Site does say to allow up to two weeks. I'd give it a few more days before really worrying, though, especially if it says it has all your materials.

Sigh, it's been about a month now since I went complete. This is gonna be a long wait indeed. I just hope it comes out before the holidays; it's gonna be brutal if I have to wait until Jan to know.

That's actually not very long at all. I submitted in Spetember and it took 34 days to go from "Completion Pending" to "Complete." You can ask but you shouldn't worry about it. They have a lot of apps to put together, and you only submitted about 2 weeks ago.

I'd rather wait till January then get a rejection letter on Christmas mornings.

Then again...I'll probably have to wait until April to be waitlisted. So maybe best to get it over with.

:shock: They process EDs so much faster. I guess it makes sense? I submitted 11/1, completion pending 11/2 (meaning they acknowledged I had everything but waiting on contract), and that updated to completion on 11/8

Same here, submitted very early 11/2, completion pending 11/2, dropped off my ED contract in person when I went to go visit 11/5 and completed 11/8. From what I see from CCN on lsn, it seems EDs do in fact complete faster and get decisions faster.

Well they do say that they want to give decisions to ED people before RD people, so it makes sense.

True, I was just contrasting that to schools like Michigan UVA and Georgetown, who instead will give out some regular decisions before looking at the ED pool as a whole.

Yeah. I think it's nice to hear back earlier if you're ED. Then you can just know for sure and have more time to send out other apps if you have to, versus just waiting...

Got home yesterday to a thin envelope from Columbia. I thought for sure it was a ding, but it turned out to be from Columbia Law Women's Association. They hope to see me at Columbia next year. So do I.

Everyone seems to say it takes awhile to go complete but I've been "completion pending" for almost a month... ?! Thoughts?
