Admit It! Things don’t get easier once you’ve actually submitted your applications (or at least the stress level doesn’t decrease as much as you thought). You’re on pins and needles wanting to know if your materials arrived, when decisions will be released, what those decisions will be. Well, with each passing week we are getting closer and closer to being able to answer all of those questions for you.
As for the status of your application materials, we are so close to completing all applications (to date we have only about 1700 applications still being processed meaning we are trying to match your Common App with other required materials– nearly 90% of our freshman applications are complete and out for review). Remember, you will be emailed either way regarding your application status. Either you will receive an email in the next few weeks letting you know your application is complete, or you will receive an email letting you know what materials are missing. If you receive the latter email, do not worry. Just submit the requested materials as soon as possible. No penalty or disadvantage will be assessed.
Once all applications are complete and reviewed, my colleagues and I will begin our Committee process and finalize all decisions. We anticipate being able to release decisions by early April at the latest. Decisions will be released electronically via email. Once we have an exact date for decision notification, we will post that date to our website, this blog, and our social media outlets. I will also continue to blog on the types of decisions we make and how we made them.
Until then, try to relax, take a deep breath, and just enjoy this time when applications and college decisions do not have to be on the forefront of your mind. That’s what April is for.
