Haha, are you going to visit? I think I am, if I don't have to pay out-of-pocket. My budget is tight enough as it is.

Also, you got the phone call a day later than me even though we were both technically accepted on the same day. So I wouldn't lose hope yet. Or, they could have simply forgot to e-mail everyone, because my e-mail said that a formal letter is coming with the admissions letter.

I will visit if certain factors fall into place (scholarship, other schools things....) - I am feeling like I might though.

You're right about the calls, maybe we are split into two review batches.

Just give yourself a full ride and call it a day. Hell, take away my scholarship. :P

I'm not really sure how Alabama ranks on my list of schools, but I figure I owe it to myself to visit considering the money they offered.

Does anyone else's status checker still say "Complete Ready for Review"? I have had this since almost the end of October and want to make sure it shouldn't say "Pending" or anything...just need to know whether to call or not

Mine has said this since december. I went from "incomplete; items outstanding" to this...it seems like there hasn't been too much movement from Alabama recently, so I'm not too concerned. However, since you've been complete since October, I don't think a phone call would be out of line.

Congratulations Veritas. Did you get the lowered GPA requirement? My letter said Top 30% but admission officials say its lower now.

I didn't apply to 'Bama because I don't have the numbers (though we'll see what happens with my make up retake whenever that will be; if I get a 165-166 I'll join y'all :D), but I've been curious about lowering/removing GPA requirements for a long while and it's nice to hear of at least one school that does this.

Sorry, mine said top third (not 30%) as well, but Bama is lowering their requirement since its viewed as too high. They told me new letters would say top 40%.
