    The decisions for grinnell college were supposed to be uploaded on the 22nd. How did you guys learn about yours?
  • LucieTheLakieLucieTheLakie Posts: 1,124Registered User Senior Member
    Some students received "early-writes." The vast majority of applicants won't be notified before the 22nd. Hang tight.
  • Guille19Guille19 Posts: 357Registered User Member
    This is wierd... Did everyone got an email saying results would be in on March 22nd? I didn't receive any email and I'm an international student. Hope that doesn't means anything lol
  • dancingwriterdancingwriter Posts: 237Registered User Junior Member
    @Guille19 The date's in the email where they sent your Grinnell PIN and the link to the application status check.
  • Guille19Guille19 Posts: 357Registered User Member
    @dancingwriter indeed... lol. I apologize for my ignorance, and thank you!
  • ocflavocflav Posts: 125Registered User Junior Member

  • dancingwriterdancingwriter Posts: 237Registered User Junior Member
