Haha - I had that thought too. Mine also still says complete on the checker. But we should really stop thinking about it. I bought myself a nice celebratory bottle of whiskey. I would hate to have to turn it into a gloomy bottle of whiskey.


Celebratory bottle of whiskey sounds like a fantastic idea :) no rescind email yet so I think we're in the clear

Actually I went AC on 6/27 and was application incomplete on 6/26. This was because my transcripts were not there yet.

They didn't start reviewing until 7/1. So it doesn't matter how long ago it went complete.

Just incase anyone was curious, we will all know of our decision by next Monday, July 16. I called the admissions office to ask. Anyone get any news today?

Has anybody been dinged yet? Or, has anybody gotten in that wasn't an auto-admit? Just curious!

We probably get rejected as a batch.... which makes me sad.

Well looking at their twitter feed, it doesn't look like we'll hear anything today. Makes me sad, too.

That isn't necessarily true. They sent out decisions last Friday with no Twitter update. I have hope.

Does anyone know if the status checker actually changed to "Under Review" for transfer students? Mine has been at Application Complete since July 3rd.
