Well, to add to the excitement, in addition to all of these e-mailed acceptances, I just received a vomit colored envelope in the mail today. The funny thing is, it was postmarked on the 3rd of February! Take what you will from that. I'm in Utah. Who knows what took it so long, but perhaps others will be receiving long delayed letters soon. Or maybe my mail man just lost the letter behind the driver's seat. I suppose I'll never know.

For the record, as compared to the 2013 entering class, my LSAT is at their median and my GPA is above their 75th percentile. I received a transcript request on the 11th of January.

Thanks law monkey, Knock, and philly! Y'all are awesome (even without the congratulations :) ). And I remember seeing that all admit envelopes are vomit (?) colored? Mine was white, so don't freak out if you get a white one, just open it before reacting..

Also- I just got the admitted students binder too. Did anyone in this position call them or email them? I'll probably call them tomorrow when they are open, but it'd be cool to find out sooner. Thanks!

I just said this in the forgotten thread, but congrats again Indy.

Argh, more people keep hearing back, and there are fewer and fewer people left standing. I have this terrible fear that all the other forgottens are going to get accepted this week, and I'm going to be left all by myself...only to get my ding letter next week! CLS is literally driving me insane.

If you don't get in you can always be on reserve with me. I will be your friend if you end up there. Hope you get in though.

At this point I feel like I have to be admit/ding. I think I would've heard by now if I'm in the middle. Obviously I don't know this; it's just what I think. :)

Some of us are still here, good and forgotten.

When were the complete dates for the people who got decisions today? I'd guess that a lot were from the December group...

I submitted in October but only went complete 1/25 (my school transcript didn't have my degree conferment date originally..). But I was one of those who only got the admitted student binder and no first letter. I emailed them so I'll let y'all know tomorrow if it was a mistake and I got it by accident or whatever. Hope that helps.

My application was listed complete on the 29th of November. I originally submitted all materials on the 2nd of November.

You don't go UR at CLS. The last update is only to complete, so you never know when/how many times they actually look at your file.

So you just wait for a letter at some point after complete right?

Yep. You can start expecting something right around 4 or 5 months after going complete.

got home late and found two big envelopes in the mail from Columbia!!!! Very excited!! Didn't become complete until 1/19 so I'm also very surprised to hear back so soon.

See if I ever try to get a little encouragement again. Now I'm going to go to bed and have nightmares about PC load letters preventing my decision letter from printing.

Ha! I like you. You'll get in.

Hold on to your hat.
