Just got into this "online chat" and the first sentence I saw was "all emails went out".

Then realized they were talking about stanford...

My heart sank after reading the first sentence and then perked up after reading the second.

Sadly, chat is blocked at my employer. Looks like I'll be forced to hit refresh over and over while waiting.

Does anyone know how the application screen looks after acceptance?

Right now when I log in I get the single line screen that shows: 2012 Round 1 Submitted, with "2012 Round 1" a link to the application itself. Does anyone know if this "Submitted" changes to Accepted, Waitlisted, and Rejected (or some other less harsh word)?

It usually doesn't say anything on the application screen, but has a link to 'Your application decision' where you have the official letter from Bruce. If they really are doing the calls this year, this will mainly be a formality for those who've been accepted.

You will likely hear later this afternoon or tomorrow - they were still finalizing the list yesterday. Good luck and keep the hope up and go do something fun instead of staring at your phones. (I know, easy for me to say) Also, you will get calls, so no use in checking your application status.

You guys are all on it! Now, go get a drink to celebrate. Also, something to look forward to - a year from now when you are finishing your finals, Student Academic Services will have a champagne party at lunch for you!

Emails for people abroad, but some kind of notification before your status changes was my point.

I'm going to call it a day for board refreshing. I believe the office closes around 4:30pm (although they might be working late). Good luck to everyone tomorrow!

I did interview, but it didn't go well and I'm not a strong candidate to say the least.

I hear a lot of times people do better than they think they did on the iview. Look at it this way, if you felt grilled in the interview, perhaps the interviewer was genuinely interested in your candidacy and wanted to check you out.

It ain't over till Susan Boyle sings, so chin up!

One can only hope. I had a similar experience. My interviewer and I did not get along at all. I felt grilled the whole time. I'd like to say that was just his style, but I know a bomb when I see it. I'm resigned to a ding too :(

I don't know why I bother checking the forums - just makes my heart jump up through my neck. Still, I find a certain amount of comfort in the fact that so many of you out there are in the same boat. I'm gonna miss you people, whoever you are.

I agree. It's just nice to pass the time with other incredibly nervous people. If 2010 is the benchmark, then the calls should start flowing at 10:30am. If 2009 is benchmark, we will be waiting until 3pm. Fingers crossed we hear from someone in 30 minutes!

Is it that this year's competition is extremely hot? How come no one has heard anything yet?...
