Is it appropriate to email colleges about when they notify you of decisions?

    At this point, I wouldn't start emailing. Look through threads here as mentioned to get an idea & check PTCAS information about the schools. Some list in there when they start notifying. If it gets to be Feb/March with no response & you have to make a decision about a deposit somewhere else, sure go ahead and politely email to find out where they are in the decision process as you're being required to make decisions at that point. Right now, I'd say it's just overkill.

      Let's all put our heads together and build a time machine! This is more stressful than applying!
