    Don't freak out yet...when my son applied - and he applied to more than a dozen schools - Grinnell was among the last he heard from. He's a sophomore now and loving it.

    glad he's loving it, im not freaking out--i already got my acceptance, they just said they would send a huge packet of information later, was wondering if anyone had gotten it

    Oh sorry...congrats! I'm just guessing...but maybe they'll send it to you the same time they send it to everyone else, which I imagine would be around April 1st. Good luck with your decision.

    I'm not sure which big packet youre referring to. One came with my admissions letter that had all of the financial aid material and the housing and work study forms. If you didn't receive that, I'd call the financial aid office. I called them to ask a few questions about forms this week and it helped clear up a lot of stuff since some of the things they say you might be sent aren't actually needed for a lot of students. I know there will be at least two more packets later. One with the invite to the accepted students weekend(should be sent sometime this month) and one with tutorial info(not sent for a while) and such but I'm not sure of any other big packets. Hope this helped. Congratulations by the way...are you going to one of the accepted students days?
