First post -- DD submitted all on 10/29 and had the Gibson Congratulations note on 10/31 and received her letter -- with a Leadership financial award -- on 11/5. We are in CT. Congratulations to all. Having gone through this process twice before, I am extremely impressed by Tulane's process. In most cases, the applicants apply wondering " which one of the schools which I believe is a good fit will want me? " with trepedation and anxiety. Tulane doesn't wait until all of the applications are in, as other schools do, to create a competition among students. Rather, Tulane takes it one application at a tme and if there is a match, replies right away. My DD feels appreciated and acknowledged for her hard work. Her interest in attending Tulane jumped way up on her devision list.
Her interest in attending Tulane jumped way up on her devision (sic) list.
Which is exactly why Tulane makes their decisions this way. It separates them from their peer group and between the early notification and (to many students and parents) the surprise of a substantial merit scholarship, Tulane often goes from a maybe to a very possible, and after a visit to the school a yes.
My DD's status is finally showing as complete! I almost didn't check it today because I checked late last nightvand didn't think there would be activity over the weekend. What a relief! We are one step closer to finding out.
Yes, anybody else have Erica? Supporting materials submitted oct 10. Part 2 of application submitted nov 6. Application complete nov 8. Hopefully I will hear soon. Sounds like once everyone else's application was complete it took about a week?
I wouldn't put too much stock into that 2 day window. Her application may have been complete for some time but because of the problems you have all seen on Gibson, maybe they didn't see it showing as complete until much later. 2 days isn't impossible if there had already been a lot of communication and so the decision had essentially been made, but more likely it was really a longer time frame.
