Email from admit@myfirstchoiceschool...what does it mean?

I would ask for clarification because I would imagine that everyone who applied would not get this email, so it would seem to suggest that you were admitted, but don't get ahead of yourself and seek confirmation from the department or grad school. It may very well have been a mistake since it seems odd that they would send you an email like that out of the blue. Good luck!

I received a similar email from a grad school I applied to today as well (weird), though it's not my first choice.

Although, it is asking me to register for orientation during the summer but was also from admit@school.edu. Is this a general orientation email for everyone who applied or have I not heard about a possible acceptance??

Hi guys, I'm new here but today I also got an email from admit@schoolname.edu. I interviewed for the department last Friday and I was told letters were being mailed out today. Keeping my fingers crossed that the "register for orientation" email is good news!

I broke down and called the number at the bottom of the email, the Department of Scholarships and Admissions. At first the lady I spoke with seemed to indicate this MUST mean I've been accepted, but then she backpedaled when I asked if she was sure, had proof in front of her, etc. She transferred me to the Office of the Graduate School, who were very perplexed about the email having been sent out, and reported that their phones had been ringing off the hook all morning with similar inquiries.

Ugh. I'm attempting to not be frustrated, but I'm failing at it...

I'm sorry! I hope you hear good news soon :)

I'm too scared to call my school :P

I hope it is an acceptance for you both, Rainbow and Neuro!!

My birthday was yesterday and I had a nice little birthday email/e-card from a program that I applied to waiting in my inbox when I woke up Sunday morning. It stated "___ has a special message for you on this important day. (P.S.) If you have speakers, turn them on!" I nervously clicked the link and ... wait for it ... ... It was a happy birthday midi tune with an animated birthday cake... I almost had a heart attack, thinking it was a special recorded message just for me stating that I had been accepted (Yes, that would have been over the top, but I can dream can't I?!). I did appreciate the kind gesture however, I was bummed that it wasn't what I was hoping for. Then I got to thinking and began reading into the simple birthday email a little too much. "Maybe they really like me! Maybe i'm accepted!! :lol: or maybe it's something they do for all applicants... :( "

I feel your pain guys (well, in a different sense). Thanks for not helping my paranoia simple, yet thoughtful birthday email!

Seriously, this is bizarre. My guess is that somebody in the admissions office was looking over your file and realized that your birthday was imminent, and had a slight attack of whimsy. I can't imagine that this happens often!

This is kind of amazing. I give MAJOR props to that school. And a singing message announcing acceptance is straight out of Harry Potter, which makes it that much better. Honestly, this process would be pseudo-enjoyable if all grad school-related emails had a tune/beat. Then even "We are processing your applications now, please stop emailing us you crazies" would be exciting to hear.

the lady from the department that sent the email (the office of scholarships and admissions) called me back today to apologize, saying that there must'vte been a computer glitch, for any grad school applicants to recieve an email that was aparently intended for undergrads.

***Update***

I got accepted into the program that sent me the singing birthday email. The acceptance letter was dated 5 days after my birthday. So, sometimes random emails from a program that you applied to might be a good thing!

The fact that it was one of my top choices was the icing on the cake though! tongue.gif Stay positive and optimistic all! The wait is almost over!!!

They sent me an email inviting me for an interview over a week ago, with a promise of a date for the interview the begining of this week. Then they sent another one saying that they would select the date in the next week. I'm suddenly not so impressed with their organizational skills...
