Not that I know of. I've got a good feeling about tomorrow though.


I did, but 3/2 was not my first IR date.

Same as dswimmer...I went IR 11/17, 1/31, and 3/2 before a DF 3/7

okay thanks for the updates!!

another question...several pages back (not sure where) someone mentioned that law apps were down this year. have schools released that kind of info already? or, is there an article on the subject that anyone has read?

Individual school data may be harder to come by since some schools probably aren't releasing it yet, but if you have a pre-law dean at your undergrad that may be a good resource to use as they tend to talk to admissions officers at a lot of schools.

I had a call from (818) 614-4463 this morning and my iPhone says it's Northern Los Angeles. Any chance this is USC (or UCLA)? Probably just a wrong number haha.

818 is LA but neither school.
USC = 213
UCLA = 310

Soo if we still haven't heard are we most likely going to be waitlisted? This wait is torture... They must be sending out a few more batches of decisions before the April 15th Law Day right?! hmph.

I think the longer you wait/the more review dates you get, the more likely you are to be waitlisted. BUT, that said, I think there are going to be waves of admits until at least the beginning of April, so let's sit tight.

3 review dates...if they wanted to admit me, they would have done so on Monday. But if they wanted to reject me, they could have also done so on Monday, so...they're unsure...it's mid-March...therefore...waitlist? What was the latest round of admits from last year?

Is anyone still sitting at complete? How is this possible? I'm expecting to be waitlisted, but still, someone's gotta read my app!!

Yup :| It's a little ridiculous. I think we deserve as thorough a review as anyone else, but I don't see how that's possible if we're still sitting at Complete and they need all apps done by May.

I know :(. I guess we have kinda auto-waitlist numbers. So maybe they know they have through the summer to make their decisions about us.

Keep your head up! We still have a chance.

Let's not give up hope yet! In past year half of the people at 3.5-3.6/168 have been accepted without a wl.

I think the next round may be the last; I didn't see anyone with 3/2 as the first IR date getting a decision yet, and I would wager that when that group gets admits it will be the last wave before the door swings mostly shut.

Those numbers perfectly describe me. 168/3.58 and I've been complete since early December.

FWIW, people have been accepted without ever going IR, so...

Whoa, we are exact numbers twins. And yeah I think while there's some sort of pattern to when they accept certain people the whole complete/in review thing seems pretty random to me. I've been in IR since December, but my last IR date is Jan 31 whereas a lot of people seem to have review dates that updated in February and March.

I used to follow this thread but I've been on vacation for the past week and and I don't feel like scrolling back. So I have to ask.... anyone still under review as of 11/22?
