I hope you're right about the acceptances, but I feel for those that haven't seen any movement. Don't forget though that the SPWL email said 3/22 not the 15th... so perhaps they are doing 2 waves... spreading out their timing and allowing a few more withdraws from both accepted students and people on the waitlists. This would make sense, there are so many people withdrawing from stuff this time of year, a week can go a long way towards helping schools make safer/more informed decisions.
Why would they act on the WL already when there are so many people who still don't have any decision at all? I'm not understanding adcomm at all right now.
