I feel like it's a bad sign that I didn't get anything yet and I'm in New York. Does that automatically mean rejection/waitlist at best?

He might be keeping the good stuff for himself.. you know... to.. uh... pleasure himself?

Dunno, NY mail carriers scare me. I could tell you some stories, but I doubt you'd believe me.

This has probably been answered, but I can't find it..... has anyone received the acceptance packet without status checker changing from complete?

Has anyone overseas gotten in without an email? I didn't receive one and my mailing address is in England...does this mean I'm prob out this round? I'm clinging to the insane hope that they figure post gets there quickly enough that they didn't need to email....

YES!

When I started hearing that the mail had gone out, I started getting hopeful... but not too hopeful, since I only went complete just before Christmas - especially having not heard yet from UVa / GT / UCLA / USC and going to committee at Berkeley. I started thinking something had gone horribly wrong in my Personal Statement, or that in the era of LSAT retakes, my score wasn't good enough even if I showed up as 50-50 on the calculators... Good luck everyone!

Congrats! We're numbers twins (even though I don't have a PhD) which gives me a little bit of hope.
