did anyone else get a feeler email?
what did the email say?
18:52
^^^
22:13
they're expecting to make some offers in the next week and they won't be offering any scholarship aid

So it sounds like you’ll probably get an A?

Doesn’t seem like everyone got the feeler so I assume it’s limited fo

*limited to the individuals they anticipate admitting
Polus

got the same feeler email, declined it
HeavyCutPlatypus
19:25
Can they send it to me next 😭😭😭 I am on my knees groveling
^^ me too
21:06
I third that ^^
HeavyCutPlatypus
22:18
Maybe we should start daily check-ins to help with our sanity LOL
10:04
somehow i think that may lessen our chances...
i think they should give us all a waitlist check in so i can like move on with my life or not lol
12:33
agreed the unfortunate thing about the waitlist is they simply don’t care enough lol
HeavyCutPlatypus
12:46
Oh i meant like check-in amongst us. they'd probably strangle all of us if we started regularly calling them lol. I do agree though, some kind of update to the likelihood of getting off would be nice
lol i feel like i should just call at this point like im about to move to another city and sign a lease for an apartment lol
HeavyCutPlatypus
12:54
if it helps, i called on Monday and so did someone else. The information they're allowed to give isn't really helpful because it's what we already know (they've gone to WL once and are evaluating current class to determine if they'll go to WL again).
ahh ok that helps a little thank you!!!
anyone hear any updates?

One more person on reddit made it off.

HeavyCutPlatypus
22:23
More offers going out this week based on reddit! Not sure if me sharing here is redundant but thought it’d be helpful if anybody isn’t following on there but is here
yes please keep sharing--it's helpful!
any more updates?
HeavyCutPlatypus

ah has anyone heard anything else?
HeavyCutPlatypus
22:09
