I didn't use all of them but I definitely think they helped me out and helped make up for a GPA that might not have been as strong as other applicants. Sorry I can't give more detail but not really trying to start on the wrong foot and piss anyone off, so hopefully there will be more info from them for the rest of you still waiting.


Can you at least tell us the form of notification? I.e. phone call, email, status update on the online app?

I understand not wanting to give too much info but I just want to know if checking the online app is even worth it at this point.

Oh and congrats!!! So exciting!


Sorry mate, I don't check the status update to often, would've driven me crazy. Got a call after a follow up interview. Not to say that I wouldn't bother with the online status update, but really, it can only serve to drive you crazy. I'm pretty sure they probably will call you before you get in going from last years results and just common sense. It seems obvious that most people would want to deliver good news in person rather than through an email. Despite how terse and professional they are, these people clearly have a modicum of care for the applicants they accept (otherwise they wouldn't be running this program), and it seems that after your in they are a little more familial. Just my thoughts though, I could be completely wrong.

Good luck to the rest of you and again, thanks for everyone that contributed solid advice and kept the thread on track. I hope to be able to give back in the future.


Was the call from a blocked number?

A long, dry SEO cycle with nothing to do but stalk this thread. If you do the same, you'll find it. Two of the three were accepted over two weeks ago.

You are indeed wrong my friend, keep your head up. Also, lol, please delete the stalkery.

Edit: Although I'll admit, your internet ninja and sleuthing abilities are unrivaled. That was impressive timing to catch a mistake; I can't even be mad -_-.

Edit 2: Also the other guy that quoted, I'd appreciate it.

i figure a small number of us got in at this point and we are just all afraid of outing ourselves. Someone should take the initiative and create a private Facebook group. Or perhaps it is best to let the majority of folks get in?

Looks like 1 so far.



Are you the one for NYC? I looked at some of the recent posts, and NYC is not clearly indicated.

A few things to keep in mind:

1) Many people are refusing to post about acceptances, you can blame the mass paranoia that has struck this year's thread.

2) Even all those that would post on TLS wouldn't be the entire class so you have to consider that, for example, 1 confirmed NY or 2 confirmed DC acceptances probably represent a lot more. (Especially given consideration #1)

3) Yes, NY is not clearly indicated but yes there is definitely at least 1 NY acceptance.

Its also possible SEO is telling admits not to post anything online, for fear that anxious applicants would ramp up their calling/emailing efforts

Ok, so I understand if people are hesitant to post about when they got their calls and other details, but could somebody who was accepted share which area code the call came from?

This is creepy as hell. I hope no one shares it. You're going to scare the hell out of the staff, lol.

I wouldn't be surprised if they block their calls after reading this.

Not really but ok.

It's just an area code, and probably for a huge metropolitan area. It helps to ease the tension when you miss a call from an unknown number if you know what area code SEO calls from.

I also think it's very inconsiderate of SEO if indeed they have issued a gag order. This year's cycle is abnormally late and while I am sure they are busting their asses to select the class, we are also sweating our asses off figuring out what the hell we're gonna do in the summer. It's not just finding out, for many people the SEO decision determines what city they'll be in, and moving plans can't be made otherwise. Not to mention the struggle of finding an apartment on such short notice whether you're selected and have to move to the city or not selected and have to move elsewhere for the summer.

You sound way too entitled dude. Its a huge privilege to do this program and the short notice comes with the territory

so then drop out of consideration for the program and plan your summer accordingly? i don't get why you're so whiny about this.
