I feel your pain.  My apps were complete by early December and I have yet to hear back from several schools.  This is especially irritating for those schools that I applied to that do not get near as many applications as other schools.  What have they been doing?  Oh yeah, I did not apply to Colorado, but needed to take the opportunity to comment.  To hell with this process!!!

What are your guys' numbers?  Are you in-state or out-of-state?

(I should preface this with I only waited about a month/month and a half to get notice.  I applied/completed in December and heard from them the end of January)

I am a in state, 3.2, 160 MS in sciences.
I knew I was bordserline, but I know they don't get a bunch of scientists, so I thought I would be a better candidate....oh well, I'm going elsewhere.

I think they got a lot of science people - me 3.4, 164 and MS in comp sci.

At the admitted student's day (a few weeks ago), some people had gotten letters within a week before it.  I think their deadline for deposits just happened so more spots might be opening too.

mine were 168/3.07 from top 5 LAC, 5 yrs WE. out of state. at this point, i wouldn't attend, i'm just annoyed since i paid them the fee and feel i have a right to a decision. schools that received 3 times as many apps (gtown, columbia) got back to me 8 or more weeks ago.

That's my feeling on the matter.  I finally withdrew at a few schools for "karma reasons" :) but I am leaving my apps open at 2 others that I probably will not attend--because I paid good money for them to review my application!

jas9999 - you might want to call them.  Have you not received anything from them at all?
