Anyone have a date change today but no status change mines been on complete since dec 5 and I just got a date update for today but it still says complete for those of you who have gotten an R has this happened to you? I’m expecting an R so my nerves are killing me!!!!

Congrats!
@pleasetakemenow: congratulations
pleasetakemenow
15:57
THANKS GUYS :)
@pleasetakemenow: your last date changed was in Jan right?
Haven't had a date change since it went complete 12/01. Anyone know what this means?
Has anyone who was placed on hold heard back?
@pleasetakemenow: did your status ever say UR?
16:35
@PunyCautiousDormouse: no :( really thought we'd be a part of this wave
16:36
@Dazzlingpromise625: Fordham apps never go "under review," the status just always says complete, with a few date changes, and then straight to decision
pleasetakemenow
16:37
@Dazzlingpromise625: 12/20 first date change after 11/01 complete, 1/17 second date change
@alliecat: do uk why my date wouldn't have changed since i went complete on 12/01
16:43
@EvasiveFirstSnake: not sure, but I wouldn't take it as indicative of anything yet, they're so behind. i just know that As get two date changes before a decision.
interesting ok thank you -- appreciate it
@alliecat: two date changes including when it first goes complete or after it goes complete for the first time? Like my first date change was dec 5th and it went complete then I had another date change today feb 8th

@PunyCautiousDormouse I have not heard anything yet. I'm hoping by end of next week. When does "early February" become mid-Feb? Lol. From scourimg old reddit posts I've found that holds found out typically between Jan 31 and Feb 15, so no help there.
@pleasetakemenow: thank you!
@pleasetakemenow: so I guess todays date change would be considered my UR? Since is the first date change since it went complete in dec?
16:52
@Dazzlingpromise625: I think it's usually two changes after your complete date. so you'd be UR1 now
Thank you all so much!
yeah I think so
still no status change since complete 12/1, is it ever appropriate to email adcomm to ask whats up?
my complete-UR1 took a month and 20 days, so if you take out the holidays, it seems correct Siren, I wouldn't email personally

Got put on hold early January and status checker says “we expect a decision to be rendered early February” but still haven’t heard anything. Anyone else with me?
