If you have a legitimate question that you are iffy about whether you have waited long enough, I would just send an e-mail. At least then they can deal with it at their convenience. Calling, while better in the way of instant gratification, is also a bit more obtusive for the adcomms.
If you need to burn your anxiety constructively, just start writing LOCI's and Why X essays. Heck, write an LOCI for every 6 weeks til the decision deadline. If you know UVA is it, just write the admissions office and ask to change to ED.
Or if you really can't handle it and are fortunate enough to be in a state where MMJ is an option, go find a caretaker. You're in this for the long haul.
Hahahahaha.... thanks for the advice. I didn't mean to sound like a lunatic.
I am ED, which is why I was wondering because of the 15 day timeline and I'm on day 14 and haven't heard. Whereas others heard 2 days later and the majority seem to have heard around the 8 or 9 day mark.
However, I also don't want to be that pesty kid that's like "hi, it's day 15 and I'm holding you to it"... but Mumofcad's idea is solid. Wait the 15 business days and then at that point call if need be to say that I went complete a while back and haven't heard back.
