I guess I would post the topic for OCCC spring traditional pathway 2020. The deadline is September 6, 2019 and I wonder anyone have applied yet.

I submitted my application and it's been verified already. I submitted it on 8/23 and I was worried it wouldn't be verified in time since OCCC says to allow 4-6 weeks. 
How many points did you guys apply with?

Hello!!! I also applied for Spring 2020! I only have 16 preference points. I am a wee bit apprehensive that I will get in. Only 4-6 weeks to wait lol. How many did you all apply with??

I applied with 15 points and this's the third time. @Kate1 don't worry, if you see the status is verified and the transcript is arrived then your application is going through. Wait like 6 weeks is really long for me though. Don't know if this time I can get in.

After reading previous years point comparison, I feel like 15 is competitive enough. I know it just depends but hopefully!!!! I submitted mine aug 28th, the next day it said verified

Mine had a verified status very quickly as well, but on my actual application (in the submitted tab, if you click into it where you can see all the pages of your app) my coursework was still “unverified” if that makes sense. It’s all been verified now though, so no worries. 

I applied with 17 points. It’s my first time applying anywhere and I only applied to this school, so I’m really crossing my fingers I get in. I have to do Spring because I work full time and a Fall start with daytime classes just isn’t an option for me. 

@carla-W I thought the wait was 6-8 weeks to hear about acceptance?

I applied with 16 points. This is my third time as well, but I had 14 the other two times and was waitlisted. I'm hoping for the best this time! Last fall I got an email on October 12th with my point total and stated that we would know after Oct. 22. On Oct. 23 we got an email with acceptance/waitlist news. In the spring, we got an email on May 13 with point total and acceptance/waitlist at the same time and it was the first email we had received about anything. So 5.5 - 6.5 weeks were the time in between application deadline & finding out acceptance or not, just in case any of you are curious on a timeframe. Good luck to all of you!!! 

Also, as a side note, I don't remember my application actually saying verified before the deadline either of the last two times and my application was still considered and I was waitlisted, so I'm not sure how strict they are on that part or if they just want to make sure we get them all in on time.

@kristamd good to know! Hopefully we get those letters sooner rather than later. 

So if you were waitlisted with 14 points 2 times, I feel pretty decent about 17 and I’d bet that 16 is a solid number too! Good luck to you this time! Hopefully we’ll be classmates!

@kristamd or wait...are there people who don’t get waitlisted and just get flat out rejection letters? I never considered that. Surely they wouldn’t waitlist an astronomical amount of people?

I think so, yes. But they do waitlist a lot of people. I know someone who was 65 or so on the waitlist last semester.
