Need someone to assauge my worries

<p>This might sound like a ridiculous concern, but after receiving a likely letter to Dartmouth (my top choice) I'm fearful of anything that could potentially jeopardize my future in the Class of 2016. I received an email from Dartmouth last week inviting me to join the Class of '16 Facebook group, and after several days of no response from the group after sending a request to join, I sent an email to the address mentioned in the Facebook group description. I wrote,</p>

<p>*Hey, I was just wondering if I can join the 2016 FB group even though I've only received a likely letter and haven't been officially admitted? I'm definitely going to Dimensions and want to meet some other 16s beforehand!</p>

<p>-My name *</p>

<p>I quickly typed that email under the assumption that the email would be read by one of the Dartmouth students that manage the Facebook group, but then I began wondering - what if it's an admissions officer who reads my email and feels that I was too forthright or casual addressing them with a "Hey", or too presumptuous by acting as though I have already been admitted to the university? Do you think there could be any negative consequences to this kind of email?</p>

<p>Long story short: is this a big deal?</p>

<p>If Dartmouth rescinded admissions for every incoming freshman who does something kind of dumb on the internet, the incoming class would consist of three kids who don't have a facebook. I'm pretty sure admissions interns mod the facebook group, anyway. We have midterms. Give them a few days.</p>

<p>You're in. It's called a "likely" because all the Ivies "officially" notify on the same day. Congrats. Enjoy it. Don't fail your classes.</p>

<p>There was nothing wrong with your email. Just don't fail anything, become embroiled in a cheating scandal, or get arrested. :) Congratulations on your acceptance.</p>

<p>I wouldn't worry about the email. I don't know about the Dartmouth fb group, but the Stanford one's admins are pretty chill (and don't seem to have anything to do with admissions). Also, your email was fine! IMO it wouldn't affect your chances at all no matter who read it. It just shows your enthusiasm for the school.</p>

<p>I agree with the above poster. Don't drop your standards and congrats on the letter.</p>

<p>Haha, thanks. I guess I tend to overanalyze things (you don't want to know how many times I proofread my Common App before submitting it...)</p>

<p>^Haha I did the same thing. And then I found a typo when I was re-reading my common app essay after I was already admitted...</p>

<p>Don't worry about the small things, sounds like you're pretty much already in.</p>

<p>"I guess I tend to overanalyze things "</p>

<p>You've guessed correctly. Relax. Congrats. Enjoy your last HS semester!</p>

<p>My son was admitted ED last year and, like you, he tried to join FB group. I seem to remember it took several weeks before he was admitted to the Class of '15 group. Not to worry xmyles.<br>
Also, don't be too alarmed when you receive close to zero info from Dartmouth over the next few months. I think they finally start sending some info in June.</p>
