You might been hurt, Faye,
That ain't no lie.
You've seen 'em all come and go (oohh woaah).

I remember you told me,
that it made you believe in no man, no cry.
Maybe that's why...

Every little thing I do,
never seems enough for you.
You don't want to lose it again,
but I'm not like them.

Stanford when you finally
do admit somebody,
guess what:
It's gonna be me.

thank you Koala, you're the sweetest. IT IS A WL!!!! I'm just happy because even though the chance is small A) it's still there and B) it finally finishes my 7+month cycle and I got NO rejections :) :) :)

Let's beat the odds!

I have called the office twice to get the DLS news and each time no one is there... am I calling the wrong number?

DLS sometime in the past day, just called and turns out its a WL! Was sort of hoping I'd make it the full seven months since my complete date (9/30), but alas...

Not planning on sticking with the WL, so happy to have an official end to my cycle!

Sorry to hear about the WL, but congrats on the end to a (very) fine cycle! :)

Hmmm...starting to think the majority of those remaining are going to be getting dinged. Seems like they have put together a pretty sizable wait list already...

Do we know how large the wait list has historically been?

I agree wholeheartedly with this sentiment. Last year there were waitlists up until April 30, and then a swath of rejections on April 30th.

If you're still holding on, I'd say it's not a great sign.

yup, the time when you wanted to remain under review instead of going DLS is rapidly passing.
don't know if hearing earlier about being put on wait list signals higher position, but would consider that a positive signal as well.

I dunno, they accepted someone yesterday, unless they're positive that they're done with admits they may still be holding strong candidates.

And between today's date and the 30th last year, there were 38 waitlists out of a total of 90 reported for the cycle. I think there will be many more waitlists before the week is over.

As a September applicant, I am not going to handle it well if I get straight up rejected at this point.

You being waitlisted is clearly egregious yield protection on Faye's part :wink:.

Sorry about the WL, but congrats on the amazing cycle! Have you made a decision?

Thanks, koala & nonconsecutive! Haven't made an official decision yet, but pretty sure it's going to be YLS. As a side note, YLS sent out snuggies to admits this year, which I think may even top the famous SLS moleskines in terms of admissions swag! :D

Condolences to my fellow DLS'ers and good luck to everyone who's still waiting!
