Looking at LSN, Friday the 29th was a massive day last cycle with JS2s and dings, but then again we're already in line with the March 29th numbers. This may suggest that they're slightly ahead of schedule, and IF they wanted to get our decisions out by April 1st they could do so.
Pre-waitlist, long-waiter JS2s were also more consistently reported last cycle, and hopefully those of us in that boat see some positive action soon along with our JS0 people.
I wonder if some of this has to do with the fact that they knew from the get-go this year that applicants would be down and that, to some extent, 170 plus scorers would also decline, so they decided to move more quickly with making decisions on who would be close but not exactly shoe-in acceptances in previous cycles.
Still, although it would mirror what happened last year fairly closely, I'm surprised to see that there is still about a 200 accepted candidate discrepancy from last year's FB group's end total. We don't know exactly how many accepted candidates end up joining the FB group, but I would assume that it would at the very least be half, and that leaves 100 people that are left in limbo a week before many schools' deposit deadlines.
