do we think any more As? i dont want to be ghosted
I spoke with them about 2 weeks ago and they said i should hear from them within this week. I still havent heard anything :/
hopefully i dont get ghosted because i haven't seen anymore A's rolling out
The last thing I remember seeing on here and reddit was about 2 waves of WL and a slight trickle of A's and R's. I guess they like to play their cards close to their chest.
Emailed them to ask for an update and was responded to with a rejection very soon after
Good luck to y’all!
anyone else still being ghosted?
