My guess is they're doing auto-admits in roughly chronological order based on their website, though I'm sure there's some small variation based on who's reading your stuff, skipping everyone who is even remotely borderline until their application closes (based on how many people submitted in September, myself included, and haven't had a status change), and rejecting people they know they won't admit or WL in chronological order as well. Then I think they're going to go back through and sort people like me into admit/WL/reject once they have every application in. Your numbers are way better than mine so they might just be slightly out of order or your KJD status might be bumping you back since I know it's been a tough cycle in that regard!
I thought no one was an auto-admit at Stanford? Black box and all that.
