    I'm going to be gone for most of December, out of the country so my cell won't work anyway. Since most acceptance decisions require you to accept their offer within 1-2 weeks, should I email schools and let them know I'll be gone? How are fellow vacationers doing this?

    I was wondering about this - I won't be out of North America so I can still check my e-mail but my "mailing address" will be vacant for a good 3 weeks. Thoughts anyone?

    I have the same issue. When I interviewed at a couple schools the admissions assistant asked (or it was on a form) and I wrote down the dates for my contact info. I am not sure what to do for Stanford who I haven't heard from regarding an interview and one of the schools that didn't ask during the interview. Forwarding mail can take 2 weeks to go into effect...
