    No! Well, the time difference is the problem. It is 11.07 p.m right now and I can't call US from my home. We haven't taken that service. I have to call in the daylight, and when we have a daylight, admission officers will probably be sound asleep in their homes. I did write to admission officer of my region but no reply yet!

    eehlauna-- last year "sidthekid" from Nepal posted the following in the CC thead and on an international thread:
    Congrats teamie! that's gr8 news.

    I got my decision by fed ex. I got it on the 16th, abt 5 days after it was posted, so u will probably find something in your mailbox in a couple of days. All the best!

    Hey, I got in ED to Colorado College and the aid was good.
    http://www.coloradocollege.edu/dean/...S2009_2010.xls Check this out. The average aid for internationals is $44,000 and the tuition is only around $39,000.. I think thats fantastic aid. However, Im sure that it is really really competitive. Btw, wat do u mean by full FA, living+food+tuitions or only tuition fees? As for the others, I think they will provide similar aid. not sure though.

    thank you 07dad. I had searched his posts but didn't come across this. Thank yoU! So I will have to wait till friday if I am accepted. Or else, the rejections are probably sent through regular mail which will take even longer. :( 2 days more. I have no idea how I am going to be through with that.

    eehlauna--in a previous post I gave the telephone number for Fedex that I have been told can tell you if there is a fedex package on its way to a particular address. That number is "800-go-fedex." I have no idea if it is internal US tracking only, but if you call and they have something headed to your address ask for the weight. Acceptances are much larger than just a letter.

    OR--kick back and wait a few days. My CC grad works in Taiwan, so I have checked out International FedEx. IFE advertises that the delivery will get there within 2-3 business days. So, if it went into FedEx on Friday, you are looking at receiving it really soon.

    I called on 13th december. There was nothing at that time. So it probably is rejection!

    Still nothing today...I am feeling better about it though.. what will be, will be, my S is totally fine.. but would just like a notification of some kind to move on... if he hears nothing by tomorrow I am going to have him call... maybe something got mixed up and he is still in the EA pool... who knows.. It's weird that no one has posted a deferral or rejection yet, so hard to tell if they came out yet or not.

    5boys: My S had two of his acceptances delivered to the wrong address, so they took considerably longer to reach us. I called one school and explained the mail delivery problem and they gave me his acceptance over the phone and resent the letter.

    Maybe taking that approach would help. I've been hoping for your S that he would be admitted. The waiting and wondering are so stressful!

    I'm also waiting on a decision. I'm hoping it will come tomorrow! I'm thinking that my decision was sent on Monday, so it would make sense for it to come tomorrow (hopefully not later though, don't know if I can handle the anticipation)!

    I'm sending out positive thoughts

    Here's some fun math that I PM'd to 5boys that may provide some relief to the others waiting:

    Let's work on the premise that decisions were mailed last Friday and this Monday, as has been confirmed earlier in this thread.

    The majority of people who have already received decisions received them this Tuesday, with a few receiving them a day earlier or a day later. This gives us 3 days transit time with a margin of error (probably geography based) of +/- 1. It's likely that these decisions were mailed Friday.

    Working with the 3 day average transit time and a shipment date of Monday, we can extrapolate that this THURSDAY is the likely day for the second wave of acceptances to start rolling in. It is also conveniently the posted deadline, December 15th, which 07DAD has confirmed is historically typically met or preceded. Like he said earlier, someone has to be the second round.

    The fact that we haven't heard anything yet does not mean that we were rejected, it just means that our decisions were mailed Monday rather than Friday. (Also, the geographic trends are pretty encouraging. As far as I've seen, it looks like CA and MN haven't received anything yet. Maybe the regional admissions officers send out the decisions, which would account for the geographical discrepancies).

    TL;DR: I'm giving it until tomorrow before I start to worry. Hopefully this put your minds a little at ease as well :)

    Sending positive thoughts and hope to everyone still waiting on a decision! :D
