Congrats! I still haven't heard anything :(


Maybe that means you're still under consideration! :D

Crossing my fingers and hoping that's it!

My bf got deferred ED and accepted RD last week (12/22) - so ever since then I've been itching for a decision

Got into RD from ED as well.
Also, they say that if there is any merit based award, it will be in my admission package, which will be sent out tomorrow...
So, finger crossed for $$.

notified by both ED rejection and RD admission in e-mail, but no details, gotta wait until the packet arrives (hopefully) tomorrow.

Don't think so. They're winnowing down the candidates it looks like, good news for those who haven't heard.

That's so weird. You'd think ED candidates would hear back first

Not really. They're trying to take as much time as possible to assess the ED and RD applicants. They don't want to take many people ED b/c it'll cost them more to do that so they're taking their time to figure out which ED apps to reject then accept right away with the RD and which to defer/waitlist. The more time they take the better b/c they're seeing more RD apps as time goes by and they're trying to see if the RD apps are going to be competitive with high numbers. If they're not, obviously they'll take more ED to ensure higher numbers but if RD apps are competitive, they don't have to take as many ED b/c probability wise the medians are gonna be where they have to be.

I meant weird in terms of the expectation of an "early" decision, not in terms of strategy. Strategically, they're making a really good move.

Deferred to RD from ED via email. I know some people got accepted RD right away when they were deferred to RD--do we think there's still hope for those of us who were just deferred to RD? Hoping to get a decision soon

Just got deferred from ED, but no decision yet on RD. I'm 165/3.7, Teach for America alum.

Did anybody not get an immediate RD notification but later get in? How long have people been waiting once deferred?

Acceptances come out in waves. You'll hear back during a wave.

Was this in the same email, or did you get a deferral email first and then the admission email?

I just got an email notifying me that I've been rejected for ED but accepted for RD. My merit aid package, if any, is supposed to come in the mail with my acceptance letter. Anyone have an idea what the chances are of getting anywhere near the ED Presidential Scholarship money with a 167 and a 4.0? I know I'll find out soon in the mail, but I just wondered if anyone knew anything about that beyond what is on LSN (where many people clearly decline to record any of their scholarship packages).

I have almost your exact same numbers and I got $105K for the 3 years + $15K first-year living stipend (or accommodation in their school apartment complex). Not too bad...
