"Both" updated to "Full"......hmmm


I just went 18 to 12/3 TOO! I feel like we're blood brothers or whatever. Are you willing to try the admitted students site?

Yay! One step closer. As a 12/1er, I tried the site earlier and wasn't able to get a password and such.

congrats! I was wondering how schools treat reapplicants who have been denied previous cycle. New cycle new chance? Or do thy pull your old file/application? When I spoke with the admissions director of Cleo she stated that for the most part if a school has denied you in a past cycle you are an auto ding the next time around. Glad to hear your experience was different. Did you substantially improve your numbers? In my case I took a significant risk with my ps topic and I think it backfired with some of the more conservative schools. If my cycle turns out horribly I may just rewrite everything, secure new a recommendation and submit a whole new application package.



what i had heard was that something significantly different can definitely make the difference - in my case, i brought my LSAT score up by 8 points. last year i was below their 25%, now i'm a little over their median. everything else, my ps, my recs, are exactly the same. i did change jobs but am still doing the same line of work (public health/international development).

some schools however (upenn i know for sure) do require you to submit a new personal statement and recs regardless of whatever else might have also changed in your app.

good for you for being bold with your ps topic, most of us probably aren't and so i'm sure your grabbing their attention with it.

Nah you're part of the team. No one has been able to access the site without being in. Besides it just opened up today.

Anybody care to speculate what it means to go from a 12/1 complete BACK to an 11/22??

This is getting ridiculous.

I have no idea. But you did make me nervous enough that I had to check and see if I was still at 12/1 (I am).

Did you send something in later than the rest of your app?

That's what they get for leaving us behind :lol:

j/k. That does suck. Maybe they meant to put you in the much cooler, 12/3 group? :lol:

I don't think the site would work for us on the first day anyway.

Has anyone heard from a LOR writer that Dean Cornblatt emailed them to thank them for their insight and time?

I just got word from one of mine that such an email was sent to him this morning. It doesn't say anything to the effect of we're letting [slamp] in, but it references me and the LOR writer by name. I wonder what this means, especially since I'm such a splitter.

FYI, this was the same LOR writer for almost all of my apps and he hasn't said anything about hearing from other schools.

Yes--roughly the same dates. I'm guessing I'm in for at least another update around 12/6-12/9 and then we'll know. Hang in there :)

Dean C seems to do stuff like this - he has called admits personally to praise their statements before they get decision letters. Probably a good sign.
