how long does it take to hear back?
@StressedIsAnUnderstatement: for me it took 2 months
I applied early December, still waiting
Does anybody else have a tracking number when they check their status? What does it mean?
If you're talking about the school tracking number, I have always had one. I believe it's for tracking each application in their internal systems - I don't think it really means anything on our end sadly.
lsd shows a status change for my northeastern app but it looks the same as before, has anyone had the same thing happen?
anyone going to asd
I had a status change two weeks ago and it was literally a comma lol
Just got decision rendered email
I just got the status change removing the comma - does anyone know if this means anything?
shit am i about to miss another wave?
me too - hoping the wave isn't already over for the day
not even a wave that shit was just a splash
yeah I guess they'll just be doing little splashes here and there from now on? it seems like that's what they did last year
Any movement for anyone?
Nothing on my end.
I wish
i can't wait for asd
