Early Action applicant
Good luck to you all!

I applied early action anyone got in early decision ? Please share your stats

My daughter applied EA. We haven’t heard anything.

Nothing here, but people last year appeared to not hear EA until mid-January or even early Feb.

My daughter just received a tiny envelope today (smaller than a letter. More like a card)…She’s not home to open it.

Nothing here yet

I got into Dickinson ED. While my stats might have been lower than some. (Test optional, didn’t get good scores on the AP exams) I think what really did it for me was reaching out to my regional counselor repeatedly asking her ?’s and meeting her at a local coffee shop.

It s okay to ask legit questions if they aren’t answered on the website. But pestering a regional rep a lot isn’t usually a good idea. The reps wouldn’t be happy if every applicant did this.

One thing that they mentioned on the two tours and two info sessions that I went to was that you should reach out to your rep if anything to just introduce yourself. And no I doubt they’d be overjoyed if every applicant did this, but not every applicant does.

Right… until they read on the internet that someone did it, and got in. Introducing yourself probably does not hurt, but asking many questions will turn some reps off, especially if they are about info available on the school website. In any case, congratulation on your acceptance.

My D applied EA and we have nothing yet. Fingers crossed! We’re going to visit on the 21st, our first time to this campus. Really looking forward to it!

Same here, have not heard

Good luck everyone! I applied EA as well. I’m anticipating around a Feb 1st release?

We were on campus today for a visit and heard several people say that EA decisions will be out very soon, possibly by the end of this week or by the 31st, anyway.

That’s exciting. Hope so! We were figuring the week of February 4…Good luck all!

Hope we hear back soon! Good luck everyone! :slight_smile:

Is anyone here attending the Music Audition Day tomorrow?
