Received but not complete at: LSU, Florida State, Texas, Alabama, and Cornell

Heard Nothing:

Today Vandy sent an email saying: Application Complete in the subject and "We have received all required materials for completing your application to Vanderbilt Law School." in the email... but status checker still says


Vanderbilt's status checker changes over at midnight, I believe. I would be it will say complete tomorrow morning if you check it.

Congratulations! When did you go complete? Did you status checker say "decision in 2-3 weeks"?


Thanks!

Went complete Jan. 8.

To be honest, hadn't checked my status since as I really didn't think a decision would be back that quickly. But the e-mail they sent did have the 2-3 week timeline, so I guess they were pretty much spot on.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one!

I am a very late app, like earlier this week (LoR issue, had to resolve from overseas). I got status checker from GULC and UVA (complete in <12 hrs), waiting on everything else. Yale app going up later this week. Rest are Columbia, Chicago, NYU, UCLA, Texas, Berkeley, Cornell.

Just got into Duke, applied around Jan 11th via Priority Track. Very excited for my first response, and a great one at that.

I applied between Jan 5th-9th. Here's what I have so far:

Duke--Accepted on 1/18 via PT. Went under review on 1/8
Columbia--Completion pending since 1/8
UVA--Complete/Pending Review/Decision since 1/8
GT--complete 1/11
BC--complete 1/19
Harvard--Received, completion pending 1/6
Vanderbilt--Complete 1/18
Northwestern--received 1/8

I still haven't gotten an email from Berkeley about the status check thing even though I sent my app on 1/6. I might call them soon to make sure they got everything even though it is complete on LSAC.

In at Wayne State...

Not the best school, but solid back-up plan for us Michiganders. Also where I did my UG.

Complete 1/12
Decision Sent 1/20

Nag nag nag. They'll think about doing it on February 1 otherwise.

Also, get your dean to fax the form to Stanford before mailing it. (They need to mail the original, too.) That will get it to Stanford about a week faster.

Did you ever get a "received" email from Stanford? I didn't, and applied 1/7, UG mailed Form B on 1/12 (and might have faxed it, too, but they kept referring me to different departments and would only tell me that they mailed it; frustrating).

Apparently, the dean of my school hasn't sent the uconn cert. form either. I'm so pissed right now.

I guess I should think about asking them, then, just in case.

Does Rutgers-Camden have a status check? My report on LSAC went complete on 1/7 but I never received a status update from the actual school and now I'm a little concerned.

I guess this won't really help you much at this point, but I did the following and it worked very well:

Send the Form B to the appropriate dean and include in the package a preaddressed overnight FedEx envelope to the address listed on the Form B from your dean's office. Since you have the tracking number, this has the added benefit of allowing you to track exactly when your school sent the form out, when Stanford received it, and how long it takes them to acknowledge receipt. You can use this to pester your Dean if you feel the need.

Doing this, I saw that my package arrived at Stanford on a Friday and I got confirmation of my complete application the following Wednesday.

I have no proof of this, but I've used this method for several items in my applications and going off of some of the turnaround times I've read about on TLS, sending things by FedEx seems to get your stuff processed more quickly. Might just be the size and bright colors of the envelope or something.

No, they don't. I wouldn't worry about it, especially if you got that slip in the mail about your app being complete. I thought their reponse was unusually early.

Congrats on duke! I sent my Berkeley application in later than you and went complete 1/11.
