I'm FR too as of today. Almost had a heart attack when I saw the email, thought it would be a reject for sure. The waiting game continues...

SAME HERE. I was sweating bullets. It was like I was given a second chance at life (yes, I know it sounds a little pathetic, but it's true...)

It's possible...but then why weren't we rejected/waitlisted today?

Congrats to the new FR group - I'm living proof you have hope, stay positive!

Someone asked about sending in a LOCI or LOR a page or two back... just FYI I sent in another LOR but not a LOCI. I wrote a "Why Boalt" essay and didn't think I could improve on that.

Good luck everyone!!!

after looking thru last year's threads and the previous years, i don't think acceptances go out on two different days.. but rejections have...

Was part of the first FR group - just got my first rejection by status checker.

180/3.97. Start panicking, everyone ;-)

Rejected via status checker. The only consolation is not being in limbo anymore.

For some stupid reason, I declined having student members review my app. Do you guys think that will be a negative?

Officially joining the FR group. I was UR 11/18, LSAT 169, GPA 3.82 and didn't get an FR1. But I'm super happy to be moving to FR2 with the rest of you. Sorry to those who had bad news today. Best of luck to everyone else.

Accepted today after going to FR weeks ago! It's a great surprise after recently having been rejected by UCLA.

Are you supposed to send a LOCI if you've been sent to FR? I was sent today. I thought the dean said more letters won't affect your position?
