Go to that link, and sort by Decision by clicking on Decision. Go to page 3, and you'll see the decisions start coming out (with Pacifica on 1/9/13). Then if you move over to page 4, you'll see rejections around this week of last year followed by a few acceptances/rejections throughout early March (I counted 12 between now and the end of March with only 4 being non-URM). There were only like 3 more admits after that who avoided the waitlist prior to admission.
Obviously take this with a grain of salt due to reporting bias, but I don't predict us seeing any big waves of admits for the rest of the cycle from SLS.
I'm not sure us waitsters are out of the woods yet, either for good or bad. On that LSN page I counted about 10 pre-January apps accepted between late Feb and April without waitlist. There are also a bunch of rejections...
So I think a lot of us are being held, and some of us will be decided upon in the coming months. But I'm definitely not going to stop hoping until I get a decision. I wish I'd written different essays for Stanford; four months ago it was just another HYS, now I've come to realize how awesome it is. #shouldhaveprocrastinated
ETA I'm sure all of you have seen this timeline chart, but it's a nice visual. Data are pulled from LSN: --LinkRemoved--
