How are you guys planning to receive the outcomes of the 2017 BS decisions?

I was thinking about waiting until the evening of M10 and checking my mailbox then for any packages, since I heard boarding schools send out packages to accepted students. If I get them, then great, I'm accepted. If not, at least I'm somewhat emotionally/mentally for the outcomes when I check my emails later.

I've been thinking about this plan for the past month now, and I'd love to hear what everybody else is planning for M10 and how you're going to find out of you've been accepted/rejected/waitlisted.

    I only applied to Andover so I'm probably going to check the portal when the result comes out- most likely I won't get in and I'll just take a nap or watch a movie/read a book or something chill like that to distract myself. I highly doubt that I'll get in, but if I do then I guess I'll freak out?? I haven't really thought about this much lol but I like your plan!

    I'll be on a day-long field trip to an amusement park on M10! So I've asked my mom to call if she receives any packages. But I think Exeter delivers packages around 6 am ET, so I may be home for that.

    Nice distraction, @monica20! Unless it's changed, Exeter has released via email. You'll get that before a package.
  • monica20monica20 Registered User Posts: 83 Junior Member
    @doschicos I was unaware of an earlier email notification from Exeter! Any idea on the usual time emails are sent?
  • doschicosdoschicos Registered User Posts: 10,732 Senior Member
    In the past, it was fairly early in the morning. They did have a glitch one year - either last year or the year before and things were done differently. I'd look back on old threads to ascertain.

    Exeter emails decisions at 6 am ET.

    @monica20 Great idea for letting your parents tell you! I think it hurts less when your parents are the ones giving you the info. At least for me it does :) Have fun on M10!

    Hopefully I can stop from compulsively updating gateway and checking the mail, but I doubt it.
  • letsgopaletsgopa Registered User Posts: 16 New Member
    I'm going to try to just constantly distract myself and not think about it

    Last year Exeter was about 6 am.

    I have to be at school at 6 am on M10 for robotics competition travel. Guess I am well-distracted already.

    My plan is to stay awake until 10 PM M9 my time, when NMH will release decisions (12:00 am ET), then I will sleep in until ~ 9:00 (not going to school), then I'll just check my computer and see what decisions have been released at that point... good luck everyone :)
