I sent my app on Jan. 2nd, received the status checker on Jan. 20th. Definitely one of my top choices so it was a small relief to get the status checker. Of course that was followed by the anxiety of using the status checker way too often.

I'm complete or under review at Harvard (itching for that first ding), NYU, Columbia, Virginia, Michigan, Georgetown, BC, BU, Notre Dame and WUSTL.

Gulp.

When did you submit for Harvard, Columbia and BC? Just curious for a comparison of dates, as I applied right after scores were available and haven't gone complete at any of those (nor at NYU, but I've learned to accept their arbitrariness in communication).

Could you just post your submit dates for all of those schools?

Harvard, Columbia, NYU, Virginia and Michigan were all 12/29-12/30.

Georgetown, 1/06.

BU, BC, ND and WUSTL I sent out before I took the December LSAT, but in each case I submitted an addendum asking them to hold my application until my December score.

I'm still not complete, or haven't received notification that I'm complete, at Penn, Northwestern or U-Chicago.

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.


I did this and it was delivered Jan 11; rest of the application sent on Jan 3. Should I be concerned that I have not gone complete?

Stanford's good about replying to emails; I don't think they'd mind you asking about Form B and completion, as long as you made it clear you just wanted to make sure everything was received.

Honestly, if you have delivery confirmation, I'd just chill for at least a little while longer. If they've got it, they'll get to it. No need to bug them.

Columbia's still saying they haven't received my app fee (aka a printout of my fee waiver) and my signed certification! I emailed them about it a few days ago and haven't heard back. If still nothing by Monday, I'm calling. Grr!

Any other post-December LSAT people not get a single response yet? Most of my applications went complete the first week of January but I haven't heard anything since, except one that switched to "pending committee review". That was early this week, and still no decision rendered. So impatient I started filling out more applications last night. This wait is brutal.

You applied in the first week of January, or later, and you're expecting a final decision two weeks later?

Im confused, I spoke with several admissions people and they told me if you submit through LSAC (credit card payment or fee waiver) that serves as your certification and they dont need the printed and signed letter...

It seems like those who submitted and asked to hold for December test benefited from an earlier complete/decision date. =/ Sigh. Still "complete" or "in review" at half the schools. Applied last week of December.

They told me via email to submit my app through LSAC, select check as my form of payment, print out the email granting me the fee waiver and mail everything to them.

hmm.. anyone else care to weigh in?

edit: just spoke to them again and I got the same answer I got earlier .. this is making me sweat a little bit here..did they say why you needed to submit it despite having "electronically certified" through LSAC?
