I think many of the responders are pointing out the fact that early applications don't always mean early responses. Many factors contribute to a late application but if a school is slow to send out responses or they are sitting in a "maybe" pile somehwere, there is nothing that they can do besides post here for some peer comforting. I for one don't think the "where is my letter" chatter is too annoying. It's to be expected at this time of year. But that's what's so great about this board. If you don't like the topics, start a new one. Congradulations on your acceptace to Hofstra... Maybe I'll be seeing you there.
