Out of curiosity, how many people here submitted targeted LOR's? If so, how many? I get the feeling that they are going to play a huge deal for borderline candidates. I'm thinking of sending another one in to see if it can tip the scales in my favor.
Just to echo everyone else, the Submitted for Review is the last thing before decision. Acceptances are by phone call, and waitlists/denies are by snail mail only, in a smaller white envelope. It is also credited that submitted dates with long review periods are not necessarily bad.
I submitted two targeted LORs. I also submitted some other non-targeted ones.
ETA: Just in case anyone was curious, in last year's thread there were several acceptances today and Friday this week last year. Actually a fairly large amount (around 6 or 7) for Stanford. Also, a week from this Friday is when the first snail mailed rejection was received.
