all Admissions would be released together,for the last two years it has been the 19th, so we should expect it around the 19th this year as well!


Does anyone know if Swat does likely letters or early admits?

Well, they announced decision day, and as expected it is next Friday. So, no matter what, it’s only a week away now.


Thank you! Just saw the email as well.

Wow. They send that to everyone? (a letter about exact date and time, with a note to withdraw if you are no longer interested.) Many other schools send no reminder to visit the portal if it’s a rejection and only send an email if its an acceptance.

Can’t honestly say. LOL This is what she received.

stress :slight_smile:

Yes, as far as I know they send that to everyone and it’s not unusual, I can think of at least 2 other schools off the top of my head that sent my D similar emails already telling date and time (one with results last week and one sent it nearly three weeks early, so that decision date is still almost two weeks away). But also, have had a couple where it’s just checking the portal and finding out before eventually getting an email a week or so later. They got this email a full week early, from what I saw on the 2021 thread, they only received the email about 2 days before decision day last year (which also corresponded to this Friday).

It’s curious that they want hundreds of rejected applicants to call them to withdraw applications before they release decisions. But thank you for the quick reply. :slight_smile:
