Did ASU really get back to you in 5 days? That's crazy. I just went complete for Early Admission yesterday

Friday, March 10 2017 at 08:02 PM

Yes, I applied Non-Binding Early Admission, and they were the first school that I heard back from

Tuesday, December 12 2017 at 10:11 AM

Thanks for providing comprehensive descriptions of the process.

You're killing your cycle! Very confused about SLU tho?

Friday, March 10 2017 at 08:02 PM

I am assuming it is yield protection. On my application I indicated all of the other 18 schools that I was applying to, and SLU was the lowest ranked. I think they assumed, correctly, that they were just a safety school I did not intend to matriculate at.
