I was under the impression I would be early in the cycle by having primaries sent out in early August. Little did I know that some schools take up to 2 weeks to send out secondaries, there's often a 1-2 week delay between submitting said secondaries and even receiving word that they were received, and another 1-6 week wait between that and final review... Am I actually late?

Patience is a virtue, the need for instant gratification is not.

Schools stratify the apps as they come in and don't send out IIs merely in chronological order.

We haven't even come to Labor Day! Allow some people time to come back from their summer vacation.

How about you go try and read through a few thousand applications in a matter of weeks? Admissions people take this seriously and try to genuinely get people they think will be a good fit, it really does take a while.

Sometimes I forget that this is a human process.
