Received an interview request this morning (splitter), taking it as a good sign. What did everyone else wear? I'm assuming I won't hear back from the alum for a while as its the holidays.

Generally I think:

law firm --> suit
coffee shop/casual setting --> business casual


Agreed.

I wore a suit but no tie as I was meeting my interviewer at a coffee shop and it was late on a weekday. I also got the vibe that my interviewer was laid back from our phone calls and email correspondence.

That being said, if you are worried at all I say go formal as if you were going for a job interview. These people have done it many times before, my interviewer had been doing it for 5 years, and won't care if you are overdressed.

Could anyone tell me how decisions are given? Is it updated on the status checker as accepted, or are decisions only mailed? Would the checker just say "decision mailed," rather than what the decision is?

Thanks. I'm getting a little antsy here and I will be away for the holidays so I won't be receiving mail for a few weeks.

I can't say about the status checker, because I never looked at it. My acceptance came in the mail and I have received numerous follow-ups via e-mail and postal mail. HTH.

Status checker never says anything other than complete. Read through some of the earlier pages, this is addressed every 20 or so posts.

Got my nice letter :D Oddly, it doesn't seem to have been sent to my current address, but my permanent one, meaning it never triggered my mail forwarding for the holidays. No complaints! (It arrived in NY). By far my favorite letter to date.

I know that we shouldn't ask "What does this mean" questions, but I applied as both. I didn't notice, but my update yesterday (12/16) made my application go to "Full-Time."

So, what does this mean?

Based on what I have gathered throughout this thread, this seems to be a good sign. It probably means your numbers are strong enough to admit you into the Full-Time program and they don't need to consider you for the Part-Time. Although, switching to Part-Time is not necessarily a bad thing, people have gotten accepted when it switched to Part-Time. However, I think it just means they have put you in the Full-Time group, which has to be a positive sign due to the higher difficulty of getting into the Full-Time program.

I know others have gotten accepted the same day that happened though... I can't get a password for the admitted students website. :|

I doubt they would classify you into the more selective program and then reject you. That doesn't make logical sense to me. I definitely understand your anxiety, though. Are your numbers competitive for Full-Time?

My file also changed to Full-time as of 12/15. So from what I gather I should be expecting a letter in the mail soon. Only says complete. So it doesn't change to under review either? I ask because in past years I see that it changed to under review. Any insights on this would be greatly appreciated. So very excited. Come on mail! =D

I would think you'd be in for Full-Time. You aren't auto-admit, but you are still a very strong applicant. I think you're in good shape.

I appreciate that I wasn't rejected outright especially being an extreme splitter but patients has never been my strong point. Would love to hear from anyone who is in a similar boat. Congrats to those who got in and know, and for those who did but are not going to accept it, please let them know :) free up another boat space.


Mine updated a day or two after I got the email saying I was rolled to RD (but it didn't update on the day of the email- weird) Also, one of my recommenders got an email today saying thanks for sending in a letter....did anyone else get this? What was your admissions outcome if you did???

Have we found out what letters to recommenders mean? Does a lack of the "good news is coming" mean anything?

I've only read bits and pieces of this thread, but I'd be interested in hearing any thoughts. I interviewed two weeks ago and there has been no change of status for me ever since 11/16. I applied on 10/30. Is that a bad sign? Also, today one of my recommenders got one of those generic emails saying thank you for your feedback. I guess that means nothing?

How many of yall were ED? Is there a consensus agreement that GULC is sticking with their 3-week ED timeline?
