That's pretty cold.  Dinging you on the phone.  Well maybe it's colder to do it by the good old mail, I don't know.  I wouldn't want someone actually telling me I got dinged though

Do you think it makes any difference if  you send your letter of continued interest
via email or through the mail?

Acceptances: ______________
Deferred: Brooklyn
WL: Rutgers Camden
Pending: Too many to mention.
Most Hopeful: USF
Where is my rejection letter?: BU, UCLA

I just called Rutgers Newark and they said they would be starting to review
applications again starting tomorrow.  Their next round of acceptances/rejections
will probably go out in a month.

I am asking for some opinions on this...  I have heard from only half of the schools I have applied to, with success.  Does the fact that I haven't heard from the remaining four mean that I am going to be rejected at those schools?  My Apps were complete by 1/12.  Thanks  for the help.

Dinged at Dickenson via e-mail today. :( So, its off to Widener I go for Fall 2004!!! ;D ;D

I am soooo relieved that this process is over. I'm am a bit disappointed at the dings, but I still count myself lucky for the one acceptance I did receive.

Good Luck to everyone else still waiting!

I emailed my letter of continued interest at 7pm to Hastings and indicated I was sending it via us mail also..fortunately I got a phone call before I was even able to make it to the post office the next morning so I didn't have to waste the .37. 

I also emailed USC to ask them what was up and got an email back w/in 24 hrs...saying that they'd received the email.  As a result, I put that letter in the mail.

I am a complete advocate of the letter of continued interest but it may also help if you visit.  I made a trip and was able to speak to someone for close to 30 minutes just talking myself up.  I am sure it was the visit/letter combination that got me into the program.

a phone call saying you were in or out?
