When do decisions get released?

@chipperd That is so impressive. My stats seem like nothing. I have no chance I suppose.

I think decisions get released on December 15

Not sure what your’s are, but you can check vs last years class on this website: https://www.collegedata.com/cs/data/college/college_pg02_tmpl.jhtml?schoolId=453
Lots of great info. Best of luck!

@chipperd Hey I took the SAT subject tests AFTER november 1st and I did mention on my commonapp that I was going to take them in november and december. Can I also submit those? Or do they not count since they were taken after the ED deadline?

IDK. Maybe contact admissions?

They aren’t that impressive (in the lower 700s) So I figured I shouldn’t hurt my chances especially since the decisions are next week

@chipperd BTW Did the admissions ask you to send first semester/trimester report?

Nope.Although they may have just contacted the school, but assuming school would notify.

My daughter got an email saying ED decisions released tomorrow, 12/13, in the evening, but no specific time listed. Any idea on that time?

They’ll send an email if there is a change in status of the application

My daughter found out about 7pm she is in!

@chipperd - that great! please share her stats.

My bad - you did earlier in the thread

I am planning on applying ED 2… can those accepted share their stats?

@Lillla I was recently accepted for ED1. My stats were as following:
3.45 weighted GPA from a VERY competitive private high school and an upward trend.
34 ACT (35E, 33M, 35R, 32S)
Good EC’s centered around my academic interests (Brandeis definitely takes notice in these sorts of things).
varsity sports + band

I also visited the campus and did an interview.
