"An Update on Your UW App" Email?

<p>I received an e-mail today from UW, which I don't think anyone here has received... it says:</p>


<p>Dear [Name],</p>

<p>Thank you for applying to the University of Washington - Seattle. We received a record number of international freshman applications this year and wanted to let you know that we are still reviewing and processing many applications. Over the next two to three weeks, we will complete our review of all applications and will notify you in writing of the admission decision. In the meantime, we thank you for your patience and for your interest in the University of Washington.</p>

<p>You will hear again from us very soon.</p>

<p>Does this mean that I am rejected, somehow? Because it seems like everyone was able to see if they are accepted online... while it only states that they will "notify [me] in writing of the admission decision". My test scores haven't been entered either... and it's almost been a month since my transcript was entered.</p>

<p>I think they will "notify me in writing" that I am rejected haha. What do you think?</p>

<p>I don't think so. It seems like they sent that out to a bunch of students that they haven't decided on yet. My admissions status used to say, We have reviewed your application. We will notify you by mail when a decision is made. A little less than a week later, I got my welcome packet.</p>

<p>what does your app. status say?</p>

<p>"Your application is awaiting an initial review."</p>
