Jesus - unexpectedly high volume huh? I wonder if that's indicative of the volume applications across the t14? Sitting tight until the 12th...


FWIW I'm a reapplicant and I think they post things similar to that kind of often or always around thanksgiving


I'm a little confused. Do they usually give phone calls for rejects/waitlists/holiday greetings? Shouldn't the number of admits (phonecalls) stay the same regardless of how many applications they received?


They only call for admits. I think they like to call, but because its busy around this time they can't call as often/as many applicants as they would like. some admits get emails

Anyone applying/applied for BLOS? The requirements online seem a little vague (perhaps on purpose), how does the BLOS essay differ from a DS? Also, are a PS, DS, and BLOS essay all required to apply for the scholarship?

Status checker will reflect UR and you will also receive an e-mail. The date change is probably indicating that your application went from being received to being complete. Took me a little over a week to go UR after going complete.

My current status has been, "We have received your application," since 11/15. Has anybody else waited that long to go complete?
