For what it's worth, my friend got his phone call before his status changed to decision letter sent.

The thing is, if it's happening to a few people my guess is this means rejected because I don't think they're going to be accepting multiple people at once...most likey a trickling of acceptances as slots become available...that's my best educated guess.

What does the glitched status say?

Its a pretty good guess. Thing is mine changed to exactly what it changed to when I was accepted by my original school. They could have also just counted up how may new empty spots they had, and split everyone into "in," "out," and "continued to wait" piles, and that is what the status checker change is reflecting.

This thread (and the neuroticism in it) is a great argument for why status checkers should not exist.

+∞, unless of course you're the person working the phones in the admissions office. I'd just call all the more.

Yes-- im still "submitted for review". Called SLS and they said they are planning to make all decisions by the end of the month. In other words, if you're still "submitted for review" then you're not out yet. I take it as a defacto waitlist.

The woman also said that there is a way to compete for the write-on even if accepted later. I wasn't 100% sure what she meant by this but she said late admit could still write-on. Aug 1 is also the OCI deadline so we'd still be able to bid.


the way i understand the purpose for the write on going on now is so results will be in before OCI. if you got in late, you could still do the write on and provided your score on the packet was above a certain level (i don't remember what it is anymore) you make it on. you just wouldn't know for OCI.

Hmm...my SLS status checker used to say Decision Letter Sent at the top, but now says nothing. No current status or current status date either. I'm sure that still doesn't mean anything positive. Oh well...

Most likely credited. I'll be crossing my fingers for a morning call though! Cmmmon Stanford!

Hey everyone. Thought I'd join this thread. I'm waiting to hear from NYU. My undergrad took forever to send the college questionaire, but it should be there by now. My concern is that they never even called me to tell me it was missing. I didn't apply to any other schools.

Bad risk management, no? Why did you only apply to NYU? Surely Columbia would have been a good alternative, and perhaps Cornell, Penn, Harvard and maybe GULC for east coast schools?

Maybe today is the day at Harvard. Spoke to a few other people still waiting by pm (anyone else still waiting please let me know). Everyone has competitive strong numbers but nobody is an absolute autoadmit. I guess then that we are a defacto waitlist. Although every year H has admitted some ppl after Y and S I'm starting to think we might be like the batch of ppm harvard kept around last year until the first week of august and then rejected.

As far as CLS goes, it seems like most admits received their acceptances within about a week of going complete. I went complete last Wednesday night, so if I don't hear anything by tomorrow, I will assume its a no.

I've been complete for more than a week, so +1.
I seriously just want NYU/CLS to send rejections and put me out of my misery :lol:.

i've been complete (and under review) at CLS and NYU since 6/27...that'll be a month tomorrow, and no response or change. what does this mean? rejection on the way probably, right?

Well, the only school I really want to go to other than my current school is NYU, it's always been my dream law school. Family member is an alum. It's a very easy commute from my house so I could save money on housing. Only Columbia would also be a feasible commute from my house, but I'm just not really interested in Columbia.

Well you very well may be stuck at your current school. What school is it?

Has anyone waiting on NYU called to ask when they expect to release most of their decisions? Does it not seem like most people are still waiting or am I being overly optimistic?
