it to be accepted once waitlisted?

    Thanks for replying. It's difficult, because she's extremely smart, but not hearing, as you so aptly stated in this late of the game, makes me think that she'll be denied. Does it make a difference that she sent her application in without knowing anyone? The reason I ask is that she lives on the East coast, and like most people, has better luck when putting a face to the name. She knows no one at SDSU, and sent in her application with her fingers crossed. I would imagine that those with "priority" have already been notified, and that either she's been denied, waitlisted, or possibly one of the last one's to decide on. I've always heard that not hearing about April 15th is a bad thing, so I'm guessing that's your opinion as well. I thought that perhaps it was taking the USPS a few extra days to deliver a letter from the West to East coast, but if she hasn't heard by today, I'm guessing it's probably a "no." Is that reasonable?
  3. My best friend applied to the master's of social work (MSW) program at SDSU (San Diego State University), and hasn't heard back yet. The webportal info just states that her application is still "under review," even though she was under the impression that acceptance letters for the 2 year program would have already been sent out by now. Does anyone know if the letters have been sent out? and if so...should she have already received it? I'm torn between thinking that she didn't get in (because it is the middle of April--obviously past April 15th--and shes already heard back from other grad schools), and maybe SDSU is slower--hence the "still under review." Wouldn't it, however, say "denied" if she were...denied? Yes, I know she can call, but that's her decision. *I'm* trying to get as much info I can to prepare myself to either console or congratulate her. Ya know? Please help me...if you know. much appreciated...
