oh my goodness... i hope chunkylover53 is right   

more seat deposits than spots is terrible news   :'(

I got wait listed at a school who sent me mail saying they had more deposits than seats. The upsets me about it is that the school had sent me a fee waiver and I applied before their deadline!  >:(

After going through the application process with the school in question, I was happy I got wait listed. I didn't reply to the wait list and I really have no intention of attending an unfriendly school.

Still waiting on SMU too.  The only school now (not counting schools I've been waitlisted at).  They also told me that they should make a bunch of decisions by the end of the month.  Frankly I'm losing interest though.

I heard the same about SMU decisions being out by April 30th. I wanted to take a tour this month and they said they are not giving any personal tours until after April 30th b/c their admissions staff is working their a*ses off until then...

They should've been working their asses off back in March and February.

Amen to that- they better be working their tails off
Yes: Baylor ($$), Houston ($$), Texas Tech (not interested)
No: UCLA, Wash U St. Louis, CU, Fordham
Maybe: SMU (Waitlisted), Texas (Waitlisted), Wisconsin(on "hold") UIUC (Waitlisted, Withdrawn)

Just in case anyone cares I thought I would let y'all know that SMU is starting to send out acceptances. I have a friend who was deferred and got a voicemail this morning with the news.
