Couple of points: 

1) Two months is from December 23rd-ish to now. 
2) If I can read the code correctly, time to rejection is also counted.

It's quite possible that the time to accept|reject has a median of 57
since the sample size is only 16... [someone with direct access to the
nm db can verify this more quickly than I can though.]

Obviously feel free to suggest something that makes more sense and
accurately reflects the dataset with patches. [I'd almost guess that
counting the status of people still in the queue might be a better
measure, but who knows?]
