    19th doesnt seem reasonable... that means ppl like me from west coast canada wont get it till like the 21st? in that case, they might as well make it a christmas present and make it the 24th,

    It'd better not be the 19th. That's too close to Christmas. I don't want to be depressed so close to Christmas.

    Yeah...I don't plan to start the other apps until after I get that decision.

    Supposedly. It think they say you can call if you don't receive notification by that date, but I may be mistaken (ilcapo or Princetonwannabe will correct me on this if I'm wrong).

    I think ilcapo's Dec. 10th postmark date seems likely, so if I'm accepted, I should receive notification by the 15th.

    My sister got hers December 13th in NJ 2 years ago. Hopefully, ours will be about the same this year.

    If its anything like the process at MIT;

    then the applications are read by two or three readers in Nov; they make a summary of the entire app; then comittee meetings start in Dec, when they discuss the summaries/apps.

    MIT has a very different admssions process than the other top schools. Every application gets a faculty read, and faculty are heavily involved in decisions. Places like Princeton forward applications to academic departments if they think a student is outstanding in that area and the faculty is interested in recruiting them. The problem with this system is that the admissions office decides which apps get forwarded, so faculty does not always have a chance to have input on students they may be very interested in.
