    Has anyone gotten one yet by mail? I know someone said on another thread that they were going out on Friday from Thursday's adcom meeting...

    As far as I can tell, you stay in the pool for consideration at the following month's meeting. So unless you got a rejection letter, don't lose hope. You're still in the running. :luck:

    On a slightly related note, does anyone happen to know when Wash U's second look weekend is?

    i got my acceptance yesterday (sat) but I think I only saw one other person who has posted about getting in yesterday, so they could be just taking their sweet time

    bump! anyone else get happy news in the mail from wash u?

    also, anyone get a post-interview rejection or waitlist yet? just curious if they've started ruling people out post-interview or just throw them in to be reviewed over and over... :oops:

    Yeah, I've been kind of wondering the same thing. The interviewers present us at a smaller committee meeting first, before we move on to the whole adcom, right? So if you don't make it to the larger committee meeting, are you sent a rejection letter? Or does your application stay with the smaller committee for additional review later? Anyone know?

    Still haven't heard, do you guys think it would be inappropriate to call them? I was interviewed on Oct 18. This is painful.

    You don't need to call. It's the same process at most other schools. If you don't get an acceptance letter, that means they're still considering you. No one's holding on to your file just to torture you. And since WashU is sending acceptances via express mail, you pretty much know yes or no by the end of the weekend. If no, then you just have to wait until the next month's round. My boyfriend interviewed 2 cycles ago in october, didn't hear until february or so, and was placed on the wait list. Then he didn't get off of the list until the summer. So we've potentially got a long wait ahead.

    Now now, no need to be all rational and logical and patient... we like getting worked up for no reason. It's part of the fun...
