Some of you may have already heard from schools, but for those of you still waiting, it’s almost time. When I worked in admissions, we mailed on April 1 (as with all Ivies) which is a Sunday this year. Most likely schools will still mail sometime around that date.
If you’re really anxious you can call the admissions office but before doing that, ask your guidance counselor to see if s/he has spoken with your colleges. If not, and if you just can’t bear to run home everyday to check the mail, check the school’s website and if the information isn’t there, call. Be ready, though, that they may give you the unsatisfying answer of “soon.” Remember also that they may be communicating decisions electronically in conjunction with mailing letters.
