Nah, it can be under review for a few weeks or months (but they'll tell you if you got to faculty committee). So in my case, I got an email in mid-Jan telling me I had been sent to faculty committee and would have a solid decision by the end of Feb, which is about when I got it.
When will they tell you you've been sent to committee? I've been under review for 5 weeks now (along with all the other 10/19 people).
I think the dean looks at the app before the committee. So you won't hear that you were sent to committee until the Dean makes the first set of decisions, and only if they decide the app needs additional committee review. I think that is how it works anyways
Yeah I guess what I'm wondering is whether we would find out we were sent to committee on the same day that people received their acceptances, assuming we're all in the same under review group.
Like if they send out a big wave of acceptances to people who were under review 10/19 today or tomorrow, does that mean we'll also find out we've been sent to committee review today or tomorrow if we're under review 10/19?
