so the gwu website says decisions last week of march....so does that imply the last full week (starting on the 21st) or last actual week (starting on the 28th)? also, will i find out first by
a) email
b) checking the website myself
c) letter in the mail

ask you can see, im sort of impatient and itching to get my decision

    I think the fastest way to do it would be to check yourself.They send out emails right away also, but due to the high volume, it might take some time to send all the emails out.

    However, when the traffic on the website increases, you wouldn't be able to login or even open the login page on the GWU website. So the fastest way would be to be one of the first ones to get on the website and check your decision =)

    The mail comes 2-3 days after the decisions have been posted.

    ^^ Just as a general statement, Delaware decisions were mailed on a Saturday, so people got them on the Monday, when the online decisions were posted. So that's not always true about the mail.

    However, just check everything! That's what I'm gonna be doing...all the time...for the next three weeks...every moment... >.<

    collegeboard says GW will begin notifying applicants of financial aid on march 24 so I imagine it will be either around or on that day, right?

    College board is usually outdated

    I got an email a couple days before acceptance notifications came out, and I got to check the status online. Then a week later, I got a package in the mail.

    Did you apply early action?
  • r0kAng3lr0kAng3l Registered User Posts: 1,682 Senior Member
    Me? Yeah I did.

    My bet is that it's Thursday, March 24. Last year RD was the 25th- a Thursday.

    You'll get an email telling you to check the site at 6PM, but start checking at 5. May sure you have all your log -in info ready. Be prepared for a long wait to log in- the site gets really flooded.

    I applied ED2, and the decisions were posted around 5:20 when it said they'd be available around 6, so you might want to check it a little early and refresh the page :P

    the wait is killing me. this is the last school I'm waiting to hear from, after this I'll know where I'm going. AHHH
  • ezbreezezbreez Registered User Posts: 236 Junior Member
    I hear back from GW and F&M on the same day, and then I make a decision. I'm dying >.<

    If it's next week, I'll actually be at GW (at the Washington Area Model United nations Conference) when decisions are released. This has the potential to be either one of the best or one of the most scarring moments of my life. Well, here's to GW!

    EZbreeze- I've had kids at both F and M and GW- they are very different places! How did you narrow it down to those 2?
