I sent American my app on Oct. 31st. They didn't request my LSDAS report until Dec. 10th. And a few weeks ago, when I emailed them to ask if my app was complete, they told me they would be mailing me a blue postcard when it went to committee.
So has anyone gotten this fabled blue postcard? If you have, how long soon after did your decision arrive? How long did they take to send the card to you once they had requested your report?

So I've heard a lot of stuff about Hastings such as rampant book hiding, people getting bullied, and other such craziness. Is this true? Can anyone verify? Will I get beat up if I end up there? I really like the Bay Area but this stuff about the school is making me think twice about attending if I am accepted.

any thoughts or info about hastings? rep in the area, facilities, students? also i'm pretty much interested in PI work. any idea about that? i'm from the east coast and would really like to move to the bay area. is it worth it to pay out of state tuition? please help this confused easterner in his attempts to escape the cold.
funny that i haven't even heard back from them yet, but just wondering about this stuff. also would it be worth it to go there over, say, emory or william and mary?
any help woudl be great. thanks!
