I'm new here. I'm sure this was asked before. My status check says "your file is under review". Is there another status after this (i.e. committee review)?

Yes, if you get moved to CR, the header and thing will change.

You'll hear something soon. I was like that 3 weeks ago. but it seems like every few days I get another decision now. Once it starts rolling it really picks up.

+1. i checked obsessively for weeks with nothing, then got into three schools in three days followed by scholarship offers. that said, i'm back in a slump of checking every day and hearing nothing. why did i apply to so many?!

Have you guys heard about this: --LinkRemoved-- ?

I didn't know Edley was the one spearheading the movement for the higher pensions fiasco. It's an interesting battle with both sides having extremely valid points.

Also, I found a great student-run blog called "Nuts and Boalts" http://boaltalk.blogspot.com/

Best of luck to everyone in CR.

Same. Guess they knew there was no way I was paying sticker there. Guess I'll have to "settle" for CCN/MVP.

They could have a round of dings today and a round of accepts tomorrow and set up for all the CR decisions next week?
