I applied for NASS about 3 weeks after the application was released. I still haven't heard anything back. I know that they will mail notifications by May 1, but what percentage of notifications mailed out at the last minute are actually good news? I assume that most acceptances were mailed rather quickly and only the denials are held off until the end. Is this assumption fair? I'm just trying to get a feel for how high my hopes should be when I do finally receive an acceptance/denial.
