I'm new to this board but I just wanted to let everyone know how odd my eventual acceptance to Davis was (at least compared to what people experience here).
Went complete and under review back in NOVEMBER...didn't hear a single word from them until I emailed them a week ago basically saying "Listen, tuition deposits for other schools are fastly approaching and if I have to wait much longer there's just no way Davis can stay in the running" (Nicer, politer, more formal...but that was the gist of it).
I got an email back saying a decision should come out in the next 1-2 days and that I should check status checker for the actual decision after 6pm each night. Fine.
So I do just that. The first day after...still under evaluation. Then the second day, today, as in 45 minutes ago, I check and all it says is "Decision has been mailed". I thought that Davis ALWAYS told you your actual decision first via status checker...so this was highly aggravating considering it's already April.
I had no interest in waiting however many days it would take to arrive via snail mail, so I simply tried going into the admitted students part of the website....and it worked! So either they accidentally let me in (which just 2 days ago I was blocked from)...or I'm a new admit to Davis!
If their administration is run anything like their admissions dept, then I am very worried. A visit is certainly in order.
That sounds encouraging.
However, I have to wonder whether it'll be of benefit to any of us to attempt what you just did. I'd rather not come off too strong to them as my numbers are anything but stellar and my wait-list status with Hastings isn't anymore encouraging. Perhaps if a number of us could send letters to them, it could put pressure on them to get the ball rolling without compromising whatever integrity remains in their adcomm process? I'm more inclined to be believe they're well aware of the approaching initial seat deposit deadlines of April 1st and April 15th for many schools. Only question that we've been belaboring is, what's been holding them up?
