This is random...but have any other admits this cycle received a free T-shirt from DePaul??
I got one in the mail a few weeks after my acceptance w/ scholarship; it definitely cheered me up a lot since it came the same day as a waitlist notification.

As per their policy that was stated in my complete email, they only give admissions decisions through snail mail. However, they do give you a lot of info about when you will be getting your letter. Status goes from "Incomplete" to "Complete- Decision in 2-3 Weeks" to "Decision Sent." You can only see online that the decision was sent, but not what the decision is. Don't have my letter in yet, but these are my dates:
Received: 11/30
Complete: 12/7
Decision Sent: 12/16 (But mailings say 12/17, so I'm going by that)

I'm not expecting the decision in until about Tuesday or Wednesday. Hope that helps!



Yeah, exactly. So what makes me curious is this

For those inquiring about seat deposits on the status checker- It does not show up on my window, but I do not think it ever has. I am still awaiting the actual hard copy letter- East Coast. Goodluck to everyone!

Direct quote from their email:

"Pursuant to our policies, admission decisions are only made available in writing and delivered by regular mail service."

Hate to call out Anthony23, but I'm a bit curious why he would receive different treatment than every other applicant. Care to comment Anthony?

Also: Funny you mention the discrepency between mailings and status. My status said App Complete - Decision in 2-3 Weeks 12/9, but mailings show 12/10. I got Decision Letter Sent 12/16, but mailings shows 12/16. I really hope it shows up monday. I'm leaving my UG town to go home for the week, so if it's not here tomorrow, im gonna go home with no good news :(

I had the same thing for the file completed status. I went complete on the status checker on 12/7, but didn't get the email until 12/10. As far as the mailings for Decision Letter Sent, since mine, if I remembered correctly, got changed late in the day, I'm thinking that they threw my (hopefully large :D ) envelope on the stack, but it didn't get picked up until the next day. I'm also hoping I get it soon, I'm going to my hometown on Wednesday...

I wish I could tell you why, but I do not know. My status checkers went through the same process that everyone seems to have. I am not at my permanent address right now, so unsure of what has been received as far as hard copy goes.

It may be because I am a URM? I wasn't at home to receive the voicemail that was left, but my father played it for me over the phone, and as stated earlier, an e-mail was in my box. Perhaps, they assumed I had already received the letter? Or perhaps something is strange... ?

Anyhow, I wouldn't stress it.

What did the e-mail say exactly? Anyway you could paste it over here (editing out any personal info, of course)?

+1. I'm really curious about DePaul's complete break in policy.

If you do not mind saying so, where in the US are you (area, not specific state)? I'm just wondering when I'll be getting mine in... Good luck with the WL!

It was an e-mail from the individuals in Multicultural Affairs- not the admissions board- if that helps to calm nerves. To sum it up, it offers a welcome to a support system and just an extra "if you need us, here we are." I also got rejected from Univ. of Miami if that helps any... getting on a random forum to lie is not exactly my style.

I am still awaiting the official letter. I do not think they violated their stated process (which I am familiar with)... I just think they assumed it would have reached me, and it seems the mail is not arriving anywhere quickly.

I visited DePaul and most other Chicago based schools in October. It seems like an excellent service oriented program. Good luck again, to everyone in their process.

Just got my "welcome to DePaul envelope. No $$ though-surprising when comparing numbers.

Accepted today via t-shirt. Did anyone else get accepted this way? I know other people got t-shirts, but did another envelope come separately that gave information and a full acceptance letter?

Has anyone been waitlisted? I'm curious about whether they send you a status check log-in if you opted to be considered for the PT program and remain on the waitlist.

I would like to live 6 blocks from DePaul. I love Chicago, and I miss it so!
