I applied Thurs so maybe they're waiting until the paper one gets in? I guess if I don't hear anything, I'll call on Tues or Wed.


I don't remember exactly but I think mine took a while. Give it 7-10 days. I don't think theres a point in calling because it'll come when it comes.. pressuring them (esp within a week) seems like a bad idea IMO.

But, if you have taken the LSAT prior (this would be your third shot), there is even more of a reason to not retake. He said while they def take the highest score into MOST consideration, they do look at if you have a lower score sitting around (I do, and he said this can hurt you against a candidate with the same #s) so its even more important to apply early. IMO, apply, see if you get waitlisted (you clearly might just get in!) and then figure it out.


And I got the newsletter too but I wasn't worried bc its from Mr. Jake and I'm sure he doesn't personally send out decisions haha.


was the example they used 164 to 166, or you were just illustrating the point with that guys score? because 162-164, 163-165, and 164-166 are the 3 scores that have a 2 point jump and can affect their 75th percentile.

The exact score in question was mine, so 163-165.

Peek a boo!! (cont'd from FSU thread) the earliest I can find for someone last cycle going UR was 11/12/09. Also, the first decisions were sent 11/30/09. Hmmmmmmmm.....

Hey lol now we're in the UF thread! And your research is amazing, you always have the dates from last year haha.. So maybe we should be hearing back the middle of this month? :shock:

LSN is strange bc it shows that rejections didn't come out until, like, March. Acceptances started 11/30.. then continued through Dec and Jan.... so if I don't hear back by early-mid December, I will begin to freakout. Prepare yourselves. :D

I just checked my status this morning. It changed from "Under review by committee" to "Under initial review by committee" ... the date is still the same, though. So maybe they're just clarifying how early in the process I am..?

I'm worried regardless because my LSAT is a little low. Not sure if we should be worried about that particular status though :(

I'm in the same boat with my LSAT. I'm just afraid this means they've looked at our apps but don't think we're string enough to do any thing right now. I don't want to wait until March! Has anyone else had the same status? Barbie?

Mines the same too. I don't think it means we aren't strong enough... since we ALL got it. Hopefully not! Its officially early November, so maybe that means they actually began LOOKING at them today, instead of compiling them, etc. I can't find anything in the old threads about it. Someone could call ;) haha but def. not me this time!

If in doubt-- Ask ildeuce! He's above both 75th percentiles. He's our auto-admit ringer, so hopefully he has that status too!

Mine changed, too!! Seems sort of arbitrary, as if someone went into the system and said "I think this sounds better" haha

:lol: Mine also switched to "under initial review." This happened at one other school I applied to... I can't remember... but I'm pretty sure it's just an update to let you know that it has just begun and there is no decision yet.

Haha that's probably the case. Either that, or someone thought "hey, let's see how much conversation we can generate by adding one word to everyone's status... it'll be funny!"

I went complete pretty quickly after having filled out the residency information. I would say no longer than a week.
