***image credits to an OP from c/o 2019's CLS admitted students thread: uggs***



Application status: First RD (admitted) Wave - Jan. 18, notification via email

Looking at last year's LSN info:

They had their first wave (admits only) 1/18, then acceptances rolled through the next two weeks. Then there was the first wave of WLers 2/8. Rejections sorta sprinkled in until mid-late April.
