application status

Postby mharrin5507 » Sat Feb 06, 2010 10:02 pm

I got all my apps (20) out this week -- finally -- and checked on the app status of one school this afternoon. Of all the schools that have responded by email to notify me of receipt of my app, this school's status reads "congratulations, you've been accepted!" as of yesterday's date (it was supposedly reviewed 2 days prior on Feb 3rd). All the other schools have a blank "status" space on their links (as I expected). I just don't know what to make of this. I don't want to get excited over an error or something. Anyone have any ideas?

what school was it?
and are you an auto-admit by your numbers?

It is a t4 school and I confess my ignorance of "auto admit".

Auto-admit means that you are above both 75th percentiles.

HLS is the only t4 school that has a status checker, and I highly doubt that they've accepted you so swiftly. Did you have an interview?

I thought you meant tier 4 managamy, and then I began to think what other law school refers to itself as HLS...

Oops, I thought that "t4" meant top 4, just as people say t6 for top 6 or t14 for top 14. Sorry for the confusion.

If you mean Tier 4, an acceptance is perfectly plausible.
