My daughter applied on 8/6 to CDES. She’s anxiously waiting for a decision. Wondering if anyone else has already applied and maybe heard back?

My daughter accepted to Carlson today for Fall 22…wasn’t expecting to hear anything this early!!


Congrats to her. That’s so exciting! Did she check her portal or did she receive an email?

thx @IDtoTX …she rec’d an email that there was an important update to the U of M application tracker.

My son was accepted to Engineering today. Was not expecting to hear anything this early!

S22 accepted to CSE today. Looks like they update on Mondays.


My D22 was accepted today to CDES…What a nice surprise!


Did you use common app? S22 applied with test scores, but looking at the submitted app (PDF document), it looks like the test score section is omitted. I understand UMN is test not required (but couldn’t tell if test-optional or test-blind). Not sure if the missing test score is by design or some mistake, in which case we should perhaps send them an official score?

No, S22 used the Golden Gopher app and self-reported test scores.

The common app will blank out some information even though it is sent depending on the school. If I remember right, UMN was one of those schools.

ah okay, thanks for the information.

Love the rolling admission, D22 got accepted this week already - CEHD. Super excited.


Definitely takes some of the stress out of senior year to already know. Looks like we will have two at the U next year.

My DD heard today that she was invited to Honors. She hasn’t heard anything about Merit. Does anyone know how it works at UMTC?

Merit comes separately and I believe through the mail. My kid was accepted and offered honors really early last year but did not hear about merit until March.

congratulations, how long did it take from the time you applied to the decision? All the best!

My daughter applied week of Oct 5 and heard the following Monday for CEHD. Have not heard about honors yet.


My daughter applied on 8/6, heard 9/28 about acceptance and got the invite for Honors yesterday on Oct. 16.
