I submitted on 11/3 and haven't heard back, except for to get a status checker via email. Even my status checker has no updates, just says LSDAS Requested 11/8.

Oh, good, it's not just me. At least that makes me feel more comfortable!

Out of all the schools I've applied, it seems Whittier does the least regarding their status updates.

Well, via the status checker, I'm now complete at Whittier. Not sure what the timeline is still, but at least it's progress. Anyone else have any movement?

Yeah, I just noticed an incomplete, called and found out I needed to send another addendum. That is all done.
I asked the admissions person on the phone if this would delay my decision. He said yes, but not too much since they most likely will not have any decisions done before xmas. I am grumpy about being delayed. Oh well.

It looks like they did a lot of updating today. After a month I've finally moved into "Complete."

I have to give Whittier major kudos.
I found out yesterday that my status was incomplete, called, and was told they needed additional addendum info. I was also told this could delay me a couple of weeks. I mailed it last night and called to make sure they got it.
Today...I am complete and in committee! I am actually really impressed with how nice they were and how fast they turned my app around!

Congrats! Looks like it may be until after Christmas/New Year's to actually be able to get a hold of them. Left a message last week, called occasionally since then, and no answer.

Finally heard back after contacting the FinAid department regarding merit scholarships - $26k for the first year with amounts in the next years contingent upon class placement...
