No mail in LA. We will just have to wait and see.

Aw thanks habit! <3 Don't count yourself our yet! There are way too many holds for them to not give out more VCEs.

VCE in AR! Went complete on 9/20. Envelope postmarked 2/2. Didn't receive a hold/reserve e-mail. Fall grades requested on 12/2.

Given that I can't expect much in the way of merit aid and that interview invites may have already gone out for the NYC program my fiancée applied to, it's extremely unlikely that I'll attend CLS. I'll withdraw as soon as I know for sure that it's no longer an option for me.

Huge Congrats!!!

PS

uh oh...I was using the certainity of you receiving a VCE to comfort myself that I hadn't heard a thing yet...there goes my security blanket

should we create a thread for the forgotten at CLS (complete before xmas - no vce, no hold, no reserve, no ding) so we can track new waves of decisions more easily?

Well, that kills that theory. I feel like there must be some order involving index number, name, submit date, current address state, astrological sign, and/or blood type, but maybe there isn't.

Congrats guys! Based on what I've noticed, mail from NY arrives around these parts one or two days after LA recipients. I hope there's good news waiting for me on Monday.

there was one. he was lost in the chaos. lol most likely early Jan were just auto-admits. If you applied late December early Jan, I'd seriously not take a no-news to mean everything.


I got a 1/28 VCE after going complete on 1/18, I wouldn't necessarily say I had auto-asmit numbers. They were good (4.415 index), but I was also a splitter 177/3.5. Take that as you will

Yeah also keep in mind that mail was probably super screwed up by weather... Not only was weather in NYC worse last week than the week before, but weather all over the country was significantly worse
