I also sent my applications out in October. I have applied to schools mostly in the midwest. I have heard from two schools sofar. One rejection letter and one acceptance letter. You may want to ask the school when they begin the decision making process. Even though many say rolling admissions and start accepting applications in September, many do not even begin the process until December or January. I was told this by the other three schools I am waiting to hear back from. Hope this helps some.
