If I were in that position, I'd be thinking- well, I haven't gotten dinged or WLed. Maybe that means they like my application a bit but I'm not an auto-admit. Maybe they're already planning a JR1 at some point. Maybe I'm in the wrong pile and it's just taking a while to get to me.
But the fact that you weren't dinged along with other people in your date range can only be a good thing in my book. I'm not saying you'll get in. But they've gone over your app presumably and they didn't ditch it immediately. I'd be hopeful and constantly on edge when other people get e-mails so that I didn't get one as well (because most will be dings and WLs).
As an 11/3 UR I appreciate this sentiment. It just sucks that we're such a small sample size we can't really tell what's going on.
Personally, I have a feeling they won't look back at my application until the February deadline. Then they can decide whether they get any apps far better than mine. But I still don't understand why they won't just hold me.
