I agree. Looks like a first wave of GTFOs.

Why GULC? Seems like your employment opportunities would be pretty solid, no?

@ Jessuf,

I feel pretty good about your chances. GULC likes top1%. Means you are a gunner.
Friend of mine got in with those numbers in years past from a t4

Why do you guys think the people who got updates today are the first wave of GTFOs?

Again, not to be mean or anything, but a top 10% in T4 likely wouldn't get in over a top 2% at a T1. Just would seem really weird. And most all of the non-changers have better stats than the changers. Just seems like it would end up going that way due to those factors.

All of us are "maybe admit" at best. while some LEGIT numbers have no status update.

The only (and relatively irrational) thing I can think of is GULC thinks we have acceptances into GW and want sto poach us quickly -- while thinking that the higher ups don't give a shit about GW and won't apply there anyway.

But I think that that line of thinking is, more or less, a pipe dream.

My numbers aren't great and I didn't get an update:

12%
T50

But that could just mean I'll be the next round of rejects.

The best pipe dream I can come up with is that they have more people working on the T2 and T3 applications because there are simply more of us..... So we get updates and the T1's havent been updated yet.

Just don't see this being a good thing, though. Like I said -- buddy of mine at my school is top 2%. No change. I am top 5%. Change. .1 or so difference in GPA might not mean much, I guess, but :: shrugs ::

Just being negative on this. Will make me happier if I get in and not as dejected if I don't.

Well - while I expect that this status update is a bad thing. I looked back at least years thread and this is what I came up with.

Possible Timeline:

It looks like the Admiss Office is 3 days behind where they were last year, if the updates actually mean anything.

It is possible that some people might get an update to Under Review over this weekend, but that will likely happen on Monday/Tuesday.

Probably get some Decision Reached, status updates by Wednesday-Friday.

Then if you can get on to the admitted students website (assuming that they havent fixed this) you got in. Generally it took 3 days after going DR to be able to get on the site.

We're also an absurdly small sample size. As someone said, they get like 600 transfer applications for EA & RD, yet there are like 15 of us splitting hairs. Let's not forget that it's 15 of us (out of probably over 150 applicants) on an online law school forum, we're obviously a very skewed sample. I mean, the first wave of changes last year meant they got in, same with the year before that. I still have hope for everyone.

Was that the trend for both years? I know last year that they got one update (18th) and the 2nd shortly after (20th).

What was the year before?
