I was told I passed initial review and would undergo faculty review and would hear back March 8th? I assume this also means I'm FR2? What does it mean that I didn't get called today? I would appreciate PM's or any feedback! Thanks.
No one really knows what it means, other than they decided to admit a portion of the FR2 people (other people with that 3/8 email), and that you were not one of them. Thus, your odds of admissions are lower than they were on Sunday. Beyond that, no one can really say anything. However, if last year is any indication, the dings had silence until the deadline. But, last year acceptances didn't start until two days before the deadline, as opposed to the four days this year. In sum, no one knows, but the adage of "no news is good news" is not applicable.
