Don't feel too bad.  My application was in review since 12/3 and just went to decision on Wednesday (1/2).
John Dewey on standardized tests:

"It reminds me of how we weighed pigs on my grandfather's farm.  You lay a board over a fence, put the pig on one end and pile rocks on the other.  Then you guess how much the rocks weigh."

I did manage to call the Admissions Office today to receive word of my decision over the phone.  I am leaving the country tomorrow for an extended period of time, so Admissions was nice enough to tell me over the phone...that I was denied.  Apparently they do start rejections this early!  Best of luck to everyone else.  I went to Illinois for undergrad and loved every minute of it!

It's funny how when rejection season starts angry non-URMs hijack threads to gripe about black people stealing their seats. As was stated in the UCLA wait list thread, take the AA debate to the proper forum so that people who don't want to hear the product of your bruised ego can read threads in peace.
