    I thought Union heard back in the middle of February? Or at least that's what the email they sent me said.
  • 2ksmom2ksmom Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
    Did you mean Cooper Union or Union College? I'll change the date. Thanks.

    Don't know about dates for this year, but I know Boston University actually released decisions on March 25 or 26 (don't remember for sure which one but I know it was one of these two), not the 28th. Not a big difference, but I'd be game for not having to wait an extra two or three days! ;)
  • born2dance94born2dance94 Registered User Posts: 1,646 Senior Member
    Union College... but, oh, just kidding. Just read the email. It said I should apply because I would hear back February 1st, so since I had already applied, I assumed that's what it meant. I just went to their website and February 1st is only for ED 2 applicants (even though I applied regular, so that's a weird email to send but oh well), so disregard that.

    I was deferred from Harvard, and their email said the notification date was March 28. It could have changed though, or that could just be for deferred applicants.

    More schools than I thought use normal mail. I thought more were online.
  • born2dance94born2dance94 Registered User Posts: 1,646 Senior Member
    @waitingforivy I wish more were normal mail. My friends and I had planned to have a huge bonfire at the end of the year and toss our rejection letters in and then roast marshmallows over it, but most have been by email this year, so it sucks. :(
  • moonman676moonman676 Registered User Posts: 938 Member
    Why can't they be earlier? :(
  • waitingforivywaitingforivy Registered User Posts: 878 Member
    @born2dance94 - they usually send real letters as well, so I'm planning on doing that anyways!

    @moonman676 - Yes I wish! I've kinda resigned myself to the fact that I'm not going to know anything for months and to try and enjoy myself during senior year.
  • moonman676moonman676 Registered User Posts: 938 Member
    @waitingforivy: Luckily, I find out about one of my safeties February 15th :)
  • born2dance94born2dance94 Registered User Posts: 1,646 Senior Member
    @waitingforivy the ED school that was my top choice but was rejected from didn't send a hard copy of the rejection letter. That was honestly the one I wanted most. It was going to go first into the fire. :(
  • alisynalisyn Registered User Posts: 548 Member
    even if they only send emails, I'm gonna print them out and watch them burn. I just hope I won't be crying cause I only got rejection letters hahaha. Man that would suck
  • testobsessedtestobsessed Registered User Posts: 229 Junior Member
    This list seems like a good idea, but the OP mentioned that the dates are copied & pasted from an old thread, so they are probably not valid. Anyone want to update any schools with with this year's info?
  • UM32194UM32194 Registered User Posts: 263 Junior Member
    Awesome list! Grinnell's website says RD decisions are mailed in "late March"
  • testobsessedtestobsessed Registered User Posts: 229 Junior Member
    Thanks UM32194. Snail-mailed or emailed, do you know? Anyone else have updated info on other schools?
