These one per day acceptances are going to give me a heart attack. When do we give up?

(Congrats, tho!! :) )

Really? I mean I reread the letter and it doesn't seem binding...are all the rumors about it being a cut-throat bloodsucking place true?

Everyone gets a job. I'm happy with the V50-100 and don't need the V10. So I'm not worried about the bloodsucking, whether or not it exists!

CLS is probably more chill than NYU.

Same...I'm very quickly losing hope. Last year, it looks like rejections came via snail mail in early August.

seriously. This is pretty crappy. Anyone have any plausible predictions about what's going on? Any more acceptances coming?

CLS appears to be doing rolling instead of waiting until they have 30 and releasing them at once. As of Thursday, they had only accepted 17 people.

Thanks for the heads up, Nebby. These rolling admissions are killing me. But I guess I have to be patient since I didn't go complete until the first week of July.

30? Their 2014 509 report showed they took 46 transfers last year. So they do rolling admission for the other 16?

30 was a random number I chose; it has no significance. What I meant was that CLS appears to be doing rolling admissions versus admissions in waves.

Nebby, is the 17 people accepted figure "official" or based on the number on the transfer facebook page? Just curious.

Neither. Based off of what admissions told us (I'm a transfer mentor).

Thank you Nebby.
Two follow ups.
1. To get to their 46ish transfers, how many do they accept?
2. Does having not been accepted/rejected since going complete in late June mean anything?

My fiance and friends are dying to know if I got in because otherwise it looks like I'll be moving moving across the country. I'm not sure if I can wait too much longer. Is there any sense in callin/emailing to ask for an expedited answer. I'm sure plenty of people are in similar situations but I figured I'd ask. Thanks Nebby.

Nebby, you've revived my hopes with this news. Guess I'll keep stress-checking my e-mail all week.

I'll be doing the same thing. :lol:

Hopefully, for my sanity's sake, I get accepted sooner than later.
