The expectation (based on last year) I believe (and correct me if I'm wrong) is that the rejections would come out yesterday and today, followed by waitlists/acceptances from Wednesday to Friday (?). If the tweet from last night though indicates that it is just a matter of waiting for the faculty review (because it looks as though the admissions office generously/mercifully tries to notify applicants ASAP), then I wonder what accounts for some of the rejections going out on Monday and others on Tuesday (because presumably if the office were just waiting to receive faculty review decisions, it would be doling out acceptances and rejections on Tuesday as well).
we know that last night's acceptances were from FR, rather than asha admits.
my guess is that the monday dings were a mix of autodings, fully completed FRs, and partially completed FRs (files that received either a '2' or two '3's). my conjecture for the last group is that the admissions order doesn't need to wait on the last review for those with a maximum score of 10, while those who might hit 11 (or possibly 12) are held until complete decisions are in and they can be ordered into acceptances v. waitlist.
