Good luck everyone! Also remember that last year's timeline might not be a perfect predictor of this year's. A lot of schools seem to be doing things a little differently this cycle.

Yeah, Duke seems to be a little off this year. Of course, last year was also their first year with an ED option, so I don't have much data to work with.

Edit: But that doesn't mean I'm not nervous as all hell. I just got waitlisted at Illinois today. Ugh.

Do you think I will get anything but a WL? Again?

You're at/above median, have strong ties to the school, are a current graduate student, and have outstanding softs. You'll get in, and I doubt you'll be paying sticker either. :D

If you're waitlisted at any school under CCN, it is almost definitely YP. Just send in that LOCI and I'm sure you'll be good to go.

You're lucky you have an interview with the dean and are not stuck in limbo right now having heard nothing back like some of us, cough cough, me. There's still a chance they could be doing some calls today though, no? Didn't someone say last year they called someone on Friday at 5:00 p.m.? Anyway, I plan to lose all hope after 5.

Well I submitted my application on 10/10, whereas you said you submitted and went UCR only very recently.

Yours may be just delayed and under review now.
Exactly why Penn states that they will be calling ED admits until Dec. 22nd.

Don't lose your hope....

Yeah lol that was me. Clearly my outlook on the situation is rapidly oscillating like a fat kid doing the worm at a bar mitzvah.

Haha. Have you not heard back yet either? It's hard to keep track of the stragglers... Also wondering where socio is since we went UCR around the same time. Thanks for the vote of confidence loptimist and that comment wasn't meant to be spiteful... I am happy for you that you are moving on to the next step. Being on Step 0 allows you to be optimistic. Sorry about your car accident too! I have the worst luck, that sounds like something that would happen to me. I'm glad you're okay.

HAHAH. Thanks for making me LOL hard during this most stressful time. 0 calls so far I'm assuming. I hope they don't leave it until next week... Or send us WLs and rejections after their office closes ;(.

Thanks guys!! I got the call while at work and came back in like shaking... I felt like even my brain was trembling. I also picked up on like the second ring so the guy that called must have thought I was super creepy.. like... "Hello, UPenn? Is that you? I've been waiting for your call for three days... I haven't showered or gone to the bathroom... just been waiting by the phone... Is it really you?!"
