    Hey all...

    This hasn't happened to me but I was wondering if anybody's student interviewer emailed them hinting at an acceptance prior to the actual formal acceptance date.

    It doesn't count if they emailed you out of the blue and said they liked meeting you because one cannot determine whether they emailed all their interviewees or not.

    I was thinking of something more concrete... something where you could palpably feel that they were trying to tell you that you'd been accepted.

    Sorry if this question is confusing, but I am curious if this has happened to anyone before.

    Thanks!

    Some people just posted today that their student interviewers eMailed to tell them they got in. I don't know if this qualifies as "before your acceptance" because maybe you mean in a premonition sort of way? --Trek

    I know this is not exactly what you were asking for- but one of my adult (not student) interviewers sent me a really nice postcard about a week after my interview- from a museum he had visited that he said reminded him of me. I was glad he did that because I did not get my offical acceptance until almost 2 months later.

    This is also not exactly related to your question but... I got a thank you letter from the dean of admissions at Columbia thanking me for my thank you letter (which was addressed to my interviewer, not to him). But I got waitlisted so I guess it didn't actually mean anything.

    I got an email from a student on the UIC adcom about 5 days before I actually got the acceptance in the mail. It was about four weeks after I had interviewed. The email was a recruiting bit, telling me why UIC is great and offering to answer any questions I might have. It was a little odd, but I guess I was supposed to have received the acceptance by then. I don't know what the delay was due to.

    Good luck,

    Adam

    And Trek:
    Premonition is usually used to describe a forboding feeling. You cannot have a premonition of good news.
    i stand to be corrected though :D

    :) You are a good sport Trek.
    You know I never really got around to figuring out the editing function ("edi" and "ting"); It remains a mystery to me. I'm doomed to a life of iterative postings :)
    Yes, you don't want to have a premonition about acceptance letters :D
    The premonition ones usually come in envelopes so thin that they can cut like knives

    Ben01 and Quake- I am female and I thought it was a little weird at first- but I think he was just trying to think of somthing to write about- I talked about art alot at my interview- I'm an art history minor. Plus- he was really old!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

    From Dr. G's initial description it does sound a little creepy but it seems as though it might just have been part of a genuine thank you--although probably not the best choice of wording on his part.

    Dr. G.
    Given the interviewers age. I'm willing to believe that it was all in good faith. Cheers.
