interesting. but I guess good to know

Oh my god, it just keeps getting worse. "Santos proposed to teen boyfriend days before finalizing divorce with wife"
19:44
Totally meant to send this in general
@The-MilkMan: I'm down to talk about the George Santos fiasco in here haha
@CulturedSquirrel: oops lol well you get the gist bascially they are behind lmao

@mushroomfairy: what did the rest of their email say to you? I think it got cut off when you copied and pasted it. It was saying how the reviewers are "only now...." Just wondering. Thx.

looks like we got 1 today
heartbreaking to see someone who submitted in December get their decision before us who submitted in Oct/Nov lol
Ya I'm over it
16:27
Over a month after admission, finally got my acceptance packet today! I think they are just moving very slowly in general.

*cries in september*

@PurpleCarrot: what was in the packet? Also congrats for getting in!
16:44
Thank you! Sadly, no swag to report as with some other schools. Just an admitted students brochure, an admission letter, info on accessing the portal to pay deposits, and a scholarship letter.

nice!!

I'm looking at all of these people on here and LSA talking about how they applied in December and already got their decision and I'm of the opinion that the adcomms is working backwards lol.
I think it's more like 52 card pickup
@WiredPinkLady: September? oof. you should be in the big mad chat lol

omg. my people.

February has got to bring some more
Another admit who went UR in Dec with high stats. Looks like maybe they're looking over the highest stat applicants first, which makes sense. Our day will come! Haha

im going to put in my deposits and sign my fall lease before i hear anything from these knitwits
Ya I won't have time to take off work and visit pretty soon. Need to find housing and save money

I do wonder how these "late" admissions will affect classes and seat deposits. How many students would have chosen USD if they gave their decision in Dec rather than February over a school that gave their decision in November. We'll never know, obviously, but if I was wishy washy about USD it would turn me off 100%. Unfortunately, it's one of the closest schools to where I live so I have to wait it out.
It definitely might affect their numbers. I feel bad that some people need to still arrange housing and haven't gotten answers yet. I'm not moving so I only applied to the two schools in SD
Someone was waitlisted today. It gives me hope that decisions are coming a little more frequently
WiredPinkLady
10:54
same. And I think after tomorrow we'll see more movement too
