Will they send all decisions out w/in 10 minutes after 5 PM EST?

By Shabadew (Shabadew) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 12:38 am: Edit

i got deferred early. they were supposed to send them at 5 i think, and mine came at 5:13. longest thirteen minutes of my life.

By Webhappy2 (Webhappy2) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 12:40 am: Edit

Do acceptances come a bit earlier? Hm... when did they send the first email? 13 minutes is quite slow, and w/ the whole RD round + deferees, could take ~40 minutes to get the email

By Shabadew (Shabadew) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 12:44 am: Edit

haha. i just noticed the irony in waiting an 13 minutes to get deferred. ah 13. you dog.

Wait, did it come at 5:13 Arizona time? I thought we would get the advantage of being 2 hours behind Boston.

I was accepted, and mine came about 14 minutes after 5.

By Drfunk (Drfunk) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 02:35 pm: Edit

i was deferred and i got mine at 5:12pm eastern

By Itay (Itay) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 05:16 pm: Edit

I was deferred Early and got it 10 minutes after 5 (00:10am for me since I was in Israel).

I think it will come within an hour.

wow 5:00 eastern so 2:00 Pacific right, hmmm i'll be at my college class till 4:00, i don't think i'll be able to pay attention.

By Ambitiousyokel (Ambitiousyokel) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 09:57 pm: Edit

EA decision came four minutes after.

By Ct04 (Ct04) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 10:10 pm: Edit

Heh, I had to wait till 5:23 for my deferral. NOT a fun wait. With the volume, I'd say you'll probably be waiting a max of 40 minutes.

By Effyoo2 (Effyoo2) on Monday, March 29, 2004 - 10:22 pm: Edit

I totally forgot that it was that day, so I didn't check my email until about 10:00 that night. And then I got my deferral.

By Sheri (Sheri) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 05:46 am: Edit

Im international so my decisons are gonna come out at 3:00 AM on 2ND APRIL!!!! Hows that for unfairness?????

By Upandover (Upandover) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 08:29 am: Edit

Mine is 6.00 am on 2nd April.. I would like to see anyone beat that!

By Eurostar (Eurostar) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 07:45 pm: Edit

Oh, Upandover, that sucks!

BTW, I got my early acceptance at 4:04 PM, CST.

By Webhappy2 (Webhappy2) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 09:14 pm: Edit

is 4:04 CST = 5:04 EST?

By Eccentricity (Eccentricity) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 09:20 pm: Edit

yea it is

By Chasgoose (Chasgoose) on Tuesday, March 30, 2004 - 09:34 pm: Edit

It doesn't make a difference what the local time is when we check our decisions. We still are all going to have to wait the same amount of time until we get them. Yeah upandover doesn't get hers until 6:00 AM April 2nd, but that means currently it is 10:30 AM March 31st where she is. It only sucks a lot if the decision comes in the middle of the night like for sherri (6:00 isn't great either but it is a bit better).

By Scarletgirl (Scarletgirl) on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 - 11:14 am: Edit

I didn't know they emailed them! I thought I had to log in somewhere. Yay!

By Piquant77 (Piquant77) on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 - 11:39 am: Edit

hehe, 6 a.m. is worse. I'm not a morning person, but I would have no problem staying up til 3. good luck you guys!! You'll all end up somewhere great. :)

Getting my decision at 3:30 am on April 2nd..... sounds like torture doesn't it???

By Sheri (Sheri) on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 - 12:29 pm: Edit

well i have my final exam at 8:00 AM 2nd April ... soooo THTS THE WORST BY FAR!!!!!!

By Gabypa (Gabypa) on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 - 09:31 pm: Edit

The day I received my EA result, the e-mail arrived at 5:04 pm EST.

By Alphachimp (Alphachimp) on Thursday, April 01, 2004 - 04:20 pm: Edit
