Round One Decisions: It’s a Wrap!

It’s finally Dec. 12! And that means that our round one decisions have been released! I think I can hear a collective deep breath being taken across our office and I imagine you have taken one as well.

If you were offered admission to the Tepper School, we want to celebrate with you! Tag @TepperCMU on Instagram in your celebration selfies to be shared.

I am excited to think about those of you who will choose to become some of the first students in our incoming class! I also want to personally have the chance to welcome you (our newly admitted students!) to our Welcome Weekend, April 5-6, 2019. Be sure to stay tuned for more information about that weekend if you were just admitted.

So, what is next? No matter the outcome of your admission decision, know that we seriously consider every application and appreciate your hard work and thoughtfulness in submitting your application. For those of you who are currently on our waitlist, I’ll have some words for you in early January about some steps you might take to stay engaged with the Admissions team. If you were offered admission, stay tuned to the Countdown website. There you’ll find a lot of exciting and important information that we will post in the coming months.

For those of you reading who will be submitting your application in round two – now is your time! I’ll be sharing a post next week with some tips for your final application touches. I imagine you are putting the finishing touches on your application and getting ready to submit.

Please know that the university will be closed from Dec. 21 through Jan. 1. We will be back in the office on Wednesday, Jan. 2. If you have any last-minute questions about submitting your application, be sure to send them by Dec. 21 (or sooner). Be kind to Judy who answers our main Admissions number.
