According to the “What to Expect” thread, it goes straight from Complete to Decision Mailed

Applied early Sept and interviewed mid Sept. When should I expect to hear back?

Last year, the first wave of acceptances started on November 18th.

If I went complete on the 18th of October, it's safe to assume I wouldn't be in the first wave, right?

I don't think there are many safe assumptions about timing of acceptances and so forth. When I asked about timelines during my interview on campus, I was given the impression that the director of admissions makes decisions about when to send notices on the fly, rather than according to a schedule. The staff might show up for the day and be told, "Okay, let's do some waitlists today." The beginning of notices going out sounded like it was somewhat consistent, though.

Last year on Nov. 18th they admitted someone who went complete as late as Nov. 10th! (This is off mylsn). That said there were also people who applied Sept. 1 and didn't get answers til Dec. or Jan. So....like all of this. A crapshoot.

Does anything show up on the status checker when our interviewer has submitted whatever it is they submit? I indicated on the application that I did an interview, but I don't see anything on the status checker that shows that.

Well, I'll hold out hope that I'll be in one of the first waves then!

Nope, nothing has shown up on mine. I interviewed with an adcomm, not an alumni, so I know that they have record of my interview. I assume it just doesn't show up on the status checker.

I don't think so. I interviewed on 9/14 and have been complete since 9/5 and I don't see anything on my checker regarding the interview.

Mine too! Hoping that they sent a wave of acceptances. From Nashville originally, really want this acceptance.

From previous years, its seems like they sent out acceptance emails around the same time that the checker status changed to "Decision Mailed." Hoping that's the case this year!

I went complete on 10/16, and interviewed on 10/20, so I will probably be obsessively checking my status checker this week. Good luck to all of you that got a notification, I think that having your decision mailed this early in the cycle can mean only good things.

No, I don't think they come back with scholarship offers until February.
