    I recall someone saying last year that the acceptance envelopes were surprisingly small . .

    the wait for the decisions notification is killing me and yet, I'm sure I won't be able to open the email/letter when it arrives. AHH!

    I have often read what others have written on this site but never felt compelled to add anything myself. Just wanted to say I am in the same boat as the rest of you - ahh to be a part of a very nervous and hopeful little community - and I wish you all the best of luck (deep breaths guys (and girls) all will be all right - the wait is almost over).

    The EDII acceptance S received last Feb.was in an envelope about 10"x13", large enough to hold the folder of acceptance-related documents, but not terribly thick. It was pretty obvious it was an acceptance as there was no need for bad news to be in an envelope that size. Good luck to those of you waiting to hear!

    So, if they send out the mails on 10th, does that mean they will also e-mail the results for the international applicants on 10th as well?

    Ah...........I'm so nervous!

    I just want it all to be over...I'd almost rather hear back now and get rejected than have to wait another few days :P

    I hear the last two years they actually mailed the ED decisions on the second Thursday in Dec, which would be today. Anyone hear any gossip as to whether they are mailing today? I will go nuts if I don't get by Saturday but have to wait until next week!

    kwacker -- torasee often has good info, so maybe torasee will chime in today. I had the same info you do re notifications going out on Thu. in the past. For S, who was ED II for class of '14, the notifications were mailed a day before they were supposedly going out. They were mailed the first Thu. in Feb.

    the orient articles have said BY december tenth. so that could very easily mean today. terrifying.
  • cgv134cgv134 Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    So, if they were mailed out today, do you think that I'll see it in my mailbox tomorrow? I'm going away all weekend- if I have to sit helplessly a few states away knowing that that silly letter is waiting for me, I MIGHT go crazy.
  • royal73royal73 Registered User Posts: 275 Junior Member
    The Orient comes out on Fridays. Last year there was an article in the Fri. 12/11 issue that reported on the ED I decisions sent out on Thu. If nothing is posted on CC tonight by anyone who knows if decisions went out today, you could check tomorrow's Orient for an article. Also, if the mailing was today, some applicants will get word tomorrow.
