Does anyone know when the first wave came out last year?
Looking at the LSD data from 21-22, looks like around 19 October
Does anyone know if UH sends an email decision or regular mail?
when did y’all get decisions today and when did you apply?
I applied the first week of Sep and still nothing.
okay that makes me feel better thank you
UH sends email
Anyone go UR2 on Oct. 31?
Lol and now my date changed again to 11/10. Anyone else?
I feel like this is my third time at least to have a date change while in review
I just checked mine and it still says 10/31 :/ im just so tired of the waiting game i hope theres a big wave of A's this week *and that im in it lol*
Did anyone get a phone call?
I got a call earlier from a Houston number today but didn't answer, and seeing that there was a little wave, I'm kinda wondering lol
I just got an email, no phone call
Randomly got a date change from 10/31 to 11/16! hope it’s good news ❣️
Date change 11/28 r3, I bet there is a wave sometime this week
well it seems like they sent out an R today so i think its safe to assume some A's will be coming out this week as well
I still havent had any update past the date change to 10/31 :/
same seal, last date change was UR 10/31. i feel like it must be right around the corner though
For those who were accepted, did your page ever go blank? Or a better question: was there a tell-tale sign that a decision had been made in your portal?
received my first A today from UHLC!
to answer your Q @ch5, my status checker actually says "decision rendered: accepted" and the email came through at exactly 5pm
Do you remember what time of day it changed to decision rendered? @chaoticneutralbi:
i was at work so i wasn't able to check during the day, sorry! the last time i checked my status was around noon and it still said under review
and by 5pm the email came through, checked my status when i got home that night and it said decision rendered
Perfect. Thanks so much!
