    Accepted January 2016

    Advertisements



    Hey guys!

    Just starting a new thread to get in touch with people who are planning on starting at MUA in Jan 2016 (regardless of whether you have heard back about your acceptance)! A lot of us are going there and don't know anyone else so it would be awesome to get to know other students starting around the same time!

    Looking forward to hearing from y'all!

    Hi!

    Congratulation on your acceptance!! I was planning on just filling out the dorm form, that was emailed/mailed to us in the welcome package so that the school can assign us to dorms! Are you planning on finding your own housing? I might be getting there around then, myself, to get to know the island and about getting around!

    Well I was told by the housing department that they have furnished apartments as well and its just a security deposit and one month rent. I kind of like that better rather than living in the dorm. I saw a few pics of the dorm and kind of rather live in an apartment. I just don't know how long it would take me to get to school. The housing director said that there is a shuttle that picks us up. So hopefully I find some other students who are familiar with the housing and areas (safe one for sure lol). Im going to tour the island myself but I'm excited. Congrats on our acceptance as well. Such a small class with so many applicants and we made it in..Nice.

    Awesome! Me too! I'm from NYC. How about you? And have you filled out your FAFSA? .. I've sent everything out but I feel like MUA is going to take forever to get back to us about our loans =/

    HAHA IM from NYC.. born and raised. I filled out every thing and added the school code over a month ago. I even e mailed them. I just want to make sure everything they need is given. But, its their first year using Title IV loans so I'm assuming they are still in some training progress or something lol.

    I see what you mean, I looked up the pictures of the dorm as well lol I was planning on looking for apartments off campus after the first semester, once I got familiar with the school!

    I spoke to the finance department yesterday and turns out they usually take 7-10 days to fill out any information for the loans (for Canadian students), but I wouldn't imagine it to be much different for US residents. If you call them, they'll look up your status and tell you how far along they are.
    *Hermoine, if you haven't heard back, definitely give them a call!

    Good luck on the loans applications! Hopefully they get through the loan applications quickly!

    BTW quick question, in the required documents it says our current universities need to send a degree conferral directly to MUA. Is that just the official transcript or a letter from the university registrar confirming that we have indeed received our bachelor's degree?

    Getting ahead,

    Usually on your transcript it indicates if you have graduated or not. But, if you have and its not on the transcript, your school needs to send in a letter that confirms you completed your Bachelors. I went to grad school and was pending my Thesis so my degree said Pending, until I finished my thesis. Then I sent them a new transcript.

    As far as housing, I wanted to stay in dorm first semester too. But there is literally nothing over there anyway when class is over so Im going to stay in an apartment most likely instead.
