@TypicalMeanOrangutan: tysm!!!
@bagels11 ofc! hopefully we are in the home stretch :)
i was optimistic because of the wave last monday. hopefully tomorrow. I feel like i'll be in the next one based on my application timing
but will likely get R'd due to my numbers
does fordham status check ever go UR or straight from complete to decision
I think complete to decision, but with date changes
I’ve heard the same thing
yeah my date changed a couple weeks ago so hoping for decision soon!
i had one date change 1/4 so i have no clue when to get a decision/ another date change
i also heard it's typical to have 2 date changes before a decision, but not sure
pleasetakemenow
13:04
many get one, some get 2, depends on stats it seems
is a second date change not a nec. condition for a decision?
i thought it was
It seems like most people get one but others dont
does it indate A v R v WL?
pleasetakemenow
15:06
last year, and this year too, most people with 2x date changes got As
pleasetakemenow
15:06
but UR2 is underreported so who knows
does two date changes include the first date change right after u apply and then a second one… or would it be an additional third
i think a third. 1 for when it first goes complete then two changes.
pleasetakemenow
17:20
Yeah, mine changed for the first time 12/20 after 11/01 complete, then again 1/17
pleasetakemenow
17:20
I think im on deck
i hope you are it's been over 3 months
ooo interesting yeah ive had one date change since going complete so hoping for another one now thank u!
