Does anyone know if this is a good program? I'm thinking about applying for it for Fall '08, but I don't know anyone who has gone to the school. I would love to know anything from quality of... Read More

    PS Just to let you all know how desperately anxious I am, I actually asked my 5 year old daughter if she thought I would get in today. She said no!! The cheeky buggar!

    Trident Tech got my back if I don't get in at MUSC because I will start the program over there for this coming fall 2011

    Mid march?!?!? What happened to the one month after deadline response that is mentioned on the website?!? I don't know if my little heart can handle another 6 weeks!
    Also, I was under the impression that all supporting documents had to be submitted by the deadline? Geeeeez!

    I'm currently at Charleston Southern University. Are you applying to tech's program also?

    I know... me too. That's why I asked. I said, "so should we still expect to hear around mid Feb?" And she said no. I'm pretty sure she said they were still collecting supporting docs, but either way- it was L.H. in admissions, so I'm sure it's accurate information. I don't know what I'm going to do for all this time. I thought 2 more weeks was bad enough!

    Haha you asked your daughter, that's cute! My 2 year olds favorite word is no
    ..so I'm definitely not asking him!! There must be a ton of applications since it is taking so long to review them?

    Well, I have good news and I have bad news... The good news is that no one has been accepted or denied acceptance yet. The bad news is that we won't hear until mid-March!! I called today on an unrelated issue with my transcript and thought I'd throw it out there... She said that they are doing preliminary reviewing now, but still awaiting supporting documentation and such. Therefore, they will not actually go to a committee until the beginning of March.

    Ack! 6 more weeks!! I could die!
    My birthday is on March...

    I hope my birthday present will be a call from them telling me I am accepted

    She didn't really sound like it was delayed because there were so many applicants, it really just sounded like that was their plan all along. I kind of think it was a mistake on the website because I don't think that any of the earlier programs were notified within a month of the deadline.

    The earlier programs heard within a month (I have several friends currently in the program) But, whatever the reason... I guess we'll just have to wait it out and keep our fingers crossed

    Looking back at the applicants for Fall '10, it looks like they also heard back in mid to late March. Sounds like maybe the admissions process for Spring semester is just faster for whatever reason.

    At least I can stop obsessing over the mail for a while now

    Hey Guys,
    I know you are all freaking out because I was in the same boat last year at this time, so I figured I'd help you guys out a little bit. I can remember checking this website everyday, and waiting by my mailbox trying not to vomit. For the Fall 2010 admission, there were 475 applicants and for Spring 2011 there were somewhere around 275 applicants. I did not receive word until the middle of March, and I felt like it was a year!! If you guys have any more questions, I would be glad to answer them!! Best of Luck =)
