6/30, apparently "committee review" is a very rigorous form of review and could take up to 2 weeks.

If you don't mind my asking, what in the heck are y'all talking about? Is this off the waitlist or something? If so, good luck to everyone.

I didn't see it. I should pay more attention to the thread topic. Thanks.

Is there any alternative form of review they do? This sounds about right from transferapps which shows dates around July 6/14 as the earliest decisions.

Most transfer applications are reviewed only by the Dean of Admissions, not a committee. Thus, at most schools the process is shorter.

For those who have gone complete and/or are UR, when did you submit your app?

Thanks

Also Under Committee Review -- complete 6/24, app submitted 6/15.

I called yesterday to get an idea of their timeline, they told me they might have decisions end of next week or the week after.

Since I've given up all hope of ever going complete at NYU or Columbia, I'm counting on Penn to be my pre-July 15th acceptance (b/c of the Boalt deadline).

Is anyone else optimistic that we'll hear this week?

^^ Did you not apply to Chicago? I was kind of hoping they'd relieve me from having to do Georgetown's write-on. (The last day to enter is the 19th.)

Yeah I never ended up applying to Chicago. They needed me to submit my LS transcript through LSAC and I never got around to it (Penn supposedly requires that as well, but I went complete by just sending it directly from my school).

Oh... I sent all my transcripts through LSAC. Perhaps that's my hang-up with Columbia? I knew I should have read those application instructions.
