Wow, looks like I missed the WL today as well, thankfully. Let's hope for a phone call tomorrow!

yes i received an email stating that a decision was sent to me via snailmail on2/04/11 i have not yet received it. it was my impression, correct me if im wrong, that all acceptances have been by phone. Is this correct? So naturally I may receive a DING! tomorrow

That was my impression as well. It could be a WL? What are your stats, if you don't mind?


I hate having no indication as to when they'll be making a decision about me.

From your mouth to gods ears as they say. I then really want to know in a TLS OCD sort of way if that phone call was a prerequisite for an admission. I never thought of it but that would be a nasty ding. dont you think?

ok. it is unclear to me as well as others why they would only call you for acceptances, email you for a waitlist and as i suspect ding you by mail. in other words those like myself that get an email saying a decision was rendered final decision mailed out on 2/04/11 will probably be politely dinged in the privacy of our own homes upon receipt of this infasmous letter. very dramatic

I mean... it'd just be creepy if they called to say "Sorry but...", plus they aren't going to take the time to call the 1,000+ who don't get in. The phone call for those accepted is partially a marketing gimmick to help sway those considering other schools.

I was WL today via e mail...I was complete Dec 9 and received an e mail yesterday that I was under review...I put my name on the waitlist, but I won't push hard, at this point I am heavily leaning towards BC...Oh, 3.5/161/URM

This is the best idea I've seen on this board.
