Got my Irvine reject letter yesterday, too - dated March 17, from Michelle Latiolais. One of the TSE posters wrote that he got a phone call from her this week, with an acceptance. Not sure if I believe him, but he wrote that Michelle and Ron Carlson are the only readers of the submissions, and they are going at a snail's pace. This is apparently why the rejections and acceptances are slowly rolling out, and at the same time. They seem to know what they like when they see it (those are the lucky ones who get the phone calls) and know what they will definitely "not recommend for admission" when they see that (the letters for the rest of us) :-(
But, yeah, it does suck to know we probably weren't "considered" that carefully -- just part of their forward momentum process of rare accept and mass reject. Aw, well. "Forget it, Jake, it's Irvine."
