I just checked several past cycles on LSN, and it looks like 1/23 has been the earliest (reliable) date for many cycles now...

I guess the wait continues.

I hate to freak everyone out further, but it appears that he/she was also offered a Hamilton.

And, freak-out begins.

Didn't Columbia send out emails for ED people?

No, Columbia comes in the mail.

My numbers are pretty similar to that guy's. I'm going to be twitching for days.

Any idea what you would do with money like that vs. your H acceptance?

Right, but read LSN about RD decisions.

RD does mail?

Is there a way to find out other than getting my physical mail?

The guy who posted is in Japan, so it's likely to made an exception and notified him by email.

This probably means they MAILED the decisions to the rest of us today.

i hope this does mean they mailed a wave of decisions today. lsn would seem to suggest a large number of decisions are coming. i guess we'll know and a day or two.

Sorry, I'm being retarded because I'm a nervous wreck.

I actually knew that since I got accepted to one of CN by mail...

Boo for being on the west coast.

Anyone change from Complete to something else on the status checker?


It never changed for me. Good luck everyone!

I thought they e-mailed a scanned copy of the acceptance letter? or is that only ED...

I think they're only emailing for overseas - I'm overseas and got the email as well, and they said it was a "scan" of the one they're sending in the mail, so I assume they figured it'd take much longer to send it to overseas people and save us the extra agony. Good luck everyone!!

Mallard says LSN indicates that that's only for ED. I'm a little surprised because ALLLLLL the RD acceptances last year are indicated on the same day. Don't most people use the date they received the letter? I would have thought dates would be more scattered if they did everything by snail mail.



That's a good point. I was wondering the same thing.

For me when I see "decision" I'm putting the date that my status checker changed to decision or the date that a decision was mailed, not the date that I receive it. I am surprised that ALL of the decisions for last year have the same date, though. Either an impressive logistical feat or a freak coincidence.
