It feels weird that my first post is about this topic. But since we are econ people and we study implications and relations, I guess it doesn't hurt to try to seek for some taste out of the decision thread. :dejected:

Well, I've been following the thread here and the GC for a while now, as myself is applying for grad schools as well... Somebody get the same feeling as I do? that if your name isn't listed anywhere while the 'cluster' of admissions comes out on the thread, you are likely to be rejected...

Greenhorse, this is what we call implicit rejection. It is a signal, but sometimes you think you are implicitly rejected and get accepted or waitlisted.

Thanks for the education Forbin. I thought implicit meant somebody got a chance to speak to the admissions committee and heard something allusive when I first saw people using the term in other threads...
