Vassar decisions

When are rds coming out? Is it only by snail mail? Also- is it apparent if you get in by envelope type? If someone responds it'd be great, thank you! :-)

    Last year: late March/early April, only snail mail for US residents (possibly email for internationals, but I'm not sure), and yes -- big envelope! And my friends who got rejected got their letters before me (and my other friend who got in)... which was nervewracking, not to mention awkward.

    Thank you so much for your response! Do you like Vassar??
  • anh1vodoianh1vodoi Posts: 14Registered User New Member
    Does Vassar accept many ED deferrals? Cuz I'm one, and Colgate turned me down, so I'm thinking maybe Vassar was just stringing me along till March.

    Oh, btw, I'm Vietnamese, got 2190 SAT first time, good ECs, but with very ordinary GPA and my friends say my Personal Statement is too abstract, not clearly personality-revealing and therefore risky. (Sorry to turn this into what looks like a chance thread :-s) . I'm thinking of sending an organized resume as additional material (little changes, two more activities, but still). Should I?

    You want to send that in now? for a march decision, given that it is already March I think it's a little late.

    That said, you may just want to send it or you'll always wonder whether it would have made difference IF, if you don't get in. Also, why don't you call the admissions office and get their take on it?

    collegegrl33, yes, I do like Vassar. It's taken some getting used to for me, and I had a pretty messy first semester, but I don't want to be anywhere else. It's a unique place and it's not for everyone but it's vibrant, to say the least.

    I don't know about ED deferrals - I have one friend who got in as one, but he's also, like, the ultimate legacy. It seems like everyone else was either RD (like me) or first-time ED... but I haven't talked about admissions with a ton of people. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Congrats BigBrett44!!! How come you just heard your ed decision now (I am guessing by ed you meant early decision)? Did you get your acceptance today?
