Yeah. I thought I did too, but the pent up resentment I have for not hearing anything is making me confused. Well regardless, congratulations on NYU! It's a great acheivement.

So, if decisions come out today, is that probably the last big wave of ED admits?

Please let me be in that 40%, Admissions Gods.

If anything is going to happen today, it'll have to be real soon, i.e. next 50 minutes.

Actually, after thinking about it a bit, by LSN data, 60% of admits would have gone out for December. But a large, large chunk of people (about 17% of admits) don't list decision dates on their LSN. This probably overlaps with the fraction of the population that doesn't list ED as their application type.

Based on this, I think as more realistic estimate of the admits that have gone out already is about 45%. There's plenty of admits left. That doesn't even include people that get deferred and admitted or people who, for some reason, found out they were admitted in early January. If you include those, the estimate drops down to about 35% of admits have gone out.

That means there are conceivably 65% of ED admissions left, so don't worry.

I'd love for that 65 to drop down to like 35 in the next hour, b/c they just finished sending us TLSers our acceptances :mrgreen:

One can dream... I think sending out a batch of acceptances would be an amazing way to end the work week. *cough* Do you hear that, CLS Admissions Office?

+1 just got my purple envelope from NYU yet the excitement is all but completely overshadowed by CLS' reluctance to make a decision on my ED app.

I don't know -- part of me is contemplating anonymously calling the admissions office and asking if no word yet equals rejection. I'm sure they'd easily dismiss that myth, but I'm hoping that they would then divulge more info like "stay patient, it's coming real soon". I just called yesterday for a matter in which I had to disclose who I was. I don't want the same lady to recognize my voice lol

+1 I'm into school that I'm happy with but being uncertain whether my cycle will be over any day now or if I'm going to be flying out to ASW's and negotiating scholarships is bringing anxiety.

If someone does it today, I'd love them forever. Otherwise, I will do this next week, once I'm confident the lady won't recognize my voice.

I would take any email from them right now. I wish I were still in school so they could ask me for my grades. I just want to know I am on their radar.

Oh okay, fair enough..good thing they don't tease you by having some ambiguous subject. I probably would've still freaked out.

Dear Columbia, please email me! You can just email me to tell me I suck. Just let me know how you feel!
