I think this means rejections/holds are coming......because they DID email acceptances. Right?

I think it just means that their system is having problems (as always) and they aren't going to email us the decisions. I guess we'll have to wait for the system to come back up.

I think we will certianly see acceptances when the smoke clears. I voted for 6 acceptances from this thread. I think that's pretty conservative.

I'm just confused by the "we do not email decision letters" part. The previous acceptances arrived via email, correct thread?

i need to stop analyzing this and go back to sleeping/drinking juice. (at home sick)

they e-mailed me an informal 'congrats, you're in' e-mail, but i had to log into the decision retrieval thing to get the pdf of the ACTUAL letter. i suppose that's what he's talking about?

Huh, so based on the people that posted yesterday, I'm guessing this means that some holds are going out. I wonder if all the holds will be at once, or in waves.

I'm thinking they'll drop them at once... If not, two batches at most. Not enough time left in the month to drag it out for too long...

I don't think anyone is saying that. It's hard to tell at this point.

When we get booted from ED to RD....how long until a decision? I'm guessing 3rd week of January.

I imagine they will be able to fix it by the end of the day. It doesn't sound like a catastrophic failure or a power outage issue like Penn had recently.
