Hi! So considering it's almost a month away until we find out, I figured I'd create this thread for updates, questions, acceptances, rejections, etc. Good luck to all!!

    Summre, yes I received confirmation about a few days after I submitted my Common App. I also received a tracking number so I could track my app on the Barnard website. :)

    You are so lucky! I submitted mine on the 8th and havent heard back from Barnard yet. On the website it says the tracking email takes 2 or 3 weeks if I submit near or on the 8th. Sigh, hopefully I will get mine asap!

    I submitted mine Oct. 31st and got confirmation a week or so later! A lot of my stuff (SAT and teacher recs.) don't appear to have gone through though and that worries me a little bit. Is that the case for a lot of people?

    Summre, it's probably taking a little longer because you submitted your app on the deadline. No worries!

    Triforceofsara, all of my stuff has gone through...maybe you should talk to your guidance counselor just in case? I submitted mine October 27th and my recommendations and essays went through on November 1st. My SATs went through on November 8th, so they took a little longer if that's helpful.

    Good luck!

    I also submitted mine on the 8th but I received a confirmation email about a week ago.

    Regarding the application tracker, it says all of my materials have been submitted except for a mid year report and a final transcript. What is a midyear report?

    HeyTTI, that's your mid year grades — and final transcript is obviously end of year grades. No matter when you are admitted (EDI or II or RD) colleges will follow your academic progress through the school year and up to the end :). Mid year grades become very important if your early decision is deferred...

    A quick question...

    I just got an email from Barnard asking for my first quarter grades. The email stated that Barnard sent this to all ED applicants. I'm just wondering...how do we know when our first quarter grades go through? They don't have a "slot" on the App Tracker.

    @PurpleWriter6729
    I was wondering the same thing when I sent my first quarter grades. They updated my transcript section with a new date when they received them. :)

    In response to the first quarter grades question. Those are part of your transcript and so do not have a special section on the Barnard track your app site. If you applied or had your transcript sent before your school had completed the first quarter grading, then Barnard would have only received 9th-11th grade grades. They also need the first quarter of senior year so I'm sure they just wanted an updated transcript.

    does anyone know the exact day we find out from barnard? I'd heard Dec 15, but that's a Sunday and I heard that Barnard sends decisions via regular mail. Can anyone confirm that?

    @mollyco, yup Barnard sends decision letters through regular mail. I heard that if you're accepted, it will come in priority mail. Judging from last year, I think we'll probably get our letters around December 13th or 14th.
