I just called (around 12:30PM PST) - asked to check application status, the guy said sure, told him my name and last 4 digits of my SS, and he said that, "Applications had been sent to review a while back and the decisions have just been released, and I'm sorry to tell you that yours has been denied." I didn't have to push or anything.
He didn't sound peeved at all about my call, he was actually very nice
. So go ahead and call if you got the guts!! I'm glad to get all this waiting over with so I can make a decision as far as what I want to do.
