Undecided turning into hard to get into major?

December 16th, 2014

Everyone says to go into the undecided major but I am getting really scared, all the applicants I have talked to applied for undecided because people told them to also. I am starting to think the undecided major may actually be harder to get into this year since so many applicants applied into that. What does everyone else think? What is the actual easiest major to get into?

Should I change my major to one of my aspiring majors: marketing(smeal which is too hard I think) journalism or economics?
this is bogus, who would think

Did anybody asked to fill out parents expense breakdown sheet?

December 9th, 2014

My mom just got an email from the financial aid office about our family income.
It was saying

“Dear OO,

We are delighted that you have applied for admission to Bryn Mawr College for the 2015-2016 academic year. We are reviewing all financial aid applications for candidates, so that we can provide those students who are admitted with a financial aid decision along with the admissions decision.

To help us better understand your family’s financial circumstances, I request that you submit the following information as soon as possible.
On the CSS/PROFILE, you reported that your parent’s income for year 2014 is $*****. Please help us understand how your family of five provides for basic living expenses, and paying $**** a month in rent ($***** a year.) Please complete the enclosed Parent Expense Breakdown form.
We appreciate your prompt attention to this request. We recommend faxing this information to us at 610-526-5249 as soon as possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.”

Also my family (include me) has only three people and I don’t know why they are saying my “family of five”.
Ugh… would this be a good sign that they read my fa application look really carefully? or is this just part of process…
I don’t know I am so confused.
oh i can’t beleive it

Kelley: Direct Admittance Petition

December 9th, 2014

I was accepted to IUB, but I knew I would not be directly admitted into the business school because my GPA is too low. I go to an extremely difficult boarding school, and a 3.7 is extremely difficult to attain. My 1600 SAT composite is 1300, above the required, but my GPA is around. a 3.2. Granted my Freshman and sophomore hovered around 3.0, and my Junior year I had a 3.67. Does anyone realistically see the admissions committee granting my petition?

There is nothing more I can do extracurricularly: president of the volunteering club, yearbook editor in chief, and over 500 hours of community service.

Anyone want to give their opinion? And if anyone has submitted a petition feel free to add your stats and results (or pending)

I’m trying to move quick because I realized that the petition deadline is tomorrow.

Thanks in advance.
