T25 (does this mean top 25 US N&R Schools?)
If so, then my stats are T25, Top 1-2%, and did an interview last week. Also updated to 5/20 Under Review.

Haha, I dunno i just picked a random username.
I wonder how competitive this thing is. It seems there aren't that many posters at all this year onto this thread. I looked up last year (and previous year)'s ED thread and there are a ton of people freaking out by this time in May.

TTTT = Tier 4 school. Generally, the unranked schools on U.S. News.

T2 = Schools roughly ranked 50-100 on U.S. News.

T25 = Top 25 U.S. News Schools.

T1 = Top 50 U.S. News Schools

T14 = Top 14 U.S. News Schools

T6 = Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Chicago, Columbia, NYU

So... based on last year's decisions, is everyone here thinking that they will make decisions tomorrow?

Ahh.. the wait!

Hey thanks for the positive reinforcement.

If you are anything like myself and other law students I know, we all think primarily of things that could go wrong when there is any shred of doubt. I hear it makes good lawyers, but it is not the most fun personality trait.

Good luck to you.

No man, I'm exactly the same way. The way I'm keeping myself sane is by remembering how few they admit through ED, and am not really expecting a miracle. I'm assuming I won't get in, and am hoping that if I'm deferred, the fact that I applied early helps my RD app. I recommend that everyone else try thinking of it this way; it takes a lot of the stress off.

I think those are Early Decision people that have already had interviews etc. ED apps were due early may so don't feel behind
