    Why can’t it be on a Saturday. One of my kids worked in undergrad admissions at her college, and they most definitely were open on Saturdays, at least until 1.

    At this time of the year, it’s very possible that those making the calls will be working.

    Just wait and see.

    I believe it depends on the school.

    It depends on the school. What college are you talking about?

    How common is it to call people? Is it quite a small college?

    Our D's college notified ED applicants officially by letters sent via large Priority Mail envelopes containing an admissions package to U.S. residents. Before our D received her ED admission letter in the mail, she had logged into her online applicant account with the college and noted that an option to pay a new student deposit was active, which was a significant clue that she had been accepted.

    FWIW, her college's admissions office Twitter account has tweeted photos of the priority mail envelopes containing the ED admissions letters being turned over at the Admissions Office to the postman for delivery over the past few years.

    i know it is hard now, but it will happen when it happens. I think they prefer not giving results during school hours so students aren't distracted.

    I suspect that they like to give answers at the end of a work day or on weekends so that disappointed applicants (or their parents) have the chance to stew over things and calm down before calling the admissions offices and demanding reconsideration.
