This question was probably answered before somewhere but do they send the rejection/acceptance/ waitlist all together or acceptance first then rejections?

If you're waitlisted you'll be told in your letter. If you're rejected, there is no getting on a waitlist after that, its final!

Good luck everybody

Everything goes out all at once

Can anyone remember from past years what time the letters have come out? 

I'd say 10:00am to 10:30am... If no one has heard anything by noon, then it's back to curling up in a ball in the back of your closet until tomorrow...

The last time I applied they came out on a Tuesday, if the Ad Com does meet on Mondays that would make sense. Maybe assume a half ball position?

I believe they came out on a Monday last year... March 5th.

I called. They said won’t be today... :/ and that “they’ll come out before the end of the month”

 

good luck everybody 

I can't decide if I'm relieved today will be a more or less ordinary day, or if I'm more stressed that the time results come out seems even more vague, haha. Thanks for sharing your conversation.

It's the anticipation that makes me wish it was today. Another day of checking

Did anyone else just receive that reminder email to complete the AFMC survey for feedback on applying?

How do they have time to send this out but not admissions decisions? They are just playing with us at this point :(

That was initially sent out after the interview, can't remember if it was that day or just a few days later. It's probably an automatic reminder sent out at this point.

Something tells me it’s not a matter of literally sending an e-mail hahah they’re probably still ranking and formulating wait lists and sorting acceptances!

as much as we’d all love to complain about everyone and everything standing in the way of acceptance day let’s be thankful if he opportunity to apply and be patient! I’m sure they’re not waiting to send them just to give us a hard time XD

I'm so, so curious about the process. I was assuming most of the numbers for each applicant are done by now (i.e. how many points scored for each extra-curricular, interview etc.) and the ranking was probably done, but that it takes a while to upload everything and get it ready to send out especially since you wouldn't want to make any mistakes. But maybe not like you said, maybe the final stage is pretty fast but making the ranking is fairly involved and continues for a while. Also I wonder if the letters are automatically composed and uploaded, or if they have to be manually written and then uploaded for each individual? I would imagine error-checking and making everything is correct for each applicant would be super tedious and time consuming?
