I don't understand what's taking them so long to evaluate my application, because if they were to reject me, they could simply have rejected me long ago.

You're lucky that you're actually IN evaluation....I went complete in 1/14 and am STILL AWAITING evaluation. They claim that the apps are looked in "random" order but I completely disagree--I'm sure bunch of adcomm ppl are sittin there, going through the ones that have strong #s first, and letting those median ppl wait until...whenever they feel like it. The fact that it's taking such a long time for them to reach a decision is definitely not any indication that they're going to WL- I've been given false hope that same way, and had closure, with dings from other UC schools. I used to reason the same way, that if they were going to reject me, they would've done so already...why such a wait?? But it's a cruel game they play, because they can....
I've made the decision to NOT check my status checker like a maniac and just wait until the end of this month-- If there's any movement, I'll find out through here~
Yea, amen to your last note. I'm tired of thinking about Davis day and night, and watching the clock 'til 6pm. I think I'll resolve to do the same and start living my life again, at least until end of April.
