People like r6_philly, Unitas, Apimpnamedslick, et al. and quite a few others in the YLS thread have all attested to the veracity of what I have said. Thank you, guys. I'm not exactly parroting what HLS/YLS have said, but rather putting my own interpretation in to this. ie. most dings have been sent out, and the "vast majority" of remaining applications are either appropriate candidates for WL'd or an acceptance. (I've explained this in detail in the YLS thread, so no point in repeating this.
It's pretty amusing how people are quick to say that I am somehow intentionally and deliberately misleading people, yet hordes of others come in here and saying that they too had called the offices before the Easter Hpliday Weekends, and not the same response to tune of more or less what I had alluded to. This is just like when I had suggested that in the previous cycles some people were admitted to HLS absent a phone interview. The naysayers were out to refute me... only to have several people come on here and substantiate what I had alluded to.
And finally, like r6_philly and that other fella in the YLS thread have said, of course due schools don't give status updates with respect to all pending applications awaiting decisions; but they do offer insight in a rather specious manner, just as they did with me and others that have called. Instead of taking shots at what is conjecture for now, why don't you naysayers man the fuck up and call the offices yourselves?
I have no vested interest to disseminate incorrect info or any intentions to mislead anyone, as like many of you, I too am in the same boat (ie. anxiously awaiting a status update). I do like to author troll-esque threads and joke around every now and then purely for bantering and amusement purposes, but this isn't one of those times. And given the recent slew of "movement" (ie. holds, dings, etc) and the multitude of people coming on here and saying what I had said speaks to the veracity of my info, only further supports my position. My "info" isn't top secret per se. Anyone who makes an inquiry will get the same info from the horse's mouth.
That is all.
actually, yes, in fact i stand vigorously behind (though not literally, to be sure) peter north. not because i think he's earned much credibility, but rather because it makes me profoundly happy that someone this outrageous actually exists.
