College Acceptance Notifications by SMS
January 30th, 2006

A welcome alternative for High school students waiting to hear if they’ve been accepted at Creighton University in Nebraska; checking their cell phone instead of their mailbox.

According to the Associated Press, “since November, 700 students – or 44 percent – of those admitted to Creighton University have been notified through a text message. The school added the option on application forms last fall.”

Students are so interested in having instant information,” said Mary Chase, director of admissions and scholarships at Creighton.

She said text messages are sent to students within 24 hours of the admission committee’s decisions, whereas letters can take several days to draft and then arrive in the mail.”
