well apparently some of you have last names that come early in the alphabet - or if not significantly early then at least before some of the people that have already received their updates, which somewhat discredits the alphabetical theory.

maybe there is just a huge randomly ordered stack of "reservists" that they have to go through and we are at the bottom somewhere.

maybe we are in the ambiguous pile, i.e. no decision could have been made as to rejection / wait list status the frist go around and we are waiting for a files to be looked at again.

or maybe we are being kept "on-deck", which is to say that we are in group that will be used to quickly reinforce the class once it starts dwindling. presumably it's more cost effective to send one update via mail then two (from waiting list to accepted). ok, this is a reach, i know.

or maybe i'm thinking about this too much, yeah, that sounds about right

I emailed this morning and they replied pretty quickly. They said they send out a decision to me last Thursday and that I should get it shortly. Kinda sucks cause I'm leaving to got to NY for 5 weeks today.

Maybe you guys were accepted?

I mean I see some of the numbers you folks have and they are so impressive that I am not sure why they would have problems putting you on the wait list. So then why the hold up?

It seems like they would call for that. Or at least e-mail.

Well I hope that you some of you guys were offerred acceptances because that means that the wait list is actually something of value and that there are less people in front of me for a spot.
