Bear, I called them yesterday because my last weeks mail completely vanished due to the incompetence of my local post office. I gave them my sob story and asked her that if a decision had been sent out, that they should probably mail it out again. The woman was very nice and told me that don't worry, my application (which was complete on 11/1, the bastards) hadn't even gone to committee yet.
I have a feeling it's in the "Eh, I doubt it pile" (3.91,165), but it was good get a little update. She said the vast majority of applications haven't been reviewed yet.
