Confirmation E-mail

I never received a confirmation e-mail after I sent in my application. I sent the application in online, before the regular decision deadline, and it appears that William and Mary downloaded the application shortly after I submitted it. Has anyone received such an e-mail, or am I in the same boat as everyone else? Thanks

    William and Mary did not respond to my daughter that they had received her application. It was the only school out of ten that didn't.

    they don't reply for some reason. i applied early and they didn't send me a confirmation email either. But i got accepted so dont worry too much about it.

    but how can you know that they received your in state residency app? i'm really worried about this.

    You can call the admissions office and ask them if your student's application packet is complete. We did that and they couldn't have been nicer

    D also applied to ten schools. W&M has yet to send her any confirmation data. Most other schools have filled email/snail mail with transaction details.

    I was snail mailed that I do not qualify for in-state.

    I got an email,

    Yeah I got that e-mail a few months ago but I have gotten no other e-mails or anything via snail mail since November.
  • 1938219382 Registered User Posts: 1,795 Senior Member
    I didn't get that email, and I've since emailed W&M twice (a week in between). No response yet, and it's been over a week. =/

    Maybe you should try calling? They might be pretty swamped right now.

    I got that e-mail as well.
