I am glad I do not have to sit home all day. Then I would for sure lose my mind. As far as the accuracy of the status checker I have talked to quite a few people lately who have found out about their acceptance thru the UGA status checker. I guess they are pretty good about updating their's. Plus, I am bored at work in front of a computer. Feeds the obsession.

Does anyone think they check if you are checking?


There was a post about this before. If they do, they either KNOW I am interested in their  school or are about to file a restraining order against me.

I'm in withdrawal because I'm in all my schools that had status checkers and the ones still pending have nothing.  What do I check now?  I hate this...

lol. Before I got into Hastings I swear I was checking at least hourly. Even after the status changed to decision I went back and checked a couple of times just to be sure. I've also been stuck on waiting for evaluation at Davis for months.

Worst...I have no e-mail access at work, and only 1 out of 14 schools that I applied to has online status checker.  No news for me until I get home after 7PM!

That is bad. But at least you do not have the ability to indulge is this unhealthy obsession!

Nah, it just means that I have an even more unhealthy obsession with OSU's status checker!

Well between email, online status checker, and snail mail I am a junkie I swear.

I bet just to make me feel like I've wasted my time, I get a snail mail acceptance/denial letter from my last few schools before my online status even changes.

Lewis and Clark was cool because I tried logging in to their admitted students page every day for a month, and it was almost shocking when finally, I didn't get the usually error message, and I was in! I didn't get anything in the mail for a week after that, so it's not completely crazy to use the status check.

I'd say that over twice per day is bordering on obsessive.

when the status checker is your home page instead of yahoo.....
