Waitlist email

Did anyone else receive an email from the Dean of Admissions regarding the waitlist? There's a link in the email asking if you want to continue being on the waitlist, and it also mentions that the Dean will send you weekly emails.

Sorry if this sounds confusing...i'm doing this in school and i'm not supposed to be on forums so i typed this kind of fast

    yeah but those emails were sent quite a while ago :S, and oyu had to confirm whether you wanted to retain a position on the waitlist or not. They are already accepting people from the waitlist now, i got an email saying they have accepted from from the waitlist yesterday.

    ^ How far back is a while back? Because I only got this email 2 days ago...
    Thank you for your interest in remaining on the Emory wait list. Over the next few weeks, you will receive periodic emails from me with important updates and information, including the ability to change the latest date on which you would like to be considered for admission.

    I hope you will find my future emails both informative and useful. I'll be in touch shortly.

    I received 3 emails from Emory regarding the waitlist.

    First one asks me to submit a form saying I'd like a spot on the waitlist

    Second email (the one i mentioned in the first post) wants to know if i'm still interested in the waitlist and asks me to submit another form and tells me if i get accepted then i have 3 days to reply.

    Third email is the one that cpiers quoted.

    So i'm confused..

    is the email sent to all waitlist emory applicants? or the ones who will be accepted off the waitlist
  • hawhuy2009hawhuy2009 Registered User Posts: 23 New Member
    i think it should be all waitlist applicants. i haven't gotten accepted off, and i got those emails.
  • ImReachingForItImReachingForIt Registered User Posts: 369 Member
    beccacheetah - hopefully it's the latter

    Hey guys, i was waitlisted from both emory and oxford, and i chose to only stay on emory's waiting list. Our school asked us to submit decision letters, so went on opus and somehow i can only find oxford letter and not emory's. i mean before both were on, and now theres only one. does that mean that i have no chance to get in emory- i haven't received any phone calls

    Question to the group - yesterday, my son's Emory wait list letter was on the OPUS website; this morning it is not there only this:
    "Your admission decision is not available at this time. Please check your Admission To Do list for remaining application requirements. If all application materials have been received, check your school's website for decision release dates or for decision timeframes. Thank you for your interest in Emory University"
    He had previously accepted at Oxford but remained on the Emory wait list.

    Pelham - Sounds like they did a blanket purge to the waitlist gang but the wording is suspect. That's what the site said before the acceptance and waitlist letters went out. Maybe a phone call is in order. Keep us informed...
  • ImReachingForItImReachingForIt Registered User Posts: 369 Member
    I think if you're on the waitlist then they just keep sending you emails to keep you informed and stuff...
  • pelhampelham Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
    My son just got the call - he was accepted at Emory off the wait list
  • madirocksmadirocks Registered User Posts: 392 Member
    My Emory college decision letter is no longer on Opus...I only see Oxford...is this a good sign??
  • hawhuy2009hawhuy2009 Registered User Posts: 23 New Member
    when you are given a call to be told you are off the waitlist, is it possible for them to leave a message if you don't pick up? And if that is the case, are you supposed to confirm that you got that phone call? sorry, i'm just paranoid about the possibility of getting a call but accidently have told Emory the wrong number or something like that.
