Did anyone whose status checker updated to Decision Rendered hear anything yet? I'm fairly certain I'm in (based on the requirements box) but I'd really like the official email/mail/whatever they send.

I am concerned that I haven't even gotten the "decision rendered" notice yet.

There's no reason to be concerned yet. This is, historically, really early for Case to be making decisions. In the 2010 thread one poster mentioned that he had received an acceptance earlier than Case's norm, but everyone else saw their decisions starting in late December. If you're interested in taking a gander:

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=99701

My status checker changed to "Committee Review" with a new date of 12/1. I keep thinking that they are flip-flopping between rejecting me as a dunce ("Committee Reveiw") and giving me a chance ("Committee Review"). I'm sure it's just a batch update, though.

I have been in review almost a month...11/9...so Its a little weird that I wasn't with the batch the they "sent" out or whatever they did. :lol: :lol: :lol:

No worries, I have been in review since 11/9 as well. I am becoming a little worried about being accepted as my LSAT is below the median (157) and my gpa though I have included a legitimate addendum citing poor pre-college preparation due to a terrible high school and misguidance into believing I should continue taking courses for pre-med even though I was just barely scraping by. I also did a Why Case email explaining my interest in pursuing Health Law. My personal statement also makes mention of my goal of Health Law and puts it into perspective.

Anyway, I am hoping I get in. Case does like students from my school so I hope that that helps. I also know some of the faculty and they have assured me I have nothing to worry about but I am taking that with a grain of salt.

I've technically been in review since 10/5. It just keeps changing dates. It's no big deal - they'll come around.

I seriously hope I get in though. After some seriously re-evaluation it is my first choice. *crosses fingers and toes*

Could you send another email saying: And I can beautify the Cleveland area b/c I really do look like Beyonce. That could help.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

You should apply to Pittsburgh too and their program...or maybe you have and I missed it.

Maybe I will. I am also looking at Northeastern as well but I can't find the time or the willpower to do anymore applications.

Also, I wrote in my Why Case essay about how enthusiastic I was to live in Cleveland and how great the area would be for my career in health law with two hospitals less than a mile away :P

I should work on my Beyonce dance moves and dye my hair too....I'd probably need some plastic surgery before hand as well. Do you think they'll take an LSAT addendum if I say that I was healing from multiple plastic surgeries?

Hey...anything is possible! :lol:

I think you'll be fine...and I would stay away from Northeastern and take a shot at Pitt.

Submitted my app earlier this week. Good luck everybody!

And I'm sure this has been answered, but what's the turnaround time been so far? Could I expect to hear back before January?
