yes. so is waiting for ages after going in review.

Thanks.

True. The wait is probably exacerbated by the fact that they don't really do decisions before mid-Dec..

Still in review as of 12/8. I really want USC because of their entertainment law courses.

I have family visiting for the holidays and i was hoping to have a decision by Xmas... Not looking too likely

Has anyone gotten an official decision yet? My status checker still says "decision finalized 12/8" but I haven't received anything.

I have DF 12/8 no mailings - haven't heard a thing. Do they usually call? How do they typically notify?

It took me 18 days to go complete after submitting, and still not in review, I would find ^ very comforting.

That's surprising considering your stats...
Also 18 days to go complete? Maybe they needed something from LSAC/your school like a Dean cert/LOR. If not, that seems long for USC.

It was because of a Dean's cert, just unfortunate it took them that long to process a piece of paper that said "She graduated on good standing and we have no record of any academic or disciplinary misconduct." :(

who knows anymore. i've been IR for a month and 8 days

honestly, though... with no mailings having gone out yet and only a few DF, i'd say it's too early to worry.

I'm taking my last undergraduate final tonight, a decision from USC would really make the future more certain for me!

If my decision has been finalized since 12/8 and I haven't heard, is that a bad sign?

Don't think so. Haven't seen any of the DF 12/8 people get anything in the mail yet (good or bad).

NO ONE has gotten any mailings yet. I'm going to go ahead and say they are waiting to finalize a few more apps before they send out mailings at the end of this week or beginning of next.

Has anyone received this email?

"Thank you for submitting your electronic application to USC Law School.
From time to time, we like to have our applicants check to make sure the current address we have on file is correct.
We would appreciate it if you would take a look your address using the online status checker. If the address is incorrect or incomplete, please let us know by sending an email to: admissions@law.usc.edu. Please let us know by Monday, December 20, 2010."

I got excited for a USC email, and it was a disappointing email about my address. Still, it seemed like a somewhat strange email. I submitted a few weeks ago, and went complete a few days ago, it's still the same....

^ That's what I'm hoping!! Unless of course they want to send me a rejection, then I don't want it.

I got that exact same email this evening, and had the same thought, that they're confirming before letters go out. I think they're one of the only schools that doesn't call or email, so it would make sense.
