Ok, First every night I check my email account for notifications of acceptance. Seeing none, I then go the schools' websites to check my status online. However, after FSU notified me by snail mail that I was accepted, their status check still says just "complete" with no mention at all about acceptance (a full week after the decision was rendered). That got me thinking- Has anybody ever really been notified first through status check that they were accepted before they received an email or a letter confirmation. Am I just simply wasting another step and adding extra disappointment by bothering to view my status on schools websites after I received no news via email or mail.
If some schools do notify you first of acceptance by their online status check before emails and letters, what schools are they? Georgia? Alabama? Iowa? Are there any other schools that do both, but email or mail you first before updating your online status check? You can imagine I'm trying to save myself any added frustration at this point so let me know.
