which pretty much means.. everyone who went complete earlier than 1/22 got their apps reviewed already... and CLS decided to move on..
Perhaps they go through the applicants in order, separate the auto-dings and the auto-accepts and the 'look more closely' files, and then proceed accordingly. In that case everyone from, say, 12/25 to 1/25 could just have their acceptances shipped out in one big batch while they simultaneously spend some time fleshing out the "look more closely" pile? In that case some people with a 1/22 date would receive an acceptance while the 1/8 person was still under consideration.
That's how I would do it. I'm not an expert by any stretch, mind you.
It makes more sense that they do it this way, given this (LinkRemoved) graph.
Forgive me for being such a n00b but how does one read/interpret that chart?
Thanks for all you've done for us this cycle btw, you're awesome!
Don't worry about it. The graph is a bit hard to understand, but once you figure it out, it's easy. It is a graph of complete date versus the date a decisions was received (based on LSN data, of course). The X axis is the complete date, and the Y axis in the date the decision was received. you can see that a huge wave of acceptances comes out at one time, and then acceptances continue to trickle out for people who submitted early for a few months.
