    Question Acceptance Letter Timeline?

    So I applied to Iowa state a little bit ago, and was wondering how long it takes to get a letter back from them. I applied earlier this year and I didnt have enough credits through DMACC to transfer yet, so they let me re-apply when I was done with summer courses. I sent my transcripts in and called them today to see if they got them. They said that they recieved them on August 12th, so I was just wondering what the turn around rate is for getting a letter. I am applying for the spring term. I've decided that I need to actually try in college since I failed out of it my first year when staying in Helser at Iowa State.

    Anyone that can help thanks in advance,
    HerkyKiller.

    That's awesome. I received my acceptance letter a couple weeks ago to return to Iowa State this spring after an 18-month hiatus.

    Good luck. Do well.

    I reentered with a phone call, but the world of returning grad students is a little different

    You sound motivated, and like you've really learned something along the way. Just go do what you've got to do, and you're good to go.

    Iowa State must have the easiest grad school requirements in the United States if you and I both got in.

    We probably shouldn't advertise this.

    IIRC the requirement to get into grad school are as follows:

    1. Fill out application
    2. Measureable pulse
    3. Ability to turn O2 into CO2
    4. Find professor that can confirm #2 & #3.

    You're counting on CycloneErik to know what O2 and CO2 are.

    I was admitted before any professorial confirmation.

    And I'm not counting on IcSyU to know what a pulse is.
