Types of application Statuses?

So since I've applied to Penn State, my application status has varied to multiple statements when I check mypennstate.

I've been wondering, if certain statuses mean you're closer to a decision? For example on Friday, it had my status as "Your application is being reviewed, your transcripts etc are are, thank you for submitting" .

Today, my status changed to "Your application is complete, all of your required materials are here, and we are reviewing your credentials. A decision will be available here as soon as one is made.".

Does this change mean anything in terms of time of notification? Like, am I closer to finding out or something else?

If anyone had any idea or knows about this, it'd be nice to know, thanks.

    I had that same message for about two weeks. Then I was accepted. So this may be the last status you get before your decision comes in. good luck!

    your last status was my second to last status so idk =/ right now it's "Your application has been received and is being reviewed. Thank you for applying to Penn State."

    I have concerns about how accurate the messages are.

    DS's status still shows ""We've received it....may require more info...will contact you...." - but we've been told by 2 people (undergrad and honors college folks) this week that his application is complete and is being reviewed.
