Hey, what if I called them?

Honestly, I would rather know my decision now, than have my feelings spared this close to the holidays. My Xmas wouldn't be ruined, I will just know that my cycle will continue on until March/April-ish.

If you call them I'd use a pseudo-name.... like Barack Obama.... Call and ask to talk directly to Ann Perry. Once you get her on the phone pay her 1 or 2 compliments - then ask her to allow the ED applicants to move on with their lives and make their decisions/calls/emails before the end of the business day or you'll nuke Canada.... I doubt she'd want that on her conscience.

Things are pretty silent.... I'm thinking about calling the admission's office and hanging up... to see if they're still alive....

If the problem is that U Chicago is taking forever and ever to make really important decisions, then shouldn't it be the White Council or the Council of Elrond or something? (just asking, my LotR knowledge is fairly limited (for a nerd))

Yes. And I can personally vouch for the non-amused-ness of receptionists when students repeatedly call and then lie about their identity. On the other hand, polite and reasonable prospective students often won my favor, and I would do much more to help them. So be nice to the secretary.

You are pissing off the person who's answering the phone. They have access to applicant records, caller ID, and scratch paper. Is that really what you want to be doing?

Calling once isn't going to be a problem. Doing so repeatedly is.

ETA: Remember the person on the Michigan thread who had Dean Z look up his/her attempts at entering the admitted students website? And how that wasn't a good thing? With the web at least no one notices until you call them about it.

Is the consensus that early RD applicants could be hearing soon or no? Complete 9/8 and UR 11/25

Put me down for a yes on this one (not sure how everyone else feels). You've technically been under-review longer than I have - sooo, I'm thinking they will be releasing some RD with ED. Why not?? - it seems only fair to not torture you too much more. Good Luck!!

Says Decisions, not necessarily acceptances.


This.

Also, I called the office to see if they were indeed done admitting people or not and it went straight to voice mail both times even though my calls were spaced 30minutes apart. Out of the office for the day it seems as well.

At least they won't tell me about the defferal until after the festive season has passed. There is something positive to hold onto. :|


That's what I figured. It would only take a day to make the 30-40 ED offers they so I don't know what they would need to space the calls over 2-3 days.

I knew it was a long shot, hence the ED application, but I still held out a little hope. If Michigan doesn't work out either, looks like I'll be headed to UVA come the September.
