The Waiting is the Hardest Part

I do not think that Tom Petty has a graduate degree, however the chorus to his song “The Waiting” is appropriate this time of year.  The lyrics to the first chorus are:

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part

I know that waiting to hear of an admission decision is hard.  Believe it or not, it’s hard for me too.  I would love to be done with the review process just as much as everyone would like to get an email from us.   As I have said before though, the coordination involved requires that we take a bit more time with some files than others.

I am happy to say that we have hit the 81% mark in terms of decisions being sent out.  This does mean that we still have a sizable chunk of files that we are working on.

One major piece of advice if you are still waiting is this – do not panic.  Do not read anything into receiving a decision a bit late.  It has to do with the internal process we use, not the applicants being reviewed.  So I ask you to have faith that we are working as quickly as we can, taking decisions to heart, and we will reveal your card soon if you have yet to hear.
