Hey, I'm just glad it's not still sitting at "complete". I began to wonder if they lost my app. :mrgreen:

I've been Pending since mid to early December [at least], and submitted in early November. I really don't understand what's taking this long!

Yeah, bummer... you need to be 21 with some rare weird exceptions.

Check out this website: http://www.bhamintlairport.com/passenger-parking.html

If I remember correctly, it costs around $120 each way to get from Birmingham to Tuscaloosa.

Are you going during the ASW? I'm sure somebody could give you a ride if that's the case. Otherwise, you could reach out to Page or Claude and see if somebody is coming the same day around the same time and see if you could carpool. And if you happen to be coming in on 3/10, I can take ya'.

Another option: craiglist ride it. It may not be 100% reliable and you have the chance to meet some unexpected characters, but I've used it to great success.[/quote]

thanks, but im going on 3/24-3/26…ill try to get some help at the dinner tomorrow

My status went to "pending" today as well.... I have decided to take it as a good thing:)

I submitted early January, and did not hear a thing or go complete until 2/3, so I'm excited to have some update at least.

Yall, Ive been pending for a heckuva while too. I don't have the numbers to get in and I don't expect to, but a man can dream, right? Because I've literally dreamed several times at night of defying the statistics and the odds and actually getting the golden phone call informing me of getting in. Haha, and then again, I check the mybama.ua.edu status checker several times a day just hoping that it changes from "pending" to something...even rejected. just something, ahhh! lol

I don't check anymore either. But I do think of 'Bama every time I listen to the music that I bought with the itunes gift cards they gave me. <3

Dear Alabama, I need closure.

Helped me scratch a Valentine's Day gift off the checklist. Now every time I look at my wife I think, "roll tide."

Someone said earlier that it's not a bad thing and I really hope that's true. They said they are just taking more time to review our apps, but I have a bad feeling about it.

Has anyone actually been rejected from Bama yet anyway?

Looking at law school numbers, it seems that they have mostly just made decisions on 166+ applicants and URMs. Maybe they'll get to the rest of us soon?

I'm assuming they "Pended" a bunch of us right before the deadline to see what comes in at the end. May only stupid people with poor numbers submit late... Roll Tide

Edit: Bama doesn't have a deadline do they.

I've been pending for over a month now so unfortunately I don't think that holds up (but I hope you're right anyway).

Will there be a wave of acceptances in time to make plans for ASW? I'd hope so, I submitted on 1/31 but was hoping to hear in time for that, since I would definitely need to visit in order to get a feel for the place.

That's why I've been irritated. I *am* 166 and a good gpa.

Same here. Plus today is my birthday, so a good phone call from them this afternoon would be a pretty awesome present.

Has anyone without a scholarship negotiated with them ? Making plans to attend ASW at this point seems useless without $.

So I applied a couple weeks ago and still haven't gone complete, however I have received in email regarding my application to an LLM program I never applied to. Is this normal?

Yes, I received the same email and contacted Page who assured me that I was being reviewed as a standard JD applicant.

The heading of my email that I received was:

University of Alabama School of Law LL.M. in Tax Application Status‏

even though I made no mention of the LLM in Tax during my app.
