I think the both of us are getting accepted. no e-mails for us
I think it's unlikely that they would wait till monday to send out rejection/waitlist emails for the following reasons:
1. they have the whole week to deal with people calling and freaking out at them.
2. When someone called the admissions office they said we'd find out friday or monday. To me, this means rejections on friday, acceptances on monday
3. since they have to write notes with their acceptances and address them etc... it will take more time for them to come. All they have to do is BCC an email to all the rejects/waitlists, and they're done. Defer emails went out on the same day, it seems unlikely they'd wait to send emails for rejections.
What do you think?
what do I think? I think you're great for writing that, for starters!
I didn't know they said decisions are gonna be either friday or monday!!
I think you have a very good reason for dismissing the monday rejections option due to the incredible amount of phone calls they would receive throughout the week. Then again, it could also just be the case that they took the entire weekend to scan all the rejection/ WL letters. I am with you in hoping/ making myself believe for now that you're right about 3.
Honestly, I have no clue. All I know is I that I know nothing, as Socrates said. There's so much truth to that statement. Sure, we can refer back to last year's cycle all we want, but last year's not this year and speculation gets us nowhere until you have the decision in front of you, in writing.
that being said, I am experiencing slight ups and downs about Gtown and still believe that assuming they really do hold off e-mails for longer than they should, that makes them pretty big dbags
