Congrats. My status checker has said "Incomplete" since I got the email saying "Your File is now complete" on 10/26/09

Apparently when the status says "Incomplete", it just means that its under review...

Definitely call and confirm like macatak said. I was just accepted a couple of days ago but while I was waiting I checked the status checker every few days and mine never said "Incomplete".

I finally received my acceptance in the mail yesterday--it took almost 2 weeks to reach me, which is particularly absurd since I live 2 miles away.

If you call though, the very nice people at the admissions department will look you up and tell you what your scholarship is, etc.

How long did it take to review once your status changed to "Admissions Committee Review Pending"?

You should call and ask. I did when I first found out I was accepted to ask about the $$. They were friendly and told me about the scholly right away.

I got $$ from Tulane but it'll still be expensive. Right now I'm torn 50/50 between LSU and Loyola. I think it'll boil down to whether or not LSU will entertain me with a scholarship negotiation. It's a tough choice.

Yeah I'm probably going to call them later.

You in state or out of state? LSU's in-state is basically a scholy. Live in NOLA so wouldn't have to get housing if I went the Tulane/Loyola route as I would with LSU. So Tulane with $$$ would probably financial wise come near close. I'm not paying sticker for Tulane though, that's crazy. Especially when I want to practice in LA.

I had completely shut down the idea of going to Loyola after not getting $$$. Might have to go to ASD after all.

I'm OOS for LSU. I got a nice scholly but a top 33% stipulation that I don't like. It's a big gamble especially being OOS and being top 40% and possibly losing the scholly. Anyhow, I want to practice in NO and Loyola gave me a better offer with what should be a much easier gpa requirement. I'll be at the ASD. And I like NO better than BR...that's just personal preference though.

I hope my "letter of continued interest" makes an impact.

153 lsat (above their 75% mark)
3.121 gpa (above their 25% mark)

I need to find out before I send my seat deposit to Mississippi College, and I would like to attend the acceptance day to start meeting my classmates!

I don't know how the Loyola WL is, but do your best to get off of it - LOCIs, new LORs, visit, etc. Don't attend MS College unless you are fine with living in Jackson for the majority of your life at a small firm.

I will get off of it. It's just a question of when. Already sent a LOCI, and I'll send another one next week if needed, I have alumni writing/calling Loyola, and I may have another LoR being sent.

MS College wouldn't be the end of the world though. I think posts on this site can be too extreme at times. MS College is a school on the rise that teaches Civil Law which would allow me to practice in Louisiana. I would prefer Loyola obviously, it's closer to home and in the city I want to practice in.

Does anyone know when the first deposit deadline is? I'm trying to get an idea of when they might start picking people from the waitlist.

Thanks, it looks like I'm going to have to make some tough choices. The deposit for my second choice is due on the same day. Either I pay that and am out $250 or don't pay it and lose the security of having a backup if Loyola (for whatever reason) doesn't happen.

I applied late, as in a couple of weeks ago. I just got an email that said my file was complete, and decision to follow in 4-6 weeks, but no status checker info? How long did it take for you to get status checker info?
