I have received an email. It says they released the first cycle of admission. 

Same email I got. I did not receive an offer email and my portal status is still "Under Review". Curious if anyone has actually been accepted yet.

Just out of curiosity -- why is the sweat thread so quiet this year? I was looking forward to visiting and reading this thread frequently in this stressful period 🙂

It's early and there's not much to talk about yet. But this forum does seem to be slowly dying (fewer new threads, virtually no results in last year's results thread). It's sad. But on the bright side, this sweat thread already has 2,000 views, so people still seem to care about what other people may be hearing.

It's quite unfortunate that it has been dying slowly—I remember looking for information here back in freshman year to start making plans for applications, and now that I am at the end of a predoc the forum is a quite quiet. Hopefully things heat up soon.

Stanford's website says they release decisions in mid-January, does anyone know if it also said that last year when they actually released decisions in late February? 

I was wondering the same thing. I even tried to use https://archive.org/web/, but they don't have the one from last year LOL

Yes, it's very quiet. Especially compared to the heyday of the 2000s!

I would like to make a run at reviving things over here; at this stage of my career, it'll be a labor of love. Well, it's actually always been that. But I'd really like to put in a few features to see where things go.

Things have indeed been quiet here, which is a real loss for applicants. But let me mention that if you compare to the economics section of theGradCafe, it's still vastly busier here.

I am sure people's willingness to share their thoughts on applications hasn't changed, so I wonder where people went. EJMR is a whole different beast, gradcafe forum is even quieter, and reddit doesn't seem to have a similar community (r/academiceconomics is close, but I feel it's too broad).
