Temple sends em out a few days before the 1st so that you actually get it on the 1st. That's what Brian said any way.

call the school on dec 1st and ask them if you need to keep shopping or not.
Lets get a list going:

1) Temple sends em out so you get one in the mail Dec 1st.
2) Indiana says to call them.
3) Louisville emails you dec 1st at 12 am
4)



HEY MODS CAN YOU STICKY THIS TILL DEC 1ST?

no...i don't want to call them on dec 1st...the sounds so annoying...and there's probably going to be enough freaks calling on dec 1 as it is...i don't want to add to the list. don't want to annoy them in this way..

Good advice.

You've already waited months, so being patient a few mroe hours or days is worth it (especially since you'll be dealing with these people for four more years). Some programs call, some mail, some email. Regardless of the method of each program's choice, you'll generally hear by the 3rd or 5th (if you're in) at the latest. Many schools do NOT contact wait-list applicants, though. And the last thing you want to do if on a wait list is call and bug the AA office.

And for the record, UNC sends a letter (and occasionally calls).

they said they won't mail anything before Dec. 1, unlike schools that mail letters to arrive on Dec. 1.

As for the Texas schools, I've heard that calling is a waste of time - you have to wait for the letter in the mail.

From what I understand, they mail them out on Dec. 1st. Some Houston students told me the earliest any of them heard was Dec. 3rd.

As for San Antonio, the director of admissions said she puts the letters in the mailbox at 12a.m. on Dec. 1.

I received a letter each day from December 2nd through December 4th last year (I lived in Austin). First letter was Baylor, then SA, then Houston.

I know that last year boston jumped the gun by a couple days. Many people got Acceptance letters two or three days before december first. UNC called people on the first of December last year. Tufts and CASE sent out letters on the first.

Any idea if UNC claimed to be meeting to make decisions on Dec 7th last year as well? Or is that unique to this cycle.

Many schools mail out acceptances a few days prior to December 1st so that you will receive THE packet on that date. I had a few in my mailbox that afternoon. :D It's like Christmas came early to my house, and I hope all of you will have that feeling as well! Hang in there! :thumbup:

I understand that they mail out offer letters on Dec 1st, but when do the rejection letters go out? From my understanding, if you do not recieve a letter early dec then it does not mean you didn't get in, but rather that you are not among their 1st choice applicants. Does anyone know if this is correct?

rejection: school generally do not mail out rejection letters until the class is full. some schools will reject candidates early in the process if they have absolutely no chance of getting in. obviously, this strategy varies from school to school.

acceptance: acceptance letters will come in waves. for example, one school i interviewed at said they will interview 130 applicants from Oct-Feb for 60 slots. in early december, they will offer positions to the top 30 applicants. depending on how many place deposits, they will then send out another wave of acceptance letters. this process repeats until the class is full. this strategy probably doesn't vary much from school to school.

some schools are really weird and they will never reject you or contact you at all in the whole cycle. so its very hard to tell that people would actually receieve and official acceptance or rejection from the schools.

UIC said that they meet Dec. 5th, so dont expect anything from them until at least the 7th at earliest.

Iowa told me yesterday that they mail acceptances on Dec 1st.

Hope that helps. If anyone knows anything about Marquette or Minnesota I'd appreciate it. :)
