Does anybody know if anyone has received a rejection letter yet? Or when Stanford usually sends out the ding mails?

Been under review since early October.

Just went complete. Stanford was the last school I applied to (took my recommenders a long time to write Stanford-specific recommnedations), but that might be a good thing as I think I submitted a very solid application.

And now the waiting game begins...I hope going complete late doesn't make me an auto-ding - it's pretty much a shot in the dark as it is!

According to that graph, some folks should have been admitted by now (Nov/Dec). Why is it that none have gotten in thus far?

Probably because of Dean Deal's family emergency in late October.

I don't think so. Last year first acceptances came on the second friday in December.

Knock, then if what you state is true, WHY does the TLS graphs show mid November as the first acceptances coming out?

It doesn't. It goes by weeks. So locate "Dec4" (4th week of December) on the graph. Move two to the left to the second mark (2nd week of December) and that is where the "big wave" of acceptances went out; which is consistent with the data from last year's thread.

Every good athlete knows you don't change stuff in the middle of your game. Knock almost screwed it all up.

Haha, that's definitely not happening. But if it somehow does, I may have a heart attack :lol:. And while I will immediately post on TLS, I cannot guarantee my post will be comprehensible.

So I am not seeing what you are seeing. the way I am reading it is acceptances began the week after Thanksgiving and then ran through December 4th

The graph starts at Dec 1st week which is 0. The next point is Dec 2nd week with 9, so the green line draws from 0 to 9.

The graphs are crappy. they should have used bar graphs instead of line, there is no reason to connect the dots. So it should be, week by week starting from Dec 1(st week): 0 - 9 - 8 - 0 - 0 - 0 - 3 (Jan 2nd week) - etc...

Edit: added that 1st week of Dec = 0

I thought people got off WL too? My numbers are not strong, so if my file doesn't convince them to accept up front I don't think I stand as good of a chance later.
