"statistical purposes"
« on: February 13, 2007, 07:35:29 PM »
I was wondering if anyone else received an acceptance letter that stated

"For statistical purposes please send an email to ___ indicating if at this time you tend to enroll at ___.  Also send an email if at this time you do not intend to enroll."

It also says it is not a formal acceptance or withdrawal. Is this a T-4's way of making sure they don't fill up their class wtih 170/3.9's who don't show up? Or do T1's do this too?

I withdrew from Indiana a few weeks ago and this weekend the dean of admissions sent me an email asking where I would be going instead "for statistical purposes."  I founf this kind of odd.

a bit odd, but it makes sense. i'm sure they want to know who their competition is for the best students.

U Denver did this for me too, as well as asking their scholarship offers etc. I didn't send it in.
