Wow you submitted before me and just went under review? I submitted 9/13, under review 9/29, then again under review 10/6.

But I guess it's all the same now since I'm STILL under review. Seems like we'll all be in for quite a wait...:(

I was looking at lawschoolnumbers.com and saw someone who went under review in November... he didn't get a final decision till February.

Did you find out you were under review via email or by checking the status checker? Thanks

I can read. Since it is already October 12 I don't think this cycle is going to have October acceptances like the graph. Or those were people who just neglected to mention that they were PT. Either way, that is why I said Nov.

I don't think some of them just neglected to mention they were PT because if you look at their completion and decision dates they are more than 2 - 4 weeks apart so they must be RD.

A lot of us are under review now, someone is going to get a decision soon I think.

Possible, I just erred more on the side of longer considering many other schools have their first batch of decisions at "under review" for weeks or even months.

My application went complete and "ready for review" 9/27/2010. How long before it goes under review do you think? I'm getting antsy.

It took me 2 weeks to go from ready for review to under review :(

And I've been under review for 2 weeks and counting...

9/15 complete, still ready for review.. I'm pretty low GPA for them wouldn't be surprised if it takes a few months for them to decide for me.

So I wonder if they index the files and review by the order of the index?

They've got to do this to some extent. I mean, for someone with borderline numbers, they might not be sure until February if they are willing to accept them or not.

Then does the index number on your LSDAS report as sent to the school have any bearing on this? Is that their index?

Sent 10/12, complete 10/13. Wishing I somehow were already under review but I know it won't happen for a while.
