A 2/11 postmark would most likely get to me today, but after weeks of suspecting something based on postmarks I'm not getting my hopes up anymore.

Also Non-Chalant did you literally just call and ask if anything had been mailed and when?

I called and the person I spoke to didn't seem agitated by it. I was told that "a decision is supposed to be made soon" or something along those lines. If you're forgotten, maybe it's not the worst thing in the world to call. They probably won't mark it against you. I anticipate, like law monkey said earlier, that we should all know within a couple of weeks.

Yeah but what did you ask? I don't know why, but I would feel weird just being like, "Hello. I was just wondering if you've mailed anything to me recently?"

Just a simple call inquiring about the status of your application would probably be the best way to go if you want to attempt it.

Yeah I'm too chicken. I'm just going to accept other people's responses as what they would likely tell me and hope to hear by the end of next week. :(

In a very simple and respectful tone, I called and said "I know the admissions office will not release the status of my application over the phone, but I have been having some problems with my mail lately. I wanted to know if you could tell me whether I have been mailed anything."

The woman on the phone politely said she would check, asked for my LSAC number or ss#, and told me I had not.

I said thank you, and that was it. (nothing about when I can expect to hear etc.)

Hope that helps, if you want to call im sure no harm will come of it

Another member of the forgotten club here, I just called too and the woman was really nice.

Too bad a decision has not been reached on my application even though I went complete in September :shock:

Fresh, on the phone did they tell you that a decision was imminent or did they tell you that a decision had not been reached and that they would continue making decisions on a rolling basis throughout April?

I am curious because I was told the later.

lol thanks everyone!
The person I spoke to said that they would be making a decision soon and to hang on. I'm going to say that my call had a impact, considering they emailed me a decision instead of making me wait for mail. again, i'm not international so that seems atypical. so happy about this

I never, ever post here, but probably check this thread as obsessively as anyone else. I just got an Admitted Students Handbook in Santa Cruz, though I never got a VCE. Shocked the hell out of me when I opened my mailbox. I went complete sometime around 1/20.

definitely call and confirm you're admittance. there's probably a mail problem!
