How did most people get acceptance or rejection notices - email or written letter? I’m wondering if I need to be obsessively checking my mailbox or inbox.

Most were by e-mail.

This would be a good poll question, btw.

Imagine if it was a rejection singing telegram:

"We just wanted to sayyyy

Womp womp woooommmmm

There's always another daayyyyy"
Would it be salt in the wound or a comfort!?

1 school only by mail
2 schools did it by email

The best school was the University of Tennessee! My interview ended at 12:45, took about 3.5 hrs to get back to my university. While eating dinner I get a call telling me I got in.

When I was applying to pharmacy school, all the schools I applied to told me of their decision via regular snail mail. Email acceptances are ok, but email rejections are simply tactless.


Just my opinion.

Same here!! I missed the call though since I was on the plane so I had to call back to ask.

I got an acceptance letter within 3 days. They must have mailed it the afternoon I interviewed. Two other acceptance's took over a month before I got an email.
