Would it be jumping the gun to send a letter of continued interest before one has heard back about their initial decision?

I saw on the Reddit thread that someone called the office and they said they were on track to release next week, as far as I could tell

For those who got accepted--- did anyone receive the acceptance through the black box before, or instead of, learning of the acceptance via e-mail or phone first?

The acceptance email tells you what day to expect your black box, so I doubt the black box comes first to anyone.

I really hope they're waiting to notify certain applicants based off of the awards...

Since Vandy is my top choice I'm 100% sure that I'm going there...but I didn't receive scholarship information yet so I'm really 0% sure I'm going.

This uncertainty is so frustrating. :(

It doesn't look like they've requested interviews yet - or if they have, nobody on TLS has gotten one or told people about it, which seems rather unlikely.

Also didn't know the Merit Awards have interviews. Where did you find that info?

Former merit scholar here.

They do have interviews, usually those are held around the admitted student days. So there's normally two sets of interviews, probably depending on if the first set withdraw or they don't award them all, etc.

You'll get a regular award first, and then you'll be invited for an interview and upgraded if you get it.

Thanks for the info. Are these interviews in person or phone/Skype?

I will not comment on Vanderbilt, but I will say that for Notre Dame that means an acceptance.

I have no idea when those appeared for me, but I'm already admitted and have that section. May be an acceptance coming your way

You guys are talking about specific fees showing up, not just the fees section itself showing up right? Blank fees section here.

I'm admitted and don't have fees on my status checker, it's just blank under fees. Hoping you'll get good news though!
