This is the quintessential picture for the mailless/e-mailless among us. Well played. Well played, indeed.


Haha, after surviving the waitlist apocalypse, it feels a little more like this.

I thought white envelopes were reserved for rejections/wl's, but these looked pretty thick. Has anyone received an acceptance in a color other than vomit?


Mine came in a big white envelope. One of those post office ones that are weird and puffy. The VCE and admissions binder were inside.


Yep, that's the one! Small world, I guess.

Complete then nothing. The status checker is pointless. Generally dings come in late march or April (I think) by mail, waitlists happen from now on, usually in big waves, by email. The only other thing that might happen is a hold, though that's unlikely if you've just applied. That would come by email. If none of those things happen you just have to wait for the mail. They just started releasing decisions on 1/26ish. I don't think any January submits have gotten in yet. Once they do it'll be easier to gauge when you might hear back.

what does the hold email say? as opposed to the reserve email?

I'm a bit confused on the difference.

Reserve=destined for rejection (anyone know past year percentages?)

Hold= Will actually be rereviewed later in the season?

I really wish I had it in me to withdraw and just count the chickens I already have. Alas, I feel like I must see this through despite the nerves.

No one has congratulated the Giants on this forum yet?

All hail the Giants for making NY proud!

I'm on reserve. Going off of sheer numbers, I should have been rejected.

Definitely not yield protection for moi.

FYI, I've given up waiting. Feels nice to not be neurotic about this anymore.

Me too. It also seems like I've gotten at least an VCE sized envelope every day recently.

Still waiting, submitted 11/2. But I am an auto-reject due to GPA.
