    Since you have read the prior threads, you have the benefit of the reports of what actually has happened in prior years. My recall was that at least as to acceptances, CC sent them out by (and mostly before) the "advertised" date.

    Awesome! Hopefully I'll know far before the 22nd then! Thanks a lot!

    This is so exciting!

    @07dad
    you are right on the reason to press conversion of ea to ed. the class with the dorm issues was my son's freshman class in 08. the yeild was much higher than they though it would be out of ea and rd. it took them all year to get the freshmen two to a room (in many cases 3 or sometimes 4 were jammed into a double). it was apparently NOT a happy experience. son was lucky, got that room deposit in IMMEDIATELY so he was not put in that situation. it was those who were not quite as quick on the old room desposit that got penalized. STILL, i don't think even ONE of those students would say it was not worth it, and i don't think cc lost a single freshman because they all wanted to be there -- 3 to a room or not!!

    Well my S is happy right now that he converted.. I'm just biting my nails and WAITING!! It is SO hard because of it is the holidays and my S has finals all next week... if the news is not good from CC, it might be a REALLY tough week for him. My S also requested Winter Start... I have mixed feelings about that, but he wants to hike the PCT, and takes 5 months.. so even if he leaves right after his school gets out he won't be done till October. Does anyone know anyone who has started in Winter?

    For what it's worth, two years ago my son was accepted EA and the packet arrived on December 24. Don't remember if it was fed ex or regular mail, though..... IIRC, there were posts on CC of ED students getting notices about a week before that. BTW, son didn't get any email asking him to switch to ED, and was accepted with nice merit aid. Still, getting such an email can only be good news. I mean, it would be pretty lame to reject someone after begging them to switch to ED!

    does anyone know 100% if the EA/ED status change emails were sent to all EA applicants?
  • bgskiingbgskiing Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
    I received an e-mail but I'm pretty sure every EA applicant received one. I know several others that also got an e-mail. not 100% though
  • 5boys5boys Registered User Posts: 1,775 Senior Member
    There a few people that I know who did not get one.. so I guess not everyone gets one.. but I'm sure a lot do. If you look at last years thread on the subject, not everyone got one either. I do think it is a way to control their yield. My S wanted to do ED at the start, but he didn't because I talked him out if it because of FA. I decided to let him go ahead with the ED, as I did the online calculator and if it is anywhere close, we will be fine. It is definitely his #1 choice.

    Only around a week left for ED results!! Ahh I'm so nervous! 5boys, I am jealous that your son is hiking the PCT! It is definitely on my bucket list haha.
  • 5boys5boys Registered User Posts: 1,775 Senior Member
    Outdoors... I think we will hear something by Monday or Tuesday.. on last years thread the ED results were there on Monday the 13th.. this year Monday is the 12th...So, I just have a feeling.. maybe someone should call and ask... I'm afraid to because I am only the mom.. I don't think my S even knows what day they are going to be released.. which I am happy about because it will be a surprise. Outdoors, if you and my S both end up at CC.. you guys HAVE to meet... LOL!! I'm already matchmaking... but seriously, you guys are too much alike... come to think of it, maybe it would be better to just be best friends..
  • outdoors12outdoors12 Registered User Posts: 52 Junior Member
    Ahh I really hope I get in! Hardly anyone at my school is outdoorsy. I cannot wait to be surrounded by people who love hiking and getting outside! It would be so nice to get to know your son! We would definitely get along.
  • 5boys5boys Registered User Posts: 1,775 Senior Member
    Okay.... someone on here needs to call the admissions office and ask them if ED decisions have been mailed... the suspense is killing me... I think they were mailed on Friday..
  • pennyalexpennyalex Registered User Posts: 9 New Member
    5boys-- Why do you think they may have mailed Friday.. based on previous years? New to the thread but have been following it for a while. D applied ED and I know I am more nervous than she is.. Perhaps in part because she thinks she won't hear till the 22nd.
    I have no idea what her chances are and she wants to go to CC so much!!
  • outdoors12outdoors12 Registered User Posts: 52 Junior Member
    I can't take this!!! I really want to call and inquire, but I don't want to come off as pushy. I think my mom is more nervous than me though. She keeps saying that she is sick to her stomach haha. I think its partly because my twin sister has been recently defered from her top choice and she doesn't want the same to happen to me. Hopefully we will all hear great news tomorrow!
  • 5boys5boys Registered User Posts: 1,775 Senior Member
    @pennyalex.. Yes, last year the ED decisions went out on Friday 10th and people started getting their acceptances on Monday the 13th. I was just wondering if it was the same this year.. this year no one has called to see when they were mailed out. I just don't want to call because I am the mom... and I am like your mom and outdoors mom... NERVOUS... I just have a feeling we are going to hear something tomorrow....
