Santa Clara has been my top choice since I applied in October, but I haven't heard anything until I got an e-mail today which said this.

I just wanted to update you on your application to Santa Clara Law School since you’ve not heard anything lately.
No decision has been made on your file at this time, but we hope to have a decision to you by the end of April. At that time you will either be admitted or be placed on a wait-list. If you are placed on the wait-list you will receive additional information at that time.
We do not need any additional information. It is not necessary to call us for an update since we are unable to give information over the telephone.
We realize that your file has been complete for some time, and we know that you are anxiously waiting to hear from us. Also, we do understand that other schools may have given you their decisions by now. Reading and evaluating almost 4500 applications is a time consuming activity. The faculty admissions committee is working hard to put together an outstanding entering class based on all the information applicants provide – not just numbers.
We appreciate your patience.

The way I read it is I will either be admitted or waitlisted, but I am not sure what to make of it. Did anyone else get this letter? I am excited about possibly going there, but I don't want to get my hopes up to much. Anyways, I just wanted to see if anyone has ever received a letter like this and what ended up happening. Thanks for your help.
