I'm willing to be a lot of people are gonna be waiting for a while. My deadline to send in more stuff was just 3 days ago, so they probably wouldn't even be looking at it for a little while. That being said though I didn't end up sending them anything except my new grades.

I'm still waiting--my deadline to turn in extra materials was a month ago, and I sent extra grades and an essay. 

Not that I care much, I'm probably going to Michigan regardless.

it looks like the first of the two ppl who were accepted post deferral last yr (on lsn) heard around now.... and it looks like a lot of rejections went out around mid-end of april.... maybe they are waiting to see their yield post financial aid packages?

good luck to everyone still waiting

I'm wondering, did any of you out there who got hold letters and/or waitlist notifications and/or rejections apply January or later, or do they just not bother to tell you you're on hold unless you applied ED?

When I emailed and asked for a status update, they said that my app had gone to committee on March 20 (over a month after my complete date), and that it can take up to 8 weeks after that to get a decision...so i guess they're on time as far as their own timeline goes! But it seems like, at this point, are they even bothering to look at applications anymore? I was impressed by the speed of their email response, though--they answered me in like 2 hours!

I wish now that I had spent more time on Chicago's app., like written more essays. It just took me so damn long to get a personal statement that i could even live with, let alone feel good about. Does anyone think it's worth writing an additional essay even if i haven't heard anything?

Yeah, I applied in January and got a hold letter.  My complete date is the last date on LSN for which they've given out decisions, and that was way back in January.  I suppose they can afford to be slow, though. 

But I'm withdrawing, so that's one less person to compete with, I guess.

Well, it looks like you have a pretty decent alternative  :D

I applied before January, but after the ED deadline and I got the hold letter...still holding...

will we be hearing in the next week or should we deposit elsewhere?

I sent my additional essay in on March 22 and my file went back to committee April 12. They said I'll get a decision before my deposit deadlines, though now I'm not sure if I'll stick it out. I loved UVA so much and I know Chicago's got the better opportunities but they're not gonna give me any money and I'd probably be happier elsewhere.
