They say no news is good news and since they've held on to my app this long I'll try to just stay positive. This has indeed been a gut wrenching cycle. When I applied to schools during undergrad years ago decisions both good and bad were 6 weeks max I've waited 15+ weeks for all of my schools this cycle. I thought it would have been quicker this time around given drop in applicants, etc but I guess schools just don't know what to do with me... I've only made it onto 1 waitlist at a top tier school the rest have not given any type of decision...


What are your numbers??? Where have you applied? Did you apply later towards the cycle?
This cycle seems to be hit or miss in terms of timeframe. I've heard back reasonably quickly (with the exception of held status @ Northwestern), while others have had less luck. And it appears to be random as well.

Have you considered LOCI at other schools??

At this point, it would make more sense (for them, anyway) to wait till after next Tuesday's deposit deadline. At least we'll get first dibs on any open spots before the WL folks, I guess.

Last year, there was a wave of acceptances on May 3 (which would be next Friday) following the initial deposit deadline. I would start stressing out next week. Wave of WLs came afterwards on May 8, if I recall.

reporting in on behalf of a non-TLS friend:

Called the adcomm. They said Hold decisions should be coming out this week, couldn't provide a specific day

I'm jaded at this point and will assume that decisions will be forthcoming at 4:59 p.m on Friday.

Last call for hold list LOCI, essays, LOR's. The vast majority of decisions will be forthcoming next week.

Thus announceth the Johann across the Twitterverse. I guess our wait will be a little longer: after so many months, what's another week? :oops:

Do you guys think that means acceptances this week and WLs/rejections next week?

I wouldn't read to much into that tweet, as far as rejections/acceptances/WLs. If anything, if it's truly "Vast Majority" this week, it'd be WLs/rejections, as there will surely be less acceptances than WLs/Rejections (combined).

Good luck everyone!

From LSN of past two cycles: probably one or two admits this fri. Then majority will hear next, mostly being WLs.

For one reason or another, my alcohol intake is definitely going to increase this week.

Good luck, everyone.

I won't panic until Friday. If it's one thing that this cycle has taught me is that with admission decisions 'next week' means 'Friday of next week, at earliest late Thursday evening, but really most likely Friday afternoon.'
