My app was complete 12/21 and I believe was 'in review' since then. The decision came today so a little less then 3 weeks? Good timetable IMHO. I have other apps who went complete close to that date and are still in review.

Mine was in review somewhere around there as well. They sent an email out saying that the admissions office would be closed from something like the 22nd into the 2nd of January. So really our decision may have only taken 10-12 days.

True. Funny this is that yesterday I saw a first and second deposit indication on the status checker paid with 0 amounts. Today when it changed to admitted the amounts were there. I wonder if this indicated that that there was an acceptance before the checker was changed? Anyone else had this?

i didn't, and got it anyways. i guess the general advice would be don't do it just because you think you should. make sure you have a good idea of what you want to say.

This.
I think that just like other sup essays you need a really good point or they sound either weak, cheesy or a combination of the two.

Alright, thanks guys! Decided not to do it because I thought it would sound too forced. Just submitted! Congrats to everyone who has been accepted and best of luck to those still waiting.
