It’s March 1, which means we’re less than a month from decision release, and the focus is turning toward clean up. Today’s the final deadline for the MIB and LLM programs, and there’s a scramble on to read any application for any of the programs that hasn’t been reviewed yet. The different Admissions Committees are meeting for the last time(s), and there’s a growing parade of boxes around the office, in which files are placed according to their final admit/deny/waitlist destiny.
I’d like to tell you that starting the clean-up phase means we’re close to releasing decisions but, alas, this will take us a while. Still, until this morning, there were several mountains of applications on my desk, and now I’m down to three little rubber-banded clusters. I see many hours of work ahead for all of us, probably including some time around the office this weekend. But we’ve been here before and step-by-step, everything will come together.
Later this week, I’ll start describing the different decision options, so that you’ll be able to interpret your decision letter. Meanwhile, please double-check that you can access your GAMS account. As I described last week, it’s an important detail to check off your list.
