We are actively reviewing applications at the moment and expect to have decisions finalized by late March to early April.


Late March is much better than I expected!


If they are going to hold themselves to this statement (quoted from page 34 I think) then we really have to get slammed with decisions here in the next couple/few weeks.

Was this before or after they extended the deadline?

Edit: Page 34 is 2/22, so definitely after.

"They have taken the bridge and the second hall. We have barred the gates but cannot hold them for long. The ground shakes, drums... drums in the deep. We cannot get out. A shadow lurks in the dark. We can not get out... they are coming."

That's the quote I thought of after reading your post. Seemed appropriate. Also, outing myself as a nerd.
