Also, do they usually do multiple rounds of dings?

Thanks folks!

YLS tweets before making acceptance calls. Go follow them on Twitter. As for rejections, check LSN.

It's been a bloodbath today. :( Are you guys all receiving these only in the mail, or do you get an email notification too?

Everything I wrote the other day about being excited for people when they post in this thread has been completely turned on its head.

Survived another day, whew.

So, assuming that we don't all wake to letters tomorrow, how are we interpreting this? Early submission + not rejected now = gone to faculty review?

Attempt to not obsess: failed.

Acceptances will continue to trickle out for a few more months, but I have a bad feeling most of them will be for late submitters. Last year, there were three waves of rejections and one wave of waitlists. The wave of waitlists came out in April, at the same time as the last wave of rejections.

A little surprised I haven't been dinged yet since I got the HLS ding in Jan.

From what little I've seen ITT, acceptances have been going out roughly (but maybe not strictly) in order of submission. We're well into December now.

Yep, this has been my fear. Looking at LSN, I don't see good news for being an early submitter and not hearing yet. But until the letter is in my mailbox, I'll keep dreaming...

I assume you mean that went complete in December. Or do you mean submitted in December?

Submitted and went complete in early to mid-December.

But, it also looks like the second and third waves of rejections last year were basically all late (post New Years) submitters also. So, if we make it past this week and still haven't heard anything...we are probably waitlisted? Not sure, but I would assume we got to faculty review, otherwise why would they not have sent the ding?
