It’s December 1st.
Many if not most of you are nervously awaiting decisions from Round 1 which are going to start happening as phone calls beginning as soon as next week (probably not this week, but we may be tracking things incorrectly and who knows?).
(Side note: If you get an incoming call from an “unknown” or “private” number in the next two weeks, or even any calls from different area codes, you may want to pick up! Don’t worry that they may be spammers. Pick up! It could be an admissions director with news of your admit!!!)
Whether or not you still have active applications, we kinda recommend that you start taking action for Round 2 right now.
There are many reasons for this!

Sure, it might end up being a useless time-waster — in fact we hope it ends up being wholly unnecessary! We hope your Round 1 applications turn into one or more admits!
But there’s no cost to starting the app and entering the data, except for your time. Seems like there is more potential upside to investing some hours in that task RIGHT NOW than there are negatives.
You’ll know for sure very soon if any of this is needed!! Staying busy in the interim seems like a smart thing to do.
Good luck as you navigate this difficult waiting period, BSers!!
