    how are people still undecided between 2 schools and it is May 29? unless you were just accepted off a waitlist, didn't the decision have to be made a week ago?

    I think it's safe to assume that the people posting "X vs. Y" threads are getting off the waitlist. Most schools will contact you if you hold multiple acceptances after May 15th and tell you that you need to make up your mind.

    There are some schools (uc davis) that are still giving out outright acceptances up to this point (without waitlist). You then have some time to make your decision.
    There are also some people who have been granted extensions (not more than a week though).
    Starting June 1st, things get more complicated and schools have to notify the school you are accepted at before offering you an acceptance.

    May 15 is only an administrative deadline, not a definitive, magical last date. So it seems like there are always stragglers who for one reason or another haven't properly withdrawn, and the schools pressure them to make a decision by a date that should be right around now; they won't kick them out off their rosters right away without some due process.
