For the earliest submitters I think soon, but IIRC there was a spreadsheet out there that basically said early February for anyone with around a November (give or take a week into October) complete date. I'm personally not expecting to get anything until February, and save a CLS acceptance I will be waiting patiently :D

I remember that when I submitted there was something in their application instructions that said that you couldn't update anything on your app after it goes complete. A lot of people (including me) had missed that we were supposed to include on our resume the number of hours that we did each activity, and we were sad that we couldn't resend with an updated resumes, since we had gone complete already.

That said, I would think they would definitely want to know about your higher GPA, and I doubt they'd mind your emailing to ask.

Thanks Dulc! I can never find that page. Great job on those spreadsheets by the way.
Also, they give me a little hope because the Michigan one says someone who sent theirs the date I did (11/08) heard back a few days after Christmas. I would not mind a late Christmas present in the least :lol:
But, it does look like I'll be waiting until February for Chicago. Can't win 'em all, right?

That is so far. Waiting was more tolerable when I was working 60 hours/week. Winter break FTW

Re: updating apps, I tried to submit an updated resume earlier this week due to a new job and new conference proposal acceptance, but they denied it. Oh well, at least they follow their own rules, unlike some schools.

To anyone worried about this: I didnt put the number of hours at all, and I'm in ED. I just put what the activity was and the approx dates in a very crude way - ie. "Volunteered at XXXX from 2007-2008" or something like that.

I wouldn't presume this to be me, but man is this encouraging as someone UR. Maybe? Hopefully?


Love it! Thanks for the cheering up...hopefully that streak has been going on since 12/13, lol.

BTW, saw this tweet from 5 hours ago:
"Reading, reading, reading... files completed in mid-November going to first read, earlier-completed files still moving through the process."
a first I thought they meant they were moving backwards, reading the later apps first haha, I think I figured out what they meant though.(us oct/early november peeps are past 1st read)

EDIT: Do any other law schools have twitter accounts?

Secretly, I think being a law school admissions committee person would be really fun. Maybe one day...

Great. That's most assuredly not me, which just means my competition is better than I thought. :P
