Your NYU status checker says 'decision sent'?

Out of curiosity, did you get an email stating that your application was under review prior to your acceptance? I got one yesterday - not sure what to make of it since no one else seems to have gotten one.

The internet has truly decimated the practical value of form letters :).

In at Washington and Lee via e-mail; deposit due by next friday. Not really sure what I am going to do about this, no word from GW, Emory, or W&M. Also not sure about law review and have not yet tried to negotiate my scholarship at current school. Next week should be fun.

I received an e-mail on the 6th for admittance to both schools. I did not receive any e-mail with regard to my application being on hold for further review. I really do not know which way I am leaning right now, which sucks. Any help with regard to either WI or MN?

Wow, that would definitely be a tough decision. I hear the Twin Cities >> all the Wisconsin for most posters, but not having to take the bar would be awesome. Congrats again!

Well, I chose to apply to Wisco over Minnesota, so I am a little biased. Madison is awesome, the clinics are right at the top, and the school seems to have a strong history and tradition. I know that might not be the popular choice because of rank or w/e else, but it's the choice I made.

Have a cousin in Madison (UG) and he loves it. Not sure how it is for professional schools, but it seems to doing a few things right. At least its ranking went up (?).

I mean, I made the opposite choice (b/w Wisco and Minn.) b/c my wife really likes Minnesota and we will likely live in whatever region I graduate from but I kind of wish I had applied now, especially since they are sending out decisions so soon.

Hmmm. My brother and newborn niece live in Madison - I didn't mention that in my application, personal statement, etc, but I did mention it in a couple emails with admissions regarding my transcripts. Anyone care to speculate on what it means that I'm the only person who received an "under review" email?

I got that email too before I was admitted. It was just an email saying I was complete and am ready for review. Is that what you are referring to?

Ah, ok, good. Thanks for the heads up - I was inclined to view it as a bad sign.

While I am still waiting on a few higher ranked schools, I have to start thinking about the only decision I have in front of me. I was hoping I could get some advice. I am currently at Catholic (#98 scared to death to fall in to the T3 as we have dropped from 88 in 2 years) in DC approx top 18% with law review. I recently was accepted at W&L with a seat deposit due next friday, an expensive seat deposit. My question is, obviously I am hoping from an admit from a higher school but if my option was between W&L and Catholic + LR what would you choose?
