Don't worry. People have made a lot bigger mistakes than this and still gotten in to top programs, trust me!

Do not contact them. They probably will not notice. They read the materials VERY quickly.

Good luck!

Help !
A quick question : I submitted my application about 10 days back and looking over it again today realised that I've entered the wrong dates of participation for one of my undergrad extracurriculars (says 2009 instead of 2010). Should I write to the admissions committee about this or just let it be ?

Yeah I did. I'm not expecting anything until the end of the month based everyone else's timeline.

I had clients who submitted earlier and had a 5-week wait before getting an interview invite. The closer it gets to the ED deadline, the more people submit, so I would think that while you COULD hear in 4 weeks... it could be up to 6 since they may have gotten slammed at the deadline.

Good luck!

How many adcoms do they have reviewing? And how many apps does each get through in a day? Just curious at the numbers cause even with only say 10 admissions people doing like 15 a day you're at 750 per week. Don't get how it takes them 6 weeks if they supposedly breeze through everyone's app...

Well, each application gets reviewed by at least 2 members, so you should cut that 750 number in half in terms of how many applications come to an interview decision/ week. On top of that, I've heard it takes 20-30 min/ read through, so 15 a day per member assumes 7-8 hours just spent on initial read throughs. They also spend time on admission decision reviews and other misc. things like recruiting events, random inquiries etc..

I could be off, though. But just my thoughts

You are absolutely right -- they are not sitting there all day every day ONLY reading applications! They're also dealing with setting people up with alums for interviews, reassigning people whose alums can't meet, answering a ton of questions every day via email and phone, etc., etc.

And, you know, they have lives, too! ; )

Good luck to all!
