Bump. Come on guys, decisions come out tomorrow and still no love! I wish ALL of us were hearing tomorrow but I doubt I will... :(. There will still be a glimmer of hope until it turns like 5:00.

so just to clarify, if I don't get a call tomorrow, that's not necessarily a reason to go into depression mode, right? I mean we still have the 9th and 10th as likely dates?

a batch of rejections went out via status checker the evening of the first day of ED acceptances last year, so its possible

any idea how they decide who to call first? strongest applicants first?

and can we expect calls for 2 days? 3 days?

Probably depends when every one else starts getting the calls. If people on here start getting the calls tomorrow, and I don't hear from Penn by Friday, I'll probably begin drinking myself into oblivion. However, if no one is getting calls tomorrow obviously there is no reason to panic.

The time passing after someone gets the first ED call and posts here will be a cruel, painful, seemingly endless wait...

That happened to me at Berkeley. They called people for 2 days, and I didn't receive one. Then it was Thanksgiving, Black Friday, then the weekend. Finally I got a call on Monday.

I believe calls came from Penn in the following week too, with the RD folks in the 2nd week. Since I am RD, I won't be expecting anything this week, so I will simply be rooting for you folks!

So, is that tweet the only reason why people believe decisions come out tomorrow?

And the fact that last year it came out on the send Wed. of December.

It's hard to imagine a law school arbitrarily picked a wed. to issue a statement that no decision will be announced before that date.

Maybe they're testing our ability to pick up on implicit assumptions. I hope I pass!
