Yes, options:

21-26: Decision
1-5: No Decision
6-10: No Decision
11-15: No Decision
16-20: No Decision
21-26: No Decision


The first should be 1-7, I think this might divide it up too much.


1-7: Decision

Better? :D

this.

So if you and I don't get a letter soon, then either they aren't doing this or it takes a lot more time than I thought to get mail to where we live. I don't think it discounts it, though.

You're forcing me to count? I thought I was going to law school, not "count...ing...school".


Haha this is only because I didn't want to count every letter to convert it. Although I'm sure there's a chart somewhere that'll do that.

Is there any evidence they're doing it alphabetically, or is this just for lols?

Instincts of those of us in the latter end of the alphabet, developed from continual discrimination suffered over our lives.

I second this woeful discrimination. Last five letters here and still nothing (SoCal).

The interviewer was probably the best I've had this cycle.

Thinking about posting stuff like that always makes me waffle on the value of better information versus potentially ruining some awesome TLS detective work

But it is possible internationals are done differently.
