I also received the same email... I finally calmed down about it. Agreed, the wording of it sucked but it's kinda cool that they are corresponding with applicants.

I think I will most likely be going to the event after work. I wonder how many prospective students will be there...

I got that e-mail too. It freaked me out before I opened it. Mostly any e-mail from a school that doesn't have "Congratulations" in the subject line scares me, and IU would have been a surprise rejection for me.

My eyes also jumped to the phrases "bad news" and "increase in applications," which are rejection letter boilerplate.

But I admire the idea, letting us know that they're aware they are taking a long time and are sorry about that. It's the thought that counts.

Yeah, same email, same response. That first line is really strange, but now I think its pretty funny. I wonder if they realize how crazy we all are and how much that wording freaked us out!

If you truly are a Cubs fan, you should definitely go to IU Law so we can commiserate together. See below photo of my room and observe obvious Cubs allegiance.

I figured it was a rejection after that but they just apologize for being behind in reviewing apps.

Apology accepted IU-B!!

I did not get the email. I hope that means my acceptance is in the mail, not that I am rejected and don't know it yet.

Forgot to mention that when I gave them a call yesterday to inquire about the status of my application they said they would be sending out an email explaining the delay in decisions. Like many of you, I received the email as well.

So I got an e-mail this morning to congratulate me "once again" on my admission to IU and invite me to an alumni event, which would have made much more sense if I had been congratulated a first time. Is this a mistake or did my acceptance letter get lost in the mail? Anyone else have this happen?

EDIT: Read back a few pages. I guess this has happened to others. nm.

I'm curious as to what kinds of numbers are getting substantial $$ from IUB. Anyone care to elucidate me?

Has anyone tried negotiating with Indiana for more merit aid? Had any success/failure?

I have heard earlier in the cycle they were very receptive to it, but now they are running low on money so they are less likely to match scholarships, however I have not seen any evidence indicating those with numbers similar to those who received money earlier in the cycle are not receiving similar amounts of money.

Couldn't hurt to give it a shot though!

I think someone mentioned this before, but is the travel assistance only available to those who got a full scholarship? I haven't gotten the packet in the mail yet, but I got an e-mail from Dani congratulating me and talking about travel assistance.

Also got this. It said I would be receiving, if I hadn't already, an admissions/scholarship package. I wish I would have known a bit earlier, since I'm already slated to be at the William and Mary admits day on March 27. I will be fairly near IUB before then, though, so I can definitely still make my way around. Now I'm on pins and needles over what the scholarship will be.

Since someone said decisions were mailed on Thursday/Friday and IU-B uses priority mail, we should get our admissions packets tomorrow.
