My SC still says "Application Complete" but last Friday, the date was removed from it. Did that happen to you? There's still no date attached to it, so I feel like they went in and did something lol

This UVA Seat Deposit stuff -- has it always been there? And I just noticed it? Because I'm sad for getting excited now.

Not from experience, but from seeing a few posts from Non-PT Duke admits, the process looks essentially the same. UR 2 a day/couple days before DLS.

For Chicago, I went UR5 before being accepted. Most people appear to stay at UR4 but I wanted to mention in case anyone misconstrues it as a negative sign.

For Notre Dame, if accepted numbers for the seat deposits (I believe $600 and $400) come up on the status checker when the checker changes to decision made. This shows up before an email or a phone call or anything

For Penn: I just received file complete, today. What does that mean exactly? Before it meant complete and under review.

It means it's complete. It'll change to "under committee review" soon- took about 4 days for me from complete to UR1, where I remain, forever.

Admitted to Minnesota via email today, no phone call. Maybe they are switching since it's late in the cycle.

What's the general consensus on when you should receive ANY type of decision from schools. By April 1? By April 30?

Hey guys this thread is super helpful!! I appreciate everyone's comment.

It looks like the UVA status checker usually stays "complete" forever and doesn't show date changes, but I just found out that mine now shows "Application under review" since "2/2/2015". I've checked it EVERYDAY since I submitted my application, but there haven't been such things so far. It must have changed on Friday.

If this is a sign that my decision result will be out soon and I do get it in the near future, I'll keep you updated.

for NYU my application went complete and UR on the same day 2/10 but I haven't had a single UR date change since then. It might just be my application though..

Also UVA now has a UR date update. Certain people have gone to UR2 as well.


Hope this helps a little!

One additional note for UVA - my status on the status checker changed to "Admitted" a full day before I received any sort of confirmation!

Bumping this thread now that more decisions are rolling in. Anyone have intel on some of the lower T1 schools? UW for instance?

Forgive me, but when has UW been considered a lower T1? Just based off of less than expected employment?

Lower T1 as in not T14. I felt I needed to qualify because TLS tends to be so T14-focused.

Fair. Just wondering! And I heard back from UW relatively soon after I submitted (complete in early Jan, heard back end of Jan), but of course they have the infamous scholarship essay. I submitted that weeks ago, haven't heard anything (deadline is March 15).

How did they notify you? Email/mail/phone?

Email at like 6pm PT on a Friday which was bizarre, and a phone call (that I didn't pick up whoops) the next Monday.
