I'm probably over-optimistic here, but it looks like in past years rejects and WL's were sent via email and it doesn't sound like anyone bumped to today's date received either. Also, I can't tell for sure, but didn't some folks in this cycle who were EA deferred get accepted after applying to Both and not see their status change to FT or PT?

I believe you are correct. Last year there was the change from FT/PT to just one, but not this year during EA.

I believe there will be some acceptances at a minimum.

i sent the admissions people some updated materials over the past few days, and i changed to Application Complete today. Before I checked TLS, I called GULC to see if the status change was just a reflection of my new materials being added. I asked the lady if this status change meant that a decision had been made, and she checked my file and said that it just meant that it was currently under review. I didnt call expecting to get a decision over the phone, but it seemed like they just havent made one yet. Im not really sure what all this means though.

Doesn't it mean what she said? Your file is under review? No decision yet made?

Here's my general rule of thumb that makes sense to me:

There are not a lot of applicants during the transfer cycle and these adcoms can make decisions VERY quickly since it's nearly all a numbers game. They've done their homework and know how much weight they assign to each school you're coming from. If they want you, they're going to accept you very quickly once your file is complete. If they don't they will string you along to see if they need someone to fill a space that someone else didn't take...

They know how quickly this is all moving and they're on their A-game. They will let the people they want know asap.

Ding, 5% at T2. At least the letter was straightforward and didn't try to sugar coat the denial.

Rejected. I would not have attended anyway because I've been admitted elsewhere.

Look to be stock, with your name attached. I received mine at 2:44 CST.

Just glad I am already in at WUSTL. Sad but not crushed.

Stats should have been enough to get in. I don't want to say the other school but it's better than GULC.

Good luck to those waitlisted. I know two people that withdrew from GULC recently.

Seriously? They have waitlists for transfers? What they want us to do? Transfer after OCI? Thanks but no thanks

So it seems like going complete with today's date meant rejection or WL. What do you think staying complete with a previous date means? Possible admit, or they just didn't get to you yet? Also, I am kind of surprised to see top 2-3% and top 5% at T2s being flat rejected... kind of worrisome.

Maybe YP - GULC might think these peeps won't want to commit by Friday.

There is no YP for transfer. They don't report transfer yield.

Just because they don't report it does not mean the principle does not stand. Obviously they are wanting to force people to commit at an early click. Why accept someone they don't think will attend?

You're overanalyzing the transfer process. Regardless, my WL is a de facto rejection. Transferring after the OCI deadlines makes no sense whatsoever.

I can think of 800 reasons, if those people haven't been accepted elsewhere yet, but are likely to be.
