You see, from what I have been hearing, all Admissions peeps have is a big stack of folders through which they daily peruse. A ding here, an admit there. They won't diligently pull your file unless 1) the eventually get to you (which may be faster if you have awesome numbers) or 2) you motivate them to.
I interviewed with Krystal Orr (sorry if I misspelled!) and felt I did well. Didnt get a decision over the phone but my checker did change the next day. The interview was shorter than I had expected/hoped for though.
I interviewed with her, too. I think she doesn't give decisions over the phone (don't know why, but that seems to be the pattern so far.) My status checker also changed the same day. I freaked out, seeing everyone else getting offers over the phone, but got the acceptance letter in the mail a few weeks later.
