Yea, what does that mean? Does anyone know if held applicants were admitted last year?

Weird. Never heard of this. I did receive an email from their admissions office that a document of mine as an addendum was received this AM.

Idk - Im at work so I can't search past threads but the tone seems to be saying "you're admittable but we want to see how the yield turns out with respect to initial batch of acceptances"

Thanks. This process can just seem a bit random, though.

So, I have had an unreasonably hard time getting my transcripts processed by the LSAC and/or to Chicago. LSAC has taken, what is now, three weeks and STILL not complete. I overnight mailed my transcript to the admissions office as per their request. The tracking number says delivered buy my application still says incomplete. The Admissions office neither answers my phone calls or emails..

I should just assume Im getting rejected, right?

i have not



I haven't either, I don't have a lot of hope because my GPA dropped a bit second semester. I do have a lot of ties to Chicago/IL, so maybe that will help.
