Carleton: Alternative Offer or Original Offer?

A photo of nmi30 nmi30
I originally applied for the Journalism program at Carleton, but I recently got an alternative offer for the Communications program.
It says on my CarletonCentral that the the decision is still pending for Journalism, yet on my admission package it says that I'm not admissible for my original application.
I still want to go to Communications, I just wasn't sure if I should accept if I have a chance of getting Journalism still!

Thank youuu! :)

Call them...for me, I got an 'eligible for admission' for their communications program and got an 'admitted' for their journalism program. All I know it they only admit you to your first choice unless your marks didn't meet the requirements or etc. I would definitely call them to make sure though.

Alright, I'll definitely do that tomorrow. Thank you so much!

P.S. Congrats on the acceptances! :)

Why not accept the alternative and then withdraw that acceptance and change it to your Journalism acceptance if you get it?
