if your IR with a refreshed date that means your app has been passed off to a new admissions committee

I'm not sure honestly. On the one-hand, you aren't a shoe-in because someone needed to take a second look, but you aren't outright rejected either. It could be good or bad.

I like USC a lot and would love to get in....but at least I have Texas. I wonder why USC hasn't sent any mailings out yet? Seems like they are behind the curve on that.

kinda the same. I went DF 12/8, got excited that I'd soon have a decision in hand. Oops. 20 days later, I'm still wondering where it is and why they're hoarding decisions, and it's not exactly endearing USC to me haha

I have been complete as of 11/5 with no status update since then. Sorry if this has been asked before but it actually changes to Under Review, you all are not just assuming?

I also can guess that this isn't the best sign for me...?

it does change to under/in review -- I was under review for about a month -- but I don't think you should be worried that you're still at complete. While none of us knows what goes on in the USC office, the fact that it's taking a while for you to go IR doesn't mean anything, let alone a bad sign, because they haven't really even evaluated your app yet.

They don't seem to be sticking to this this year.

I assume decisions will be given out mostly in Jan/Feb.

just realized I got a date update on 12/25. Starting to think status dates are pretty meaningless... I can't believe anything too significant happened with my app on Christmas day.

Maybe the DF 12/3, 12/8 people will get something in the mail today/tomorrow (I hope so) I can't imagine how frustrating it must be for you all!

Good luck to us in reviewers! :)

I am still only complete from early October. This means I have no chance, right?

WL, maybe ... ? :(
But none of us really know so a long wait could result in something positive even if a long wait isn't necessarily indicative of something positive.

Does something show up under "mailings" once they've sent something, or are applicants completely in the dark throughout the entire process?

Yes, I'm feeling disheartened, as you should be too. My first cousin is a 2L at GW in the top quarter of his class and isn't even getting sniffs at jobs. However, the job market is terrible right now no matter what you intend to do.

I share the same date but not the sentiment. Call me the optimist but things usually work out fine if you work/try/want/slave hard enough.

This. We are the c/o 2014. There is no telling what the prospects will look like in three years. Stay positive, peoples.

Not sure I agree with that, but I have a different outlook: I have nothing in my life, no evidence, that I will not demolish law school and be a success. I have decent evidence that I will. I recognize that this is arrogance of a very high order, but either the job market will be better in three years and I'll be fine, or the job market won't be, and I'll be screwed no matter what I do.

Only regret is I'm not doing leveraging my GPA when it's valuable.

Don't worry. Things will either improve by the time we are looking for jobs, or the student loan bubble will collapse in 2009 housing market style leaving us first in line for the bailout. :)
