:( Hopefully a wave of "decision pending" people will get accepted at some point soon. Someone should totally call and talk to an adcomm and ask if "decision pending" folks will hear back evarrrr

Well.. I spoke to the receptionist since I hadn't read your post. She wasn't mean, but the conversation was brief.. I asked her if there is a time scale for how long a decision would be "pending." She said no, "it's up to the committee." So.. yea..

Ok. Maybe I'll call back in a little bit and try that. Unless someone else wants to try in the meantime :mrgreen:

I finally went complete after a freakishly long delay due to my UG taking forever to send a missing document to UF :(

Submitted 10/20
Complete 11/18

Good luck everyone!

They are REALLY adamant about not letting you speak with an addcomm. Geeze.

They are really adamant about not letting you speak with anyone. I had an incredibly difficult time trying to get a question answered. After multiple times contacting the admissions office, I was transfered over to the registrars office. After contacting them, leaving voicemails, etc. my question was never answered. Major Bummer.

The receptionist was very polite and wanted to help. I imagine they are being bombarded with phone calls.

The receptionist acted very much like how our receptionist is directed to act at the law firm I work at: get them off the line as fast as possible, and DON'T under any circumstances let them talk to an attorney. The term I like to use is the "run-around." I'm just going to pretend they're making decisions faster when they don't have to talk to people who call, but in all actuality they're probably being just as productive.

Wow that was quick. I just changed from initial review to the decision pending after just three days. Kind of disappointed from what I'm reading here though about it meaning that it takes longer to find out. Thought I had a shot avoiding the waiting game being above both medians, but I guess you have to be above both 75%s from what I'm reading. Oh well. We'll all make it...hopefully.

I had a super quick turn around time too. It surprised me.

:)

as you've had a quick turnaround, i'd assume you're numbers are probably also good enough for a scholly. hopefully we'll find out in soon!
