Wake Forest ED application decision

Hi. I submitted my supplements 8/28 and my college counselor submitted all my other documents 9/5 and then I had my interview 9/22 and my admissions counselor told me it would be 6-8 weeks from when my “required documents were submitted,” but does that include the interview? or is it from when my college counselor sent in my documents? Also has anyone applied around the same time as me and heard back yet?

Hi! I interviewed in May and I applied ED on July 15th. My counselor had all my documents in on Aug 7th and I was accepted on 9/11. It took about 4 1/2 weeks to hear back once everything was submitted. I know that the waiting period does not start until you have all green check marks (which would include the interview). Hope this is helpful. Good luck :slight_smile:

Hi! Congrats! Ugh that is so unfortunate though. I was really hoping to hear back pretty soon. I got my Wake Forest ID (with the 8 digits on my application portal) about a week after I submitted my application. Could it be that they have already looked at my application and made a “rough” decision before I had my interview and then they just needed the interview to make the final decision? Also I heard Wednesdays and Fridays are a popular day to hear back. Is it usually in the evening you get a status update? Thanks for the help!

Hi! Thank you! I think once you get your WFU ID, that means that they are reviewing your app. It is definitely a possibility that they have already reviewed it and are just waiting to make the final decision based on the interview! Everyone who I have seen getting accepted has been on a Friday around 8pm EST (you will receive an email about a status update).

Thank you so much! And fingers crossed! I’ll let you know when I hear back.

Yes! Good Luck! Hopefully you will hear in a few weeks

hi! i had all green check marks for everything except my interview on 9/1 and i didn’t get to do my interview until 9/22 as well. i’m so anxious to hear back! i thought i would’ve by now.

Hi! Yes, so we are basically in the same time frame. I’m also anxious to hear back. I’m thinking either this Friday or the next (16th) we could hear. Let me know when you hear back!

@happyicecream have you heard tonight?

Yeah, I was deferred. It’s ok though. Did you?

I’m sorry to hear that. I haven’t heard back yet.

was Wake a reach school for you?

Yeah it was a reach. Hopefully once I send my first semester grades I’ll get in.

My daughter applied ED last year, was deferred, and ended up getting in with a Presidential Scholarship in the regular round so it does happen. I’m told that Wake does not defer many and those applications are seriously considered. Good luck!

Wow! Thank you so much!

Did you apply to Wake and Richmond ED?
