If you got questions shoot. Last year they emailed the acceptances the Friday before memorial day.

And the contingent performance requirement is meaningless.

I take it that pre-Memorial Day e-mail was for ED? Any ideas on when regular decisions went out?

What are everyone's stats? I'm male, non-URM, not much work experience, 3.9 at mid T2. How much do we think softs matter?

How long does it take to go from incomplete to complete? I'm paranoid that my school hasn't sent them the certification form or whatever.

Do you think they take into account how far in the 1 month window (apr 15-may15) you send in your app? Aka, do you think someone that sends in the app ON Apr 15 is advantaged, and a person sending it in say, today, is disadvantaged? Or for this process maybe that doesnt matter and they just start reviewing them all in one batch come May 15?

I went complete on the 26th or so and went under review yesterday. I am pretty sure they make the decisions all at once and you're probably not disadvantaged at all applyin anywhere in the window. There aren't a whole lot of people that apply for a transfer and within that many fewer doing it ED. So I assume you aren't at one.

I was complete on April 30 (I think?), UR as of yesterday. I think the poster above me is right; they must review us all at the same time.
