I just noticed that my status date changed from UR 11/? to UR 12/17 also. I'm RD. If I hear anything else I will definitely let the board know.

Still 9/30, above both medians (just to feed the theories)

anyone RD, go complete the second week(ish) of October and NOT go UR yet?
I'm worried there's a reason I'm not UR yet, like they think I was taking the December test or something.

That's probably it. In fact it's egregious enough they may think you took the September 2011 test.

nvm found it

Above both 75th (its still 173 right?)... applied in November.

Last cycle I got an outright rejection, although WLed in the other CN. I guess maybe they don't absolutely love me but with a higher LSAT score I hope I get in this go around.

I love this hypothesis (UR 9/30 here) but I am NOT getting this from last years thread.. I'm seeing a group of people that went UR early (although last year it wasn't as early- it was in November) and didn't get a second UR date while others did. They eventually got their 2nd UR date in mid-January, and every single one of them was WLed.

PLEASE dispute that? Pretty please?

ETA: It's still different- before we start freaking out- because last year it looks like their 2nd UR dates were in mid- January right before they were accepted. Apparently people aren't being accepted immediately after their 2nd UR date this year so.. lets just call it a totally different pattern?

There were also a number of people who were UR 11/25 and their statuses changed to UR 12/29 the day they got the acceptance call, rather than another December UR date that others reported.

Ooooh I see that now! I just started in January bc I thought that's when RD started for some reason! Phew. (Being on Christmas break is really bad for me, I am usually not QUITE this neurotic..)

Thanks, sometimes I love being corrected :D

From what I can tell 11/25 was the earliest UR date last year... meaning this year's 11/25 is 9/30. please let this be true please let this be true.... *explodes*

Lol, the year before last their first round of RD acceptances came out before Christmas.. is it really greedy/bad for my admissions karma to hope this happens again?

Eta: Wait, doesn't seem they've started with ED yet.. so I guess I might as well not bother with that hope

This is incredibly unlikely, because ED acceptances haven't gone out yet. From LSN it seems like 2 years ago ED decisions began to roll out 12/19, making way for 12/23 RD acceptances. I doubt they are going to get through ED on Monday and get to us Tuesday (but one can hope).
