I am rejecting your theory on the grounds that I don't like it. I am EAC 11/12 and haven't heard yet, and I'm taking that to be good news, despite any evidence to the contrary.

But seriously, I hope this isn't true. Plenty of people with similar numbers to me have been deferred.


Yeah I definitely hope I'm wrong too because I was EAC on the same date.

No


Anything more than no?


Nope. I'm just trying to offer a competing view based on unsubstantiated conjecture like 98% of the theories posited so far.



Got it.

+1.

This is kinda funny since my numbers are pretty borderline.

If I'm lucky enough to get in and decide not to go I will PM you and withdraw from Cornell and then demand that you take my spot.

I think we tried the whole poetic flattery thing in the Fordham area, and we were mostly rewarded with comfortable spots on the waitlist... :shock:

I'm guessing the letters have already been sent out the day our status checker went to decision? Does anybody know how long it usually takes to get in the mail? For people who were deferred how long did it take to get your letter?

For the people who got deferred and had their status checker updated on 12/27, I think the letter wasn't sent until 12/30, which was 6 days after they went DR. That may have been just due to the Thanksgiving holiday, though.

how many batches of decisions have been sent so far? 2 or 3?

I think three. DR 11/20, 11/24 and now 12/4?

Not to feed the fire or anything, but if there were two sets of deferral decisions, there potentially could be two sets of rejection decisions? I'm still not convinced I should be relieved being EAC. I really should join the USS Bitter Pessimism at some point.

[EDIT] I thought I could see into the future...

I think I remember seeing somebody say 12/2 yesterday as well. Maybe next round will be 12/12 and 12/14?

I went back through the thread pages, and the first two batches were 11/20 and 11/24, not 11/22 as I had originally said.

Why? So you'd rather wait for another week with an awful feeling? May as well find out now.

Ah I see! I had to call twice. I said that a few of my "friends" were receiving their decision over the phone and I was wondering if it would be possible to have the same done for me. I cant tell you how awkward it is to be told your rejected via phone call haha!

B/c it's pretty certain at this point. I have already accepted the rejection! Easier than being begged to be told "no" over the phone.
