    Yes the decisions are out on the website:
    "Your application for admission to study at Stanford has been reviewed by the Admissions
    Committee in the Economics Department. I regret to report that we cannot admit you to our
    graduate program.
    As you know, the Department gets many more applications from qualified candidates than we
    can accept given our financial resources and space restrictions. Consequently, each year many
    strong candidates must be turned down. Regretfully, we cannot provide individual feedback on
    applications which were not accepted into our program. I can only assure you that all files were
    read by the admissions committee and decisions were made with care.
    I wish you every success in your career."

    Finally got an actual email.

    I guess this confirms that there is a lag between posting on ApplyWeb and actual emails. I kind of hate this news because it means I'm going to be loading my app pages over and over instead of just checking my email - seems more stressful!

    Oh well, I'm at least glad to get Stanford (probably the best department I applied to) over with early...

    Congrats to all who got in!

    I’ve also just been rejected from Stanford, so I can confirm that they’re real!

    IR probably means implicit rejection

    Makes so much sense lol, how could I have not seen that
    And @askangbuzz yes IR is definitely implicit reject
    Something I have noticed is that even the candidates that get into top programs has a number of rejection (sometimes even 50% of program they applied to or even higher). Really reinforces how noisy the admission process is.

    I think, while partially it is due to noise, the other thing is that lower ranked places may reject overqualified candidates who they are certain will go somewhere else.
