Would you rather be broken up with via e-mail or snailmail/phone? I wouldn't even be mad if I got a hard copy breakup letter.

Yeah, I just called the main admissions line-they're very used to it and very nice.

I truly have no idea why they don't just email decisions instead. I was attempting to explain Stanford's process to someone last week after I was waitlisted, and they were utterly confused. It's objectively absurd.

Thanks. Just called, and they definitely seemed used to it - I feel bad for whoever is manning the phones right now, I'm sure these calls are annoying.

For posterity, complete around 12/6 (I've forgotten the actual date by now), and it was a WL.

I don't think they are going to make the deadline at this rate

I just honestly want to know what it means to be someone who has been held this long.

Actually maybe I don't, because either way, I don't think any more acceptances are going out.

It's just hard because until it's over there's still that small piece of me saying "If they really hated your app, they would have dinged you by now. If they knew for sure they were gonna WL you, they would have done it."
Thank goodness it's almost over

Those of us who aren't DLS by tomorrow are going to win a spot in a Hunger Games type battle.. Winner gets the final straight acceptance.

it would be tragic if they just wait until the last day to ding people. like, why hold on to people if you know you would ding them?

I am wondering whether they are taking their sweet time on making a decision on me because I live in San Francisco.

"nah, let him wait. the letter is gonna reach him in time anyway."

What is the method to Stanford's madness? I've seen completes way before and after mine ... I just want to know!
