Neither FR, nor status checker movement, nor rejection

Is this what purgatory means?

11/22'er here

Help.

The unrequited love song Silence is Golden seems appropriate for this thread today....

So according to the website, financial aid offers aren't made until May - is that true/the whole story??

I'm in the same boat as you; I went UR just this past Tuesday.

I just got a call from someone at admissions, and it was good news! In with 3.51/171. I'm not gonna lie; I was very surprised.

CONGRATS!! This is great news, they aren't done with acceptances yet! What was your UR date?

I got an email on 12/22 letting me know I was under review. The admissions officer said that the letter would be sent out sometime over the weekend, so presumably even if you didn't get a call, letters are on their way out.

Congrats on getting in. Not sure what that means for 11/22ers though. Seems like they would have for sure made it through our apps by now.

Don't know why they can't make it easier for us and just reject us already. Looked through last year's forums and 11/18'ers were getting rejected as late as Feb 25th.

I'll flip a fucking shit if I just get straight dinged come Feb, especially without FR. what I don't get is that if these schools are de facto wait listing or holding us, why not just tell us instead of doing this? A WL could've been given after an initial review and all would be well. I seriously don't get why all schools don't do this for non auto admits, it just makes sense.

I think it's because sending out WL stuff takes time. Time that they feel is better spent making decisions.
