woo! Thanks for calling! :)

I guess that answers the question about the Mailings section - I've been DF for nearly a month, and nothing has changed about the status checker (assuming I'm one of the decisions already mailed) :|

My stats are pretty median all the way through, but i was DF since 12/8. Is anyone DF and below medians? I'm worried because theres people in this thread who are auto admits who have are still under review, so I'm wondering if DF means already means acceptance or just they got to your app first but it could be a ding.

As far as the "some decisions" thing, I am choosing to believe he meant some decisions as in some of the applicant pool as a whole has been decided on and their decisions are in the mail, not some of the decisions we've been made are in the mail. I guess we will see soon if my theory is correct.

You should be admitted based purely on your 'tar, imo!!

For those who are unfamiliar, it is based on an Eddie Izzard joke about coming up with a truly original sin.

My status checker updated...UR 1/1/2011.

Wow, USC is working extremely hard. I mean...it's New Year's day. I suspect they are going towards the whole holistic thing and will be giving each app an extremely thorough review. The only explanation that I can think of.

Cheers to that!

Anyone else have to submit a dean's letter? I applied late(r), for reasons beyond my control (applied 12/30, got a status checker/confirmation email 1/2). Dean's letters, like everywhere, take forever to process, and my dean emailed me on 12/21 confirming what she would be reporting, and that it would be sent. The admissions office told me that my file is incomplete because the letter had not been received. But what I think, and hope, is that this is just a case of machine being faster than man, in that the emails from USC are (obviously) just form letters that get sent when the application is received electronically, whereas the snail-mail letter takes an actual human to process. Couple that with the fact that the letter was coming from the east coast, and there was Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve (albeit not official holidays like the days they precede) before them (not to mention the fact that they were probably on break or something?)

I'm actually much less nervous now, since it looks like USC hasn't given out as many decisions yet as my other schools, but I just thought I'd check and see if anyone else either sent out their dean's letter a couple weeks first, or waited a while for it to show up.

I submitted 11/26, my dean's letter was sent from UCSD on 12/9, and I went complete 12/14.

Immediately (within minutes) after I received the email on 11/27 saying my app had been received, I received the email saying my dean's letter was missing. I would definitely say that email is automated and you shouldn't be worried about your dean's letter. I imagine you'll be complete soon.

Thanks! I'm complete everywhere else, so this is just that one little loose end that's been driving me crazy.

And now I feel like an idiot for emailing the office about it.

Don't, your response is completely reasonable and I bet they will think nothing of it!

Yep. Small envelope, 1 sheet of paper. I don't remember the ir date but submitted 10/7, complete 10/8.

Good luck to everyone! I'm sure they'll come pouring in today and tomorrow.

Edit: Just checked status checker: decision finalized 1/3.
