This process really makes me appreciate other admissions offices that are super transparent. (Looking at you, Dean Z)

I waited 4-5 days at the least for all my other acceptances, so I am not the least bit surprised (considering several of my Sept. apps are still pending). I think it would have been painless if not for the TLS-induced anticipation.

Haha agreed. But there are way too many people with great numbers who haven't heard anything yet, so I'm far from freaking out here.

I still don't get it - what is a GULC packet? What does that stand for?

FWIW, New York mail is really screwed up (I know that's not really news). I finally got the purple envelope today in Chicago that supposedly went out on 1/21. It was postmarked twice: 71 cents on 1/22 and 0 cents on 1/24. So whatever that means...

GULC is Georgetown University Law Center.

I think the NYU thing (mine was the same) is because they sent it out from the admissions office on the 21st, such that it arrived at the university mailroom in time to be stamped and postage-paid on the 22nd, but wasn't actually transmitted to USPS until the next working day, which was the 24th, when it was dated again. So that's the "real" mailing date.

People know it was sent on a certain date, and are using it to gauge mail delivery times.

everything. Recent Gtown packets were apparently postmarked 1/24 and 1/25, the same postmark dates as Columbia's acceptance letters. It's being used as a benchmark for hope.

It was presumably sent out on 01/25. The Columbia acceptances were sent out on 01/24. If you haven't received the GULC packet, perhaps it indicates that mail is taking longer to reach you, rather than say, Columbia not mailing you an acceptance packet. If you have received a GULC packet, then perhaps your mail is working fine, and if Columbia had mailed you an acceptance, you should have gotten it by now, possibly indicating that you are not going to be receiving an acceptance package.

I... see. You all kept chirping on about GULC, and ruled out Georgetown, but then I couldn't figure out what you'd be talking about.

If you're trying to figure out when you're going to get stuff from Columbia based on when you get stuff from Georgetown... you all need to chill out. I recommend a brandy alexander:

Finally a text reply from my mother (about the appearance of a VCE in today's mail):

No, just Cornell. Which frankly most people would give their eye teeth for.

Thanks mom, way to keep me humble. Jeez.

Haha, my parents have funny responses. Whenever I tell them I got into an east coast school they say some variation of "it's cold as shit out there." And when I got NYU my dad said "that's a good school...except for all the new yorkers" :lol:.

Did dulcatis fall off the face of the earth? I thought she was checking her mailbox like, hours ago. She is supposed to be keeping my hope alive.
