Collegesearchmom.....the waiting, yes, is very hard. And my warning is this: last year the EA decisions were due on the 15th of January, and my daughter was so hoping to find something in the mailbox. Translate to mailed the 15th, and then with MLK Day, it took even a few more days for the news to come. That kid was by the mailbox waiting, and worrying, and making me a bit crazy for several days. Thus, you may not hear on the 31st if everything goes out by snail mail. Stay calm and remember that it happened like that last year. My daughter checked the Voyager, too, and there was nothing in there to give her a hint about admission before the envelope came. Even if some people post that they know something (esp. internationals -- I think they hear by email before snail mail), but tell your daughter to hang in there (yeah, impossible to do, right?
