    danielcarp17, to tell the truth,
    i envy you,
    so much, so much
    i've spent all the two months before the 1st JAN deadline to write the supplement of Amherst, and submitted it to alll the other schools that required supplement essays,
    i pray everyday to get in,
    but i got nothing so far...

    WOO! I know how you feel, danielcarp17. I just got an email saying I've been accepted !! =)
    So it's true; you DO feel great after getting the big "yes". (My first!)
    But anyway, I'll repeat what someone told me when I got deferred from Yale after applying early: you will get this feeling too, sooner or later!

    Aww... Congrats to you both! That's so awesome! I was kinda hoping for one, but not expecting it (so it's ok I didn't get one). izzywizzy, are you an international applicant?

    Danielcarp and izzywizzy, congrats! :)

    aznfishy, I think US people will get a physical letter? So I'm guessing they mailed 'em today, so people will start getting them tomorrow.

    Yes, I'm international. And I think what Kristina's saying probably holds true for US applicants.

    ^ Haha, same here. We shouldn't even bother until Friday.

    So financial aid info is given out right after the EW is received? Interesting. I got a likely letter from another college awhile ago, but zero mention of financial aid.

    My son got an early acceptance letter (not email) yesterday. Had been sent on Monday. Not international. It said something to the effect that you are being notified earlier than the regular date to give you ample opportunity to look into what Amherst has to offer.

    Visiting days for accepted students are April 13-14 (to stay overnight) and April 21 for a day visit.

    On a separate note- the most recent Amherst common data set indicates that last year they offered more people places on the wait list than they accepted, but accepted no one off the waiting list. Very curious.

    Danielcarp and Izzywizzy, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Your application must be really impressive.:)
    I, on the other hand, am steeling myself for another wait year. I'm pretty sure I won't get in anywhere this time round.:(

    Congrats again danielcarp and izzywizzy! What do you think made you stand out so amazingly in the applicant pool?

    skunk, I'm starting to feel the same way.... I mean i have two acceptances from non-US schools but neither of them really grab me and I'm starting to wonder if any of the schools I want to go to will accept me. Somehow I always thought that I would be able to go to Brown, Amherst, Williams or Dartmouth but right now I'm starting to realize that those dreams might be realized :( I was so optimistic just a few weeks ago! Maybe if I don't get into one of those four i'll just take a gap year and reapply in the fall. But on the other hand i'm so excited about going to college!

    I was wondering that, too. About gap years, this is mine and I have a lot of advice to impart to anyone interested.

    Yes, but it's until the 26th.

    And congratulations to all of you accepted!
    Where are you from izzywizzy?

    To those accepted-Has anyone received the financial aid notification? If not, do you know when it will be sent?
