I applied for spring transfer to Florida State. My app got there Oct 31, everything else trickled in. Last week (Nov 9 Thursday afternoon, about 4pm) I called them and asked my status. They pulled the file, saw everything was in so she said she would pull it out and send it to comittee 'next week' (they were closed Friday Nov 10 for Veteran's Day).
So in theory it went to committee on Mon or Tuesday, realistically, right?
So today I call them (Nov 16, Thursday) to ask status since the status checker was showing I was still missing 2 letters of rec (even though I KNEW they had them.. I just wanted an excuse to call them). So she pulls my file, says they have them, it was a mistake and oh by the way, I went to decision. Letter was mailed out today. Of course, no hints on the phone as to what that decision was...
So my question is... with SUCH a FAST turnaround, is that generally a good thing or a bad thing? COnsidering spring transfer season, rolling admissions, complete deadline is Dec 1st, etc.
Also, do they ever email the decision or is it entirely by mail? (my mail man is not very reliable.. just today I got the viewbook in the mail...postmarked Nov 7th!)
Anyway, anyone care to humour me while I obsess until the letter gets here?
