Method of Acceptance Database
« on: December 02, 2004, 02:43:02 PM »
I propose the start of a database that catalogs how/when each school notifies their applicants (whether accepted or denied).

Please add whatever info you can in this thread.

I will kick it off:

Akron: Accepted via phone call and email in mid november.




Please add what you can! If we know what method to expect, the wait will be easier!

You know, everybody could just post this on LSN, but just to play fair:

Washburn--letter dated Nov. 23rd.  Received via snail-mail over Thanksgiving holiday.  I called and they said that scholarship decisions typically go out 2-3 weeks after acceptance letters.

U of Akron--also via phone and email.  On Nov. 22nd.  Kind of expected a follow-up via snail mail and haven't gotten one yet.  Oh well.  Scholarship $$ done in February.
Accepts: Akron, Washburn, Hamline, Valpo, Mercer, Baylor (Sum), Arkansas, Ohio Northern, Tennessee,  Ave Maria, U of St. Thomas, St. Louis, S Carolina, Hofstra, U Florida.
Rejects: George Mason, UGA (blah).

I'm going to Tennessee!!!!!!

Michigan: Acceptance via mail. Lots of handwritten notes on the acceptance letter (much like the invitation to apply). Kinda large package. Package had a strange, unwieldy, see-though blue folder. I tried my best to use it, but it is just so darn non-functional. Package contained supplementary info on students with disabilities, financial aid, acceptance return form, CD-ROM with info on UM, and a link to the accepted students website.

Oklahoma: Acceptance via mail. Small envelope containing just a cover letter and acceptance return form. Given a VERY near date by which I had to accept the offer.

Texas: Received HOLD notification via email and status website.

Michigan: what BigTex said, except I also got an email follow up about a week after my letter arrived to make sure I'd gotten it. Not sure if the email was supposed to come before or after the letter...(it said if I hadn't gotten their letter in a week from the email, to call the office)

GULC (FT EA): regular sized business cream envelope with just a letter (with a handwritten note about how much he liked my statements and that they hoped I'd go to GULC where they share my commitment to service) and a sheet with accepted students reception dates. Kind of wish they'd sent more info...Michigan's package was fun!

Tex, I think I'm pretty much set on going there. I still have tons of pending apps, but I'm thrilled with my Mich acceptance, and it seems like it will be my best offer (it's a small miracle I even got in so soon). Since I don't have a family to worry about like you do, I can afford to wait a bit longer to decide and compare financial aid offers, but I doubt they'll be that different. Don't know how I feel about the cold though  :)

i have a feeling i'm about to annoy people still waiting...

boalt (accepted) - phone call from the dean, said will send the packet in mid-jan.

gtown (accepted) - rec'd a letter in a creamish thin #10 envelope, two pages, cute little note about my "impressive" academic record, esp in light of my activities.

michigan (accepted) - same packet as already described, no e-mail yet.  lexy got the e-mail about a week after acceptance.

duke (accepted) - e-mail from the dean, said packet went out that day too.  this was tuesday, so i'll prob get the packet today or tomorrow.

USC (accepted) - fat packet in the mail, had a folder type thing with letter and info about visiting, financial aid info, a response form, and an alumni newsletter.
i am officially the biggest nerd of LSD!  ::gleaming with pride, as i shine my yoda trophy::
