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.


Congrats!

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 also had an interview yesterday and my status updated today for the third time. Hope it means good news for us!

In via mail! My first acceptance of the cycle. My letter has the same date/postmark date that the others with my completion dates have had (complete 11/7,11/16,11/21).

Yes, send a new resume or at least an update e-mail.

Definitely update them on a new job. I'm pretty sure you're contractually obligated to update all schools when there is any change in your application including your resume, if you submitted one at the time of your application.

I submitted my application on 11/18 and still haven't received a confirmation email back, yet. :( I'm hoping it's just because of Thanksgiving, though=\

while it does seem like they closed up shop last week, i think i had a confirmation back within a day or two. if you submitted through lsac, you might want to first check to see that your report was sent, then email or call the school.

Hoping someone can help me decipher this. I don't know what the consensus is about the meaning of updates.

complete 10/31 (approximately), 11/16 w/ interview request, 11/23 (day after interview), 11/30.

packet in the mail maybe?

also, does anyone know about how long it would take a packet to get from gtown and the west coast?

Did your status change to indicate an Interview? I'm kinda freaking out becasue I haven't heard from an alumnus (to conduct an interview) but I don;t want to seem over-eager and call them.

My status changed on the 16th when I received the request, then it didn't change again until the day after I had the interview (the 23rd). Also nothing ever indicated the interview, it was just "Application Complete" with the date changing. If you got the email on the 16th, I believe the email does say it could take several weeks to hear from someone. I would probably send the admissions office an email if I were in your position, but that's kind of a judgment call.

Sorry if this has been answered before, but did anyone else get an email about an interview 2 days ago? If so, have any of you heard back from the office OR your interviewer? I emailed the woman from the office (Lindsey Lankford) back but haven't received any notice either from her or from a potential interviewer in my area.

I understand what the interview means (that I'm borderline and they need more info to decide), I'm just wondering if I should be worried that I haven't heard back or if I'm just being neurotic.

It took my interviewer about 2 1/2 weeks to contact me.

if it's been more than a week since you got notified, ya better call him/her............ sometimes, as I know too well, they don't check our alumni email that often.............. you don't want to be left out in the cold.

3-5 days..........the delay is in D.C., not the west coast........ so, I figure that, your 11/23 incorporated your interviewer's report, and now, followed by today's decision noted as 11/30. Assuming de3cision made, then, if your're brave enough, check your status checker....... if it doesn't say your WL, then YOUR ARE IN !!!!
sO, DECISION MADE 11/30, PUT IN THE MAIL 12/1, ADD 3 DAYS AND YOU SHOULD EXPECT ACCEPTANCE NEXT tUESDAY.

Since I'm awaiting my next update (after interviewer update), can you PM once you get your acceptance?? Thanks.
