Did everyone receive 2 new emails from Pepperdine Admissions on Friday?

<p>Hi everyone-I feel like a little community after having read everyone's posts for the past several months about Pepperdine. Both D and S have a applied and were excited last night when they received what I call "teaser" emails from Admissions-something to the effect "Are you ready to experience all that Pepperdine has to offer? </p>

<p>What type of emails did prospective senior students receive this week? Good luck to everyone here!</p>

<p>I got those--didn't think it meant anything really.</p>

<p>I received them also!</p>

<p>Ditto for my s. I imagine that they were sent to all applicants.</p>

<p>Yeah, I think everyone got them. It's a little misleading; after all, the majority of people who apply to Pep. will be rejected, yet they ask all applicants two weeks before decisions are emailed if they are ready to experience the school? I'm sure a lot of people are thinking "Yes!" to answer that question, and I'm sure even more people think the emails mean they have a greater shot at getting in, but come April 1st, I think a lot of people will be disappointed...</p>

<p>Just a little rant for the tease that is Pepperdine.</p>

<p>:[ why would they do that</p>

<p>I didn't get them. On Friday I received the e-mail about my application being complete and that I would be notified April 1st (a little late). Most people got that e-mail earlier but I am a transfer student so maybe they do it differently. Can you sum up what both e-mails said?</p>

<p>I think the teaser is a sales tool. As students apply to so many schools, even though they have applied to Pepperdine doesn't mean they are "sold". So they continue to promote.</p>

<p>yes, 2 e-mails.</p>

<p>Thanks JC. That makes sense. Maybe in another week or so I'll get the 2 e-mails everyone else got Friday. :)</p>

<p>Guess I just received the "sucker" award. I actually told our twins that I thought those 2 emails were a positive sign. In hindsight, I should have remembered that Pepperdine is highly selective and as another poster said, most kids will get rejected.</p>

<p>Pepperdine is a great school, so anyone who is admitted will have a terrific option.</p>

<p>Hang in there Georgia, it is always good to think positive!</p>

<p>At first, I thought those were Pepperdine's version of "likely-letters." But I think they intended for them to bring everyone back to why their school is superior.</p>
