I am confused myself. My application still shows incomplete on the checker. However, I did send my unofficial transcripts. I don't know. You think it's a mistake? I didn't get an email.

Edit: I hope not since my family and I are celebrating. Hahaha I will be so bummed.

The decision was on the 20th. I can't believe I didn't know!!!!

Hmm that's weird and awesome. So where it would say "Complete" or "First Committee Review" it says "Accepted"?

Congrat! Email comes after status check, though it's Saturday, so unless they're working overtime, you'll probably get your email Monday.

Well one of those 4 days was Saturday. I'm sure it all depends on how busy they are.

It says decision made. Below that it says admitted. Above the status checker it has instructions for admitted students and a password.

It is odd, but I'm not complaining. :)

The odd thing is that below the admittance there are a list of things required for a complete application and four of mine are not checked. That's why I am a little surprised. I am guessing they just used my unofficial transcripts.

Nothing too much. It comes with a guide to Notre Dame with a lot of info. It's like 100 pages. There is also a bumper sticker for ND Law and our congrats letter. It came in a big envelope. I was super excited when I got it. The emotions are taking over. :)

did it take a while for the Admin. Office to process your guys' materials (i.e. transcripts, undergrad transcripts, rank letter, etc.)?
I sent mine in last week and I'm quite positive they were delivered last week but still not status change to App. Complete...Did they process your materials relatively quick?

Thanks for the earlier message about not worrying about the interview. It was pretty basic questions. Why do you want to transfer...what attracts you to NDLS...describe an ideal law student...etc. I was told they just got all of my transcripts in so I should be complete soon. Hopefully a quick decision. Good luck to all that are waiting

I think they processed my paperwork in about four weeks. I had my interview on May 23rd.

Hope that helps

So I plan on sending ND my check today and withdraw/decline from WUSTL. It is not an easy decision. But in the end, granted my target market is Chicago, in the event I do not get Chicago, I think being from Indiana, I can sell to employers that I want to work in Indiana if I go to ND, whereas I doubt any employer in St. Louis will take me seriously if I tell them after spending two years at WUSTL, I suddenly love STL.

Even though WUSTL has a much stronger IP program, and a gorgious campus. Not easy.

Congrats Kyle, I am still struggling to make up my mind. I am 90% leaning towards spending the money and going to Notre Dame. I spoke with an Alum from a few years ago last night who told me about his experience. He was telling me how amazing the people are. I am pretty much sold. I love St. Louis, and WUSTL is a beautiful school, but this is freakin Notre Dame.
