    Michigan State and Rochester are about a week late compared to the previous two years. Hope they release their results soon.

    The JHU waitlist said that 90% of applicants were rejected outright. I don't know what the normal year is and I'm sure JHU is much less competitive...

    From the email you got, do you think they're sending them out individually? Would you mind sharing the first letter of your last name?

    Keep in mind yesterday was a US holiday, lots of schools had off. Lots of time this week for results to come out (and you to get an offer!).
