Went DF yesterday. Got an email today inviting me to an admitted students reception. Hope that's not an accident and that the letter in the mail holds good news.

Having compulsively read every post on this thread, I don't think it's an accident.

+1

I'm hoping they are speedy about the 3/2 IR group; it would be nice to have a decision before I'm home in LA for spring break.

Don't worry just yet mr_toad.

So you're saying there's a chance... :)

Do I take this to mean that only certain region's applicants are notified more quickly by e-mail due to receptions? I live in the most-poverty stricken county of a rust-belt state. People don't even want to fly over us, much less hold a reception here...

I'd suspect this is correct. The reception by my area (I'm from NYC suburb) is tomorrow. Most likely why I got the early notification.

And I'd be shocked if you didn't get in with them kinda numbers. GL2U

Thanks. I have no complaints about my cycle, but I've had dreams of moving to Cali for years now, and given the right kind of money, I could definitely be tempted.

+ 1 I live in CA no need to attend a regional reception when I can attend Law Day in April.

Out of curiosity, how many review dates did you have?

Ah thanks. And other admits? dswimmer? I'm just wondering if 3 review dates is equally common as 2 review dates among admits.

I only have 2 IR's. Submitted 2/1, complete ~2/16 (when my LOR's arrived, so I'm assuming this is the date), IR 2/17, then IR 3/4, DF 3/7.

I don't know if I am an admit, but I have had 4 or 5 review dates since early December. I submitted in October. Hope this helps.

no admitted students email for me... but I do live in SoCal, so hopefully that's why. If they mailed them out today, I should know by tomorrow

Perhaps there was no regional reception upcoming (there's one very soon in NYC I believe) for you? Or as someone mentioned above, they figured you'd just drop by one day?

So I know the USC acceptance letter is rejection-letter size. Anyone know what color it is?

What does the rejection letter look like?

Yes, because I care about those two seconds between seeing and opening that much...

I think someone said it looks just like the admit letter.

Correct. Although I got the email before I got the letter.
