I'm curious, too. I applied 12/29; much as I would hope to hear earlier, going by last year the first acceptances mailed to people who applied in very late December onwards arrived in early February.

In review at Berkeley (be still my heart), GW, Emory, and BU. Still "pending review" at Duke, which I've been at since about two days after I submitted the app on the 5th, so I have no idea what that means.

"under review" at Berkeley = complete; "pending review" at Duke also = complete. it's gonna be a while.

Curses! I figured that was the case at Duke, but I was hoping Berkeley actually meant they were looking at it. Oh well, I applied so late and my numbers are pretty borderline at basically all the schools I applied to except a few, so I figured I was in for the long haul.

It looks like RD Columbia decisions started to go out yesterday.
How long do you think until those of us that applied after the December LSAT begin to hear back?

I'm still not even complete at Columbia...going to call tomorrow. My status checker shows they haven't received my "application fee" (which was waived) and my signed certification form, which I mailed about a month ago now.

The cert form isn't necessary for application completion at Columbia. They only need it before you matriculate. FWIW, I'm not complete at Columbia yet, either; submitted on 12/29. They say they haven't received my LSDAS report yet, but it went out on 1/6 from LSAC, so they absolutely have to have gotten it by now. I e-mailed them on Thursday after everyone else who applied around that time and later had already gone complete; they haven't gotten back to me yet. I may call next week if I don't hear back by Tuesday or Wednesday.

Post-December LSAT applicants who were auto-admits started hearing back in late January/early February last year.

Congrats! Do you mind sharing your numbers?

Generally speaking an auto-admit is usually someone who is above or very near the 75th percentile in both LSAT and GPA, although I suppose it depends on how loose your definition of "auto-admit" is.

It can depend. Someone who is probably above the 95th percentile for one number but only around the 60th percentile for the other is also an auto-admit (e.g., a 179/3.75 applying to NYU). Basically, someone who won't be denied/waitlisted without either YP or a very weak application.

I am URM = Mexican American
GPA 3.75
LSAT 157
Top 4 UC school
Double Major - Business Economics w/ accounting and Psych
Resume-Work experience is weak- softs so so-but extra currics are very unique.
Very interesting personal statement-I would dare say that are almost none like it-Very Very unique diversity/motivation essay. (the reaction most lawyers who have read it responded as such-they really liked it)

Applied to all tier 2 and lower 25 tier 1 on 1/21/10.
I just want to go to school next year. what are my chances of getting in anywhere? or am I screwed?

Even though it's getting late in the cycle, with your GPA, URM status and ugrad background, you'll be going to law school this year. It's a question of where, and with how much cash.

Since decisions on URMs are usually made later than for everyone else (because schools want to know a good chunk of the rest of their class/numbers first), applying late as a URM is probably less risky than as a non-URM. With a 3.75 GPA, you could probably shoot for the 15-30 range, even this late. Are you in-state for UCLA/Texas/Minnesota/Indiana/Illinois/Iowa? That would improve your odds, too.
