I updated today from sometime earlier in the month...this is my third update...

3.6/167 -- hoping for an admit today!! How do they let you know of their decision? Email?


Updated today as well, although from 11/31 as my last complete date. 167/3.3x, assuming a WL or ding for myself.


Why the lack of optimism? ... you haven't been dinged yet!


Just being a realist (or pessimist)! Pretty much wrote this one off after sitting on complete since 11/31. Who knows, maybe I'll get a nice little surprise but I'm not expecting it :/

Has there a pattern to how many updates people have had before receiving a decision or has it varied?

My status checker changed from 11/4 to 2/6 to 2/16 to 2/22 - and even though I received the admissions email, my status checker STILL reads as "application complete"--it does not hint at "decision made" or "decision mailed"--it's still stuck on "application complete"! So I suppose to answer this question, all decisions go out in email form, though it has been a mixed review of what happens with the online status checks after you've received the email. Best of luck to you!

EDIT: 2/22 was the date of my admissions email, FYI.

Apparently I updated last Tuesday without my knowledge. No email.

to those who've already been admitted, how long did it take for scholarship offer and admin packet to show up?

I think the first round of scholarships went out February 10th to those already accepted. I haven't seen anyone who's received a scholarship since.

As of last thursday, I was told that of the scholarship committee "They are currently still in the process of making initial decisions, but once that is finished, they will go back to reconsider", which would lead me to believe that more scholarships are going to come out after the initial wave on the 10th.

I applied late in the game, middle of January, with a 169/3.82. What are my chances of scholarship? How much, if any, do you think?

I'd say good to very good, with a 84k minimum, closer to 105k. Reading last year thread, others got scholarship money after some went back in the pool. As long as people get accepted by better schools, there will be more money back into the pool.

I emailed after I was accepted, and it was mentioned I was up for a scholarship a couple of weeks ago, and they said might be a month. Guessing after April 1st there will be more offers as money gets back into the pool.

Those were my numbers last year, and I applied end of January. Got 129k, but I had already heard by now.

Complete since 10/28. Just when I was about to email them, they updated me yesterday 2/27, and still a whooping "Complete".

You are not alone, soldier.

Anyone update two days in a row? Curious if this is a common practice and if it means anything except that eventually we will hear back. Lol I'm planning a visit to a school I've been accepted to, but would cancel it if I somehow got in here. Good luck to all of us still waiting.

Ya know what perplexes me is no one seems to really know how or why the date changes? Does it mean they accessed your file in some way, or that something was added to your file? Some people get as many as 4 or 5 updates and others go right to a decision. Idk, but this is a mystery I would sure like some insight into. If anyone has other theories lets here em. And Oftranch, you and I seem to be in the same boat, here's hoping we both make it. Just curious where else you are in or waiting for? You can PM me if ya rather not post it here.
