The University mail room staff just picked up a bunch of boxes of packets for admitted students in the U.S. and in certain other countries that don’t need courier service. We’ve finished packing up everything for the admitted MALD, MA, and PhD students, and Laurie, Kristen, Kate, and Peter are packing up the MIBs right now. Liz has the critical but unenviable job of taping the packets together so that everything arrives in good shape. Whatever hasn’t gone into the mail today will go on Monday.
But I know, you blog readers are really expecting to get the word via the Application Management System, and you’re less concerned with the mail. So here’s the deal. I’m writing now because I need to leave the office, but others will be staying to post decisions online. The hope is that they’ll get to every category we have (admit, deny, wait list for all five programs) but the possibility definitely exists that one or more categories will need to wait until Monday. (Which is why I try to maintain some wriggle room for us. Things happen.)
So…check your email tonight or tomorrow. If you haven’t heard anything, then your decision will be among those posted on Monday. Fingers crossed (and today is Friday the 13th, so finger crossing seems like a good strategy), you’ll all have the information you need before Monday at noon. Even knowing that everyone is anxious to hear from us, we won’t be working this weekend, and no decisions will be posted tomorrow or Sunday.
This seems like a good time to say how much we appreciate your interest in The Fletcher School. Thanks for sharing your stories through interviews, applications, and phone conversations! I’ll be back next week with information on making plans for enrollment, as well as on the Wait List and the process to request feedback later in the spring.
Good luck, everyone!
