Please help! Admitted without submitting application

Postby zl0001 » Sat Feb 11, 2017 10:53 am

I just received an email from George Washington:

Congratulations! A celebration is in order as your hard work has earned you a place within the George Washington University Columbian College of Arts & Sciences. Housed in a city unlike any other, as a graduate student at GW, you will gain an education unlike any other. The whole city is your classroom, and our graduate students emerge with not only a degree, but with experiences that could only happen here. As a graduate student at Columbian College, you will be part of a thriving community of scholars. Access to leading educators and thinkers, state-of-the-art facilities and vast educational resources help our students on their journey to becoming leaders and innovators in their communities—and across the world.

We look forward to you accepting our offer of admission and joining a diverse group of 14,000+ graduate students, from all 50 states, Washington, DC, and 130 countries. We look forward to seeing you on campus!

Sincerely,


Can someone tell me if this is an admission? It is so weird since I did not even submit my application.

THat's weird. Why don't you e-mail the the GW grad department, attach the e-mail, and ask if they sent it? There's not much we can do especially if you didn't post what e-mail it came from.

Thank you very much for your reply. The email came from gradccas@gwu.edu and the sender is the director of Graduate Studies. Therefore, it looks rather official. I have asked them if they can send me more details about my admission. I assume that they are not very likely to respond on weekends.

Either it is a mistake, or they can see your incomplete application on your profile or whatever (I assume this is the case) and they just accepted you as if you submitted it.
