Going by the decision dates from previous cycles, it looks like there is a steady trickle of acceptances after the big wave is over. So these February postmarks might just be some of the trickle.

Haha. Interesting

Due to the statistically inevitable fuck-ups in snail-mail, several applicants last year got an admission email or packet prior to their original admissiom letter. Don't be alarmed - you're in! I don't remember any "accidental" acceptance emails going out, that would be too unprofessional even for cls

Isn't the acceptance letter envelope blue?

Did they address you by your name in the letter? Sounds a bit weird if they didn't. However I haven't been admitted so I have no idea what to expect.



No Letter, just a handbook with a form letter as the first page but the envelope had the right name. I will call them.


TAKE IT AND RUN!!!

I mean, yes, calling them would be the most responsible thing to do. Also that acceptance letter probably had your butler/hammie in it, so you definitely want to locate it ASAP ;)



I called them and I'M IN ! and with a Butler YAY! The letter was mailed Jan 24. stats 176, GPA just under 75%

The problem with this 2/3 postmark is that it gets my hopes up again, only to be dashed again (or at least I'm guessing that will be the case)

So what you are all telling me is I shouldn't ditch work early to check my mailbox today?

I am just hoping for that email from the Dean congratulating for getting in without ever receiving a letter.

What is the latest complete date to receive a letter so far? I really wish I could've submitted my apps earlier...
