In the king's english: "Get really ambitious, and don't share TLS with your mates in your class out of an overly-competitive spirit! Righto! Tea Time!"

Hey my online status checker today says "in review" this is a change from whatever it said from 2/28 until today 4/6. How long has it taken others to receive a decision after the change to "in review"? Thanks in advance.

6 days but I think that's because I called them everyday to bother them.

Got a scholarship increase today. Have to be honest, these people are good at making things happen.

For those that got updated scholarship awards, did they email you a revised offer letter or snail mail?

I was emailed after a brief back-and-forth negotiation. Their response speed was impressive.

Did they mail you an official signed letter with the revised offer or was it just the email?

I just got the email yesterday and it said a revised letter would be in the mail, but obviously I have not received it yet.

Same here, though the admissions officer did email me back at close to 8:00pm Eastern last night.

Thanks. I also got an increased scholarship and I just want to wait to get the official letter in the mail before depositing. They were very quick in getting back to me.

We don't even have a TLS c/o 2014 page yet.


We do now.

edit- the TLS c/o page, at least.

I'd say a little before August 1st, but I may be a little overzealous.

The undergrads sign leases 6 months to a year (sometimes over a year) in advance. I highly suggest not waiting til august unless you dont care where you live. Like the house I live in now I found on really late craigslist and signed the lease february for a June move-in... it was like unheard of to wait that late in the game.... the towns around here have student housing restrictions, I heard from a law student that they apply to law students as well, but most landlords ive dealt with are willing to rent to grad students (dispite the silly laws). All the student restrictions make it really hard to get housing in Bryn Mawr (the farther towns don't enforce the restrictions as much because a lot less students live outside of Bryn Mawr) soooo just a tip, if you want to find a house there start looking soon!

are you sure about that? i had no problem finding housing as a grad student. i never heard of any restrictions on grad students around here, either.

that being said, i do agree that august is a little late.
