Mine took roughly 3 weeks. UR Dec. 17 with a decision on Jan. 3. I'm not sure this info is very helpful looking forward though.


Smokies that's a pretty fast turnaround! Do you think it has to do with your numbers? Do you mind sharing?

170/3.8X. I guess it does seem fast now that I'm looking back on it. At the time it certainly didn't feel like a fast turnaround.

I'm at 2 months though pretty much an auto-reject.

I went UR on 12/6... So I'm sitting at about a month here. Apparently, obsessive status checking does not actually speed things along.

So I guess your answer is that the time between UR and a decision depends on a variety of factors, and trying to guess what day you'll hear back on is fairly pointless. Just in case, keep pressing F5 on the status checker and checking this thread and LSN. You never know!

No complaints on that front! I'm sure you'll hear from NYU soon. Also, funny, we got accepted to Gtown on the same day!

Will rejections come by mail only, or will we find out from status checker when our rejection has been finalizezd? I've been In Review since 11/21.

Also just wanted to say that Berkeley's medians and "holistic approach" are such a flame when you look at who is actually accepted.

Non URM above 75ths as well, and I'm not seeing anything pretty come from Berkeley.

I enjoyed the Spartan atmosphere that was developing earlier on this page. I die with you, brothers.
