alright, just called the office and they told me that this year, like last year, instead of two batches of acceptances, there will be a single lump of decisions for EVERYONE being sent out mid-February. if i remember correctly, last year acceptances were sent out on feb. 14, and all the rest of the decisions were mailed through the 17th. damn! that means that i'm expecting to hear from nyu, stanford, columbia, and sinai all in that middle week of feb! goddamn that's intense! good luck y'all!
