Thank you Dean Shively!

Between W&L and Wake, I have to say how impressed I've been with both admissions offices. So personal and efficient!

Happy holidays! Just to alleviate any ongoing anxiety I thought I'd let you know where we are with things. We are planning to release another set of admission offers this week - about 140 offers, probably tomorrow. After that our plan is to release decisions every Thursday beginning January 12. Rest assured we are busy reviewing files and managing the process as efficiently as possible. I hope that by sharing our plans with you, we'll be able to reduce the stress around this particular question.

All of Wake Forest University will be closed next week for the winter holidays, but we'll return January 3, 2012. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to email me directly and I'll respond as I am able but no later than the first week of January. We've tried to anticipate questions in our correspondence. Any scholarship offers are outlined in initial admission offers both via email and in the paper letter that follows. We'll be sending out admission packets with additional information early in the new year.

Congratulations to those who've received positive decisions. To all of our other applicants I appreciate your patience with this process. We recognize that it is stressful for you and strive to give every application an appropriate level of consideration. Thoughtful and deliberate decisions serve us all best.

Happy Holidays and may the new year bring all you hope for and more!

Warm regards,
Jay Shively

No experience with W&L, but I agree with you; Wake seems to be run by legit people. I have been high on Wake for a long time. Good luck everyone.

Maybe they are going out in "mini batches" throughout the day? The Dean did say that they would release around 140 offers today....

That's what I was thinking/hoping. Someone on LSN got in who went complete on 11/14. Good luck everybody. Hope we all hear back today!

In via e-mail just before noon! Status checker was updated to:
Current Status: Decision rendered.
Current Status Date: 12/22/2011
Decision Status: Congratulations! You've been admitted!
Decision Status Date: 12/22/2011

Wake is definitely one of my top choices. Good luck to everyone still waiting!

fwiw: I was UR 11/22 and that status was not changed until today
