Nope. So much for last year's LSN data.

U of MN is my top choice so I applied ED. My numbers, however, are both below the median (but above 25th percentile) so i'm wicked nervous about my chances.

Same as above poster, I pretty stare at my phone sending silent (and sometimes not silent) "call from U of MN adcomm" demands...

Let me know if that works...begging my phone to ring doesn't seem to have any effect.

My numbers must be just the same as yours, Slimpee...both right around 30th percentiles. I am hoping applying ED will give me that little extra push! And you too! Waiting for the 612-number to ring...

I hear you all. I didn't apply ED because I've been to Minneapolis for a grand total of 45 minutes while traveling. But I like winter, I think the school has a great reputation, and it seems like a good fit for me. But all of that comes from internet research. I look forward to visiting, so long as they haven't rejected me by February.Too bad they don't seem to give a lot of merit money and the fact that I will likely be rejected.

I'm glad I'm not the only one freaking out! I have been in review since 11/10/09 and thought the 2 week wait was bad. I hope someone hears something soon! In the meantime, I guess we can all impatiently vent here!

No, I applied ED to Michigan. (Probably a waste of an ED, but its my dream school. Minnesota is my #2 though!)

Ha! Figured as much. But decided to engage in some wishful thinking. Good luck!

Just about a week until the Dec. 1 mailing deadline!

Have a good turkey day, all of you potential Gophers!

My status checker finally changed to today's date (still "In Review"...when it started happening to people a week ago but not to me, I was a little scared.

Of course, it turns out those people didn't get decisions the next day or anything, so we're all just caught up in the next purgatorial state. Blah indeed.

Mine just changed to today as well. I didn't go complete until the 18th so I haven't been waiting long...

Must be some administrative work going on...

I posted this on the UVA board a while back as my guess as to what the Under Review updates mean.

CyLaw wrote:This usually means that while reviewing your file and passing it to the next person on the committee, they accidentally dropped it without the bookmark in place. So now they have to start all over from the beginning.

Sorry, that seems to be happening a lot lately.

I don't like your guess too much....
But I appreciate the effort.

I thought there would be some movement today but I haven't heard anything. Guess it'll go right down to the Dec. 1 deadline.

Maybe MN has decided they're going to take a year off from teaching 1Ls...

Today's mail included a booklet for prospective students from the U of M -- anyone else get it? I've been eagerly awaiting news from MN, but not another ad for prospective students! Let's hope decisions start coming next week!
