I think I'm likely retaking. I feel like I'd have to be in the top 10% at Berkeley to have any chance at the same BigGov opportunities as HYS, and that's just way too much pressure.

Ah, didn't realize that was your end-goal. Yeah, that's sound, and another year of saving, hopefully. Good luck!

While I hope that there's a sliver of hope for us still holding on, I doubt that's the case. If all acceptances are out, how hard can it be to just do a mass update?

I look back on my 9/18 complete date. I was so young...

You are the bearer of good news. Let's hope they're general offers and not URM/Gender specific.

Mine just changed to "a decision letter has been sent."...Does that mean rejected?

Haha, DLS is the new status checker talk.

It means either waitlist or rejection, you won't know for sure until you get your letter. But people have reported that if you call admissions they will tell you your decision over the phone. You should do that to add to the collective knowledge sooner. And good luck!

How do we know that wasn't the auto response they have been giving? :( "giving decisions on a daily basis until April 30th"

As I got off the phone I fell in love with the voice on the other line. Stanford you have way too much power over me.

They obviously aren't using it responsibly. Uncle Ben would be ashamed...

It's not technically a lie as long as they "still give out" at least one "offer of admission" to someone on the waitlist.

I like to think that they are having a head to head 128 application tournament with our applications. Those who make it out of the first two rounds get waitlisted and the last 16 standing get offers of admission. Seems about right.

They also bring the last 32 candidates to Palo Alto. You stand in a dimly lit room with Faye while she hands out 16 roses. This will be shown live on TLC.

Or, I guess we could also do a Hunger Games style event.

It can be called "T3 Problems" and nobody in America will watch.
