So is getting a letter earlier more indicitive of an acceptence? I called loyola la today to  ask about financial aid junk, just for kicks i asked when i should expect a decision letter thinking the secretary would give me the between now and May spiel. the front desk lady asked for my name and ssn. she put me on hold for a bit, and when she returned she said ,'2 weeks or less.' is she patronizing me? is this a good sign? or are they in a hurry to reject me? did i bring some unneccessary attention to my file? any thoughts would be nice.

It probably means your file is in committee. You will be notified when they make a decision in 2 weeks or less which seems to be typical once a file goes to committee.

well i think the date of the admission is meaningless now. they reject ppl on a rolling basis just like they do acceptences.
