As we continue our work on fall 2019 freshman admission decisions, some of your students will hear from us over the next few days. We ask that you not announce this to students so they are notified through our normal emails and MyStatus messages.
Please keep in mind that we do plan to admit some fall 2019 students to the majors they selected as their second choice. The admissions process works the same for these students as it does for those admitted to their first choices — except MyStatus reflects that the major was the one they selected as their second choice when they applied for admission.
We are making good progress on decisions and will deliver admission offers (or deferral notifications) to all priority applicants no later than Feb. 1. All fall 2019 decisions will be made and delivered no later than Mar. 1.
Please let me or your contact in the Office of Admissions know if you have questions or requests. I’ll be in touch soon with more information.
