My status also turned into " File reviewed, no decision reached." I sent the application last week and got the complete email on 2/2. Why they reviewed so fast? Only one week? Is it a bad sign?

How long were most of you sitting at "Under initial review by committee"? I've been there since Monday, and it's getting pretty frustrating. Just want to hear from UF early enough to have time to consider my options.

:roll: Should have applied earlier then.

Considering there are people who have been stuck at no decision reached since October, I don't think you'll find sympathy here. Its been... 5 days?? I would expect a few weeks if you aren't auto-admit/ding.

I'd actually be glad to hear "no decision reached." Five days seems like a long time for an INITIAL review.

EDIT: Letter's in the mail.

yea ive been stuck endlessly on various review stages. i dont even bother looking unless im into watching paint dry. a few days is irrelevant in the scheme of things.

Does anyone have/know the tentative schedule for ASW, aside from the fact that its 11-6 on Friday?

And for those of you touting t14 over UF, wouldn't you be worried by incurring over 150k in student loans?

150k debt at a t14 which provides a reasonable shot at making 150k after graduation (or a decent PI/Gov't job that will qualify for LRAP/IBR) isn't that bad of an idea, especially if (as mentioned here) the intent is a field as competitive as IP (the only way in is likely through a T14).
UF isn't awful, it just provides no mobility or any kind of likelihood of attaining a medium-high paying job to pay off the debt you do incur.

I'll be getting there Thursday night around 8. I would like to see what the nightlife is like and plan on going out with a couple of friends, one of which is currently a student at the law school. If you'd like to join us let me know!

Hehehe, only gatorlizzy is invited! I'm sure that was an open-invite. I'm sure I'll be stuck working the night before (maybe some of you will randomly end up at the restaurant I work at), but I requested off for Friday so a bunch of us should definitely wander over to a bar at midtown after ASD is over on Friday!

Ah I see. Looks like we did it about the same time. Unfortunately I don't have the same status. If it says decision mailed, that means you're definitely in?

Yep... I don't think I'll be doing the ASD since I'm almost sure I'll be attending elsewhere, but I will definitely be at the happy hour :)

Law review is throwing a happy hour because we finished our notes. Free beer + substantially less responsibility = win.
