Observations ... basically "no news"

Since that time, GRACE has picked up where it had left off at the end of January and has spent the past month reviewing relevant documents recently provided by Bob Jones University and conducting final interviews. Additionally, the team has also spent time reviewing a few additional complaints received in the past month. Due to the influx of new information and the inherent scheduling challenges created by the halted process, GRACE should be able to finalize the data collection phase of this independent investigation by the end of April. GRACE anticipates that it will then move into the final stage of drafting the final report sometime in early May. At this time, we are not in a position to estimate how long it will take the team to complete the final report. However, we will be sure to post an update once we can provide an estimate as to the date of completion

More observations:

  • "the inherent scheduling challenges created by the halted process". The process was halted by what ... a week!?
  • " we are not in a position to estimate how long it will take the team to complete the final report". Can't even give an estimate. Like an open-ended project. They wouldn't make it in business!

Pardon my cynicism, but I'm of the opinion that they (and others of a similar nature) are in the business of being relevant, not profitable.  If that be the case, they are doing fine by being open-ended and leading along those that are anxious for some juicy tidbit.  I would love to think they were in "business" to actually solve problems, but that's not selling with me yet.

More than a week

According to the BJU website the investigation was terminated on January 27 (http://www.bju.edu/about/answering-questions.php#Forward), and according to the GRACE update, they didn't agree to reinstate the contract until February 25. By my count, that's more than a week.

It was a month! Thanks
