I called yesterday to see if they could give me a decision by my deadline and they said they are still making daily decisions.

I am pretty desperate, because after 6 month, it is down to the last week or so. So my anticipation and anxiety is finally building.

SOOO true. I never thought I would be one of those people hanging on the whole cycle.

I spent the last 20 years in the back of the line because of my name, so I only get excited near the end by habit. :lol:

Hey everyone. Got DLSed on Friday. I have been lurking for months. Thanks for all the info/updates, they helped get through this super long wait. Couldn't update earlier because I needed some time to let it sink in :(

I visited Stanford in March and it is absolutely amazing (not that anyone on this thread needs to be told that!). Good luck to all of you left standing!

Under review: 11/17 DLS 4/1 (no joke, unfortunately).

Sorry to hear. :( Even though I'm waiting for the inevitable DLS, I think it'll take some time for it to sink in too.

In other news, the office is now open for business in CA. Please, please, please.

Wait. Was the admissions office closed for the past few days?

Not to add to the anxiety, but Dean Deal has been known to start making calls before 9:00 PST.

Just thought I'd make the window of stressing out each day slightly larger...

i think the comment was in reference to business hours/the 3 hour time difference

perhaps I am jaded but I assumed that they were making decisions daily (they have to be doing something all day) but what irks me is that they don't seem to be releasing those decisions daily

I just want to know when DLS will mean waitlists as I've pretty much lost hope for a call.

Well, the one consolation we have is that even though we were all joking about how we hoped we would be those people Dean Deal hung on to for so long just to try to fit us in, we actually are those people. Haha.

so the bunch of acceptances at the end of last week was the last big wave (that corresponds to the spike on apr 2 of last year's decision dates graph), right?

Someone said they were making decisions daily now, so I would expect that wave to continue until the end of this business week.

Last year acceptances were given out on April 7th, 8th, and 9th (with a "big" wave on the seventh).

The bloodbath occurred mostly from March 8th until April 6th, although obviously many people still got rejected after that period.

Those of us who are still alive--I actually think we're not in horrible shape. It definitely looks like it's going to come down to the wire, though, so good luck to us all!

Isn't ASW this weekend? If so, wouldn't the April 6th date for 2010 correspond to April 5th this year and April 9th, April 8th?

Yeah, although the acceptances were April 7-9 last year, which corresponds to April 6-8 this year. Also, as I mentioned earlier, ASW is a week earlier this year, so that may throw off their timetable.
