Status Checker Updates, UVA and WUSTL

I went complete at UVA a little over a week ago. Upon visiting their status checker around noon today, I discovered a new completion date of... today. I haven't sent them anything new. Anyone have any idea what this means?

Something similar happened for WUSTL; I went complete after calling on the 27th (she did it while we were on the phone), and went complete again on Friday.

I've heard that applications with high LSAT scores are reviewed by their admissions dean rather than the committee, at least at first. I heard this from someone who visited a few weeks ago, could that info have anything to do with the WUSTL update?


Typical for UVA. I'm more worried that I haven't gone complete a second time after my first complete-date on 1/6. No idea about WUSTL, but probably the same.

Same thing happened for me with UVA today...what does your status actually say? Mine says "File Complete, Pending Review/Decision"

Same thing here. I wish they'd just leave the damn date alone if they have no intention of doing anything with my file :roll:

So was the 1/29 update your second File Complete update at WUSTL? Someone on the WUSTL thread mentioned that they had called the admissions office and they basically said that the File Complete update does not mean that your application has gone into review. This could mean either that a decision has been made or is really complete, as in processed and everything needed is in the file. Mine updated from File Complete on 11/17 to File Complete on 1/26 as did a lot of peoples but other than a few acceptance e-mails that were sent out on 1/29, nothing has been heard since.

Yeah, 1/27 was the first. I got impatient after submitting 2 weeks before and called their office. The woman who helped me verified that they had received everything and then went ahead and set my status to complete while I spoke with her. It reset to complete on 1/29.

A lot of people got updated last week to File Complete the second time (1/25, 1/26 and 1/29). From my understanding of what I've read on these boards, the second File Complete seems like a decision but no telling when you be notified of it. If it's and acceptance, it could be pretty soon. If it's not, it may not be until April until you find out if you've been rejected or waitlisted because WUSTL didn't notify those individuals until April last year. So I say, if you make it into mid March without hearing anything else, it's a good possibility that you may not receive an acceptance. Just my take on things but I could be completely wrong.

Any idea if the same is true for UVA?

Not sure if anyone knows what's going on with UVA. The ED modification they made, while a good move, has made their cycle unpredictable.

It says:

Current Status: Application Complete
Current Status Date: 2/2/2010

I got my status info 12/29.
I also checked it last night and didn't notice anything different.

170, 3.34, LOR from their former dean.

Someone else got in today too in the 'who did you hear from?' thread.

WUSTL status checker won't say anything else other than File Complete once your complete, when you receive a decision and when you receive an acceptance e-mail. The dates will just change as it happens.

Yeah I kind of figured that out...

Reasoning/source?

Also, 3rd completion update at WUSTL today, along with several other people. They're toying with us.

Not you, just in general, they have been putting tons of people on the waitlist this cycle. I still have yet to hear from them, but fear the WL.

On the WUSTL thread, everyone that had received a third File Complete update received an e-mail that day with an acceptance. Last years numbers on LSN shows that no one received a rejection/wl before April 1st.

Ah. I agree, it's the most likely scenario, they're getting tons of guaranteed matriculants via ED.
