    I’m an overseas applicant and I got a (rejection) email. I can’t say that I’m surprised though-let’s just say I’m a bit superstitious- the more I tell people about something (it’s not my fault, when they heard I went there for the summer, they wouldn’t stop pestering me about, “Are you going to apply?” “Have you applied?” etc, etc. And you can only hold up the “I haven’t decided yet” bluff for so long…), the higher chance there is of me failing miserably. I’m not joking, there has been a trend throughout the years, and I kind of noticed it a few months ago. Though, I do have to say that I’m happy they rejected me now rather than after an interview, because, well… airplane tickets aren’t cheap, especially if it’s just for a one or two day thing, and that would probably just make me mad that I spent the money and got virtually nothing from it, except for an interview experience (so I guess I should silently thank the admissions board for that haha) Speaking of emails, I don’t really know much about the etiquette in terms of replying… Do I send an email to the address that emailed me the letter thanking them for considering me, or should I physically mail it, or…?
    Please email them and thank them, though you got a rejection email.

    Okay, I ended up doing that anyway because it felt a little rude to just ignore it

    Do they send out a rejection letter/email to overseas applicants? I've been waiting for a reply for about 2 weeks but alas, no dice :/ A rejection letter would seriously be better than this silence right now.
    I hope you got a response. If not, give them a call. They are very helpful.

    Any idea when it is sat? The invite listed my 3 interviews but did not mention the test. Nor did the college website. Only the university's main website mentions it but provides no further details.
