It probably is the Dean's Cert from undergrad. I have the same issue (all boxes checked and "complete pending" status), and the Dean's Cert from undergrad is the only issue.

FYI - my undergrad just mailed it to CLS on Thursday. I called CLS and told them it might not be there by the 15th, and they said it's okay if it arrives a couple days after the 15th.

I mailed mine over 20 days ago though. It's really hard to tell whether they didn't get it or whether they're just still processing. Everyone else got it.

I'll give them a call.

One other thing to think about-- if you used CAS transcripts rather than separate official ones, CLS wants an "explanation of grades" from your law school. It doesn't show up on the checklist, but my registrar emailed it and I went complete the next day.

I attached that to my application, so that's not the problem. Thanks for the suggestion though.

I just found this thread. I went complete on 6/14 and have not heard anything yet. I am #1 in my section at a school in the low 50's. Good luck everyone! Hoping we get some good news next week!

Applied recently, and waiting to go complete. Congrats to those admitted already and good luck to everyone else.

So I'd imagine most applicants would hear something today. It would be nice to have ONE answer in this crazy process.

1 pm and no further TLS news? I'm pretty sure CLS wants a tuition deposit from those accepted on Friday by Tuesday, so that could open more spots?

Idk, I still expected something today by now from SOMEONE

I highly doubt there was a huge wave last Friday, for two reasons.
1. I don't think the representation rate on TLS is this low, judged from other waiting threads.
2. I know the stats of many people admitted to NYU (and you can check that in NYU thread). I don't think CLS would have a significantly higher standard than NYU. In other words, many of us, in terms of stats, would likely have been admitted had there been a big wave last Friday.

I agree with this. In the past two years, they released huge waves before this date, and most of us haven't heard anything. I was expecting it to be today, but at this point, who knows?

Why isn't there a huge wave yet? I thought that's how they do it. Only one person accepted so far today?

Grr, what is this--like 4 TLS acceptances reported? Even if we're only like a 25% representation (might be higher for all I know), that'd still only be about 16 students. Haven't 40-80 students matriculated over the past few years? Which means they accept even more than that.

Idk.

Edit: I assume the ppl getting in are funding out via e-mail? Anybody been dinged yet? I assume that'd be by e-mail also..

Just got in! That good news wave really did sweep me up!

Email a few minutes ago, subject line "Admit."

Stats: T30 school, top 5-6%, 2 years WE, moot court, LR. Lots of ties to the Northeast.
