April 15th, which schools have you heard from

Recommended Posts

April 15th is here, wondering if anyone is walking around glued to their phone like me. I’ve been waitlisted at 7 different schools. I’ve got an email from Loyola that  said they’d be sending out an email today with their first round of acceptances. Anyone else heard from/waiting on different schools?

I'd like to add a small note here that the April 15th Resolution applies only to funded offers and only to those schools that have signed onto it. I know that a great number of SLP programs are unfunded and aren't bound by it. With that being said, I wish you the best of luck into getting into your top choices and hope that you hear back soon. :)

Can you explain the April 15 th deadline.   I thought it was s universal deadline.  All of my schools were April 15.

“Acceptance of an offer of financial support* (such as a graduate scholarship, fellowship, traineeship, or assistantship) for the next academic year by a prospective or enrolled graduate student completes an agreement that both student and graduate school expect to honor. In that context, the conditions affecting such offers and their acceptance must be defined carefully and understood by all parties.


Students are under no obligation to respond to offers of financial support prior to April 15; earlier deadlines for acceptance of such offers violate the intent of this Resolution. In those instances in which a student accepts an offer before April 15 and subsequently desires to withdraw that acceptance, the student may submit in writing a resignation of the appointment at any time through April 15. However, an acceptance given or left in force after April 15 commits the student not to accept another offer without first obtaining a written release from the institution to which a commitment has been made. Similarly, an offer by an institution after April 15 is conditional on presentation by the student of the written release from any previously accepted offer.” -April 15th resolution.

In short, it only applied to schools offering you a financial aid package that includes a graduate assistanceship appointment or fellowship. It does not apply to admissions but schools are free to select the dates which they notify applicants and expect applicants to notify them of their decision. :)
