Hope it is good news. When did you file your application?


I applied on 11/4 and went UR on 11/16. If Gemini is right about a blank mailing updates box being bad news then I should not be an admit.

^ The blank mailings theory is incorrect...I had nothing under mailings when I went "Decision finalized" and received the acceptance video three days later.

The more I look into Boston College, the more I like it!

Same, got my decision rendered today, nothing under mailings, no email. Guessing this isn't great news? Mine says "Decision Rendered."

Yes, it's very sulfurous. It's not hot though, it's raining. Raining incessantly, actually.

I wasn't really expecting a decision from Berkeley yet, but it's driving me nuts that I've gotten nothing from ANYONE.

For what it's worth, I've been Under Review since 12/3 and my status checker hasn't changed, I haven't received an email video, and nothing arrived in my mailbox today.

They're not using courier pigeons, are they? :wink:

So you had nothing under mailings, just "decision rendered" and then 3 days later got an acceptance video? I guess that keeps my hopes up, but I won't be expecting much.

It IS Portland, OR! And as you might expect, it's raining here. LOL

And I meant Berkeley (even though this is the Boston thread). They were the ones I expected to take forever.
But everyone has me in no-communication purgatory. Everyone.

I thought Berkeley would take forever, but they sent me a decision in a month :o . Hopefully you'll hear back soon too.

Wait...so a mailing that says, "Decision Letter Mailed 01/14/2011" means what exactly?

I'm too confused to figure this out on my own. Good thing I'm going to law school.

If it's blank its WL/rejection/hold. I don't know if they will be doing holds anymore though, since final hold decisions are made at the end of Feb. I'm on hold. Wish me luck!

When I hear about other people getting decisions, I feel the need to compulsively check my status checker again, as if their decisions will magically change my status also. :(

So....Decision Rendered 1/14 and nothing under mailings means I should start being sad, right?

Lol my point is that mailings/decision finalized means nothing except that they've reached a decision. People were making all these theories during the first big wave of acceptances, only to find out that the status checker was pretty much random.

Everyone go do something to take your mind off this, because you won't know for sure until you're contacted by BC!

Pfft I'm on vacation. I won't get the (possibly mythical) letter for a month, so I'm not going to worry about it until then. Good advice :-)
