To those who are still EAC, it is fine to call and ask for your decision. I'm still listed online as Early Action Complete and called on a lark. Unfortunately, it was not good news for me: deferred to the reserve list with a 3.5x/169. I actually thought based on LSN that my numbers were pretty safe this go around, but I guess not.

Looks like nobody has been accepted thus far from the 11/13 pile...

...maybe it is a cursed number. I'm going to call after I down a shot (or three) of liquid courage. Wish me luck folks.

CONGRATS! It's great to hear some people are getting accepted after the long wait!

I'm still EAC 11/13, called today, and was told that I'm still under committee review but that I should probably hear by the 24th.

I'm another member of Team 11/13 who called. No decision for me yet either -- but they didn't tell me anything about committee review or 12/24.

Thank you! I was actually shocked...right when I called she said they were putting my admit packet together.

I wonder if they're starting to get annoyed now that everyone's suddenly calling them without a DR... (trying to talk myself out of calling, for fear of bad news)

It did not sound like it at all. She was super nice.

+1

I'm trying to tell myself not to be annoying and only call when I'm supposed to. I'm about to break though...

Well, 11/13 was Friday the 13th.....


Of course, my EAC 11/11 (still) isn't doing too much better.

I'm resisting calling...

Just in case I change my mind, how did people phrase what they said on the phone?

Was it something as simple as "I'm Early Action, and I was hoping to see if a decision had been made on my file?"

Yeah I did and she said there wasn't an update on it yet but I should hear by the end of the month with something in the mail.

I'm EAC 11/12

Just called and I'm STILL UNDER REVIEW. Ugh. I keep telling myself that it's because I'm JD/LLM and not because they're dinging me.

See, that's the thing -- if a decision hadn't been made on my file, I would feel awkward calling again two days or so later when I inevitably have a DR. I have a feeling this is a sort of "one round in the chamber" kind of deal, and I don't know if I should waste my bullet.

Yeah, but once they've made a decision they're not going to revoke an offer because you called admissions twice.

Nice to see they still have some acceptances to hand out. Congrats to those who got in.
