    I'm not sure whether AMC calls, emails, or snail mails it, but we should find out today (or this week).

    I interviewed the very first day that interviews were offered.

    Keeping fingers crossed... :luck:

    MSAR says that AMC's acceptances are notified today, December 1, 2005.

    Albany waits to get a certain number of apps in before deciding cut-off scores etc. When I called right before Thanskgiving, admissions said that they expected to reach that number this week and will start accepting accordingly. This was not a definite though. Perhaps try calling - they are very nice there!

    If this is true that Albany is notifying today - how about making this the AMC official acceptance thread...
    I need to know when to start getting depressed!

    i called them last week because they told us (oct. interviewees) we'd hear by thanksgiving. they said they were a tiny bit behind and they'd tell us by this week. but there is a friggin storm today and i'm afraid the mailman won't make it! since they're supposed to have made decisions by now (sort of) do you think we can just call for a status check?

    called today as I couldn't wait - they said they haven't sent anything today - but maybe tomorrow and definitely by next week. They send a short email and a packet in the snail mail. Fingers crossed!

    i interviewed 10-27 and they said we'd find out first week of december. is that this week or next week i don't know?? :)

    update: i just called and the woman said everyone who's interviewed so far will find out their status by late tommorrow or early next week...these were her exact words.

    from what I remember, being accepted or being put off for further consideration people receive notification via email and people who are rejected receive notification via snail mail. i could be wrong though.

    I just interviewed there this afternoon. They said that rejections will go out in the regular mail, everything else via email. You all should hear something really soon, she told us we'd be notified within 10-15 days!

    I liked Albany when I interviewed there on 11-2. The school was kind of small though. I hope we all hear back soon from Albany.

    So I'm guessing since people are getting emails now, that if you DO NOT receive one, you got waitlisted/rejected?!

    I'm guessing that since waitlists get email too, that if your inbox is empty (like mine) you get rejected... have a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach right now

    scneuro and goose - I don't suppose you could post the time your email was sent could you? If they sent out a simultaneous email to everyone who was accepted, I don't want to be checking my email every ten seconds all day and wanting to cry each time...

    thanks and congratulations!

    no...so you can understand why I am little jumpy right now! They said that they would let me know in 6-8 weeks - I guess that's the standard response they give. I am guessing that if I am accepted, I will hear pretty soon from now (interviewed 3 weeks and 1 day ago!)

    Thanks for posting the time!

    I called them up and told them I was not getting any work done because I am checkng my email every few minutes. They said they have to send out the emails in batches, and that if I don't get an email to call back later this afternoon then someone can tell me my status.
    It will be fun to hear them try to sound sympathetic while telling me that my future dreams are unattainable!

    yeah, it's hard to work when you are refreshing every 3 seconds and you are mad/sad. i bet they went out to lunch and are enjoying their friday afternoon while i'm sitting at the edge of my seat.

    I just called and was informed that I was put in the "Under Consideration" pile, which means that they are considering me for a spot on their waitlist, and that if their acceptance rate is too low, then they will go to that pile to accept people before May/June.

    Awesome.

    i called an hour ago and was told to be patient, that they were having some technical difficulties, and i should probably be receiving an email sometime "later this afternoon." really not sure what this means. i'll call them back around 5ish est if i don't receive anything.

    I called too - "under consideration"... Why do they lie? They mean "you suck - we won't accept you unless we really have to". Oh well - top temperature in Albany today is 38 degrees, too cold for me - I'm going to go outside and sit in the California sunshine and cry.

    i called and the lady pulled up my status then said that the other woman who was sending the emails stepped out and to call back later to hear my status...what??? did she just not want to be the one to tell me i was rejected? how confusing.

    anyway, she also alluded to technical problems w/ the emails so we'll see what the rest of the afternoon holds.

    Ok, so I think we're all talking to the same lady cause I got the same response...but when she told me about the "technical problems" I just said straight up "Did I get rejected? It's ok, you can tell me!" Then she told me I was "under consideration," which as far as I can tell means this....my application (and the rest of the under considerations) now sits in limbo until June at which point they'll turn this pool of apps into a waitlist from which they'll pull people IF they need to...but we won't hear anything until June

    So, yeah, it's not sounding too good. :( :( :(

    Yup, called back, under consideration too.

    Congrats to all who got the good word today! It's ok for me, I was 90% sure I was gonna go instate over Albany for $$ alone, but still def not the best feeling, huh?

    Seriously though, i remember them saying that Albany almost always pulls off well over half to all their waitlist. lots of hope still for all you guys if you are really set on albany!

    oh and no email, so for those w/ empty mailboxes it isnt for sure rejection!

    Being under consideration isn't bad. I called today and they told me I was rejected flat out :mad: My first post-interview rejection hurts, especially because I have no acceptances! This whole thing just isn't cool :thumbdown:

    I haven't received an email yet - here's hoping that it was all a big mistake and they are just figuring out how much scholarship money they want to offer us!

    I just called Albany and guess what, I am under consideration also. They have not made up their waitlist yet. Those who are under consideration will be placed onto a waitlist at a later time (June I believe). The waitlist order is dependent on your overall ranking by the Adcom. Good luck to all.

    hey guys:

    I was placed on under consideration last year and I thought I would have to wait until May to be pulled off. It turned out I was accepted off the UC batch around March. I wouldn't count yourself out. The UC list seems to move a lot. Good luck.
