Last year's medians for all admits at this time during the cycle: 173.5 / 3.9 (112 data points)
This year's medians for all admits so far: 171 / 3.85 (67 data points)

I will not attempt to interpret these results.

Yeah I saw this too, my guess as to why the admits seem to have high stats is the self selection of people that post on lsn/tls.

IIRC, the first wave of committee review e-mails went out this week last year.

I promise not to post in here during business hours unless there is ACTUAL movement :)

I have been in review since 12/13 and im getting nervous, both of my stats are below the median, I have no work history. I know what the answer will be, I am getting antsy waiting for it.

*edit* and when the recruiter came to my UG she told me that my softs could not make up for my low grades :cry:

Yeah, I checked it about an hour before I received the email. I was complete and now it shows:

Current Status: A decision has been reached
Current Status Date: 1/21/2011

sorry bro but that's prob a WL/ding. in my experience, if one is admitted the status checker shows "A decision has been reached...Admitted!"

bad beat...hope for that WL e-mail and keep fighting.

Any thoughts on sending out a LOCI before you hear anything? Berkeley is #1 in my heart and hearing nothing since I went complete on 11/1 is literally killing me!

Although, I'm very happy to still feel like I have a little shot.

I've been UR since 10/26. My status checker date hasn't changed. Should I be glad that I haven't been dinged? I'm assuming I'm going to committee review at the very best.

You're already in committee review. And you should stand somewhere between jubilant and slightly grateful.
