A very nice lady told me that they were completely new to the Status Checker utility and as such they didn't know what it meant either. She looked up my file and said that I was complete and I was being reviewed. She cautioned that most people could have that status from now all the way up until March when "the majority of their decisions go out".
And now, I need some drinks.
I don't think I'm gonna check my status there too often if it could be the same for another half a year. It just worries me that a bunch of people with numbers at exactly my level got in so quickly, yet I didn't hear back. Oh well, guess I gotta wait and find out.
Yeah, it sucks. I have better numbers than many who have heard back already despite submitting last month. It speaks to the arbitrary nature of admissions. It also speaks to how impatient I am.
