Too many date changes, mine changed from 12/05 to 12/06 to 12/07.

If I have to speculate, there might be more scrutiny/discussion for borderline candidates, to decide between WL or Ding. :?

Video essay was introduced last year only, and there were many technical issues. Some folks were not able to submit till weeks later. In nutshell, impact of video essay date change can't be gauged from last year's thread.

I've had the same changes. I think this is completely random now. I doubt they would be viewing these essays on 3 consecutive days and specially on a weekend.

To add to the randomness and one more data point for speculation - my video date has not changed ever since Oct 28, a day BEFORE I received the waiver. And I have not received an interview invite after that. Appears they had no doubts dinging me! Though, it's hard to accept I was so bad in the video they couldn't look at me again :wink:

Well my date hasn't changed for a couple weeks, so I'm hoping that means acceptance. But let's be honest this is all wishful thinking. No one has any idea!

Mine didn't change from last update on 11/19.. For our theory to be credible, both of us should get through! :gl
:btw we are not here to verify our theory after 17th right?!
Any ideas to check our theory before the 17th? :stupid
Updates from waived friends are the most important data points!

Hahaha the levels of speculation here is amusing. :lol: :lol: :lol:

The date changes whenever they open your online record (for whatever reasons). Everytime I or my friends have written to them with an update about our application (post submission), the date changes. In their own words "we have added this update to your application." ..I doubt they are watching the videos those many times.

Btw, did anyone with a waiver receive an interview invite yet?

Well at least it confirms that they are looking at the application on those dates. As I have not send any update post interview.

Yes, this is a good way to kill time :-D :-D But you agree a date change means they are opening the applications? That is reason enough to speculate :-D :-D

No invite yet for anyone waived that I know. They have not even opened my application since time immemorial :( :(

Wasn't keeping track over the weekend but my date also changed for the first time in awhile. Changed a few times after my interview and was sitting at 11/17 until I looked today and I'm at 12/7 with the rest of you. Really hoping its a good thing.

Date has changed to 12/07. No interview invite yet. Seems like a stretch that they would conduct interviews the week before decisions are to be announced - but one can dream, right? :wink:

I find it hard to understand that why video date changed more than twice for only some of us. Mine changed only twice: from 1st Oct to 24th Oct and then from 24th Oct to 16th Oct.
Is it entirely random? Highly doubt it. Or, is there some intriguing design behind it? Donno.. In other words, all I know is that.. I know nothing!
God, This is killing me!

I've been lurking for a bit but finally made an account to say that the speculation over the dates in this thread has been the highlight of my waiting. :lol: The adcoms are probably having a great laugh at our descent into madness.

For what it's worth my dates changed from end of October, to 11/17, to 12/7....

If the date changes mean anything we are in the same boat (same date changes). Not sure which boat we are in, though, lol! I guess we'll find out next week.

Ditto - mine changed to 12/08 as well. Could be a glitch, but I'm sure this is also a period of heavy application review before final decisions are made. Still think the date changes are likely a result of our applications being accessed / updated.

"Everytime"? What are you and your friends constantly submitting??

Same here. If at all these date changes are not random (and there are high chances that they are random), it would mean they are evaluating borderline candidates who they are unsure of. I would consider a non changing time stamp as a positive thing here.
