Ok , first of all let me tell you that I ma the one who have teased the forum a lot about this thing. FINALLY I am 100 % sure that this doesnt mean anything. I have got responses from both colors in the form of acknowledgements and rejections. But all said they received my application. So just chill.

I think this will definitely put your mind at ease: it's really ok no matter what the color is. I can definitely testify to that because I received interviews from both purple and black-colored programs. It's fine.

The only thing that I noticed is that, when in black, it looks like the program already has access to the MSPE. All purple programs say "MSPE Retrieved but not viewable until October 1 release".

Just sit back and relax and wait for the interviews to pour in. Hopefully Good luck!

This was addressed in another forum by a PD. Some programs have a newer system that automatically update documents as they are provided, while another system only provides the documents on the demand.

Based upon the dates, the black seems to be automated and the purple seems to be on demand. Other than that it means nothing.
