In Review again

Postby ISTAND » Mon Jan 03, 2011 6:43 pm

Does it mean anything when your application is "In Review" and the as/of date changes, for example from 11/20 to 12/10 to 1/3. From your experience, do you notice getting accepted more often when there are such updates or is it totally random? For example if they weren't interested in your app wouldn't it just revert to decision rendered instead of another update?

I have seen this on a few of my application status checkers. I think this means another person is reviewing your file, and soon there should be something.

It depends on the school, but it generally means your file is being reviewed again.

But is that a good sign or it doesn't make a difference that it is being reviewed again?

It depends on the school. Some schools only do one review for auto-admits and multiple for those under consideration. Others do multiple reviews for all applicants and it just means you are moving through the system. If you want to know, look to the waiting thread for the particular school.
