Not sure about that, I had the packet in hand when I called and just requested the emails. They're very nice though, so if you updated 3 times with the third being 2/3, it may be worth a call if you're too excited to wait for the packet. I don't know for sure what other update patterns have gotten in after 2/3, though.



the problems... what were they related to? their email systems?


Yup

3 total. That's how many I had, at least, and seems to be the magic number. 2 may or may not be in some cases. Seems like it's something like 1 = file received, 2 = UR, 3 = decision.

what if the first time change it stated file incomplete? and then the second time change stated complete? do you think that counts as 2 or just 1?

Not sure about that one, but my instinct is no. I had a couple of LORs missing before my first "real" update, so I think it's like 2 updates after you're 100% complete. In case everyone can't tell, it was a rough 2 weeks analyzing why I hadn't gotten an acceptance email yet and looking for a pattern that would tell me when I would :lol:

That's what I figured. So why is my mailbox empty? It doesn't take THIS long to get to FL.

Im under the impression that if you (we) were to update again, before April, that means we are in!
As I said, one more to go!!

It's not.
(though it's kind of odd that I got it, looking at the admittance stats)

I think most with a 169+ and 3.2ish get it, depending on softs and background. Not sure, of course, but that's how it seems to me.
