I don't think so. The letter was a surprise present in the mail. :)

And it doesn't update after the decision is sent, either. I'm still at "application completed" or whatever.

So for everyone who had their 3rd update on 11/29 & those who have already been admitted, would the 29th be the day (assuming they admitted us) they sent out their decision letters? Will be checking the mailbox incessantly, nonetheless.

Edit: Crazy timing, essentially reiterating the question above me.

From my experience, the mailing got sent out on the 3rd update day. After that you are left to the mercy of the USPS gods who determine your fate.

But seriously, mine took about a week because I live in the midwest.

Thanks, oh God, not the USPS.

I live right by GULC, so I'll post on here ASAP if i get anything in the mail.

Was your decision sent after complete + 3 updates as well?

I am really kicking myself for not counting my updates. -_-
I know I had 1 or 2 before my interview and 2 or 3 after.
I shall hope for three and sacrifice a goat to the USPS Gods.

C'mon, TLS. I'm counting on this no interview, 3 update rule!

I started debating in my head how long DC mail takes. It should be like two days max right? RIGHT?

Hahaha. My thought exactly. Do you live in the DC area? If the letter was received by the USPS on 11/29, I'm expecting it on Saturday the latest!

Yes, I do. I kind of want to stay here. Mostly. But I'm not crazy enough to turn down a T-10 to do it unless I have to (ED GWU).

I'm pretty sure somewhere in this thread people said its through e-mail


So doesn't that mean if you're getting snail mail you got in? Since rejections and waitlists are sent through email? :shock:

I hear ya. I'm not originally from DC & I love it here. I would enthusiastically attend if admitted.

I would think so. The stressful part is not knowing if they actually sent out a letter, since we're just basing this off of the 3 updates. The 3 updates followed by a decision seems to be pretty consistent (unless you interviewed?), so I'm thinking you're right!

That is 'copy-paste' The same update progression as I had after my interview. I am hoping my letter is in the mail today but I live in UT so I am worried that i'll be waiting into next week. :(
