No message for me. My status is still complete and the date is the same: 12/2/2011. Only the fake congrats is missing and the bottom message is different. This is starting to be painfully slow.


Yep. Same here. And my status is complete at 12/20/2011. We will hear eventually..

I applied probably around the beginning of January and was accepted last week. Hopefully you'll hear soon.

Looking at the previous years on LSN this is the slowest year ever!

Seems like that could go hand in hand with the significant reduction in test takers / applicants.

I thought someone already asked Loyola about Scholarship money and they said they would start making decisions in late Feb.? Though maybe I am getting my board messages mixed up lol

Not sure yet, I'd just like a third school in the same range to try to negotiate. I'll be visiting LUC March 30, and DePaul the 31st. I got accepted here last Monday, now in the pool of people waiting for the acceptance packet.

I gotcha. Makes sense. It looks like we're deciding between a lot of the same schools.

I'm still waiting on the acceptance packet from both LUC and DePaul. Still waiting on a decision from Kent. Even if the LUC packet comes, we won't here about scholarship info until the end of the month, I don't think. Hoping I get some decent $ fom DePaul and Kent (if I get in) so I can negotiate with LUC.

Dean Shively from Wake Forest confirmed the drop in applications in the Wake thread.

Another day, no admissions packet in the mail. Can anyone who was admitted earlier than 1/23 who already received their admissions packet comment on how long it took to receive it?

Oh geez. So maybe it will actually include scholarship info...yeah, I'm going to try to negotiate with Pitt now rather than waiting forever for LUC to get their act together.
