Is it too late to apply to LEO if I submitted my application already in March?
Has anyone heard anything recently? I'm an in-state applicant above both medians, my app was marked complete on 01/17 and has been under review since then.

Jumped to the top of mine just now, LEO or bust for me
When you say LEO or bust, what do you mean? I applied LEO but also in early January. Does this probably mean I was not accepted via regular admission and now waiting for LEO admission only, since it is so late in the cycle?
