I meant that you're one of the few with an official mail from the committee, they kind of handed me a closed envelope underneath a coffee table. I'll have to wait until the first week of February to see if it's all true.

but I think its not fair. most of the Universities set an earlier deadline for International students than domestic. if committee wants to process domestics first why they don't change the deadlines???

Look at Cornell's Dec. 15th deadline for example (for everyone). I am pretty sure that they do not review apps over Christmas/New year, yet, they have an early deadline. By beginning Dec., they know that most students are finishing up their Fall semester, yet they want us to get the apps in at that time. Fodder for thought, I say. I hope it doesn't sound too much like a conspiracy theory
