    Well, what is the tradition in your circle of friends? Do you celebrate on acceptance day morning or post acceptance day eve? Seniors who took the DAT and finished all the hard courses last term don';t count. We know you have been on a constant toot since then.

    Beagle,

    You WILL get in. Don't lose hope. Remember three months ago after your DAT you thought that you wouldn't even get an interview. Well you got more interviews than some people. Don't worry, I have full faith that you will get in this year. Take it day by day, don't stress out about things you can't control.

    I honestly try NOT to think about acceptances or the D-Day for two reasons:

    1) I get so excited that I find myself day-dreaming in my classes, and I near completely loose all motivation to finish my classes and graduate.

    2) I get terribly worried that I won't get any acceptances.

    Enough said.

    Now thats its T- 11, a crazy thought crossed my mind.

    Is it possible that schools could not let you know one way or another on Dec. 2, and instead just wait on your application and see how things go with other applicants. I mean, is it a gaurentee that I'm going to get anything at all on December 2nd... what do ya'll think?

    I feel like I am a relatively borderline candidate, and I really really want to get in somewhere... but waiting any longer than I have to will make me lose my mind.

    Rovert,

    It isn't an absolute gurantee that you will receive word precisely on that date, although if you have interviewed fairly early in the cycle, then it almost IS a gurantee.

    Keep in mind that schools can still send you a notification that you've been waitlisted, although if you are going to be accepted then most schools will notify you on Dec. 2 (or throughout that week) of that action.

    That is one of the benefits of interviewing early. By now, schools have been interviewing for 2-3 (or 4!) months, and they've had plenty of time to judge the applicant pool for the year -- most schools will make an action on your file (postivite or negative), whether than waitlisting you!

    Just to extend my previous thought: if you have interviewed this month at a school that began interviews in August or early September, then you might not hear from the school until Mid-December.

    It all boils down to how the admissions committees meet and determine acceptances. Don't be depressed if you don't get something on Dec. 1 from your favorite school! For example, Creighton told me that the *soonest* they notify candidates for acceptance into their RDEP program is Mid-January (and most likely February 1).

    Don't forget to check-in the forum at around 9am California time on Dec 2. At that time, east coast schools should be done calling.
    I'm starting my interview trip tomorrow. I don't think that I'll hear anything from any school on Dec 2. Hic....hic......Can someone lend me a shoulder? Or I have to find Captain Hook?

    Question..
    What will actually happen on Dec 2? Will letters be mailed out?phone calls made? what is the process here?
    it seems like if the letters are mailed out then it'll take another few days to find out. this infosource was suppose to let us know but i guess that isn't working?

    Some schools, like UK, said that we might even hear Saturday because they are mailing stuff on Wednesday or Thursday. So that would make it 4 days until I might hear something :)
