Honestly, no... He, rightfully, played it close to the vest. I'm sure their stance is that they really do not need
to give us any of that information. However, he mentioned that there were multiple "batches" of acceptances that had yet to be sent out (as of last night). Unfortunately, April 1 is on Sunday..so I'm not sure if that means that tomorrow is their last day...or if they will be working Saturday/the weekend as well.
My gut tells me to give it until about next Wednesday before I start assuming that I am a member of the "waitlist/deny" group.
Best of luck to you!
Did he mention if an applicant would go under review before a decision? I'm still sitting at complete, and I worry that they haven't even opened my file yet.
GS Gold also wrote "Status is now: "application complete, under review". The stuff at the top is gone too. Good sign or does that probably just mean a big batch of WL is coming tomorrow?"
My response to each (and an earlier poster): No, Dean States made no indication as to whether or not the status checker would change prior to receiving a decision...BUT, from what I have read over the past Several months throughout this forum, it seems pretty likely that the status checker would change from "application complete" to "in review" or "under review" prior to receiving your decision. With that being said, I will say in response to DexterMorgan's post that they have definitely opened your file. Tossing a file out simply based on numbers is NOT UNC's practice...I honestly believe that they actually DO read each and every file they receive. Granted, maybe there are a few that are just not worth the time (i.e. 2.5 GPA 150 LSAT), but I am assuming most of us using this forum do not fall within that realm.
I, too, have been stuck at "application complete" since 11/15. My gut tells me that this means that I will be stuck in the waitlist/deny group. Here is my reasoning: Every single person I have talked to who has been accepted to UNC, and every person who has indicated on this server that they've been accepted, has indicated that they their status checkers showed that their file was "in review" JUST before they were accepted.
Thus, I believe that if we do not see our status checkers change from "complete" to "in review" prior to April 1, it is safe to assume that we will likely be waitlisted or denied... I say that because the status checker, and Dean States, both explained that those who do not receive a decision by April 1, will not be part of the "first round" of acceptances. However, I would still hold out hope until the end of next week. I only say this due to the fact that they have an inordinate amount of work in front of them...and I'm sure they don't want to include/exclude the wrong candidates.
The only thing we can all do now is be patient, hope for the best, and keep our eyes peeled on the status checkers for any movement.
GS Gold, I think you are IN, but please do follow up and let us know when you get word! Best of luck to you both! And congrats to all of accepted applicants!
