I spoke with a women last week in the admissions office after I got put on hold. She basically said that everyone who interviewed after mid-Feb was put on hold. They have not given an acceptance in two months. She said that basically they wont make any decisions until after the 15th of May and then they will start handing out acceptances. After they have handed a bunch out then some people will be put on the wait list while the rest get rejected.

Maybe more people will start withdrawing if UC can actually get the award letters out. I'm starting to feel doubtful about if I'll actually receive it before the 15th.

I talked with the financial office last week and they said that you should receive your award letter 2 or 3 days before may 15.

UC wants signed withdrawal letters via snailmail...that really doesn't give ppl much time to decide AND get their possible withdrawals in by may 15th...

I hope that's a worst case scenario, not the approximate date for people near Ohio. It usually takes me around a week to get mail from UC. I might have to withdraw before I even find out the award information, if worst comes to worst.

I withdrew an acceptance from UC 1 1/2 weeks ago... hope that helps. Good luck, UC seemed like a great school.
