Seriously I can not take the suspense. Can I call and ask my status? Would they tell me if I was denied or waitlisted over the phone?

I'm still waiting too but I live 10 minuntes away. I figure that if I come home to nothing on the 30th (which is when it was promised by), then I will walk in on May 1st. I don't think they can tell you over the phone but possibly in person.
Not even close to deciding:
USC - 60K
GW - nothing yet
GTown - Priority Wait List
No word from Cornell

So adcomms will, others won't.  And it can depend on which day you happen to call.  They probably have a policy of not providing decisions over the phone, but adherence is obviously elective.

Yay! My rejection letter came today :-)

(I've never been so happy about being rejected in my life, and from my alma mater too!)

Gah, I just realized that I forgot to sign my name, as in my signature, on my LOCI. Poop. I guess that's not too big a deal.

Finally broke down and called the admissions office today...rejection.  Curses.

WAITLIST! So pitifully happy.

I have already sent a LOCI and visited. Do people think that additional letters of rec will help or know how Stanford's wait list works?

I got waitlisted also - I'll have to dream up a LOCI.  Oh well, better than a rejection.

I just got in off the waitlist and I have a week to make a decision. No LOCI btw, so I was really surprised by the call.

OMG - this is throwing everything into chaos. I already signed a lease on an apartment in Boston with two really good friends, so the largest factor holding me back is the idea of screwing them over last minute. Ugh.
