My status checker says "Decision Made" as of today and "please allow 3 business days for a decision to be communicated via email."

Small panic attack happening.

+1 at least they don't roll you to RD and then you have to wait again- I am pretty sure if you are dinged for ED and they are going to admit you RD they do it in the same email.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. I remember last cycle hearing from them around 5:30 pm EST so still hoping for today since I still don't understand what would delay the email... :?

It says on my status checker at the top that all decisions will be emailed.

Anybody know if scholarship info typically comes in the initial acceptance?

ETA: Looking at last year's thread, it looks like some people did get their scholarship info with the initial acceptance email.

Ah, just saw that as well. Thanks for the tip! Best of luck, everyone. Last year's thread shows people got the emails around 5:30 p.m. on the same day their statuses updated to "decision made." Fingers crossed!

there isn't room for it on the application, so I guess we can't write one? there's the 300 word optional statement but I'm using that as a diversity statement

Status Checker updated here, too. Don't want to jinx anything, but the data on MyLSN from 2013-2015 shows the first denials and waitlists going out in December. Only acceptances in October and November. The sample size is super small, but that gives me glimmer of a positive feeling as I sit here and obsessively refresh my e-mail.

Haha this is a good sign! Fingers crossed for all of us who are in the "decision made" boat.

I agree. I don't think they'd be sending out denials/WL on their first day of decisions unless your numbers were completely out of range obvious deny (like under both 25ths or something), but pretty much not basing that on anything lol :mrgreen:

I am my own worst enemy... digging through last year's thread on this site, it looks like a bunch of folks got denied and WL'd before the first batch of acceptances went out. Seems like a unusual approach. :?
