Or over the phone, rather
Yeah I have not gotten a log in or anything from them. Figured if I don't get anything today, I will call them. Thought I would have at least gotten "we received your application email" or something by now
I had to send them an email-- they just sent me a link back
Hey, I have a question for anyone that was accepted. Did you find out through the portal? or via US mail? The portal doesn't tell me the decision status but I just received a notification that states "applicant status online - mailing date 1/24/23"?
I got the same email today as well. However it says on the status checker that all decisions are sent through the US Postal service
When did you submit your application?
I submitted my application on 12/17/22 and the status changed to complete on 1/7/23.
We applied pretty close together, (12/19 sumbitted and 1/6 Complete)
I will definitely let you know if I receive any additional notifications. I just hope they don't take another 6-8 weeks to make a decision. I will lose my mind lol.
I'll do the same! And no kidding, this waiting is the worst. Makes it hard to plan the rest of my year
My status checker changed to accepted on Sunday 1/22 and I got a call from them today telling me, no email but they did say I would be getting a packet in the mail within the next couple weeks
Thank you for the update!
@legallybrunette-law: Hi, congrats on the acceptance! What did they specifically say about you being accepted. Additionally, did they make any mention about how slow/backed up they are with applications? Also (lol), what status update did you have prior to the 'accepted' one?
@FranticCuteKitten: thank you! he did not say anything super specific besides just saying congrats and that more information would be coming in the mail. Since I got my decision back within a month I did not ask about it being slow etc. I actually did not receive an email with my information. I waited three weeks then I called the admissions office. They gave me my login and by that point it already said "Under Review" and then changed to accepted. This seems to be a common theme that I am hearin
Congratulations on getting accepted @legallybrunette-law! Are there any applicants that applied in December still waiting for a response? As stated above, i applied 12/17, my status changed to complete on 1/7. My application status hasn't changed since 1/7/23... I'm going crazy over here lol
I applied 12/19 and went complete 1/6. Still havent heard anything either
My status date just changed again to Under Review
good luck! Def let me know what happens. I don't know why but I feel like all of my apps are in limbo...
my status has still not changed :(
Thank you! Hopefully you get an update soon!
Has anyone heard any decisions?
Yes; I emailed them yesterday to advise on when can we more or less expect all decisions to be out.. Today they informed (and it reflects the same on my status checker) that I was waitlisted.
Ugh! Manifesting it turns into an A for you!
Thank you! Me too! If I get any other updates - will let you guys know.
Got mine yesterday!
How long was your file under review until you asked for an email update?
Is it me, or is St. Thomas taking an oddly long time to respond? My application has been in review since late January. This is my number 1 choice because of how close I live to campus so I'm really stressing the delay. Luckily I was accepted to Nova late feb.
Eddy i dmed u with good info pertaining to ur situation btw
