No offense, but you may want to take your 9 identical posts about this to the social lounge...


I bet whiteswan is actually an undercover tv exec plotting to distract us :twisted:

Has anyone who went complete on or after 1/25 received a response? Thoughts on the utility of giving the admissions office a call to see where things are?

Pointless. Even people who submitted forever ago and called in about their apps didn't get anything more than that decisions will be rolling out through the end of April.

Additionally, it appears that only through walking in the door and signing in is your name recorded. When I visited, I watched the individual at the front desk mark down the number of people calling, but not take down any identifying information.

That's actually good news if anyone has called multiple times. Although I hope they're realizing how much those tallies are adding up.

I know many have been waiting for a while but I just went complete so please excuse the uninformed question.... What is the next stage? I know it says that decisions come through mail but does the status change to "decision" or do you check your mailbox everyday like your parents did :) ?

Haha I <3 you texas! I'm at 137 myself.

@BrightLine - no status checker change. And acceptances, WL, and holds have been coming by email now. Dings are still snail mail to the best of my knowledge.

One day a vomit-colored envelope magically appears in your box :)

No more status changes after complete.

Seems like it.

Guess I won't need to run to my mailbox daily to check for a VCE or a ding-a-ling. Though actually, it still seems like rejections are coming via snail mail, so maybe I should still check daily. :shock:

Apparently. The top of the PDF I received in my e-mail says BY E-MAIL ONLY.

Around 14 Feb, they started releasing email acceptances...I think a bunch of us called in that day, as well as a bunch of other angry people, most likely.

There were strict-VCE people as late as 15 Feb postmark, but I think everybody afterward has gotten an email.


Most of the emails have come through during normal business hours, but we have at least one report of a Saturday evening email...
