Yay! You totally deserve it! Welcome!

They can't be done with phone calls, surely.

My status still says Faculty Review, for whatever it's worth. Just checked it.

And Berkeley, you should know I didn't even look at Michigan's status checker today.

Thanks so much everyone!!! Omg everyone freaking out seriously chill. This whole forum almost gave me 99999999999999999 aneurysms! There may be still be hope :-). I was already planning on being rejected just because everyone made such a big deal about not getting a phone call yesterday. I literally told Dean Tom, "I seriously thought there was no chance of getting in at this point!" and he was like, "Well that's why I'm calling you with good news :wink: " Regardless I'm sure most of you have gotten into REALLYYYYY good schools. :-) Soooo you MIGHT still get in or you might go to an amazing other school. It's not the end of the universe. I'm 100% certain I want to practice in CA so the whole thing was super stressful but even so after having a phone conference with the head of the career center at Penn I realized it wasn't the end of the universe if I had to go there. Chin up! All of you :)

IN via email (I'm overseas, so that might explain why there was no phone call.)

Congrats to everyone else who got in!!!!

For those of you still waiting, don't lose hope!
