    ARe you talking about 10 business days? My gut feeling is that the earliest people usually get responses is about 2 weeks after the 15th, depending on how the weekends work out. For this particular month, I would be beginning to expect answers around the 30th, but more like May 3rd.

    I also have the feeling (not backed by going to look at older posts) that some of those early decisions calls/emails come to families that already have a DYS.

    Thanks. It does make sense that the early responses are for those with siblings who are DYS. Okay, I'm planning on breathing and not thinking about it for at least another week! smile

    He made it! We just received the acceptance email last night. Oh my gosh, what a huge relief to finally be done with the waiting. They didn't need any other information, but I'm still glad I taped him playing piano and talking about chess strategy. Mam is right, the video will be nice to have down the road.

    Thanks everyone for your support and words of encouragement. I appreciate all the feedback.

    So excited!!
