I ended up calling the school and asking what was taking so long. The person I talked to told me that the program had NOT made decisions yet and there was some sort of delay. I told her what Dr. Gordon had told us, and she seemed confused. Dr. Gordon do you have any insight into this? It was my understanding that decisions had been made, it was just the admissions department we were waiting on now, but the lady I talked to today told me otherwise. Just trying to get life planned out and eagerly waiting for a response.

Okay another update— I talked with Danielle Lawrence and he said there was some sort of miscommunication with the process about how to send the decisions to the admission dept etc. They are HOPING to get emails/letters tomorrow or early next week 🤞🏽🤞🏽

Hi everyone!

So, yes, we have made our decision. NO, the admissions office has not been informed of our decisions. We are working through a new process of electronic acceptance. My plan is to get letters out first thing next week. It sounds like Daniel let you know that. There are a few people who have their hands in this work right now.

In the academic setting there are many layers when departments need to collaborate. In this instance, I was not aware that we have privacy regulations that do not let me simply send the letters myself like I did 12 months ago. I was not made aware by leadership of the admissions department that they need to be more involved until about one week ago. Add to it that we are not on campus all the time right now, and processes sadly do take a long time.

Please know a few things -

1. This is a priority for me. I know you are waiting.

2. We do not have to give you this level of detail about our processes. I am doing it to be kind and help you to understand that these issues are bigger than just me. Please do not use it against me by calling the admissions department.

Thank you so much! I appreciate your patience.

I really appreciate your communication Dr. Gordon! I apologize if I was over stepping by calling the school, just very anxious about everything. I understand you do not have to share this much detail with students, but know it is very much appreciated and reassuring in the waiting period. This is just another instance that makes Saint Mary’s stand out amongst other universities. Thanks again. I look forward to hearing soon 🙂
