    I sent it in the day I got it so it might have been at the top of the pile? The guy who called me wasn't too specific, he just said "A spot opened, do you want to accept it" and I got the email this morning at 4 am and the link for my deposit appeared.

    I didn't get in (not a big surprise but still disappointing) but in my letter (rec'd 2 weeks ago, dated 4/4) they said I should contact them over the summer for advice on improving my application if I'd like to reapply. Not sure if this is standard or if (god-willing) I'd be a lock if I retook a course. Anyway, hope that helps someone. I am not sure if I'll reapply or not.
    Congrats and best wishes to those admitted. I hope you'll share your wisdom about the program as the year goes on.

    Hey guys I'm in the 2012-2013 class. I will speaking with you guys on orientation day, and mentoring six of you. You can feel free to email me at with questions at: ramonbritt@gmail.com. I also loaded up a blog and started blogging about life at school. I will get some info for you guys asking about dorms. I have finals coming up next week. So if I'm slow to respond between now and Tuesday 5/14/13 you know why, but you can check the blog in the mean time. If you were wait listed don't give up hope. One student got in a week into the program.

    I'm not sure how quickly the admissions office contacts people on the wait list, but I withdrew from the program on Friday and will get a refund for my deposit. There should be another spot open for someone else! Good luck to everyone beginning the program in June!
