What does it mean to still be complete

Postby Matteliszt » Fri Apr 02, 2010 7:54 pm

I have still not heard from 6 schools. I know this is not uncommon and I am not complaining. I am curious if anyone else is not even "under review" at schools as well. Is it worth calling when you are just complete?

I'm not under review at a number of places. I am not calling.

Alabama still has me at "incomplete items outstanding" since 1st week in Feb, no movement since.

Depend on the status checker. I have gone from Complete to Decision Rendered directly (@ VUA). I have gone Complete to UR to Decision Rendered in 2-3 days (@ Penn and Gtown). Schools have it differently. You can always call and ask about not going under review but they will probably tell you either they don't change the checker, or you are still in waiting. Either situation requires you to be patient. :|

I think the explanation for Alabama is that they don't update a file to complete until it's actually sitting in front of someone who is reviewing the file......For Penn, wow on you going from complete to DR in 3 days, I've been complete since 3/10 on their status checker and nothing.

Don't be jealous, I got waitlisted at Penn. So maybe they really didn't want me that's why so quick (3/15 - 3/18) :lol: UVA and Gtown just as quick but later (WL). Michigan took 2 weeks and it was acceptance so they actually "considered" and "reviewed".

I went from complete-->reject in a week at Upenn so they wern't too bad. I feel like my files are just hanging out somewhere and will eventually be reviewed. ALL of the schools are reaches so I am not really too worried about it.

I went complete at Penn on 3/2 and UR on 3/31, so you'll probably go to UR next week as that will be when they get to apps that went complete 3/10.

I have been app received at Chicago since 1963. I believe a torts professor's canary is enjoying having it on the bottom of his cage.

I hope so, whatever their decision is I need to know so I can move on. ........Is there anyone else waiting on Duke? Their status checker has me at "File ready for review" since 2/12, nothing since! I'm tired.

I think it means what it meant a month ago. But seriously, these schools know the deadlines of their neighboring schools, and they need to get their damn acts together.

At this point, it probably doesn't matter to me since chances are I will get no money if admitted. However I paid to have it reviewed so I will wait it out. I like acceptance packets :D so I will take more if I can.
