I'm thinking December. Especially since snail mail is their only weapon of choice.

I got the email today, too. This is my third application to go under review, with only one offering me a decision already.

It was Super Bowl XXX vs the artist formerly known as the Dallas Cowboys. I was a sophomore in high school. Thanks for making me feel old Barbie, haha.

I have Mike Wallace, too. Solid pick up. I wasn't expecting such good numbers out of him.

FACT: Any discussion that takes place about Pittsburgh will eventually progress into a conversation about the Steelers and how awesome we are. I hope any outsiders who applied are ready for this. We are the town with the great football team.

In that case you'll do just fine. The women in Pittsburgh are as rabid as the men when it comes to sports. I can hardly wait to get back and check out the new arena. When can we expect these acceptance letters again???

Pro Tip: If you're coming to Pitt from out of state, wear a Pens or Steelers jersey in the first week. You'll fit right in.

Wear a Cowboys Jersey and expect certain death (then again that goes for most anywhere outside Dallas).

With each comment, Pitt is growing in my heart! I hope they feel the same.

Everyday in Kentucky I miss Pittsburgh sports more and more... I'm surrounded by Bengal's fans (I'm an hour south of Cincy) and there is NOOOO hockey.

It really is an amazing town. I was fortunate enough to get to see the Monday Night game on the Armed Forces Network a few days ago. By the end of the game as the Steelers fought to hold onto the victory I could feel my heart race and my hands were literally shaking. I had forgotten how much I cared. I love Pittsburgh.

Some people try to say "It's just sports/ It's only a game"... they obviously did not grow up in Pittsburgh and will never understand.. It always amazes me when I see the dedication to the city's team (such as monday night seeing literally about a quarter of Paul Brown Stadium filled with Steelers fans) and how much it brings different people together

I know a guy who actually has the guts to wear his Ravens jersey.

It is a special place. If you come to Pitt you will learn "its a 'Burgh thing". It feels like I'm writing copy for the admissions office. Oh and that guy who wears a Ravens jersey is nuts. The Browns are just pathetic at this point but the Ravens are public enemy #1.

You're not scared that you won't be able to find a job... graduating from Pitt?

Not since I can properly use "yinzer" in a sentence.

Nope. If you want to practice law in Pittsburgh then Pitt really is a great school. Obviously the degree doesn't have national mobility but that doesn't really matter to me. I have spent the last 4 years in the military away from my hometown and I can only speak for myself but I would be happy if I never had to leave Pittsburgh again. We are the City of Champions.

Well, I am one of the few it seems that did not get the under review email...although I was told when I went to visit that they are holding ED applications so it is likely that non ED'ers will get notifications before us ED applicants.

Anyways, I got an acceptance from Penn State today, so that was pretty good.
