Submitted mid January - complete around Feb 1....certainly late in the game, but folks who submitted at deadline have heard something by now.

How about you?

I didn't either, and I live in nyc....so it definitely wasn't sent last week, if it was sent at all.

Ugh, just painfully put down a deposit at BU too (which was expected considering I'm waitlisted everywhere)...

eee, that is painful... i guess it isn't that much $ in the scheme of 200K+ though, though it is a lot before those loans arrive.

i want to call to see wtf goin on, but i contacted them a couple weeks ago, so i don't want to upset them by bothering them in case they are still holding on to me for some reason...


wait. you haven't gotten any decision at all? No reserve or ding or accept? You should call doode. The deposit deadlines already passed....

Alright at least I know I'm dinged.....I finally broke and called and they told me something had been sent to me via U.S. mail on 4/25.

Not official of course, but there you have it....a ding that is lost in the mail REALLY hurts.

They are totally nice when you call, and given the circumstances I am sure they have your decision. I called a couple weeks back when I had a scholarship deadline and they were completely willing to give me a status update over the phone (not a decision, but an update about how that decision would reach me-- i.e. wait for the email).

Still haven't received the ding letter.... as a fun side note, the guy from admissions(very nice) said that it was sent registered mail.

I guess I must have been completely ignorant about what registered mail actually means, because it's the "ultra security" form of U.S. mail that can take 10-14 days to arrive. Meaning it's taking 2 weeks for a letter to get from Manhattan to Queens(where I live).

This is like something out of a sitcom...

I'm another one who hasn't heard a peep since I applied back in January. I emailed them today and was told a letter was sent to me at the beginning of March. They gave me the pdf copy today. It was a Reserve.

Goodness, sorry to hear that.

Although, unfortunately my delusional mind will interpret that as thinking that whatever is on its way to me is something other than a ding(which is very unlikely).

Maybe I'm just completely naive -- is it standard practice to send all correspondence as highly secured registered mail?

I would guess it's good news. Why would they waste their money on registered mail just to tell you no?

Haha, see I definitely think it's bad news....maybe I'm just pessimistic.

But I'm basing that on the fact that almost every acceptance/reserve(I consider reserve good news with my #s) that I've heard about on here has begun with someone receiving an email first...

I think the dude just made up the "registered mail" bit to make me stop rambling, giving him the opportunity to hang up the phone while I began to pause quizically....

Is there anyone on here that still hasn't heard back? I submitted in the first week of Jan.

Not that it matters at this point, I have paid my deposits and know where I am going...but it is a little shitty to just never have gotten a response.

Just called. According to them they emailed me the letter on March 27th, so I requested that they send it again. I am actually looking forward to seeing the rejection so I that my cycle will officially be over.

Just filled out the second reserve form. Not getting my hopes up, but it's something.
