They could be open, but I'm not sure if the mailing has anything to do with that.

Not necessarily, they could be automatically scheduled to go out.

But on the other hand, I was surprised to hear some schools were closed today in the first place--KJD here, my undergrad is 100% open. So Duke might be open too. *goes to check status checker for scholly*

I'm in Boston and haven't received mine yet, mailed 2/14. Haven't checked today though so hopefully it is here and I just don't know it!

Yea. If we're not open, this is a cruel cruel trick.

Any recent movement from Priority Reserve list? I've heard they admit people off of this list at any time, so I'm curious what if anyone's gotten in off of it recently or if I should expect to just wait until May.

Definitely email them with your other offer and ask for more money. Worked for me.

I wonder why you haven't gotten it when some people in SoCal have already received theirs (except me)! I also wonder why they decide to mail out scholly info when they email you your acceptances.. does it come in a fancy package or something? I am just curious and dying to know lol

Looks like the first wave was on Wednesday 2/8, second wave was Tuesday 2/14, but since today was a holiday maybe the next wave will be tmr?

I'm thinking of going! I'll be arriving at 10:30 am in RDU so I would have nothing better to do than attend their events anyway haha

I also have a roomie lined up for ASW but we're wondering if we would have to crash on a current students' sofa or the floor if we arrange it with them? I'm thinking of emailing back for more details on that if nobody here knows how that would work since I'd prefer not to sleep on a sofa lol :roll:

current student replied to someone's fb post in the group and said "It depends on the student host, but at the very least most of us have couches/pull out couches for you all to use during the visit!"

Is there a process for getting matched with a student or is it more loose?

if it's not in the ASD registration I'd guess you'd have to email admissions about it.

Would also love to know why I haven't... could be my school being slow to sort mail - checked my box again this morning and nothing. Will check at the end of the day and hopefully get it then.
