ughhh "Application ready for review" since 11/17. If it's ready, then review it!!! I check this status approximately every 10 minutes, it's sad.

I went 'Application Ready to Review' on 11/17, and 'Review Complete' today. But who knows what order they go in, or if the new status even means a decision will come anytime soon. (Though I hope it does...)

I went "application ready for review" on the 17th also. i guess this gives me even more reason to check my status obsessively! Best of luck to you and hopefully that 'review complete' will become an acceptance!

you never got "decision pending" ?


FWIW I was admitted two weeks ago and my status went directly from Application Ready to Review to Review Complete. I never had Decision Pending.

I got that same status (no decision pending) right before I got the "Congratulations! Admit Packet Mailed" mailing update. Sounds like more acceptances are on the horizon. Good luck to all!

Actually, it looks like W&M is pretty expeditious when they decide they want you. LSN has many going from complete to decision in <2 weeks.

Do they update the status checkers all at once (i.e. they all change at 5pm) or does it change randomly throughout the day as the decisions are actually made? Does anyone know?

I feel your pain. :hug:

edit: at least they're not taunting you with "Decision Pending"


I guess so. I suppose that this means they haven't even looked at my application yet, which is strange considering people with similar numbers who applied before I did have already been accepted. I feel like they're reviewing applications out of order, or at least I would like to think that. Maybe they're randomly picking one out of the stack of applications and if it's a good one, they accept that person. If it's a bad one, they toss into a big WL pile and don't notify you until March.



It goes straight from "Application ready for review" to "Decision Pending" when they have made a decision. So, they are probably looking at your application.


This isn't true, right? What I am hearing is that it goes to "Review Complete" when a decision has been reached. And decision pending means they are scrutinizing every detail of your app and making you sweat until they decide you have suffered enough.

Mine was at Review Complete this morning, and they just added the Admit Packet Mailed update to my mailings sometime within the last hour. So unless they did everything around 2PM today, they add some things as they go.
