Does Bates have an account thing to sign in and see if you're missing anything? I haven't gotten anything yet from them...

    The snail mailed a letter to all applicants. It had a log in and password thing, You guys should call the admissions office and ask them about this!

    My son did received a snail mail form bates with ID and password after 2 weeks but he don't know why he can not use the url address in the mail? We try to call and mail them but it didn't work out.

    Can you guys do us a favour posting the url you use to access Bates account with the pin and password you received?

    Thanks a lot

    Is anyone here from Asia? I sent in my application in mid December and the adcom told me they received it, but yet I haven't gotten mail from them- I mean the one with ID and PIN. Do you think I should email them again or I should wait (I actually emailed them once or twice and they said I would be receiving a letter soon)? It's already Feb 22 :((

    I'm from Asia and I got their snail mail in Jan start.

    The URL is http://www.bates.edu/application ... it works fine from my computer! You could try opening the page with a different internet explorer "Firefox" "Netscape" "Windows Internet Explorer". Maybe that will make a difference. =/

    @ lennyd
    I am from Asia too, and I never got the letter either. But few days ago I emailed Bates about the letter and requested them to provide my id and password via e-mail. They e-mailed me back, confirming that my application with them is complete. So, I guess you can ask that too.
  • lennydlennyd Registered User Posts: 15 New Member
    @talha_adnan: Oh but I haven't received the ID and PIN, so I can't check my application yet :|
    @BB012: Thanks for your advice, I have just sent them another email. Hope my application is complete too.
    Best of luck to all of us ^

    Hi all,

    I hope you have received your log-in ID and password by now.

    According to an admission officer at Bates, international applicants can expect to receive their admission decision letter by April 10th. I think what they meant was the letter would arrive 2 weeks after the decision is out...
