Are you a FT or PT app?
I am staying optimistic even though I am one whose review date recently changed.
I am of the opinion though, that since some applications are accepted with only one level of review, the date change could indicate a lack of confidence in the applicant, or at least a lack of willingness to commit to a decision to accept.
On the other hand, I have seen some whose decision date changed eventually receive an acceptance.
Bottom line, all we can do is guess, and look at last year's history.
FT. I applied later remember? Like February late. Hahah. After looking at some of the last years cycle (like you) I kind of came to the conclusion you did. I had multiple changes last year and I ended up WL'ed late (may 8th actually). By multiple I mean three, haha. They offered me PT cosideration, and I said yes, but never sent a letter confirming cause I kinda still wanted FT. Ended up retaking, did muuuch better, and then reapplied. You told me to stay the course haha and I agreed.
I think if your date changes three times then they like you, but the numbers aren't enough. Twice or once I think means good things and you can kinda either count on a WL or acceptance, so good luck!
I also disagree that we are the on the fence candidates since, tbh, for the people that sent their stuff in late jan-feb there haven't been all that many acceptances (unless you count the obvious 169+, 3.35+ people). We're just the middle of the pack people that they need to take time to review.
I hope you're right. I applied early February and it's certainly not unreasonable that they didn't have time to carefully review all apps before the first seat deadline.
A handful of pages back, someone started a discussion on the timing of one's application submission: whether or not it was advantageous to submit closer to the deadline or not. My opinions is that only those with fantastic numbers should submit early.
