So, best case scenario is that the letters weren't picked up until yesterday and there's at least a two day turn around for simple letters going through the USPS - though it usually ends up being three at the quickest.

tl;dr: Prediction: DC residents might see something tomorrow, all of us other folks will see something on Monday.


...Unless if there are emails involved. In which case: All bets are off. :evil:

My DR came late on 11/30 (after 4) and I was surprised to find the letter in my box the next day (in DC).

Just sayin'

that can only mean one thing. 12/1 are all rejects and they're just waiting "3-5" days before they email us.

Or...

everybody needs to calm down. There's no guarantee that they always send out the mail at the same time. Also, mail tends to take 2+ days through USPS.

My vote is not for a show but a category: Nick contest shows.


Legend of the Hidden Temple, anyone?

How would various law schools, represented by their students, perform on LOTHT?

hmm...alright, so you need a combination of brains, brawn, and cunning for this one. i'm going to say one of the southern schools might take it - UVA or Duke. they get outdoors, they're a little hardier than the complete academics at YH, or Chi especially, but they've got brains enough.

Not to be the spoiler of your illusion of control, but unless you received DR status very early in the process (i.e. autoadmit) the assumption that similar batches go out at the same time is most likely erroneous. While earlier decisions are generally better than later ones, you're all just going to have to wait for your individual letter, as accept/waitlist/reject decisions are all made in the same "batches" or rounds.

Best of luck to all.
