  1. Great article! Are the decisions emailed? Snail mailed? Arriving on Friday or mailed on Friday? Curious…

    1. Hi Wrigley’s Mom, some schools use regular mail and email (for acceptances). Other schools just use regular mail. From what I understand, most schools don’t use email for rejection letters. Thanks for the question! Christina

  2. Christina, thank you so much for your helpful book and blog! Do you know which schools send out e-mail acceptances?

  3. Waitlisted at our top choice, now what? Anything one can do (tips, thoughts) to get off the list and in to the school… 🙂

  4. Great advice! Thank you. One last question, how long are these wait-lists at these top schools, more or less?

  5. Hi, I really don’t know the answer and I think each school is different. You can ask the school if you’ve been wait-listed and maybe they will tell you. – Christina
