yeah, I'm from the New Haven area.  So unless something strange happens in that Duke admissions office, I'm probably gonna take the in-state tuition at UConn.

Congratulations Hoya...or...Huskie.  Lucky to be in-state.  UCONN is one of my top choices, but I'm not sure about the $35,000/yr out-of-state tuition.

Wow, so they've started mailing acceptances? Seems like a good choice for you given in-state tuition.

Congrats too.

Congrats! I'm happy to see that they have finally started sending out descisions. Hopefully many more of us will know where we stand by the end of this week.

letter came in a standard size white envelope.  I suspect the mail came early 'cause I"m in state.  And more people will be hearing today.  Good luck!!

Hooray!  Good news for both of within a week!  I might be visiting UVA when you're down in DC, but I think I will be back on Sunday if you're still around we should go Tombsing (like I could stop you)  :P

Ok...so they're reviewing November right now - my app wasn't complete until last week (thanks a lot LSAC for losing my transcripts the first time they were sent)  ???

Are you both going to go FT or PT (if you go there)?

letter came in a standard size white envelope.

I wonder if they sent dings in the same standard size white envelope. Great. When I finally get an envelope from them, I won't immediately have any idea if it's good or bad news.

I got into the FT Day Program.

Good luck, Highway!

if you got in, there will be a pink sheet behind the letter.

I am probably going to FT Day program.  My firm has offered to pay half my tuition if I do the Night program and work full-time for them, but I'm not really considering it.  I don't want my grades to suffer, and it's a 45 min commute.

I wish I weren't in the back woods of NJ. Mail takes an extra 2 days just to get here. Maybe I'll know by Thursday. Congrats to both of you!

Great news guys - They are really rolling in now. My mail is usually delayed a couple of days (I'm hoping that's all it is).

Did any of you get grent information with the acceptance or is that to follow?

How did UConn notify you when your applications were complete? Email? Snail mail? I called them yesterday and they said mine was complete, but I haven't received any confirmation in email/snail mail.

I got an email notification that my file was complete.

They notified me by email that mine was complete. I called last week and was told that it was complete, but "not in our system yet." I think some schools only update their systems on Mondays for complete apps (I heard this somewhere). Anyway, I got an email yesterday. If you were complete last week, you should have been updated and gotten an email. If your stuff just all came in yesterday (or maybe there is a cutoff from the prior week), it may not be "complete" in their system until next Monday.

Of course, I could be completely wrong about this altogether, too. Just a hunch.

Congrats everybody!  I'm happy to see that people are hearing from UConn, and that I'm not the only one who would jump at an offer of admission from them.  I'm still waiting and hoping that the "special consideration" they say they give New England Compact residents will give me the boost I surely need.

Please let us know when you were complete so I have an idea of where they are in the process...

Thanks.

Not really sure when I was complete.  I applied in Mid-October, if that helps.

Got in this weekend! That small envelope freaked me out. This is going to make my descision very difficult.
Title: Re: UConn Acceptance!
Post by: NeverForever on February 14, 2005, 09:56:46 AM
Congratulations, Nerf! I know you've been waiting for this one.

Right now, if all else stays the same, UConn is my first choice.
Title: Re: UConn Acceptance!
Post by: NerfHerder on February 14, 2005, 11:13:04 AM
Thanks - A W&M or UNC acceptance would probably lure ne away from UCONN but right now, UCONN vs Wake is a really tough descision for me. I can't wait until more people get in to UCONN and can tell me about their experience through visits.
