    Congratulations. You mentioned engineering, so I'm assuming you applied to CIT, correct?
  • chocolateluvr88chocolateluvr88 Registered User Posts: 827 Member
    Correct! Will you be going to CMU next year?

    First, congratulations ^^

    Does "where Am I in the process" also show your acceptance status?
    or did you get the decision only by mail?

    I am so nervous now, since I have applied for ED II but I see nothing on the website, the page doesn't even say "pulled out blah blah"

    Will the school tell me if I call them on tuesday or do i just have to wait?

    @chocolateluvr88: Yes, if I'm accepted. I too applied ED II, and am frantically anticipating a reply. :)

    @thesunmin: Yes, I believe it does. My friend was accepted recently, and he initially find out via "Where Am I in the Process."

    I think you people should include the schools for example: "ACCEPTED TO CIT" at the top

    I never got an Admissions ID number, so I can't check online. I called them on Fri and they informed me that some of the decisions had already been mailed; I gave my name and they told me it was mailed on the 12th (Thursday). They said that I can check online 3 days after it was mailed, but they weren't sure if it was business days or any days, so it could be Sunday or Wednesday or so depending. So, if you check online today, it's possible it will be up.
