You're missing some critical information... when did you submit?

End of November. No idea when I went complete but I got the status checker email 2/10.

I'm part of the initial waitlist group...the email was so nice I can't even be mad that I will wait half a year+ to hear a decision... *sigh*

Waitlisted on the status checker today, but I haven't gotten any email about it.

3.56/171/8 yrs WE/Non-URM
submitted 11/15, status checker 12/15, and I got that cryptic 'hold' email

I'll be withdrawing (or not returning the waitlist form, whatever). Northwestern loves me, that's good enough. :P

ETA: Is Feb 25 the only batch of waitlists? Did I actually manage to not notice it on my status checker for like 6 days?

I could be wrong but I think that they send the email to all waitlisters since they link the survey to accept/reject in their email...maybe check your spam? or most likely you don't care since Northwestern loves you :)

I checked my spam both in my webmail and on my computer. No email. Kinda strange. But yeah, I'm not losing sleep over it.

Holy moly, UMich's graph on law school numbers is insane. There is no wall of doom, just a sea of red, yellow and green all mixed together. I can believe that they do holistic review. Please love me, Michigan, please love me...

"Decision" via status checker 3/2. Anyone else, so far there's only one on LSN and he/she is claiming acceptance. Anyone else have their status change to decision today? I'm not optimistic for myself but thought I'd ask.

Also got "decision" on status checker today, though I've already found out yesterday via ASW.

Status checker reverted back to 3/1/. Possibly some decisions coming out today?

I'm also at 3/1, but I don't know if it "reverted" or not. Did some of your status checkers say 3/2 or something? Also, Michigan mails acceptances/rejections, right? So, even after we get a "decision" it still might be a week or more before we know which it is.

Right. My status checker did show 3/2 yesterday, and today it is back to 3/1. Even though they mail decisions, if accepted, it is possible to login to ASW after the status checker shows "decision." If denied, it isn't possible to login.

I'm also 3/01. I feel like mine also reverted back. Coulda sworn I saw a 3/02 update yesterday, along with "Decision," which is still there.

hmm mine was definitely at 3/2 yesterday and is now at 3/1 but still says Complete, so I guess I shouldn´t get my hopes up.

I would too, but IIRC it was like this last time a big wave went out.

ETA: Last Thursday the date "got stuck" and Friday the big waitlist wave came out. Also, some people were accepted too.

Did it get stuck for everyone or only for people that had changed to "Decision"?

It looks like everyone. It starts on page 142 I think.

I also looked at the big waves of decisions from last year and there was a big waitlist wave at the end of Feb and a big wave of decisions at the beginning of March.

If only law schools knew how much anxiety they give us, with every slight deviation from their usual mode of behavior.

Also, stuck at 3/1. Also says "complete."
