So, my DD21 applied to a school and was deferred back in December. Last week she got a financial aid award letter from said school. Does that mean she was accepted? We didn’t know so we called saying she got the financial aid letter but not an official acceptance letter from admissions. I had to leave a message. A counselor just called me back (a week later) saying “No” – in fact, she had not been admitted yet. They are still waiting for her 1st semester senior grades to make a decision! The financial aid letter had been sent out by mistake! Thank goodness this wasn’t her number 1 school. What if she had withdrawn her other applications and accepted?! Basically all she said was “oops, our mistake, sorry…UUGGHHHH”
Needless to say, this school which had been in her top 3 has now fallen out of favor…if not off the list entirely!
