So does this mean that if I went complete in September and haven't heard anything and am still UR 11/25 that they lost my file (joking, sort of)?

That's not true. I only went UR once.

+1 Complete 11/25 --> UR 12/29, In 12/29. Also I'm a splitter, not an auto-admit. I did apply super early.

This is my situation too. I'm thinking about calling the Admissions office, but I don't want to be annoying. At least Harvard and UMich sent out "we are still deciding" emails for Sept completes.

Mine too, and I also don't want to annoy them. Buuuut, I'll send some positive vibes your way if you call for us, which is sure to offset any annoying that you might do :D

Yeah, the looking at my phone method isn't producing results for me, either.

LSN shows the 3 waves of calls so far have come every other week, so if that continues we can calm down for now and get our hopes up again next week.

Catty, are we?

Sorry, I checked my Twitter and saw nothing. Thought it was a cruel, cruel joke. It says Oct/Sept applicants, though, so I won't get too excited.

They just now (almost) finished Sept/Oct apps. Is it too much to expect to be finished by Feb if I am a Nov applicant?
