Are you sure you're looking under the mailings category?
If you are, don't worry. Just because you're not getting a decision now does not mean that you are rejected, will be rejected, or should start panicking. Heck, the decisions that were made on 12/7/09 might not all be acceptances. They probably just want to review your app a little more. You might even be getting money. If you want a more factual trend of acceptance/rejection times, go to LSN. You'll be able to see what northeastern does.
