    Hello everyone, so today we are 16 days away from December 1st.

    Given the obsessive nature of most of us, I thought it would be nice to have a centralized thread where we list the exact time that acceptances from various schools went out last year so that everyone will have an idea of when they will be coming out this year. I have painstakingly gone through the School Specific threads of each school and the consolidated Acceptance/Rejection thread from last year's cycle to get this information.

    Yeah, obviously things could be different this year and the timings might be a little off but it should stay decently consistent, though I can't guarantee this. There are a ton of schools so if current D1s can help keep this post accurate by posting their acceptance notification times from last year (along with time zone), and post it here I will keep this post updated.

    I wasn't able to find last year's threads for Texas schools and for Puerto Rico, so if someone has that info, it'd be appreciated.

    I hope this thread saves some of you guys some time by having all the info consolidated in one place. If this thread makes you anxious, feel free to hit the back button. ;) :stop: And yes, I had literally nothing to do all day today so I spent the time putting this thread together. Come at me bro. :cigar:

    Also, if you're an anxious pre-dent like me, please join us so we can be anxious together in the Countdown to December 1st Thread !

    All times below are Pacific Standard Time (PST). Assume all dates are 12/1 unless otherwise noted.

    To convert between time zones:
    If you are mountain time = the time below + 1 hours
    If you are central time = the time below + 2 hrs
    If you are eastern time = the time below + 3 hrs

    Impressive work. I'm wondering if this will be different this year because of more schools using the AADSAS portal for secondary application? When I interviewed at MWU-AZ they mentioned that the AADSAS portal will be updated at midnight.

    Yes you're right, I have a feeling that notification times/methods will vary for a good number of schools. Especially since it wasn't exactly the same for the previous cycle compared to the cycle before that. Some schools will stay exactly the same, some might call later or earlier in the day, and some will change their method of notification. In addition to giving ya'll a rough estimate, I was also trying to illustrate that most schools will not be updating us exactly at midnight and that we can expect the majority to notify us either the morning or afternoon of Dec 1st.

    Thanks for the info about MWU-AZ, I updated the post!

    Thanks! <3

    Do some schools really call you after midnight?

    The schools that notify applicants at midnight will most likely communicate either through the AADSAS portal and/or email. The ones that start making calls early morning usually try to take the time zone you are located at into consideration. E.g. some of the east coast schools start calling 3-4AM PST but will start calling east to west.

    At the Pitt interview this year, they mentioned they would change the portal status on 12/1 midnight EST.

    Awesome, updated. Is it the AADSAS portal or does Pitt have their own portal?
