    This is from last year....so, there may be some changes, but Yes, Groton was at 6 pm ET last year....and Andover was at 5...trust me, I remember the pain waiting for them to be released driving over 300 miles to Dallas for hockey, as well as the pain of the rest of the trip after we got the answers....

    I will modify if you notify me you've received other information directly from a school. Just let me know!!! @SkysTheLimit2007 I will try to change Thayer tonight....

  • KnightsDudeKnightsDude Registered User Posts: 48 Junior Member
    Got an email from Andover that said 9am...
    Is this referring to the email/letters or the decisions?
  • keystosuccesskeystosuccess Registered User Posts: 116 Junior Member
    Kimball Union had sent out an email that said that their decisions would be sent out via email at 6:00 p.m. on March 9th, instead of March 10th as it states on the list.

    Berkshire will announce decisions on M10 “early in the morning” in their admissions portal, per an earlier email.

    Wow, Groton is late. I would have thought most schools notified as early as possible
  • keystosuccesskeystosuccess Registered User Posts: 116 Junior Member
    @FunintheSun1211 at least it's not as bad as Thacher, their decisions are released at 4 p.m. PST, that's basically saying 7:00 p.m. EST for where I live, making it excruciatingly agonizing for those who have chosen to apply there.
  • buuzn03buuzn03 Registered User Posts: 1,218 Senior Member
    Ha! Do those blue clad men #1 wear blue anymore? And #2 actually go drop off mail at a house? I don’t know of any homes in our town that have their own mailbox...we have to go to the end of the street with a little key in hand. And god forbid you lose said miniature key!!!
  • narcissediaz98narcissediaz98 Registered User Posts: 67 Junior Member
    So has every PA applicant signed up to get those emailed early FedEX delivery notifications? Or does that just jinx your chances? :P
