different status?

I seem to have a different status than what most have posted. mine changed a few days ago to "We have received and are currently reviewing your application. We recommend you check here occasionally for an update on the status of your application.'
does anyone else have that and what do you think it means?

    It is really hard to guess what this status means... but I can say that my S had this status and several of the other statuses before he finally received his USC acceptance packet in the mail. So certainly do not despair!

    thanks! do you remember how long after he got that status he received his acceptance?

    yorkiemom - did your son ever have the fall grades status? :/

    I don't remember exactly. But since I only started looking at the statuses about a week or so before the "acted on" status, it would have been a few days at most. Please remember that the statuses indicate a certain point in the progress of your application files. We really don't know WAHT they means specifically. Be as patient as possible... I know that it isn't easy to wait!

    Dream, I don't believe that he ever had the fall grades status- but I can't be sure. One thing to think about is this: Status changes may occur when you aren't checking them. I was only checking them every day or two- not as frequently as some folks. They may have changed from A to B to C and then back to B, etc and I may have not seen all of them. I didn't even know about checking them until I came onto this CC forum. Otherwise I would have been even more content to "be in the dark" so to speak...

    Hoping the very best for you!

    Thanks for the help! Judging by last year's threads "fall grades" is just sort of a limbo.
