  • The admissions committee gave me a call and asked if I was set on the 2-year program..I stated that my preference was the 2 year but if the 3-year program was the only way I would get in I would take it. I will accept if this is the only school I get in. I applied on Nov. 15th. Good luck to all the other applicants. Go Trojans?

  • With a MPA from TAMU, GPA 4.0/4.0. They seems to reject me at the first glance. Dunno what happened. It could be that my first TOEFL score is not delivered properly, they asked me to resend it on Jan 10. The ETS said estimated shipping is Jan 17. So they might just skipped my application due to this.
