Pleeeease let there be a wave today.
Anyone know what time of day they release decisions?
I received an A in the late morning (11:00 ish). And they seem to like Friday releases.
has anyone gotten any swag with their acceptance?
@tbanks14, no, and I’m a little sad about it.
My status changed to review and A in like 2 hours. Goddamn. Wooo! First A
not sure if anyone would know this, but is there any info on when kent honors finalist decisions came out last year? the site says end of feb/early march
I got an email when I was accepted that just said they noted my application to the honors program and the committee would be reviewing honors applications shortly after the 2/17 deadline. I also think honors finalists are interviewed at the admitted students visit day, which is 3/31-4/1. Fingers crossed we hear something this week!
i'm also waiting to hear about whether I will be granted a Kent honors interview
I got an email about the Kent honors program yesterday! No idea if they all go out at once
are you a finalist?
I am! I get to interview during admitted students weekend 3/31-4/1
is there an admitted students discord
If there is one, I'll join!
will they give decisions before the deposit deadline?
They usually get back to people with decisions pretty quick. I think seat deposit deadlines are somewhat adjusted if you submit an application close to the deposit date
mine just went UR3, all text disappeared, and a blank scholarship box was added? this happen to anyone else?
