Took me 2 weeks and that seems about normal, but after that there is pretty much no pattern to UR and decision.

Waitlisted. I would really liked Penn but the University of Chicago is looking better and better. Best of luck to the rest of you.

Penn's started releasing decisions on different days too?? Oh boy. I'll ask again, have any holds heard or do we have any idea when we might hear?

So acceptances are phone calls, waitlists are emails. How do rejections come?

Yes. I probably should have withdrawn at other schools, but it feels good to get more acceptances.

That's how I feel about my safety school. I should just withdraw as there is no way that I'll be going, but they've kept me waiting for so damn long. I just want an answer.

EMAIL.
Just got mine.

Good luck to the rest of you guys!

Edited to say (because I didn't get too far into the rejection email) that UPenn's rejection actually sounded like they had read my file, unlike Harvard with their generic disingenuous drivel. (I like ales, maybe I'm bitter!)

Seeing your numbers makes me feel scared. I suppose I have no shot at Penn...

ME!

Edit: approximate odds of hearing tomorrow (IF we're accepted)? Or are we waiting til next week? Or does no one know since they seem to have surprised people with Thursday decisions? Ew.

if you are under committee review, how long do you normally stay there?

Usually 2 UR dates (of varying lengths). I got my call a week after my second UR, but from what I've seen on this thread, it's really unpredictable.

EDIT: Also, best of luck to everyone waiting for a call today!

Up until today I didn't have to worry - but I got my second UCR yesterday. Now it could come any Friday (or Thursday?) in the next 2 months.
