How long does it take for app to go from complete -> review?

Postby paperrev » Mon Jan 20, 2014 11:20 pm

Hey guys, so pretty simple question here. Sent in all my apps Jan. 6 (late, I know). I was just wondering a) when I can expect my apps to go from "complete" to "under review" and b) if I should be worried if this status doesn't change soon enough? My app has been under review for Berkeley and Stanford for more than a week now, but no news from any of the other schools. Should I be worried that my status isn't changing?? :(

Varies by school. But in general, if you submitted in January it's way too early to be worrying.

I submitted in mid-december and it took about a month for almost all of them (except stanford which was immediate).

Okay then follow-up question: though I guess I'm a bit more reassured now, how much do you think this will hurt my chances of getting in?? From what I've read, it seems that most schools hand out decisions February-March, but if my file isn't even in review yet... should I be worried in terms of getting an admittance??

Thanks in advance. Nervous applicant here haha.
