I'm one of those October completes they're still considering, though I'm beginning to wonder/worry that updating my transcript effectively pushed me back to a January complete date. It wasn't that much of a difference, but they haven't updated me since before they would have received it.

I emailed and asked if this would happen before I sent another LOR. Their response, in its entirety: "No."

Still UR 12/14 after first being UR 11/25.

Just realized that all of us who went UR on 11/25 are nearing the 6-8 weeks schedule for a decision that they mentioned on their website. So I guess we should hear something by Monday.

"We have now released most decisions on files completed in Sept. and Oct. However, Ad. Comm. is still carefully considering some early files." - their twitter

i don't know about monday; they still leave things pretty hazy in the tweet. UR 11/25 here, still.

in other news, according to twitter, travel reimbursement for admitted students? oh man, i want!

Helmholtz: Complete 10/13 and Under Review 12/21

Does anybody want to guess whether I'm looking at a rejection or a waitlist?

Well, at least you wouldn't have to choose between Mich+50k and Chicago at sticker. That would be one hell of a tough choice, if you ask me.

Wtf is it about me that makes schools take forever to review my file? Seriously.

EDIT: Sorry, I shouldn't complain, but Chicago and Harvard's machinations are infuriating.

They don't offer full-rides. They're pretty liberal with auto-rejections though. hth

It'd be funny if they held on to a last group of auto-rejects until the very end of the time frame and then emailed them and made fun of them. Funny, but unlikely.

UChi is going to send you one of these shirts: --LinkRemoved--. Because they know there's no way you attend.

Sorry the picture is so small. Hopefully you remember those shirts.

Yes that would be amusing. I'd actually kind of appreciate that email. It would provide me justification to write a scathing response, to which I would gladly BCC TLS if I could.
