I was inspired by the fact that I really have no idea when in March I should be expecting to hear from schools. For my own sanity, I would like to avoid a state of constant anxiety throughout the month of March (it's a long month!) if at all possible. Maybe this list will help focus our nail-biting/obsessive mail checking into specific days and weeks, instead of being spread out over the entire 31 days.

Dates when final decisions will be made (including those schools that make decisions in Feb):

Columbia: March 1
Cornell:
Harvard:
Northwestern:
NYU: rolling but all decisions made by Feb 15
UPenn: week of March 19
Yale:

Great, less than a month until my Columbia rejection letter! (All I can say is I was completely hopped up on cold meds during my interview, which apparently destroyed my ability to not say the very first thing that popped into my head, and it went downhill from there).

I was told at the Harvard interview that their "goal" is always to get the acceptances out by mid-February, rather than mid-March. They never achieved this goal in the past, but this year I was told (by my interviewer) that they're really going to push to get things out earlier.

that would be sweet...assuming I get accepted that is.
 
I was told by my Harvard interviewer that I would hear back March 9th.

Weird that other people have been hearing "ranges" of dates.

extremely precise numerical information. Otherwise, they suffer anxiety attacks. Hence, the exact date, March 9. Liberal arts majors can deal with more ambiguity in their lives because they have more flexible emotional temperments - so Harvard just gives them date ranges.
 
anyone know about duke?

They said their goal was to mail them out at the end of February so we'd get them very early in March. However, seeing as it's Duke, I hesitate to add this year's date to the list.
 
where did the columbia date come from?

Hehehe, or maybe they give us all different information so they can track us down on SDN when we post what we were told *eyes*

But you're right. I was kind of disappointed that they didn't give me a cutoff time of day by which we can expect notification. UCSD gave us that:p
 
where did the columbia date come from?

All over. I heard it at interview, saw it on their website... past years' threads always seem to indicate March 1st is the day. I'm hoping the mail gets to Philly on either Friday or Saturday... because I'm going to be in a foul mood if I have to wait until the 5th for any news.


*panic attack* :scared:
 
ya at duke they said late feb were decisions that should be mailed out and received by early march...however, i read in a thread after i interviewed in late nov that others were being told mid march or even late march so.... i think its up in the air... we can just put it tentatively at march 30th and if we don't hear by then... u have been waitlisted :thumbdown:

where is that duke estimate from???
 
Where/when did you hear about the Feb 9th around 12 decision notification for Brown? I interviewed in early January and was told merely that the next decision would occur in mid-February. I also presume this means a status page notification?

I can't help you on the date of notification, but I'd definitely keep an eye on the status page (that's how I heard, a few days before the letter arrived via snail mail).
 
Bump again ... paging melissainsd
 
Sorry, I was elsewhere. I will repeat what I put in a PM to KardiacKiehl:

The assistant dean of admissions told us when we interviewed. Barbara (the associate director of admissions) said she would post it online as soon as the meeting was over. I don't know- I'm not in a hurry to be rejected.

That was shat I was told. There is no way to be sure other than to call, and I think I would rather wait until tomorrow to call (if it isn't posted). Good luck to all.:luck:

Where'd the Yale estimate come from? I just hope these dates are correct or late. I'd hate to have them go weeks past their estimates as in other threads.

If I recall correctly from the interview, I think they said they were aiming for March 9th to mail the Harvard letters (which I guess would be at the end of the second week in March)? I wonder if the second week means the second full week or just the second week including that tiny first week...
