So my status checker just changed to say "A decision letter has been sent."

No phone call though, just this change. Would it stand to reason that they have mailed out dings and it is being sent by postal mail?

Mine also changed, I'm guessing they're the dings in the mail.

Had the same update as of today. If you call, they'll give you your decision. Mine was a ding, FWIW.

Called SLS. If your status checker still says "submitted for review," like mine, you are on hold for spots that may potentially open up by virture of withdrawals or acceptances at YH.

Or is anyone who has been admitted waiting to hear from a different school that they prefer and if admitted would withdraw?

Seems like everyone on TLS (I think it was just 4 or 5 of us) that was admitted is planning to attend.

Anyone else doing the law review write on? Seems a lot chiller than the Cornell write on thus far. But maybe it's just because I got one write on under my belt.


on this thread it looked like 3 total who reported acceptances, anyone else in other threads?

and regardless, waitlist doesn't look like it's gonna happen for the rest of us; there's at least 7 or 8 of us who are waiting, and there won't be nearly 7 or 8 people who decline

Changed to "a decision letter has been mailed" as of this afternoon. No call, so that looks like bad news. Good luck if you're still waiting!
