Are you getting calls from schools that accepted you?

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.

So far, I've been accepted to only one school (Rush). Since my acceptance, I've been receiving emails and phone calls from the Dean and other faculty. Sometimes, they call just to see if i have any questions and nothing else. I have to admit, they are making me feel very special and I'm starting to lean toward enrolling there this Fall.

Since i've only been accept to one school, I don't know if this is an usual practice that every school partake in to recruit students. Is anyone on SDN getting the royal treatment from schools they've been accepted to?

I just got accepted to Dartmouth last week, and even though they haven't called me yet, they sent me a handwritten letter a couple of days after my acceptance. That was pretty different. I really love that school. :love:

I got home today only to receive a message from my roommate:

Someone from Rush called.

That is the message they left. "Just tell him someone from Rush called."

I am thinking about calling back and asking, "Yes, I received a call from 'someone', is he in?"

My acceptance letter was dated 12/27 -- I'm counting it as a great stocking stuffer.

I got an email from my Ohio State interviewer today. I am not sure if he tried to call me (my cell phone is screwed up and sometime doesn't ring).

MS2's from BU called to congratulating students on their acceptance and to ask if they had any questions.
