Does 2nd read mean anything? The dreaded "W" word?

Getting antsy! Good luck to all who have been waiting longer!


I think just about everybody went through 2nd read at some point so I don't think it means much of anything other than that you are progressing. I was accepted and I had 2nd read if that makes you feel any better...

I still seem to be the only person who went from 2nd read back to 1st read.

Ah! That does make me feel better! Thanks :) Did you submit any additional documents? I am thinking of submitting an additional LOR and a LOCI just in case.

Maybe going back to the first read was a glitch in the system? Did you try contacting them?

Haven't contacted, and I haven't submitted anything else. It seems super odd!

The admissions packet said that scholarship info would follow shortly after. Hopefully that means a week or so, but who knows...

I submitted no additional documents. I sent the max LORs initially and waited (not so) patiently for the decision. Ask around about when or if you should send additional LORs/LOCI. I haven't researched that yet.

Checking in, have been under review since early Jan. I cannot retrieve my password to check my status though. Modestly annoying.

I think it's either students from previous class or current applicants.

I know its been asked before but I did not see a response. Does everyone who got accepted receive an email same day as their status changes to "decision made?" My status changed but no email or phone call, don't want to wonder all weekend what it might mean.

My status checker went to Decision Finalized around 5PM EST (at least that's when I saw it) and I got an acceptance email roughly 2 hours later.

Hopefully for you guys they just sent the admissions packet and forgot to send the email! Good luck!

Still on Complete 12/17. Under my requirements, the box next to "App Fee Paid or Waived" is unchecked. Is it like this for anyone else?

Someone who was accepted already should give them a call about $$$.

I called them last week about $$, and they said they were currently in the process of determining scholarships and well let admitted students know soon.
