    The early action notification deadline is quickly approaching on the 15... Just wanted to know if anyone is still waiting to be either accepted or deffered to general admissions? Not sure if it's a good or bad thing to wait to hear back until last minute. If anyone has any info, please let me know! Thank you!

    Yeah, seriously! I heard that they handed out all the deffered letters already... which would just leave the appointments/LOAs, but i'm really not sure that's true.

    Yeah did you hear that on here? I saw the same thing in a few posts but wasn't ready to take that to the bank.. I actually haven't heard of nearly any EA appointments thus far. I have a sneaky feeling they are going to hang on to any word until right up to the 15th...:help:

    Heard from an ALO that all deffered to general admissions should have heard... But there's always a chance it's not 100% valid. I'm thinking they're weighing our applications against others and going from there. Although, it is admissions so knowing anything for sure is impossible. Haha

    Ha, I think that goes for the military in general. Seriously though, this waiting is killing me. If I don't sit down I start pacing.

    Yeah, getting a deffered letter the last day possible would not be ideal. Let's hope for appointments/LOAs. :thumb:

    My understanding is, if you're qualified academically, physically and medically you 99.9% won't get dropped with EA. Maybe in general admissions if you get deffered, but you'd find out later in the year. I think it would take more time for outright rejection letters. Didn't get mine last year until March and now I reapplied. I don't think that's an issue here for anyone.

    I feel like I can't wait any longer! I'm glad I'm not the only one checking every day ;)

    I'm really hoping I see a flood of everyone on here putting names onto the appointment thread by Wednesday! :)

    I hope so too! Talked to admissions counselor today - letters will go out soon apparently, although I couldn't get info about if all the deferred letters were sent already. Hang in there, guys! Almost there. Also, calling your admissions counselor won't necessarily help - mine said he doesn't know application status yet. Patience is a virtue.

    call from Admissions

    DS received a call from his Admissions counselor yesterday notifying him of his appt. DS is not a recruited athlete, prior enlisted, or any special category, other than EA. So, some admissions counselors must know, and others not (or else they're not saying.) We were told it might take a week or so more for portal to reflect the appt.

    Area? I guess you mean geographically -- Northeast. Maybe notifications are done by region, then?
