LSN shows a few acceptances between 1/14-1/22 and then on the 23rd it looks like their first large batch of decisions go out.

Although, CLS didn't follow their previous year's patterns during ED this year - so the info I just gave you is probably completely pointless :wink:

So are they really not sending out any info about ASW, housing, etc until February? I feel like it said that in my letter, but I'm on the west coast and have to give my job *a little* warning before I run off to New York for four days! I also want to go away for the summer, so I'd like to know when I can move in :roll:

That's how it sounded in the letter.

Just promise work they won't have to deal with any more episodes of you crying in the corner - they'll probably be relieved enough to let you take any amount of time off.

:lol:

Hahahaha true that :D . The file delivery people don't look at me sideways anymore, so I guess they didn't notice/don't remember the crying as much as I thought. Four days off would be nice and the crying is nothing that two or three months of summer vacation won't fix. Now if only I can convince my firm to pay me to not be here this summer...

Did your acceptance letter have the paragraph about being ED? Just curious since it's after December.

thanks guys! it's been so good to have TLS to turn to in my anxiety during the past few weeks.
Prodigy, it did have a paragraph about ED (w the standard stuff about w/drawing other apps immediately).

good luck to everyone who's still waiting; i hope to see you all in the fall!

Anyone planning to travel overseas this spring/summer? I'm hoping to bail on my job and travel in an undisclosed developing nation for 3-4 weeks in May or June, but I'm worried about missing housing/loan deadlines and e-mails after reading this (very helpful!) thread:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=176

Just wondering if anyone has had similar concerns...

Yeah I'm planning on visiting some friends in Europe for at least a couple weeks before CLS starts (which is apparently kind of early, right? Like in August?). I think if you make sure your mail is going to a permanent address where family or a close friend can pick up your mail you should be fine. Like on the application it had you list a date when you'd no longer be living at your current address. Hopefully my parents can either forward me the mail or just tell me if there's something I need to do.

I guess e-mail's a little more difficult to intercept though if you won't have internet access...

Thx for the link btw! Great info. I know there's some ridiculously long thread (like 200 pages) on LSD w some info but it was exhausting sifting through it all.

Any idea when the RD should go out? This week or next week, I presume?

Or the week after next. In cycles past I think the earliest has been around Jan. 23rd and the latest start has been around the 28th.

I think there were some Jan 14 acceptances last year, so there might be some this week. Then again, they were late with the ED decisions so....

E-mails for ED seemed to come out on Wednesdays and I noticed someone on LSN said that last year too. (Any EDers who heard on a different day can and should definitely correct me here if I'm wrong.)
