The auto-reply that I received stated that she's away until December 16th. To give you an idea, I submitted on September 1st and just heard back during the most recent round of offers on November 28th.
Yeah, just want to chime in and say I submitted in late October and am over the auto-admit but haven't heard back yet. It seems like all the people who have been accepted so far were at the "forwarded for review" phase before I even sent in my application. I think we can chill.
Contrarily, as I am not actually chill, do you happen to know when the director is on vacation until?
