Still nothing from NYC? Really odd that the east coast is so late given that it's the latest US timezone. Still have my fingers crossed!! Dying here

Only thing keeping hope alive for me is that it seems like calls can come at any 'reasonable time' - 10AM - 8PM or so local time. So, still a few hours left on the east coast for that.

Number was blocked. Caller was Derrick Bolton.

I am IN and in a state of shock!

CONGRATS! I enjoyed spending some time chatting today. Best wishes with the celebrations!

The complete lack of west/east coast calls (outside of the one) is very suprising. Wonder how late DB goes...

Keep hoping!!

So each call is 2.5 minutes long. I barely talked so that's the minimum. About 460 people are admitted. That's 1150 minutes of calls, or 19 hours. Without breaks, and starting at 3am Pacific, that means they go on until 22h00 or 10pm Pacific. Calls must be going out still!

R1 isn't 460, that's all 3 rounds. Probably ~200ish?

Trouble is that you are including total class size not just R1 size. I will give us the benefit of the doubt and say 40% come from R1 so thats about 185 ppl. However, I put the time at 5 min assuming dial and redial time, and the occasional break.
That comes to 920 mins, or about 15 hours.

West coast, we've still got time. We are the very last ones he calls. People in the past have received the call while stuck in traffic going home.

Anyone else LA-based?

LA here! Trying my best to avoid staring at my phone, and wondering if I can borrow someone's bluetooth for the drive home.
