The 1-4 makes a lot more sense now, but that still seems awfully early, doesn't it?

I thought it seemed early too, but search for Texas Accepted 2011 threads. Seems like Texas just gets the ball rolling early. A lot of people have been accepted already.

Changed from Current Status: Complete and Decision Status: Pending (what it was when I got the checker yesterday) to no more Decision Status visible and Current Status: Your application is being reviewed. What does this mean?!



I shouldn't be allowed to have a status checker.......

Also under review as of today. I have a couple of questions for you all.

First, last year BC released a big wave of decisions in early December (http://www.top-law-schools.com/decision-dates-2009.html). If you read the online status checker, it says it takes BC 8-12 weeks for a decision. Do you think those of us who applied in late October, early November will receive a decision by December?

Also, how do you think BC's elimination of the EA program will affect admissions this year?

I would think this gives them the opportunity to take their time with each app, no matter when it comes in. MY question is WHY they got rid of it...

My app was recieved 11/5. Still no change in status. Does it usually take this long? At the very least go "complete" or something?

I submitted 10/30 and went "Under Review" on 11/5, so you should (hopefully) see movement in a week, maybe 10 days.

Anyone know how long it takes for them to send decisions from the date we go under review? I think on the website it says 8-12 weeks but do we really think they won't be sending decisions for a while? Sent the app in on 10/5 and went complete the 13th

Those of us under review will probably get a decision by 2011.
