Does Princeton release decisions online? If so, do they do it earlier than the mail notification? I know it takes away from the aura of having a big, fat envelope in the mailbox..but I was just wondering.

    oh it ruins all the suspense and fun of it if you get them online early. better to tear apart an envelope.... however getting them sooner would be nice...

    I don't really care for the fun of snail mail. I want my decision on Dec. 10 like the rest of the Ivy applicants. The next week is finals week, and I'd rather not receive bad news during that period.

    Depends on where you live. East coasters received the news either that Saturday or Monday after the Fridays decisions were mailed out. Those on the west coast had to wait until Monday or Tuesday to receive their letters.

    Yeah pretty cool :) I made the mon/tues prediction based on if they mail on Friday. Not sure though. And fedex only if it's an acceptance. Which would make waiting pretty sad after tuesday.

    It takes 6 days by air mail. Fedex could be min 4 days.. I don't think it'd be less than that. First Flight said they take 5 days.

    And I forgot to add, somewhere I read (maybe the viewbook) that decisions are mailed by the 15th. It might reach, e.g. on the 20th or 25th :p

    I know MIT mailed acceptence letters to US nationals as late as 13th - 14th.

    lol just psyching you guys out.. i'm just as nervous. The viewbook says:
    We make every effort to notify Early Decision candidates of our decision by mid-December.

    :)
