Email acceptance
« on: April 15, 2004, 08:41:22 PM »
hello all.
i have read from some of the posts that some schools send out an email acceptance before mailing it via snail mail.

is this true for most schools?

and if so... what about SMU and Houston...???

I think that you will find that the vast majority of schools does not notify by email.  Most schools are still in the dark ages and prefer snail mail.  I applied to 15 schools and only got one acceptance by email. (Berkeley)  I don't know anything about SMU and Houston specifically.

God, I don't think many people here could handle e-mail acceptances.  It's bad enough checking the mailbox compulsivly, until the mail is delivered.  How would the poor souls who live for that one moment each day manage to do ANYTHING if an acceptance could come at anytime.  People wouldn't even post here anymore, they'd be so busy clicking refresh in their mail program. . .   ;)

Brooklyn e-mailed my admission offer before the letter. That's the only school I applied to that did so.

I think Duke e-mails too, but I didn't apply there, I've just heard it from others.

Brooklyn did the same for me... I think Santa Clara did as well.

DU does.  CU doesn't.  Those are the only two I know about...

Santa Clara emailed me...sort of.  They invited me to an a reception for admitted students before sending me an acceptance letter or email.

Rutgers doesn't email but they do have a site where you can check your status. I check it about 15 times a day and cringe each time I hit the submit button. My wife keeps yelling at me to stop looking at it. Not sure if I really do want to find out from a website or email if I get in or not.
