Tips for December 16
First, congratulations for being a part of our Early Action applicant pool! We had FANTASTIC applicants, and we are eagerly waiting to update your status on December 16 (I’m sure you’re eagerly waiting, too!).
It’s a big day, and I want to pass along some recommendations and advice.
Please, please, please make sure you can access your myIllini account before December 16. You can reset your password by clicking “Forgot your username or password.” If you are having trouble logging into your account, please call us (you may get to talk to me!).
Patience is a virtue. We anticipate myIllini will operate slightly slower on December 16 because of the number of applicants logging on to view their status. Here’s what you can do:
- If you are experiencing some delays, please do not continue to hit the refresh button (it really won’t help).
- You should be the only one logging into your account. If your family and friends are also trying to view your decision, you will be waiting together longer.
- Check social media, watch the mid-season finale of your favorite show, take a power nap, or eat a snack and come back to your account a bit later.
When you log in on the 16th, you’ll see one of three statuses on your application status page: admit, deny, or defer. Check out our website for more information about different decisions.
This is an exciting time! As always, please feel free to contact our office with any questions (shameless plug to follow me on twitter @kaci_uofi).
