    Like I mentioned on the 2013 thread (someone posted the email there), I would be shocked to see them post decisions so early. Sorry for my pessimism, but I have seen how this rolls for the last 3 years But perhaps they have turned around? That is what I call a "glimmer of hope."
    They actually sent an email today saying they will mail decisions on January 7th and to call them on January 14th of we haven't received it . Looks like they've changed! I can't believe it's so soon!!

    Did you receive an email like that before Paco?

    Not one exactly like that, but similar in content quoting an "around" date that they never kept. I'm actually curious!

    that sucks. Well actually thanks for letting us know. This way we won't get our hopes up too high .

    This is a random question but what's the lowest cum GPA you've seen someone get accepted with? I unfortunately didn't do well in undergrad so I don't really think I have a chance here.

    Paco-RN will probably tell you something about how GPA isnt all that the admissions people are looking at. With any school, they look at the applicant as a whole, so they take into account recommendation letters, your personal statement, extracurriculars, etc. There's more to an applicant than just #s, so dont doubt yourself. You have just as much of a chance as anyone else who applied!!

    Spritedkidd knows me all too well

    But that's correct, the number really does not matter 100% (except of course that it should be the minimum they state on the website, which I think is 2.8 overall). I don't recall calculating my final cum, but I know I had like a 3.23 in my first bachelors (a tad higher if you factor in my prereqs later on). One of my classmates had a 3.1 I think but I am not completely sure. However, the average reportedly for those accepted in my class was about 3.6, which means there are many below and above that number. There were some classmates of mine that got C's in some of their prereqs (especially micro) and still got in, so don't get bummed about a low GPA or anything less than an A (as long as it was at or above a C). I have to be honest, there were a couple of classmates (though a very few) that I cannot ever figure out how they were accepted into an accelerated program like Stony Brook (and that's all I am going to say about that ... )

    That said, clearly it's more than just GPA!

    @Paco-RN, its because ive read the past threads from previous years and i know a lot of people asked you about the importance of GPA and you always mentioned that lols.

    but in all honesty, GoVeg, i dont think you should stress about it (too much), especially since: 1) you already submitted your application, 2) we have no way of knowing how they make their admissions decisions (like how they rank GPA against other application factors), and 3) you cant do anything about it at this point. just enjoy the holiday season and try to keep yourself occupied! before you know it, you'll receive that email that says you got accepted ^_^
