Hi everyone,
I submitted my Early Decision application to Wake Forest July 31. Wondering who else was already accepted and when they submitted their app. Stats would also be helpful.

    I just got my acceptance letter yesterday. I applied almost exactly six weeks ago, so that is about how long it will take for ED.
  • Newbie13Newbie13 Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
    Did your application say completed six weeks ago? My D's ED form was not rec'd until 2 weeks after everything else was submitted. My guess 6 week countdown starts at completion.
  • DaDeacManDaDeacMan Registered User Posts: 15 New Member
    Yes the six week countdown does start when everything is in their database. Once they have everything they need they six weeks begin.

    I submitted my ED application around early November (around the 5th) and received my acceptance letter the 28th. So it only took around 3 weeks for me

    If I submitted my app on November 15th when should I expect to get my response.
