tempted to just drive from l.a. to palo alto, but don't have that kind of time.

How do you know SLS has not admitted 380 students already?

GTFO. Jk, in past years they've at least admitted a few in late March/early April.

Because they would have had the decency to reject or wait list the rest of us?

Just called the Admissions Office just to see if they were open...

They are open...

and I think I'm starting to lose it.

Ah ok, good point. Yep, if 380 are already admitted, they would probably have told the rest of us by now.
It could be they have admitted a few in March/April not from TLS.

I have no knowledge to base this on, but I think we may be nearing the end of the road.

Looking through last years and prior years threads, I think that while it is foolish to hope to discern a pattern for dates, there was one constant: that at the tail end of the notification deadline, all of the applicants retained a great deal of hope. That hope was met with a waitlist/ rejection bloodbath at the end of April.

Would a targetted LoR this late in the game be considered OK by SLS? Don't want to annoy them.

I'm reapplying from last cycle. Applied near deadline to SLS, got rejected shortly after 4/20.

As for Harvard, I was WLed in a wave in late April, then in the first week of May, around 20 people were accepted off the WL, and it was trickle for the rest of the summer.

Look through last years threads for any school you are wonderng about. There were no rounds of final mass acceptances.

I would advise against it, but it's your call.

or not on lsn. i was admitted last week but i dont have a profile there and a few other people on tls were accepted that don't appear to have profiles. "fortuitous" got accepted at about the same time i did and s/he didn't have a filled in lsn profile; i think there was at least one other...
again, this isn't to predict the future but to say that there seems to have been a steady enough stream of acceptances over the past couple weeks
