Anyone apply a few weeks ago and not receive an email saying all materials are in?

I'm in the same boat. Sent an email to the admissions office asking if this was normal - I'll update this post if/when they respond!

YLS responded! "We are still working on fixing our system. You should receive an email in the next few days about our application." Looks like it's a technical issue.

I greatly appreciate you taking the time to ask about this. I was concerned! After they receive the materials I don't think they have use a status checker?

I think so, yea!

From a 2010 Ask Asha post:

"...it's probably worthwhile giving a more lucid explanation for why status checks don't jive with our admissions process. Simply put, we only have two statuses (statii?) for applicants: Under Review and [insert your final decision here]. I've detailed how our admissions process works elsewhere, but suffice it to say that if you haven't heard from us, your file is in the pipeline somewhere, being read by someone (a.k.a. Under Review). We can't give more detail than that, so a call or email really just results in frustration for all parties involved since we don't have much to tell you."

It seems that it's resolved! This week there was an "application received" email & then two days later an "application complete" email.

Any updates from people who applied? I'm applying this fall and am interested in seeing how things went for y'all.

I know someone who's been accepted, so if you haven't heard back yet, you probably will soon.
