Here's why you shouldn't worry: I found out I was admitted in the second "wave," but the date on my acceptance letter was November 30, which was the first wave. I think what happened is that there's only been one round of acceptances so far but since someone has to sit there and attach a pdf to an email and send it to us, all the emails aren't going out at the same time the decisions are issued.

I think the second wave will happen next week, and I'm pretty sure you'll be in it.

EDIT: fixed grammar issues


That was just about the greatest response I could've asked for. Thank you very much for the confidence boost and for the hope. The part about your letter being dated 11/30 is very encouraging. Thank you :D

BTW, I just checked with polyester and his her letter was also dated 11/30. 8) *sigh*

Edit: fixed poly's gender.

Ahh that is a heck of a relief. My discouraged panic can now return to an optimistic anxiety. Thanks!

+1 No offense to JoeSchmoe or Shane, but Vertex is officially my favorite poster in this thread. He/she has been incredibly light-hearted and encouraging as an admit to a school we would easily drop a quarter million to go to (addressing the ED crowd), as opposed to a certain Georgetown 0L troll who has been terrorizing unrelated threads.

letter dated november 30th. didn't even notice it ha. apparently i've been in for over a week. wish i could have saved a week of worrying and gone straight to relaxation. i have such middle range numbers. you'd think it would have taken them longer to decide. got in on softs?

Thanks! So it seems Vertex was right. There has only been one round of acceptances (based on 3 admits). Of course that's very limited info, but it still makes me feel better :P

Edit: congrats btw!!

You aren't living up to your username, don't give up hope yet! The most common time to hear a decision seems to be 4-430PM. I usually give up hope on a day around 5PM.

Any predictions on when the first batch of snail mail will hit mailboxes? Have the people who heard back in PDF form also received a letter?

Haven't heard of a single person receiving a snail mail response.

Did last year's applicants document that timeline at all--email-to-mailbox response time?

Here's the old thread if you're feeling brave-- viewtopic.php?f=20&t=48833. If sure through that thread you could find out when snail mail decisions got out to people.

EDIT: Let me know if you do find out when they were received!
