My roommate and I both live in Baltimore. I am very serious about the part-time program and applied. He applied with higher numbers than me, but he really has a desire for a t-14. He was accepted within two weeks (both #'s above 75th quartile). I am still waiting.
If I were to take a guess at what's going on, they are holding applications to figure out scholarships vs. sticker vs. waitlist. I've read about some dings, so it has me a little optimistic that if you are IR for a long time they would have dinged you earlier.
Edit: To qualify, I have been IR since 12/1 no date changes. Thats what I qualify for "a long time". For those who applied in the last couple of weeks my advice is patience.
I agree that a few weeks does not constitute a long wait. And, it's been 8 weeks since 12/1. So, hats off to you for your patience.
I was mostly curious as to why some applicants (who applied later) received decisions sooner than others (who applied earlier). Accepting applicants with numbers above both 75th percentile earlier is not surprising at all. However, I wonder how other variables come in to play?
At any rate, I am also very serious about the part-time program. Hopefully we receive good news soon!
