I'm sure it will be considered.

Hey Pless,

I noticed you never changed your avatar when your buddy Cutler threw 4 picks in that opening-day loss to the Packers. No worries, we'll just have to do it again this weekend.

If i've been complete since 12/2 when would you all think i'll be under review? I know they're still reviewing those who went complete october and november, but I woudl assume the chunk of applications come in november, december, so getting to the pool of applicants that submitted mide november I would hope isn't gonna be much longer? what do you all think?

I expect it'll probably be January for you. Dean Pless said he reviews about 100 files most weeks and makes DECISIONS on those files. He also said he goes in order of file complete date.

If you go "in review", it seems like you can expect to hear a decision in about a week. Other than that sit back. Be thankful that Dean Pless's system is as transparent as it is. A January decision for a December complete date is a pretty good turnaround.

Waiting&waiting&waiting~
Went complete 11/10, but since the Ad commitee is reviewing based on the day files completed, I think what I can do is sit and wait~~
Please let me in~~ I promise I will be a good girl~

Dean Pless, I went back to being Incomplete. Are you waiting for my December scores or should I be calling your offices soon?

I would call just to check. I imagine that is what is going on.

Dean Pless, does the tentative 12/11 date you gave before for the next batch of decisions still look good?

It does, although it will probably only be 120 decisions and not the 200 I was hoping for. I am home with a sick child today.

Dean Pless,

Should those that have been ready for review since 10/30 expect to be in the next round of reviews, or is the review process still in the mid-October submittals?

Thank you for all of your responses thus far!

It should be in one of the two next rounds, can't guarantee that it will be next week.

No kidding--this is the one school I don't feel super anxious about b/c there isn't a seemingly 'veil of mystery'. My immune system can't handle it anymore! (No joke).

Do adcoms get holiday vacation in line with the academic calendar (3 weeks?) I am not sure if it will be unnerving or relaxing to not worry about checking status checkers during the holiday...
