Not to worry, according to LSN, last year's acceptances for Nov. applicants came all the way through Xmas, and some even after...
Actually, I applied 10/17. :oops: But went complete 11/03, too. I actually think I'm going to quit TLS until finals are over. This is taking a nasty toll on my GPA. :P


+1 LOL. FWIW, I applied on 10/18. I should have said that there are plenty of Nov completes that heard all the way into Jan...

I completely understand the feeling!

Instead of calling their office, how about emailing them for a mailing status?

You know, going through this process, I am convinced the "timeline" aspect of TLS/LSN is a huge source of stress. Knowing when others hear drives us crazy. Yet response times are so unpredictable that they border on pure chance. It really is irrational to predict anything from a random process...

(remember, even the most "solid" trends on LSN suffer self-selection bias, and there's almost always an exception here or there that could represent a ton of people...)

Yeah, your profile is the most viewed by a long shot. I was just wondering if there was any particular explanation for it or if it's just sort of random chance. I was surprised to find you're only at 100-ish posts on here. Thought you'd be some uber-popular mod or something.

Hahaha Saya don't worry! I'm international too and haven't heard anything either. I would guess that it may take a little more time to evaluate international apps. Remember it's only 12/12! Hang in there!

And of course, we can always call if we don't hear anything...

I guess we *could* call. They're probably bombarded with phone calls like this all day. Sigh, it's good to know another international student is waiting! Except, it's not like I'm in Madagascar. Just Canada. lol, probably the least international I can be.

Hmm... I think they were discussing this a few pages back and the consensus was yes, you can submit it later. Before Jan 1? Don't take my word on the date, I can't quite remember.

lol, if it helps, I'm in the U.S. (w/foreign grades), so I think I'm even less international than you. And as a 3.9/175, complete same day as you, I haven't heard yet. Hang in there...

For those that submitted their apps and are submitting the scholarship essays later (before Jan 1):

1) Did you still check the box for the scholarship you are writing when you applied?
2) Are you just going to email the essay as a PDF and ask them to add it to your file?

My app is ready to go but I'm still trying to get through this essay. Wondering if I should just submit and finish it the next two weeks...

I did check the box, and I wasn't sure if it would be best to mail or email the essay (and as a pdf or a a .doc).

I didn't check anything because I wasn't sure if they were going to expect the app right then and there if it was checked.

Hopefully they don't read into that as "she's not interested in applying to the scholarships".

Hmmm...seems there's no consensus on this. Anyone else?
