  1. Thank you so much! I have hope I’ll be officially accepted to another school! 🙏
  2. One last thing: you can definitely email Dr. E. to ask for updates on your status. Dr. E is awesome and he does his best to help everyone.
  3. You will hear from them soon. I only heard before because I submitted my application in October. Good luck! You’ll love that department. It’s just a pity the grad school didn’t accept my transcript! It’s a nightmare, I don’t want to hear again the word “Iowa” for the next few years.... 🥺🥺🥺
  4. ISU = Iowa State University? I have heard from them. I was unofficially accepted on a Thursday and rejected on a Monday. I’m really disappointed. (see the posts above)
  5. Yes, this waiting is killing me!!!! Stay strong, everything happens for a reason. Easier said than done, I know 🥺
  6. Thank God it had nothing to do with your degree. I’m pretty you’ll be accepted somewhere! 🤞🏻
  7. Thanks! It’s been super hard. I haven’t slept well since Monday, but there’s still hope! I won’t give up!
  8. Hi Saina 🙋🏻‍♂️ I’m so really sorry to hear your received a rejection. It really sucks 😔 I don’t know if you have received an offer yet, but I also hope you’re accepted at other schools. Thanks for your words!
  9. I feel you 🥺 Did they say why they rejected your application? 😕
  10. Just an update: Here’s the email I sent yesterday: Dear Mark, In your email, you have stated the following: "If you have additional information showing your Bachelor’s degree program was a four year program when you were enrolled, we will review your application again." Therefore I am writing to ask that you please reconsider your decision with regards to my admission case given the additional information about my degree that is provided in the attached letter from A. S., Registrar of University Anhembi Morumbi. As you requested, this letter certifies that my Bachelor's degre
  11. Exactly! My bachelor’s degree is a normal 4-year degree. This is all wrong! 😭 But I hope they change their minds after they read the letter the registrar wrote yesterday.
  12. 🥺🥺🥺 This is really kind of you! Thank you so much! God bless you!
  13. The Registrar of UAM issued a new document that says I was enrolled in a full 4-year program, but I took more courses/credits every semester and was able to graduate in 3 years instead of 4 years. I just hope this is sufficient documentation!
  14. 🤔 I believe this “Homologacion de títulos extranjeros de educacion superior” is the same as WES or any other credential evaluation company in the US. So, Iowa doesn’t accept these evaluations, they have their own evaluators. I don’t think their evaluators are bad, but they don’t understand anything about the educational system in Brazil. For example, they compare my program (that I started in 2016) to the program nowadays, and yes, they’re completely different because the Ministry of Education messed everything up in 2018. UAM is helping me now. I still have hope! Thanks for
  15. Thanks, Paula. I actually asked them if I could take extra courses but they said taking extra courses at ISU would not be an option because ISU would not be awarding me an undergraduate degree (unless I apply for a new four-year BA degree and start all over again, but that's not what I’m proposing). From what I understood, the problem wasn’t the number of hours/credits, but the time I spent in college. I’m guess they believed my BA was a pre-baccalaureate or something. But it doesn’t even exist in Brazil. If you don’t complete your program, you won’t even be awarded a degree. The system here
