Mine also changed to saying that my file is now complete... lame. Something is a little weird though: I got the email stating that my file was complete and ready for review on 10/30, and the status checker mailing section reflects this as well, but the status checker itself says under status that my file was complete 11/4. So I don't know if they've made decisions but intended to hold them back until a later point and something just got messed up with the system, but this is all really distressing and is playing with my nerves.

Maybe certain people received decision mailed in error? For those they may have switched it back. My status continues to say decision mailed. Maybe we are safe?

I think that they had some kind of system-wide error or something... if you look on LSN, the earliest decision dates for last year's cycle were 12/10. That makes them sending out decisions on 11/6 seem really out-of-character, which makes me think its just a big oops.

I don't eat much candy either, but there wasn't any trick or treaters here, and I have 2 really big bowls of candy with no where to go! I'm thinking of trashing them.

edit: I like hummus too!

Under mailings does anyone have anything regarding a decision? I only have letter of decision mailed 11/5 under the status.

When my status previously said the decision letter was mailed, it said nothing about accept/deny/WL, it just said the decision was mailed. Now it just says my file is complete, with a different completion date than what it said my completion date was before. So I really have no idea what is going on with it.

Wow thats odd that you got switched back. I wonder what that means for us who havent been switched. Can anyone who has a decision mailed response give them a call and see if they can check to make sure a decision has been reached? This should help. I called once already-- someone else's turn!

My status is still "Letter of Decision Mailed 11/5/2009."

I will wait til about 4:30PM EST, check it again, and then call W&L to check.

I really wish they had addressed whether or not decisions had been made, now I have no idea. What was the error- that decisions haven't been made, or that they weren't supposed to be put on the status checker?

Exactly. They should be clear about it and say "no decisions have been made yet, so please disregard your checker if it has that status". But no, they instead say there is an error. For all we know, the error is that some people with decisions are now getting "application complete" status.

Can someone please call and ask if any decisions have been made at all? this would clear everything up. It will be anonymous.

So vague. Still leads one to ask whether decision have been made at all.
