    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.

    Does it matter that I received that email at a later time? I didn't get it until 3:13

    Omg this is getting so real, I'm so stressed! I am an international applicant. Anyone else international? Where from? :) I'm from Italy ;)
  • an1620an1620 Registered User Posts: 175 Junior Member
    @ntnationa me, from Romania! Getting more stressed every day haha
  • ntnationantnationa Registered User Posts: 59 Junior Member
    @an1620 I feel ya so much!!! :) Is Amherst your first choice?
  • an1620an1620 Registered User Posts: 175 Junior Member
    @ntnationa it's hard to say, Yale was my first choice and after getting rejected I kind of tried not to get my hopes up with any school, so I don't really have a first choice. But I am really hoping it's a yes from Amherst, since it's the only school need blind to internationals. What about you?
  • ntnationantnationa Registered User Posts: 59 Junior Member
    @an1620 I'm pretty much the same. I know that Amherst and the Ivies I applied to (I only applied RD) are seriously competitive. So I just have the mentality that first I see where (more like if) I get in and then see if I do have a choice ;) I also applied to Amherst because it's need blind! And it's such a nice school also, I like the college feel.

    International applicants, what are your SATs?
  • an1620an1620 Registered User Posts: 175 Junior Member
    @inshm2016 Mine are on the low(ish) end: 2040 SAT I, 720 Literature and 590 Bio M (this was mostly because I self studied everything like one month prior to the exam)
  • ntnationantnationa Registered User Posts: 59 Junior Member
    @inshm2016 Mine are also pretty low. I was in the same situation as @an1620 I self-studied everything. SAT I: 2070, SAT II: French 800, Biology M 740
    What are yours?
  • inshm2016inshm2016 Registered User Posts: 224 Junior Member
    @an1620 @ntnationa Mine are 2280 SAT I, 800 Math II and 800 Chem SAT II. Best of luck to all of us!
