:D

She's almost given me multiple heart attacks by continually responding to an e-mail chain that has "VCE" in the subject line... I made sure to start a new one

+1. At least something good has come out of this whole situation.

Congrats! You're not the first. Maybe some VCEs have been lost.

Location?
Postmark date?
Submit/UR date?

Congrats! And I apologize for badgering you, but I figured I'd get it out of the way.



location: philly.
I cannot find any date on or inside the envelope..
submit/ur: 11/22 / 12/16

Pretty sure you're correct. I don't think there was a 1/25 batch. The only letters so far have been dated 1/24 and 1/26.


Nope, there have been more confirmed 1/25 than 1/26s, on which there were only 2. With the second 1/26, I assume that that is legit.

Update on the mail in general for any NYC peeps still here--got the Columbia viewbook today, no postmark date, and got the infamous GULC package today, postmarked (priority) 1/28. Remember, I have the super-fast mailman--that being said, everything was on the floor in front of the mailboxes AGAIN, all wrapped up in one rubber band, and I had to dig through everyone in the building's mail to get it. It looks like the mail person just chucked the mail in the building and ran out again, haha.

I think he's going for the reverse jinx. It's a risky strategy, but let's see if it pays off.

I'll take it, given my lack of VCE thus far a change is welcomed

Update: Still no VCE, but I did finally receive my new waterproof hiking boots from LL Bean this morning! I was just about to leave for work (and the ice storm) in the awful, leaky rainboots I've been wearing all season when UPS made a surprise delivery. Maybe we will all soon receive equally fortuitous VCEs!

Nothing in the mail today. Not the biggest fan of my mailbox these days.

I concur. I will trade all the VCEs in the world (which I do not possess) for a call from 650.

Still no VCE (I think mail came already...saw the people furthest down with something stuff in their mail box). No NYU Box or whatever either. I'm pretty sure the only reason I got that Georgetown package came yesterday only because they sent it priority, same with U of M. Given the snowstorm that's about to hit the Midwest.....I will be waitng two to three years before I get mail ever again.

Uh, I haven't been following this 1 billion post thread, and I have a question.

I went complete in early January and haven't heard. I'm 50 - 75 percentile LSAT, 25 - 50 percentile UGPA with significant cool work experience.

What's goin on with my app? Do I have a chance still?

Also, what's a "VCE"?

Someone should just man up and call them and ask them to email decisions because there is no way any of us will get our mail in time and we need to make reservations about ASW, etc. No email = we know we're dinged and can move on.
