Application has gone into "Pending Review". Any idea how long until I'll get a definite response?

Sounds like your file is not yet actually being reviewed. Last year there was a "Referred to Admissions Committee" status, which came before a decision. You could be there for a long time; there's no way to tell.

I was understanding at first given the holistic approach they take, but really, the personal statement questions for Windsor only provided for very short responses so I'm not sure what is taking so long. It seems like they are behind in comparison to the other schools. They have told some people that it was an issue with OLSAS but I think that excuse has exhausted its merits by now.

It honestly means very little. I've had this status for a while. They are taking their time with each application. It probably just means we are going to look at your app soon(ish).

just out of curiosity for those who have been accepted did your status say under review? or pending review. Mine says pending review not sure if that means, my application is going to be looked at or is looked at... anxiety waiting your feedback would be helpful :)
