I asked for an expedited decision yesterday. I only attached my admission letters (2) plus admission emails (3), as I have not received the admission packages yet for 3 schools.

Are admission emails enough or does it need to be a letter?

I sent admission emails and they were enough. Good luck!

I asked for an expedited decision on Sunday and I got my acceptance today.

I think it can only help - they might have doubts on your application (since they haven't responded yet) but they see you're keen on them and that other univeristies want you...

so I'd say go for it!

Sent email yesterday requesting expedited decision, hasn't received any reply.

Hoping not to be like the 'Bad Luck Brian' meme from 9gag.

My deadlines are pretty far away (mid april). I was wondering if I should e-mail anyway. I am worried that CLS might think that I was not addmited to any other uni' which might lower my chances to get in.
What do you think?

In your case, I think you should wait.

Guys, I received my financial aid decision from CLS an hour ago. They will probably release all financial decisions by weekend.

Good luck!

Yes, a tuition waiver.
Thank god!
The overall cost is more reasonable now. Still incredibly high but every penny helps.

I sent an expedite admission decision today in the morning and few hours ago they requested me the letter of admission and scholarships offers from other programs. I hope I will received good news. I have to make most decisions by April 1.

To those still waiting for admossion/financial decision - don't give up just yet.

I was admitted on December 22 (early review) and waited until yesterday for financial aid decision. It was a long wait and I was nervous because a couple of candidates indicated on this forum that they have received tuition waivers. I thought I stand no chance since deadlines are approaching but was proven wrong! A considerable tuition waiver was offered to me yesterday.
If I had to guess, CLS waits with the majority of financing decisions closer to deadlines when students who take offers from other schools decline CLS' admission offers. Now they have a smaller pool of candidates to offer them financing.

My deadline is April 3, which I think is the same for those who have been offered financial aid this week. Some will probably decline and allow CLS to offer their aid to other candidates who are still awaiting decision.

If I am right, waiting doesn't necessary mean a bad thing. You may still be surprised :)

Hope my view and info were helpful, and wish all of you good luck!

Applied for an expedited review as well..waiting for the response..


I applied for an expedited decision as well 2 days ago and they didn't even reply to the email or anything.

It seems there is no chance of getting admitted this late if they've already given out so many offers and even financial aid....

As I mentioned earlier, I think that this is the time when some offers are being rejected and these places are pass to the next in line who are waiting for a decisions.
This is surely true for some amount of places because candidates must decide and enroll due to deadlines and cannot sit on the fence any longer. At this time, there are always people who may take other tempting offers for financial or other reasons and vacate places at CLS.
I am sure that we will hear about people who receive an admission decision or scholarship in the next two weeks.

Good luck!
