@waitlistiscoming: Rs seem to be coming on pace with As. Last year's first WL wave was 3/18.
I applied end of December and still haven't gotten an email saying my app is complete

@siredwardelgar: big fan of your work
I submitted on Feb 7th, and never received a status check. Emailed them and received an email with the status check within 1 day. I also got UR a week after submitting (Feb 14th)
16:44
Did you get a UR before getting your status check?
any feb applicants get accepted
I emailed to get a status check a week ago (applied 2/6) and no response. Should I send another email? They don’t answer the phone. 😔 I just don’t want to irritate them.
applied beginning of December and my app has been in review since 12/13... losing hope everyday
18:40
Mine's been in review since late September LOL
i just randomly got my status checker this morning and i applied in jan
11:39
I saw some comments on Reddit saying stanford‘s portal saying a decision has been sent is the same for A’s?
11:40
And that some people didn’t pick up or it was too late in their time zone so they received an email from the Dean instead?
@luckygirlSLS: That's exactly right! That's what happened to me
21:39
@formerwarnerhuntington: do you know if your portal changed before/after you got contacted by email?
RFOZ

Finally got my app processed. Submitted my app February 6th lol
@luckygirlSLS: I also received only email and the status checker didn't update until later
Mickyddd
17:33
anyone know when the next sls a wave will be? or e wave?
@Mickyddd: I’m not sure they do big waves.
I think it’s kind of a trickle until the end unfortunately
How do they notify for rejection?
Was going over the admissions page earlier & it said some apps are held off for second review in april. Could it be that many of the people that have been UR for months are going to be part of the second review

@DizzyTearfulLoon: physical letter, you’ll see DLS in tracker apparently
@DizzyTearfulLoon: your portal will be updated with a banner indicating that a decision has been rendered. Then they will send you the decision via snaIl mail.

You can check your status checker and it'll say DLS. For A's they call, I'm pretty sur.e
