How do these schools notify you of their decision?

Postby arich24 » Tue Jan 22, 2008 12:35 pm

Ok, like everyone else, my anxiety has reached an all time high...so, in response I hope to figure out exactly how I should be hearing from my schools so I know what mailbox to stalk (my email or my physical).

Schools I applied to: George Washington (they notified me that my app. was compelte via snail mail, can I assume the decision is issued the same?), William & Mary (from what I've gathered email, at least for acceptance), Tulane (same as W&M?), American (the one I REALLY care about, please let me know!!!), and UConn (although my undergrad refuses to send my damn college cert to them, UGH). UMaryland already notified me of my rejection via snail mail...can't be too sad b/c at least I know!

Any info would be greatly appreciated! :)

I received an email from Tulane, "Re: Your Tulane Law School Acceptance," and then a mailing about a week later. American sent a large, priority USPS envelope.

That's all I've got for you! Good luck.

Thanks Sgt...American is def. taking their sweet, sweet time! So, now I must keep my eyes out for a nice red, white, and blue priority envelope. I wish this cycle would just come to a close (in a positive way of course)!

COOLEY: BIG ASS HOT AIR BALLOON WITH RUNNING TICKER ON THE BOTTOM WITH THE NAMES OF THOSE ACCEPTED. YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL IT PASSES BY ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY SEVEN TIMES IF YOUR NAME BEGINS WITH AN S. IF YOUR NAME BEGINS WITH A LATE "A" YOU ONLY HAVE TO WAIT FOR THREE AND A HALF PASSES! BEST OF LUCK AND HOPE THIS HELPS! :twisted:

Tulane snuck into my room and left a letter under my pillow while I was sleeping. Is that normal? I feel a little violated.

Anyone know how Indiana (Bloomington or Indy) notifies? At the moment every time I hear the little *ding* of my email notification I begin to panic...

I have heard e-mail and snail mail. I am really hoping to hear from them also. Right now I'm going with the "no news is good news" attitude.

p.s. If you hear from them, please let me know!
