Allegedly not, but the earlier you're offered admission the better the odds, since the funds get depleted.

is your status ever "under review" or does it just go from "complete" to "decision made?"

I don't think it ever goes to "under review" or "Decision made". I'm pretty sure on under review, and if it ever goes to decision made it is long after you have already received your letter/asw access.

Cool. Thanks. What else can you do other than send in a LOCI at this point other than praying to La Virgen? Is it appropriate to ask questions about their decision so you can address their concerns?

Just looking for a clarification re: ASW. I know generating a password means acceptance, but what is the time frame? The Monday after a status update (for me 2/11), an interminable number of days later after 5PM? There seem to be a plethora of answers and am just curious if I should be looking every day this week, waiting for next Monday, or dreading my email.

Thanks all.

I too interviewed recently (alumni), so as a follow up question: for those who have had an alumni interview, how long after the interview did you hear about a decision? To be even more precise, if you happen to know, how long after the interviewer submitted their review?

Much appreciated.

Casterfield- alumni or group?

Alumni. How do you know when your interviewer submitted his/her review? When did you interview?

Actually, I have NOT been able to generate a password OR received an email. 2/11 was my 4th update...just wondering if I should even bother obsessing until next Monday or not.

I know someone earlier in this thread said they though the earliest a 2/11 could generate was today...but not sure why they thought that.

Thanks for the quick response...hopefully the congrats is just a little too early :)

Perch:

It took over a month for my status checker to update after the alum interview and another week or so before I was able to log into the ASW.

I'm not sure when she submitted her report.

I updated today, but I also just changed to ED so that may have been what caused it. I was never held.

I interviewed Dec. 21 and my status changed 1/4. I got the hold email on the 6th, and I'm supposed to know by the end of the month, or so they say.

Thanks a lot for this info! I've been at complete for a long time and couldn't figure it out.

So I am a little confused. If you get an update that you think is likely your last one and cant generate a password at 5, is that a waitlist/deny or sometimes does it take a few days? Also how long do those waitlist/deny emails usually take?

Hey guys,

For you guys who did group interviews, any followup? Thank you emails? Flowers and sweets? Promises of organ donations?

I'm torn between sending and avoiding seeming like a pest, esp if it just goes to the big general GULC inbox on the interweb.

As of the moment, complete at 1/28 but no movement since except interview invite.

Second update since my interview a little over a week ago too....

Those of you that had requests for alumni/skype interviews:

How long was it before you were contacted after you agreed to the interview? It has been over a week since I was asked and haven't had any contact, so I was wondering if I should contact admissions.

I was about to post a similar question.

But its only been since Friday for me. It says somewhere in the email it can take several weeks to arrange.

It took just about 3 weeks for my interviewer to contact me. I contacted GULC at about the two week mark and they told me to hold tight till 3 weeks and contact them then if my interviewer hadn't gotten in touch me. Took another week or so before I actually had the I interview. Granted my interviewer was out of the country and interviewed me by phone so YMMV

Haven't been reading this thread in a while, but I'm back.

I was asked to interview and then held in November, and my status just updated on 2/14. Not able to create a username/pass, and my status still says "both."

more or less time frame (very quick). I'm sure it depends on the interviewer, I'm sure they are all very busy people
