I thought I was rejected for sure. But the letter was actually written in very kind, consoling words, saying that the admissions committee finished reviewing my file and couldn't make a decision. Well, that takes a lot of worry off my mind, because at least I know at this point that the school hasn't rejected me. The letter also said that the committee will finish the interview season in February before making a final review of my application with all the others in March, although "an earlier decision is possible." Man, I gotta think of something good to say to the adcom soon!
