Congrats! Where are you from geographically?


Thanks. I'm from the New York area. The letter was dated 11/21, but I think it was post-marked on 11/28.

Whats the difference between dated and postmarked? Postmarked means its actually when it was mailed right: ?

I think so (at least that's what I intended it to mean).

So maybe for those of us on 11/21, the letters were written on that day and then sent out Monday? One can hope :D

For those of us who were updated on the 28th with no rejection/WL e-mail yet... what does it mean?

Hey, just had my interview yesterday, and today, my status date was changed to 11/30.
Originally submitted 10/25, completed 10/31, then 11/16 with interview request, and now 11/30. Does this count as my third update?

Anyonw out there admitted after an interview? What was the lag time?
How long before I start the neurotic checking of te mailbox?

I'm guessing (hoping) that it means a letter was written on the 21, but then sat in the office through the holiday before being mailed on the 28, which would explain the 11/28 update. Also makes sense considering the other kid who said his letter was dated 11/21 and postmarked 11/28.

I think this as well. Maybe they updated some of us when it was sent, and didn't update the others. Super weird letters dated 11/21 would be sent out an entire week later though. We'll know for sure if any 11/28ers get a letter today.

Complete 11/04, Interview Request/Complete Update 11/16, Actual Interview 11/23, Complete 11/29, Complete 11/30....does anyone know if this means they have mailed something, went complete twice after the interview.

Yeah, but who knows when their break started, and how the office is structured. I could totally see it getting handed off to the secretary on Monday to send out, and her sitting on it until after the vacation. Nothing ever get's done by support staff in a vacation week. Also, it's not like they have a deadline to meet. This is only crucial to us, haha.

Also usually at colleges it gets picked up by the central mail room or whatever and then they would coordinate with the post office. Basically the moral of the story is there are are a lot of places where it could have gotten delayed/ screwed up. If GULC wanted the process to be transparent to us, maybe they would do something other than subtly updating our complete dates a random amount of times.Anyway 11/21 was my last update, on the west coast, hoping for letter today :lol:

Letter in the mail today! Same story: letter dated 11/21, postage 11/22, and actually postmarked 11/28. My status as of this morning was still Application Completed 11/21. For the rest of you 11/21ers, I'd bet a letter today or tomorrow for West Coast. Also, I'm in NC and it was a two day turnaround. People farther away, do not be dismayed.

big reach 11/21'er here. So far I don't think any of us have been WL'd/dinged, so I'm really hoping to get that letter tomorrow!
