Compulsive status checking unfortunately does not hurry things along, but I know it can be hard to control :lol:



When you say "it was another 7-10 days before I received a decision", did that decision come in the mail, email, or did you see it on the status checker?


My status checker changed some time that morning. I received an e-mail later that day, maybe around 4 or 5. The snail mail package came about 4 days later.

Are you going to any of the admitted student events next week?



Yay! Congrats! I know you were waiting to hear from them for a while...

I'm thinking about going but I haven't made up my mind yet. You?

Also, what is the likelihood of getting accepted from the waitlist before April?



If you want to go, send an LOCI.

Aso to getting in before April, take a look at the historical data on LSN and see if they look at their WL before the deposit deadline.. Some Schools do, some dont.

I'll be at the reception Friday. I wanted to attend the events Saturday but it's my son's birthday and we scheduled his party long before I received the Hofstra invite. Let me know if you're going. It would be nice to (kind of) know someone there.

Did you find this out via the status checker or snail mail?

Is this a good thing or a bad thing? We're talking about a little over a week from the day LSAC sent the report, to my file being with the admissions committee... Hofstra is one of my top choices (although I applied to some higher ranked schools). Fingers crossed over here...


Right now, mine says "File pending committee review." Perhaps I am being dense, but is this somehow different from what you describe, or is this the second step before it officially goes to committee?

I don't think I'm going to make it Friday. I work in the city and it would be tough for me to get out there. I am thinking about going on Saturday though. If you make it on Friday let us know how it goes!

i sent my app in about 2 weeks ago, and 3 days ago my status changed to waitlist... Very fast turn around. I am assuming that because my app was so late in the cycle they already sent out a bunch of acceptances.

I sent mine 2/8, been "file with admissions committee" since 2/25. I have a good feeling about this week, hoping to hear from a few schools.

Sent in my notice to withdraw today. Hope that frees up a spot for someone else. It also freed up a bit of scholly $$$. good luck to everyone.

Bah, my app has been "Pending comittee review" since 2/23. To anyone that has been accepted: How long did it take to change your status to "With admissions comittee"? Sorry, I'm getting a bit antsy! :)

Got in @ Hofstra :mrgreen: ! I wish I could have went to the admitted students forum in Miami. I may/may not be getting a scholarship. My status checker shows that it's sent out 2 more letters after the acceptance letter. Hopefully, they send me some money or I'll have to withdraw and go to UM instead. :?
