i just want to clarify that if my "status date" changes it means there are changes coming to my application, for better or worse, relatively soon. does that sound right?
Honestly, I'm not sure, but it could be.
At minimum, it means someone picked up your application and looked through it. If you're still 'In Review' it might be a kind of inter-office, unofficial wait-list. That might mean it could still be a while. On the other hand, it's April already, so I'd imagine decisions have to be going out soon anyway, unless you're -really- on the bubble. LSN is kind of hard to interpret, but from last year it looks like all but one decision was made before May 1.
