If the status of my letter of recommendation says "waived", does this mean they still received the letters?
When filling out their supplemental application, I waived my right to access the letters of recommendation. I'm wondering if the status "waived" represents that?
 
Did anyone else get the email this morning that they are still working on application decisions?

“This email is to let you know that your application is still with the College of Dental Medicine Admissions Committee.

Due to the volume of applications we receive, it is difficult to predict how long it may take for the Admissions Committee to consider and reach a decision on any given application. We will certainly notify you when there is any change in your application status. You can also monitor the status of your application at any time by logging into your Application Status Page.

In the meantime, please feel free to contact us if you have questions. Thank you for your patience and interest in WesternU’s College of Dental Medicine!”
