I took a look at the previous few years' threads and found a couple of "patterns," if you will:

2012 - 2014, status changes came all on Wednesdays, generally in first half of April. In every cycle, acceptances would roll out by the following Tuesday. So some movement = less than 1 week until letters arrived, or backdoor worked.

2015 - 2016 were a little weirder. There were no status changes (AKA no "dates" were added to status checker), but the address/contact info lines were updated (i.e. from Apt. to Apartment, or "Both" to "Full-Time") less than one week before acceptances came out. In 2015, addresses changed on a Thursday (4/2), and 2016 on a Friday (4/15). Backdoor worked the following Wednesdays.

Based on these numbers, we'll hopefully see some movement this week, which will indicate that decisions will come out next week. Fingers crossed!

BACK DOOR IN. SO RELIEVED.

No application status change.

Can anybody else confirm this? There has been a false alarm post in previous years as well.

Backdoor didn't work for me. Seems like that account was created at 2:01 then posted at 2:04. They haven't posted anything else. A little fishy, I'm not stressing over it until others/school confirms.

Back door still didn't work here. Pretty decent numbers. Back door has sometimes opened in waves in past years too, but idk. Anyone else confirm?

No back door and no status update for me. I am not buying it.


In the past it seems like they all happen at once.

Whoever posted is a troll. Makes no sense. No updates on application as in previous years, no other confirmed backdoor access, and as someone else stated the account was created w/in three minutes of posting...

Was there always a "Mailings" box?

Yep, we've got to buckle in. Probably best to keep up the drive to study for finals, for now anyway!

Checking in:

TT
3.76
School doesn't release rankings but in past years would be 5% ish

What is this "backdoor" stuff? Also, what other schools are you interested in applying to?

As I understand it, your acceptance will be entered into GULC's "system" a few days+ before decisions are actually released. As such, if you go to the admitted students page, enter your last name and email address to request a username/password, you'll know you've been accepted if it recognizes your info and sends you the logon credentials (I think, can't speak from experience). Hopefully that makes sense! It's kind of a weird workaround.

Also, stats:

TT, no rank or GPA. The only thing I'm going off besides raw grades is the fact that GULC has accepted transfers from my school in each of the past several years.

We have honorifics instead of the A-F scale, and they don't correspond to any numerical value.

I may explode if not. Perhaps they really want to ensure we study for finals instead of taking it easy knowing that we're in.

Just wondering, last year GULC actually sent out a decision email (backdoor worked 04/20) because some deadline was coming up. Does anyone know what deadline that was? was it the deposit deadline?

I've read that they have a deposit deadline around May 1 so it might have been that

Well I guess that makes sense. Hopefully everything comes out this week...

Based on last years posts, backdoor should start working today for those who are accepted.

Has anybody had an address change yet?

No address change. Backdoor not working for me (yet, hopefully).
