Mine says your application is complete at the top in red (as before) but the current status still says my application has been submitted for review on X date. I've lost all hope at this point though, especially after getting dinged at HLS and YLS . Not too upset about them because SLS was really the only place I wanted to go, but not very optimistic right now. No ties to CA but would relocate in a heartbeat if they were so kind as to accept me.

*sigh*

How long do admits have to decide?

Dinged by mail. Says decision letter was sent at the top of my status checker. All know what that means.

Dinged via email. "A decision letter has been sent."
Annoyed for having to wait this long.

Have you received the letter though? I'm reluctant to believe that "a decision letter has been sent" is an automatic rejection. Maybe admissions are being sent by mail too since some denials also appear to be going through email?

I'm sure you don't want dwell on it too much, but did they send you an email telling you a decision letter has been sent? That seems kind of weird.

I have not, but if I was accepted, they would have done it by phone/e-mail. Wasn't expecting an acceptance honestly. Lower T1, Top 2%

My status still says it's been submitted for review. I called yesterday morning and they said to call them back in the afternoon, suggesting that they might be able to give me an answer by then, but I called several times with no answer.

Anybody thinking there's at all a chance they might send out decisions today? Have schools been known to do that on a weekend?

I withdrew yesterday (status didn't say decision rendered - just submitted for review). SLS needs to stop playing.

Any news?? Mine still says "application complete." Left a message over the weekend (not really expecting a call back, of course)...

I'm done waiting on S and will be matriculating at H. Stanford's admissions office is a joke.

Best of luck to all of you still waiting!

Same. I'm guessing they are trying to decide on a couple more and that's it.

Nope. I think we should call or email them. This is about as far as I can wait. Even if we get in now, there would be no time for OCI preparation at the new school.

I emailed last Friday and they specifically told me my file is still under review and they would "hopefully" render a decision early this week. But since it's already Tuesday, so I wonder how early that can be... :roll:

Congrats!

With some movement happening, it would appear those of us still holding at 'review' are on a shadow waitlist?
