There was a week long conference last week. Just about every dean or director of admissions was at it (I know because every waitlisted school I called told me the dean was at a conference in California).
I think there is another one this week but I spoke to a few deans in past day or two so I don't think everyone is at that conference.
In terms of delays, I'm sure it will slow down the process a little. Also, there are some schools that don't have second deposits due till June 15 and few that aren't due till July 1. I love the continued torture.....
One dean I talked to discretly mentioned to me that at the conference some deans had mentioned that they may be making changes to their classes. That's all she said. I don't know what it means and she didn't clarify, but my guess (and this may just be wishful thinking) is that some school are increasing the size of their classes a little.
Did y'all see the note in the Boston thread saying that there is a conference this week and this may delay decisions somewhat? Has anyone else heard anything about this?
