Still no word

Has anyone else who applied EA still not heard back from Dayton? Still awaiting a decision. Seems odd to take so long

My S applied early November and finally got a letter in late January (a few weeks after he should have heard something, whether it was accept, defer or deny) asking for 7th semester grades.

Have you checked the portal? His portal has said since mid-November that the app was 100% complete. Then in January, around the time the letter arrived, they added a red x saying that 7th semester grades were missing. Still showed as 100% complete, though. Finally this week the portal showed that those grades were in, but no decision yet.

We understood the deferral (his GPA was on the weak side); but when you promise a reply by a certain date, not meeting that deadline damages a school’s credibility.
