What does "under review" really mean?
« on: November 17, 2008, 10:14:12 PM »
My status checkers say that I am under review at two places: Minn and Penn. Does this mean I'll have a decision soon? Is this a good sign? Could you be "Under Review" for months?


Thanks.

Every school is different, but you can be "under review" for an extended amount of time.  It's a good sign in that you're complete and have been forwarded for consideration, but it doesn't necessarily mean a decision on your file is imminent.

It means: "Our status checker is going to become your master." Nothing more.
