What do you mean letter "dated 1/26". Can that be right?

People in the Midwest getting it already is kind of disheartening, but of course I haven't gotten any mail all week including that supposed G-Town packet (where did that idea come from again?). And now it's snowing over here. :cry:


P.S. Wait another batch? My last name is late....oh boy.

But I think now we know that it takes no more than a day to arrive for NYCers. So...does that mean today or bust? (or with the snow...tomorrow or bust?)

My vote's with tomorrow. That also expands my hope period to tomorrow if it follows the same time pattern to get to LA.

@mouse: When did you submit? Just wondering if maybe the earlier applicants were at the bottom of the pile since they had all the newer decisions on top of them.

I still say the GULC thing holds, because that was dated around 1/24 and if tha'ts not here, how could something from yesterday be?

Really don't think it is today or bust for NYCers. I found a person on LSN with really similar stats to absolutazn who applied early November last year and didn't get accepted until March 29th (http://lawschoolnumbers.com/mysticfeline/jd). So there's definitely more than 1 or 2 big batches.

I think mail coming from DC and mail just going within new york would travel along different channels and be delayed differently.

So... I got a GULC packet dated 1/25/11 today in the midwest. Still nothing from Columbia.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN...

Yeah definitely could be delayed differently, but if you don't have GULC then it probably does mean that there's been at least SOME delay.

With different waves this all gets so confusingggg!

Also for what it's worth, I got the GULC thing dated 1/24 today with my VCE. Not so sure this really means anything though...
