<p>Hey I have a question, I plan to apply after tmrw and over the thanks giving break, I was wondering am I late? Are a lot of the spots already filled? I think I would have a decent chance with around an 1800-2000 sat score and 3.78UW, but 4.0+ W, what do you guys think? Also do you think they look at the essay? Does it play a large factor in the acceptance?</p>

<p>how long did it take for you guys to recieve your decisions? i applied a while ago and still haven't heard anything
also, does everyone get their decisions by phone or do u get a mail as well?</p>

<p>To answer above questions I applied on 12-4-11 and I heard back on 12-18-11. They will call you to congratulate you on being accepted and they said that they mailed a packet with the acceptance etc</p>

<p>I applied on 12/05 and got heard back on 12/22. They send me a packet w/ the acceptance letter and other things.
Got accepted w/ 12,000 merit scholarship. I wonder if they also have need-based aid because I really want to go there!!</p>
