Checking in! Submitted today (I know, I'm late). Suspect to not see movement until after the holidays.

And yes, created a new TLS account now that I'm checking in... a bit paranoid...

Whoa just got a fourth status update - 12/19. Wasn't expecting that. It definitely came late this afternoon or even this evening because I know I checked mid-afternoon.

Who has had four updates? Does anyone know if this signifies anything?

For those who have receive acceptance letters, does your status change from complete? Did you get a date change corresponding to roughly when the letter was sent? Just trying to discern the meaning of my 4th status update on 12/19 :lol:

Mine was almost exactly a month ago, but my status never changed from complete and the date changed to the date they mailed the letter. This was mid November, but at that time there seemed to be a pattern of decision letters going out on Mondays.

I haven't been following the date changes on this thread lately, and have noticed people getting in without doing interviews, so who knows how it works. Regardless, it is probably a good sign if you have had several date changes getting closer together.

Is it just me or does it seem like many schools this cycle just leave you at complete for long periods of time as if they are waiting to see who else applies before making decisions on borderline numbers. Seems to be the case.

Good luck!

Did you have an interview?

My interview request was my third complete (counting the initial complete), and I'm guessing a fourth will happen after the interview.

Yep I did but it was a while ago. Although I guess it may have taken them a bit to update after it.

Yeah, my best guess is that it's the "alumni interviewer turned in report and someone in the office processed it" update. It's your first since the interview?

Olaf is the best. Any other opinion is wrong.

I have no shame about the fact that I just got home from a Disney movie.

You should probably try generating a username and password for the ASW though. Just in case. ;)

Nope, just went from 11/13 to 12/19 (which was my fourth date). How many updates is that for you?

I think I just got my 4th status update today (12/20). It's the first status date change since 11/12. Accompanying it is "Application Completed", does "completed" that mean a decision has been made?

Oh there's a difference? I never noticed that. Can anyone else confirm whether your status checker says "Complete" vs "Completed"? Mine says Completed.

I could be wrong, but I don't think mine said Completed until today. It would be good to know if someone can confirm such a difference. Hopefully we both have good news coming soon!

Completed.

At what point do we start over-analyzing?
