Does your status checker still just say completed?

Yes. It said complete the other day without the two forms checked. Those are now checked but the status is still just "complete".

FYI to confirm, the status never goes beyond completed.

Hmm - this isn't the wave that I was expecting. Seems to just be trickling so far.

Also, if you don't mind, when did the email come? Just trying to figure out if they've been trickling out or were done in a batch.

And congrats!

No CLS email for me so far :(

Seems like only a few scattered acceptances. I wonder if it WAS a big batch and a lot of the acceptees just don't post on TLS, or maybe it's a staggered release of decisions

At least we havent heard of any dings yet.

Man, Friday the 13th would forever be a great omen to me if I heard food news from CLS :)

Also, if I heard good news--that would be great too.

I'm typing on my phone and it was auto-corrected, so cut me some slack haha.

What was that, like 3-4 CLS acceptances we've heard of on TLS? Not exactly earth-shattering

Yeah, unlikely it was a large batch then.

:P I interpreted it to mean CLS = food on the table.

To those admitted, when did you go Complete? It seems like maybe they are going by that date. Just curious.

FYI, for those about to freak out, 2 years ago (I don't know about last year) CLS sent out one wave of acceptances shortly before the weekend and then another around Tuesday (more after that too, but I don't remember details).

I called them earlier, and asked when decisions would start comming...she said "very very soon"...I then asked if they would be in staggered waves...she said "no, we have a rolling process"...I don't know if the evidence says otherwise, but take it for whatever it's worth.

I love that you take the bullet and demand answers from all of the AdComms. Keep the information flowing

Rolling sounds better than staggered waves, I think.

Submitted my stuff like 6/21, but went "complete" at CLS like 7/5-7/6, so I'm sure there's many ppl in line ahead of me

Praying, I'm with you on the timeline. I suppose that going through apps in the order they became complete is fair and makes a lot of sense. But I'm losing my mind over here.

I didn't go complete until just a few days ago because they sat on my app for over 2 weeks. Maybe I'll hear next year some time? :P

Hmm-- I went back in old posts and Grok only went complete on 7/11, same day as me. That shoots our theory all to hell.

I've still got "completion pending." Everything's checked - according to the site, that either means they're putting the file together or they're missing my Dean's Cert. from undergrad. Do you think I need to give them a call? Everyone else got my Dean's Cert. without problems.
