Does anyone’s portal says nothing on their status?
Got the A and a full tuition scholarship offer just now. It went to my junk mail 😂
Has anyone else been accepted through the status checker but not received an email?
Did you check your junk mail?

It seems like they mail out the letters & scholarships. my tracker says accepted w/ scholarship but i did not get any email - it says letters have been mailed out
Still pending review since 12/5 should I email or do they just take a long time?
update if anyone curious or in the same position, I applied to the JD/MBA program and they emailed me back saying those applications take longer to process
hey does anyone know how long it takes to receive an email with the status portal info? i applied almost a month ago
I would definitely email them, that's strange
@SuperLoudSagittarius: I would check your spam emails. Mine ended up in my spam..
My portal says I got accepted but never got an email. SHould I reach out and ask? OR do they only send something in the mail?
