ED II Decisions Available Online January 30

Posted by on Friday, January 30, 2015 in Early Decision, General Information.

It’s time . . .

As of 5:00 p.m. Central Time Friday, January 30, admissions decisions for Early Decision II applicants are available online through MyAppVU. Check the online decision release notes below for more details about checking your decision.

If you’re a regular reader of the Admissions Blog, you already know that MyAppVU is not only the best way to stay up-to-date about your application status, but also THE WAY to find out about your admissions decision (and if you’ve applied for it, any need-based financial aid award information, too).

Online Decision Release Notes:

As of 5:00 pm January 30, Early Decision II applicants can log into the MyAppVU portal to access admissions decisions. In addition, we recently emailed each ED II applicant with a personalized URL which will lead you directly to your admissions decision.

MyAppVU is THE WAY to find out your admissions decision. This means that if you have not yet created your MyAppVU account, it is imperative that you do so now. (And yes, we do know that some of you haven’t yet created your account – get on it!)

If you are admitted, please use MyAppVU to claim your spot in the Class of 2019 no later than March 1. Also, you must withdraw your application from other schools to which you’ve applied.

While all students will receive their decisions online via MyAppVU, admitted students will also receive their decision letter in the mail.

If you experience any difficulty logging in to your MyAppVU account, please contact for technical assistance.

    Hi Jay! I was wondering if all of the decisions were ready at 5:00. I still haven’t received my decision, and it has been an hour and a half. Should I be concerned?

    Thanks for the question. All students who applied through Early Decision should be able to view their admissions decision through MyAppVU. You will not receive a new email with the decision. If you’re having trouble viewing your decision through your MyAppVU portal, email for help. Please let me know if you need any other help!

    Hi I see that you admissions statistics state: “Percent of students who received one or more significant honors or held major leadership positions: 100%” – Can you give examples of “significant honors”? Would it be NMSF?

    Good question. Significant honors and major leadership positions can come from a wide range of activities. Examples include major academic achievements like becoming a National Merit Semifinalist, being an athletic team captain or wining a state or national championship, winning a state level award for fine arts or music, becoming an Eagle Scout or earning a Girl Scout Gold Award, and many others.
