For you to be certain of this you would have had to have seen all 50 of everyone's emails (50 for the french stream anyway that make up those not yet accepted) to be able to state that they were all identical. I know the total of the non accepted are waitlisted and have always been, but it seems odd and unreasonable that they decided this year to not distinguish at all based on placement/probability of being eventually accepted because that leaves many applicants hanging and prevents them from accepting another offer sooner, and is overall a big inconvenience. If you are basing your certainty on those who have posted thus far, only a very small fraction have and it is not representational.
So either whoever you spoke with told you directly what made up the content of everyone's emails (which seems like a bit of a violation of privacy) or you have some other source of information you haven't yet disclosed because you don't know every applicant personally nor do you have access to their emails... I'm not trying to be accusatory or anything at all, I hope it doesn't come across that way, and I appreciate your input on the thread, I'm just trying to piece together the facts here before jumping to any conclusions that would cause more stress than necessary.
Anyhow, my plan is to try to not think of it for the next two weeks and hope for the best, clearly I am already failing at that????
