mine went to "decision mailed" - I'm guessing that was a rejection? Top 5% at T40.

Yeah, seems to be the case for me as well.  Mine now reads "Decision Pending" retroactively dated to 5/12 and also "Decision Mailed - Please wait 10 days"

From reports here, it looks like top 3-5% from schools ranked 40 or better seem to be the cutoff.  Anyone accepted fall outside that description?

I guess I don't know... did you get your letter already?  What is a hold?

I received mine today.  It is a deferral to regular decision.

HAHAHAHA I find that hilarious since they insisted all along that they weren't going to do deferrals.  Maybe mine will be a deferral too. Hilarious.

I kind of knew there would be deferrals. The people who went "decision pending" and didn't later receive a call at the same time other people who went "decision pending" but received a call had to have been different from the people who had blank statuses for the night.

Does that make any sense?

Anyways, I conjectured that there were two possibilities (they aren't mutually exclusive): The Blank Status People were a group through which the admissions committee wanted to comb for one or two more students to accept; or the admissions committee planned to defer them. I think I'm a deferral, though I won't be home for a while so I can't verify.
