The committee is obviously doing this in waves.

1. Last Wed. they rejected the people well below their index threshold
2. On Thurs. they held people that were borderline
3. Fri. they "made a decision" (i.e. status date changes) on the presumptive admits
4. This morning they released those initial decisions.
5. They are currently reviewing people in the middle.

If your date hasn't changed, it just means that they have yet to even look at your file. When it changes, it means that they have made a decision and entered it into the system....they then release them all at the same time....like this morning, everyone's status changed to admitted simultaneously.

Yup, exactly what I was thinking, too.


I'm pulling for yall!

For anybody wondering about the part-time program, I called and they said that they are still in the process of making decisions for RD PT people. Also, I asked the medians for part-time and she said 162/3.75.. which is different than this link.

I'm not really sure what to make of it lol

I was kind of hoping someone else would and report back. I'm ashamed of myself.

I was hoping for a phone call. Any school who notifies by phone has so far rejected me.

Just a quick note fyi:

A lot of people are going to wear red, white, and black tomorrow to show support for the Egyptian people. The US State Dept. has supported the Mubarak regime for decades and American tax dollars are paying for the weapons being used against everyday Egyptians. I know that the concern is that a new extreme dictator may not be any better than what they have now...and that is pretty scary. (For now it seems the Muslim Brotherhood is backing El Baradei (a moderate))....but regardless of the outcome, I think these people deserve our support and to be honored for their courage.

I will have to watch the Factor tonight and see who Bill-O supports before taking a stand one way or another

Still no change on mine from November date. I applied to both FT/PT...I called the school and they said they still haven't finished updating a few people and to continue checking the status checker today and early tomorrow. Said if I didn't see a change by then to call back...

Hope that helps anyone else in the same boat...

Haven't changed since 12/14. I should've just ponied up the money instead of waiting around for the fee waiver.
