Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
They usually release later (at least Nov sometimes Dec), but I really hope their website is the one of the few examples of Ad Coms being transparent with us lol
Suffice to say I have been burned a few times already this cycle by schools' websites
perhaps it won't be a wave but more of a trickle. it seems they're reviewing apps soon after they get them.
That would make sense, either way I'm not expecting a decision for a bit because my stats aren't anything crazy but I hope someone out there gets in today!
looks like we have similar stats, don't discount yourself!
Thank you! We're in this together!
this supposed wave has consumed so much of my mental energy today
congrats truthful taco!!! u slay
@UptightAloofBonobo: thanks!!
Congrats to the As!
congrats everyone!
not sure if anyone knows the answer, but do they do weekly admissions?
does anyone know if applications are reviewed at random? I submitted 9/1 and was marked complete but still haven't been moved to review?
I think they are random bc I applied recently and am already under review
same—applied like 2 weeks ago, got moved to UR earlier this week.
they usually sort application review by "strength"
really? how do you know that
Spivey talked about it in a podcast. @uptightaloofbonobo
I went UR immediately but I have low stats so I'm not sure lol
does anyone know when a new wave is coming out?
Do they not have a schedule?
ohh I see thanks @nextlumpyspaceprincess
their TL said WL and R's begin tomorrow
Do we think it is going to include As or just WL and R
no clue but their website also says ED decisions begin Monday 12/04. I feel like maybe a few A's tomorrow but then more will come in on Monday with the ED apps
oh sorry I meant that ED goes out on 12/4
anyone know what time decisions come out?
Does RD have a chance of coming out tomorrow?
