what time today?
People getting accepted today, was it an email?
also do they send rejection emails?
I just got an email that said "decision made" and linked to the status checker. I assumed it was a rejection because it didn't say but it was A
has anybody else applied early action and not heard anything yet? should I assume an R?
I applied EA and haven't heard anything. Does not look like many responses have been given out either
Applied EA on 11/15 and heard back last week with the A, so you should be hearing soon
Applied EA in October and still haven't heard back - should probably assume rejection
i'm a bit bummed they don't negotiate, would've really wanted to go here
status gone. how long left?
Status also gone, stress incoming lmao
Is there a status checker other than the portal?
Not that I’m aware of
This WL waive is scarrrring me
status check has said "in review" since 12/14 :( hopefully that means I missed the WL wave lol
Which WL wave?? @cutestingyrhino
Oh nvm I see the wave
I’ve been under review since October :’(
That sucks ExcitedDuck. Hopefully you get your results soon - HTown tho...
Northeastern giving me 3400 a year is so disrespectful 😂😂
My checklist is gone from the status portal. What does that mean? Was there yesterday
Does checklist disappear when a decision has been made?
^it does btw
How long did people wait for scholarship info?
