IN!!!!!!!! Got the call this morning

Stats for those wondering:
School ranked mid-60s (but had a good geographic reason for being at that school)
#4 in class
Interesting 4 years of work experience before law school

Also a July 18th response date. Congrats to the others who got good news today and fingers crossed for the rest!

Congratulations!

But this makes me sad I didn't get a call with #1 at low 50s school.

Don't lose heart, it's so early, they still have plenty of calls to make.

They probably review the apps in the order they receive them. Did these people go complete before you?

I have concluded, for the sake of my sanity and based on last year's threads, that the order of calls is random.

Mine says "complete ready for review," but I submitted my UG transcript via LSAC.

When you applied to law school, did you apply before you graduated? I.e., without the last semester's grades? I took a year off so my transcript has all my UG grades.

where did these statuses come from? I thought the checker never said complete or incomplete, but instead said received and ready for review.

Interesting. Mine says incomplete, but it's dated 6/27/2012. They also emailed me about the incomplete, but that was only RE: LORs, which have since been completed. I say transcript because the other schools have checklists missing the transcripts, which were processed by LSAC ~ 10 days ago. Maybe they're just slow on the update.

I think I screwed myself doing it this late though :S

No I think it just said incomplete. Maybe processing for a day or 2. But never ready for review. I've already talked to them and they said everything would be fine as far as LORs go, but I don't know...getting nervous...

Im still confused, what was your status while it said processing? I have a status (went from ready for review to under review) and a line at the top that says "Processing." Was "processing" in your status line or the text at the top?

I think it was the status line. Now my status says Incomplete Application. The message at the very top says "

In the initial processing of your application, we have noticed that your application cannot be completed at this time. Please refer to the email we sent detailing what information is currently missing from your application.
"

Again though the date is 27 June, so I hope they just haven't gotten up to updating it yet.

thanks for the explanation. I'm a little worried about my dean cert, so I'm hoping ready for review means complete, even though the top text still says processing.

I'm in the exact same boat as you. I think they would have emailed us though. Mine says complete but at the top says compiling all the stuff. I don't think its a big deal.

Congrats to all the new transfer admits and good luck to those who haven't heard back!

I am a Class of 2013 HLS transfer student, and my roommates and I are looking for a 4th roommate for our 4-bedroom apartment, as our 4th roommate just left us to go to med school. Significantly for the quick transition to orientation, EIP and the like, the lease starts 8/1. In Davis Square, where rent is significantly cheaper (and Davis Square is more fun than H Square and an easy commute to HLS). We live in a well maintained townhouse with a lot of space - PM me if you are interested and I will give you the details.

I lived in Davis for two years and this is legit, you really do want to live there.

Same. However, at the top it still says it's being processed. Is it the same with you? Also, is your requirements list empty? Mine is.
