I sent a pre-decision LOCI to WUSTL. I have no idea if its helped or not.

It looks they've accepted some in as little as twelve days, others have taken longer, and rejections seem to go out in order at a snail's pace. Why wouldn't they just reject everyone en masse?


This. I feel like I can tell exactly what stage most of my apps are in - but not at Stanford - no idea.

If it's any consolation to anyone, I submitted on 9/25 and haven't heard a thing. I've basically accepted the ding at this point, so I almost wish they would hurry up and change me to "Decision Letter Sent" so I can stop obsessing over the status checker.

based on your stats/URM status I'd be surprised if you got a ding. a WL at the least.

S is my top choice and last school I'm waiting on, so hopefully you're right.

Slight changes in name/address formatting as well. This is what my life has come to... editing skills turned useless in between looking at pictures of animals.

From what I've seen on graphs of other schools' decision dates, I wouldn't be surprised if the mass of reject letters goes out next week. I'm not expecting an admit at this point, but that's OK given where else I've gotten in.

My status checker is still down (accessing directly via email). I assume this is still the case for everyone?

Yeah, it was working earlier today for a bit, but it's down again now. A finaid officer yesterday told me that ACES (the school's end of LSAC) was having problems, so I think it's just an LSAC issue.

I dislike this mainly because it makes my obsessive status checking futile.

It's common knowledge that it changes after the adcomms Google Street View your address to see how cool your house is. Just a normal part of the process.

My apartment complex has a hot tub. That should count as an above average soft, right?
