no email?

<p>so does no email mean no acceptance? or are they just sending acceptances in waves? this is kinda freaking me out because after i didn’t get into my first choice i was really hoping for AU and maybe some money (i think im a pretty good match??). do i still have a chance?</p>

<p>A friend told me that it's only for people who didn't get merit/didn't apply for FA, but I don't know the veracity of either of those claims.</p>

<p>I agree, they must be coming out in waves. The stats of people who received this email today have much higher than average stats.</p>

<p>yeah it sure seems that way. the people in the RD thread all seem to have 700+ SAT's and solid GPA's.</p>

<p>that is what i am hoping for. and on there facebook page they said that they send them out in waves - so I'm hoping for the best.</p>

<p>davidsjudo, I'd like to believe that but most people posting on CC have 700+ SAT's and solid GPAs..</p>

<p>Yeah, what nafter said.</p>

<p>My d did not have 700+ SATs and was accepted today.</p>

<p>If you go on the CC "search the stats" page for AU, you will see that most applicants just haven't heard yet. It means absolutely nothing if you haven't heard yet. Don't panic.</p>

<p>I'm fairly confident that there are more acceptances coming and that they're coming in waves. Many other schools are doing it that way (as annoying as that is!) and honestly, I've gotten accepted to far more selective schools than American already and haven't gotten an email yet</p>

<p>i do have all 700+ SAT's and didn't get any emails or notifications yet - so don't fret! I am also in no way saying I will get in. I am still waiting.</p>

<p>@bosox I highly doubt it's for people not getting any merit aid. Look at the stats of the people getting in. I made National Merit Finalist and I got the e-mail today. And I did apply for financial aid.</p>

<p>I was accepted today and did apply for financial aid. So the FA theory is out.</p>

<p>I searched the posts from 2009 and it looked like almost all of the email acceptances went out that first day around 6pm last year. Most that did not get it right away later posted that they were WL'ed or Rejected. Concerns me greatly.....</p>

<p>I called them and they said that they would be coming out randomly over the course of a week to a week and a half.</p>

<p>check in your spam box, that where my acceptance was</p>

<p>I haven't gotten anything yet either.</p>

<p>I'm pretty much not going to American because I don't qualify for need-based FA but I don't really have 50k a year to spare either. Regardless, my ego would hurt a lot if I got rejected from American too.</p>

<p>i got my acceptance today but never got an email so its ok!</p>

<p>My S got an email last year and received merit aid.</p>

<p>I have one daughter who got one by email and one who didn't and they are almost identical in stats, actually the one who didn't, has a stronger package. Time will tell, but with twins, it was the first time that happened. I expected either way, the letters would be together.</p>
