From what I understand from previous posters, if we had gotten in it would say "congrats, admit packet mailed" or something to that effect under mailings. It might be like a "hold", but almost everyone who is held until March is either a WL or reject. :(

If I remember correctly though, the last group admitted had 'initial review complete' around 10am, and then it disappeared and they got the admit packet mailed later on. I would assume this is probably a good thing for you :)

That is true from the past two rounds. It said "Congrats, Admit Packet Mailed." However, given that this is their first year of using the status checker, they might be trying to figure out how they want to manage it. They might not have like what they were doing earlier and are trying to mix it up.

God, I hope so. I always check them when I get up in the morning and then again if people on TLS are getting updates (I am more than obsessed with the status checkers. lol), so I haven't checked it since maybe 9 a.m.. So I have no idea what time it changed. Gahhhhh every appendage on my body is crossed right now!

Still blank!

Applied 12/25. The info disappeared a few days ago, but today the font changed on my online status checker. Anyone else? I think I'm losing my mind slightly.

I'm the same way, I doubt I'll withdraw anywhere I applied. I would feel like I didn't have closure, no matter what the decisions are. (Not to mention if I took all that time and spent all that money to fill out the apps, I wanna make damn sure they're going to take the time to read them and make some kind of decision, no matter how long it takes. lol.)

I don't think I would have the power to withdraw. I'd be too curious to know if I would have gotten in, and perhaps how much money they may have offered me.

I'm guessing you would only withdraw if you had a better offer and were 100% gonna take it?
Might as well hold on otherwise.

I'd really appreciate either you or me getting some more acceptances at this point!

Have you ever tried to explain your method(/madness) to someone outside of TLS? I have. It ends with worried looks.

withdrawing before getting a decision is the dumbest thing i've ever heard. you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by waiting it out. makes sense to withdraw after getting accepted or waitlisted if you decide 100% on going somewhere else (so you can free up your spot for someone else).

I have that initial review status but then it disappeared...

I'm still waiting for lsac to process my fall transcripts. W&M asked me for them during winter break. LSAC is taking awhile -_-

Did you just get it today? Maybe they took it down to put your "Congrats" mailing line up. (wishful thinking that thats what's going to happen to all of us IR Completes. lol)

I take it from the fact that the discussion has fallen quiet that we are all now just refreshing our status checkers, hoping, and praying (for those so inclined).

I know that's what I'm doing. And also mentally debating with myself about what time I should consider their office closed and resume the obsessive refreshing tomorrow morning.

I was refreshing the Status Checker and this and NEITHER were changing. So I had to say something. Just so the scenery changed.
