Yup, I'm guessing not getting an email today is a pretty bad sign.

If there deposit date is the 23rd maybe they will hold on to us till then and the boot. I am guess people who are around top 1% of their class may get a last minute admit from a higher ranked school. But who knows.

Accepted last Thursday. Still can't believe it. 2yr w/e. T40 top 15%. Strong ties to chicago. Only posting this to give others hope that the process is more holistic then it seems from reading all these tls postings. I can't wait to meet you all in August!!

Has anyone received a rejection yet? Anyone...? The lack of any news whatsoever is a real killer.

I just sent the Dean an email formally declining the offer to join the transfer class of 2014. Hopefully that opens up a spot for a TLSer.

Best of luck guys and gals!

Been "application complete" for the last few weeks too. Anyone been rejected yet? Pretty sure I don't have a shot at this point.

(Stats: T30, top 15-20% though school doesn't formally provide that info, moot court/journal, 3 years W/E)
