Congrats! What did the email say? Was it from regular admissions, or from the Program? Just curious. Here's to hoping we all hear something soon...
Sorry, should have clarified. So I was admitted via a call to my family in the States asking where my packet should be sent at the very end of February (I live abroad). I got an email with info for admitted students on 3/1 and the mailed stuff shortly after that. In my admissions letter, it acknowledged that I'd applied to Epstein and said a decision on that was forthcoming. Then on 3/19 I got an email about the program from Dean Scwartz- no info, just a notification that said I was in and I should expect more in the mail soon. My mail is pretty slow, but I will post again when I get the packet.
FWIW, based on what others have said in this thread and elsewhere about Epstein, I think the waitlist could be affected by an Epstein decision. Keep in mind I have no idea what I'm talking about, but it seems to me that if Epstein wants you, they can probably pull you off the waitlist, or at least help. If I was deciding between someone who'd taken the time to write a four-page essay about public interest and someone who hadn't, I know who I'd pick.
Good luck to those waiting!
