Same here. Although it is going to :cry: when they start giving out acceptances on a rolling basis!

Nah, based on the admittance threads, looks like this cycle is slower than last years. However, it seems odd that it is slower given that there's less applicants.

IMO schools are waitlisting and/or waiting for the feb scores because the applicant pool this cycle is horrible

Why are they torturing us like this???? Everyday, I live for my status checkers only to see the same current status day in and day out.

I need to go on vacation in a remote island with no internet access for a whole month to be able to stop this excruciating waiting game.

Less URM applicants/More lower stats. Digging deeper in the pot. Again, just a theory

Less apps more time to critically review each applicant?

I think it's more that there's more desire to sit around and see if they're going to get any better applicants.

I'm wondering though, does it just seem slow to us because we're actually going through it this time?
