    I’m so nervous! It’s a bit of a reach for me, but I’m excited to see the decision.

    Hey same here! I think I might not get in anyway but I’m nervous and excited to see the result. I’m an international student who doesn’t have a chance to visit Smith, but I have the opportunity to have a chat with the AO there and Smith sounds like a great place! Really wish to get there, I guess for now everything boils down to luck. All the best!

    I’m super nervous as well! Does anyone know if there’s an exact date that the decisions will be released or is it just by December 15th?

    If I’m not wrong last year was on December 14 at 5pm PST. I think it should be around the same time this year.

    Does anyone know exactly HOW we get the decision? Like via a letter or an email or what? I applied ED and I have no idea when/how we get our response. Welp!

    Back when I applied (I was class of 2018), the acceptance showed up on the portal.

    Does Smith send out something telling applicants when the release date is?

    Last year the email came two days before decisions were released.

    I'm an ED I applicant waiting to hear from Smith... Today I logged into iDoc to obsessively check my financial aid documents and noticed that two Direct Loan-related requirements have appeared... Have these appeared for everyone else?

    My kid's IDOC still says "ALERT: All required documents have been submitted and are processed."

    Ah, but in the Smith FA portal, under Documents and Messages, there are two new direct loan related items.
    Message Text
    Complete this requirement at StudentLoans.gov. Click on document name to link to that website. Be prepared with your FSA ID to sign in.

    Declining Offered Direct Loan:
    Disregard this requirement. It should disappear after you decline the loan via the Loan Action option in the above menu. If it remains after declining the loan aid, then contact us at [email protected]

    Either Decision:
    If you have not already done so, you must accept or decline the loan via the Loan Action option in the Menu drop-down list. This option activates after your OFFICIAL aid award has been determined for which you will be sent email notification. (Entering Undergraduates: Note that the award that was provided to you before you enrolled was a TENTATIVE award that goes through a finalization process to consider any new information.)

    Entering Transfer/Grad Students:
    If you previously borrowed a Direct Loan, then you must access your counseling record via StudentLoans.gov and have it transmitted to Smith OR elect to do the counseling again to satisfy this requirement. (Grad Students: If you will be a 1st-time Grad PLUS Loan borrower, then you must do the Entrance Counseling again.)

    Session data will be transmitted to and processed by Smith about every 7-10 days.

    Questions? Contact our loan area at [email protected] Please include your full name and ID#.

    I think we can safely assume this is a generic change for all US applicants for financial aid.

    My FA page has the same message, complete loan counseling and MPN. It must be a standard thing.

    When you say portal do you mean Common Ap/Coalition/etc? Or is there something else we needed to log into/set up? If so how do I go about doing that?

    You should have gotten an email after submitting your application that said:
    Thank you for applying to Smith College! We are writing to confirm that we have received your application. To check the status of your application materials or update your contact information, you can access your Student Status Page with this username and temporary PIN:

    @elizabeth You should have received an email to log into the Smith Portal after your application was received. It shows the status of all your application docs.

    Oh no! I never received an email like that! I know I've applied because they've sent me other emails and the like, but I never received anything like what you have there!

    I did some research and apparently Villanova accidentally released the entrance counseling forms early in 2017 - it seems some got it and some didn’t, and there might be a correlation with acceptance? I’m trying not to be too hopeful, and I’m planning on calling the financial aid office tomorrow to ask about it!
