Dickinson RD Class of 2021

I can’t find a thread like this so I’m starting one! Dickinson is my #1 and I’m coming from Northern Virginia. Does anyone know when we should start checking the online application status? I know the posted date is March 20th but they always release them a little before then.

Also, does anyone know how many merit scholarships they give out?

I don’t know, but I’m also waiting to hear back. I’d assume around the 15th at the earliest.

Will the admissions decisions be emailed?

For ED acceptances they send you a notice that an update has been posted to your admissions profile page–the same one which tracked the submission of your application documents. You sign in to the portal and then click on the update to see the decision. Good luck!

Decisions are out!
