    @dude2001, that would be great. I think we're all tired of the waiting. But who knows. I'm watching their instagram and twitter feed for clues, btw.

    @elena719 nothing wrong with Case-it’s a top school with one of the best medical schools in the country. Plus Cleveland is an underrated city. I would recommend it as an option (plus they are generous with merit aid).

    Rochester is a good school, but the city is kind of boring compared to Cleveland. One of my former coworkers was born and raised in Rochester and wanted to leave the place ASAP.

    @hamurtle yeah, I’d be happy to send him to either of those excellent schools. He has been accepted at both, but he hasn’t visited them. If Washu is a no, we’re going to have to go visit, and I’m already a little tired of visiting colleges.

    I wonder how many apps they received for ED2. I think I read somewhere ED1 apps were flat, meaning about the same number as last year. Since this is their first year doing ED2, maybe they didn’t get a huge number. They aren’t publicizing the number, afaik, which also leads me to believe it’s not huge. Wishful thinking?

    @elena719 given that they extended the ED2 deadline a week, I think they must not have gotten that many. Will be interesting to see how it turns out.

    I think it would be bad form to release decisions on Valentine’s Day. Is that ever done? I’m going with the 13th as my guess.

    I don’t remember announcements made on Wednesday. And if 2/14 is bad form, then Friday is as good a date as any.

    And RD results will be announced around the 2nd week of March if form holds true as that’s spring break.

    Did Wash U interview ED II applicants?

    @hooonw good question. My son who applied ED2 did not get contacted for an interview. I assumed it was because he applied at the end of Dec and it was too late. But maybe they just didn’t offer them to everyone. My older son who is a WAshu sophomore applied regular decision and had an interview.

    Alumnae interviews are assigned on a first come basis, handled through a different department than admissions and determined by alumnae geographic availability. No connection to acceptance positioning.

    I'm a WU Alumni interviewer and we always do the interviews in mid-January. They are on a first come first serve basis. None of the kids this year were ED2. Hope that helps.

    Yes, the only reason why I had two ED2 applicants is because they both switched from RD to ED2 after the interviews.

    Interesting discussion on this page in the ED1 thread regarding day/time expectations:

    https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/washington-university-st-louis/2061842-washington-university-in-st-louis-2023-ed-p8.html

    Apparently, if applicants haven't received an email by ~3pm central time (~1pm pacific time) on a given day, it probably means that the notifications aren't going out that day. So you can stop refreshing your email for today. ;)

    Tomorrow is another day! Good luck, all.

    The son (Class of 2021) got an email notification to check his status at 3:05 Pacific Time (5:05 Central)-this was for ED. So just check around 5:30 Central Time starting Thursday. If there is no email, check the next day.

    At this point there is no use stressing out, so try to relax as much as possible.

    I got an email about 20-30 minutes after decisions were released (ED1 this year), and that was the only warning we got. The only reason I knew to check my portal was because there were rumors in the ED1 thread that the decisions were coming out. They came out a bit before 5:30 eastern time this year.

    I’m really hoping for today... ed1 came out on a Thursday though so that seems more likely.
