I am not sure if this will ruin anyone's day, but I was waitlisted and the letter said they were done sending out acceptances...who knows if this is really the case though

That's good to know, if it's really true.
 
I would have only been lukewarm about an acceptance this late in the game, a waitlist would warrant a nice cheery K.M.A.

If that's the best they're issuing at this point, I can officially cross them off my list.

Thanks for the info.

I'm going to call tomorrow and see what's going on. Or, at least, that's what I keep telling myself.....

as i've understood what's been going on based on xoxo: applicant A calls S.  S says they're done with acceptances.  applicant B calls S.  S says there's a small group of applications still left that may be considered for acceptance.  applicant B call S again to clarify conflicting info.  S says the best to hope for at this point is a waitlist or ding.  but, who knows?

yeah, apparently.  although if i were the dean of admissions, i'd be pissed if conflicting info were going out so willy nilly, especially at this point in the game.  i would've figured people who answered phones would have canned answers for the kinds of questions that are asked year after year.
