Based on the timelines in this thread, this isn't a hard and fast rule. There have been shorter and longer turnaround times, but it seems there was a big chunk of people who went under review on Tuesday and were accepted Friday.

I didn't mean to say it's officially 3 days. Just an observation.... My apologies for misleading anyone.

Not a hard and fast rule; I went UR on 6/15 and DR 6/17. Although one marginal difference between that particular group of offers and the latest batch is that they're making admissions offers via email as opposed to phone call now.

I went UR on 6/23. Top 10-15% at a t20...not holding my breath. Anyone else go UR on the 23rd? Expecting a call today?

I believe I went UR the same day.

No love yet.

Numbers? I doubt it matters, but I wonder if there is any correlation...

Within the top 5% at a t30. Won't know exact rank for a few days.

Sounds like most people got the confirmation e-mail around 6pm EST. Is that accurate?

I feel like they've already given out all the acceptances they're willing to give out until they hear back from everyone by July 15th. Thoughts?

For those of you who went through this last year - arrow, for example - any info on how the acceptances were sent out? Was there a big batch in late june, followed by another big batch after the july 15th deadline? Or did they trickle out as they were reviewed?

This is a question that, if answered, should have it's own sticky, as I suspect it's one nearly universal among transfer applicants.
