If you look at LSN from last year's cycle, there was a large number of admits around 01/15/09 and another one around 01/26/09 (with some rejections, too). If they're following last year's trend, there will be tiers (and blood).

I am ED. They promised me an answer by Friday!

EDIT: Just realized I went over the word limit on PS. Awaiting rejection.

I went way over the limit - as long as you kept it to two pages you're fine.

Actually, a lot of people who were accepted ED heard back in December. The rest of us are waiting for notice of our deferral to RD and then our RD decision.

SORRY! Happy Birthday. I am sure (and by sure, I mean neurotically making deals with God regarding acceptance) that it's a U.S. Mail thing.

Yeah I think they were just keeping the ED apps separate, but hopefully they mailed them like...I don't know, well, i hope they're here TODAY.

I applied PT RD a couple months ago and have not received a decision yet (numbers are in the low 170s and 3.6X)

Hoping to get something in the mail today...

No one getting mail today seems like a bad sign.

It would be very, very weird if no one got mail from GW today. I mean, it's not like GW conspired with UPS to ensure that every acceptance letter--to urban and rural locations scattered across the United States--would reach everyone's mailbox on Monday, January 11. There have to be at least a few people who will get the mail today (and probably a couple who get the mail tomorrow).

And the rest of us poor ED applicants who will get mail sometime in the next week depending on if the Friday deadline means that it is mailed on Friday, or received by Friday. Speaking of which, has anyone gotten a clear answer to that?

I'm thinking that its a bad sign that I can't register on the admitted students site (secret status check). I'm ED and haven't heard anything yet :|

They already started. The recent admits are RD.

If you look back a page or two, you'll see that at least a couple November RD applicants (and one early December RD applicant) have been accepted already.
