Sorry if this has already been answered, but do all international students get emailed?

I think they do (at least I and a few others in Europe/Asia got their acceptances that way). Dunno about Canadians though, maybe they just inform them the same way they do US applicants.

Is the offer of scholarship in the decision letter or separate? It will be a while before I get my package since I am based in a foreign country (no scholarship offers in the email...)

The scholarship is mentioned in the decision letter, and also there is a separate letter behind it in the folder that is specific to the scholarship.

In case people are confused, those who do not get a scholarship with their acceptance can still get grants up to around 70k based on previous years. However, it will not be until April that you will find out what, if any aid you get (based on previous years).

No, not all people who are abroad receive an email. I did not and I am abroad.

Has the mail been going to your permanent or current addresses? Not that I'm expecting anything, but I can dream...

out of curiosity -- what are the post dates / dates on the letters for you admits? is it just one big send or are they staggering it?

What are we thinking--will there be a later batch of acceptances for those of us who applied later, or are we destined for those other kind of letters? Looks like there were at least two batches last year.

I submitted on 11/4, but only went complete on 12/15.

Like others, 1/22 postmark; unlike some others, I live in DC, so 1-2 days via USPS.

It does not move on from "Complete."

Anyone in the Chicago area receive a letter yet?

I'm borderline at best, so it's not like its a question of when an acceptance is coming, but for some reason I'm still pretty anxious this week.
