last week somebody called and got the cold shoulder; but awhile back people called and actually got their decisions e-mailed to them afterwards.

i imagine at this point they are releasing decisions roughly when they make them, but then again they have been releasing so few that that doesn't make sense...

They are just taking their time to strategically admit applicants while careful not to screw up their yield. From what I've seen, most of the held applicants that have gotten admittances all had extremely high #s.

Haven't there been splitters, too? Those splitters don't necessarily have very high indices.

yea a significant percentage have had not all that high of indexes. also, now that they've seen the entire pool, i'm sure they could start rejecting and reserving many more of the holds than they have been. i dunno what's goin on...

I was under the impression that everyone who got the nod was relatively high. I think the lowest splitter I personal saw was a 3.6x/174.

3.9/171 (index would be a 4.4 rounded up)

It makes me a little sad, but at least that's one more I don't have to worry about! Not sure yet if I'll ride it out.

The only reason I hadn't withdrawn was pure curiosity.

Sorry to hear, guys. Looking at your stats made me a little discouraged. I will probably join you soon.

I think that was my hold date as well, which makes me think they might be going through this hold batch right now.
