GW Official RD Decisions **2017**

Sammvp1Sammvp1 Posts: 175Registered User Junior Member
This is where people can post their admission decisions when they come out tonight! Please don't post conversation, this way it's easy for next year's applicants to view decisions without searching through the other threads.


Please post stats a long with the decision, and if you can, indicate whether or not you could view the "accepted students" link visible to some students yesterday morning.

Thanks, and GOODLUCK!!!! :)
