Thanks guys, I guess i'll shoot them an email later on in March. I don't want to piss them off or rush them though, but I guess I don't really have a choice.

I don't see how anyone could take offense to a polite email 3-4 weeks in advance.

I have a good feeling about you. I think you'll get in with the April admits.

Knock: Exact same situation when I applied three years ago. I called April 8 and they told me my decision (WL) over the phone, even though I hadn't gotten a letter or an updated status yet.

I am also curious because I see one person updated to rejection 10 hours ago and a couple rejections 2/28. The rejections are from January completes I believe. (Could they be getting close to starting round 2 of reviews?) Nothing particularly strange or shocking, though.

Yea, I guess someone getting dinged with a 178 and 3.87 isn't that shocking.

At Harvard, Columbia, NYU, very shocking.

Stanford? Not at all.

Hey everyone...if I want to update my application, do you think it would be inappropriate to e-mail Dean Deal directly?

Send it to the generic email for admissions. However, I did in fact address my email and LOCI to Dean Deal and the admissions committee.

Is that how the process works for SLS- several rounds of reviews? I haven't seen much movement among January completes (of which I am one). Then again, looking at last year's data on LSN, only ONE (and s/he was a URM) January complete was accepted.

That could be a selection issue, though. It isn't unreasonable to assume that most folks who have their shit together enough to apply early are also those who have found and utilized resources like LSN & TLS. There could be a number of January admits who simply don't post their stuff online.

Really? I just looked and found 8 January completes that were accepted, along with 2 February completes.

EDIT: From last year's LSN data, just to be clear.

Most of what we say on here is speculation, though admittedly knowledgeable speculation. From Dean Deal's posts, she has said people fall into the auto-admit, auto-deny, or borderline categories. It is probably safe to assume those who are auto-admit get calls fairly quickly after submission and those who are auto-deny or low end of borderline get letters fairly quickly in the process. We think that the DLS's so far (which for the most part have been chronological) have been these. It seems logical to think that if your submitted for review date has been passed over for DLS the first time through, you were a borderline and will receive further review.

Also, it is important to note that Stanford is holistic and even great candidates at many schools are auto-deny here just bc Stanford is looking for something specific (we don't know what).

Judging by the graphs in the OP, should we be bracing ourselves for massive spike in DLS in the next few weeks?

Yeah, that's what it looks like from the decision date graph.
