Pomona RD notification mid February?????

edited February 2011 in Pomona College
I just received an email from Pomona stating, "We will notify you of the Admissions Committee’s decision in mid-February." I applied regular. Are admissions coming out early or is this different. Did anyone else get this???

    I got the same thing and was very confused. Maybe they mean mid-March?

    I received it too. Pomona notifies by mail so since it is already mid-February, that means any day now. So exciting!

    They probably just re-used the template from the Early Decision II applicants and forgot to change it. =P I estimate that our decision will come in late March or early April.

    haha I just got this too! Im pretty sure it is a mistake . . . .right?
  • Matrix123Matrix123 Posts: 290Registered User Junior Member
    NOOOOOO!! Say it isn't so. Unbearable to wait any longer.

    I just got that email too and got really excited for ten seconds before I realized that it was clearly a mistake
  • Matrix123Matrix123 Posts: 290Registered User Junior Member
    Why do we think it's a mistake? Did Pomona post elsewhere at some point that RD decisions would come out next month?

    i got this email too and i'm RD...it's probably a mistake, i'm going to call the admissions office on monday and find out - but i hope it's not a mistake...i cant stand waiting!!
  • Matrix123Matrix123 Posts: 290Registered User Junior Member
    And we will all be anxiously checking the mail until we know for sure whether it is an error or not. Are there any EDII people out there that can verify whether their e-mails said the same thing?
  • Matrix123Matrix123 Posts: 290Registered User Junior Member
    I just checked the EDII thread. Their letters went out priority mail on 2/10. So, this means what? That the current e-mail is correct because 2/10 wouldn't likely be considered mid-February? Or, that it just seems inconceivable that Pomona would already be ready to mail out RD and thus, it must be a mistake? Torture!

    ^ Just got the email too. Pretty sure it was a mistake. The page whose link is given below says that the notification date for RD applicants is April 5th.

    Yeah, like lolalago I was extremely excited and flabbergasted until I realized that this isn't possible. Man, I do not want to wait any longer! Argh!
