    If they follow the pattern of the previous years it will be Friday March 25th. But ACData is indeed down today (theysaid through Tuesday?), that *could* mean decisions earlier than Friday.

    Seems that the update is over - ACData is back up...

    @OHMomof2 @Scriant but would Amherst release decisions on Good Friday?

    @tel123 I don't really see why they wouldn't (I'm not Christian though, so I wouldn't know if Good Friday had certain connotations that would make it unacceptable).

    @Scriant lol me neither, but according to google it's a day of "fasting and penance". no idea whether they would or not, but my parents said that it would "seem a little inconsiderate" if they did.

    Good Friday is a pretty important deal to Catholics/Christians as it is the day recognized as Jesus' crucifixion but I don't really see a non-religious school not doing something because of it. If it was Georgetown or something then I could see them not doing it on Good Friday but I don't personally think that'll cause Amherst to change the day. But what do I know, haha.

    Here's to hoping that any deviation due to Good Friday results in an earlier release.

    Has anyone tried calling the admissions office? Maybe if people try starting tomorrow we'll get a date

    I know someone that called the admissions office on Friday afternoon and they said they still weren't sure about the release date.

    Why is Amherst so slow? They don't get that many applications relative to other top unis, right?

    Yeah, its about 9000 applicants. I guess they have thorough selection process.

    They're still winnowing the 9000 down to around 1000 (if those are the numbers this year), they're only shooting for a class of about 475. I think you can assume a small college won't have as large an admissions office as larger universities, either.

    That said, they always say "week of April 1" and always send decisions a bit earlier. This might be the year they go late but history suggests that's unlikely.
