Based on my timeline and what I saw on LSN, then you're looking at probably 12/22, but with the holiday break it may be first week or so of January.

I'm beginning to get a little worried given I went complete on 9/21/2010 with 3.57/159/OOS and haven't heard a peep back. Does anyone know if this is normal for Iowa?

Thanks everyone. I have never been to Iowa before, so will definitely visit the school.

Good luck to those who are still waiting and are on the preliminary wait list (referring to you Barbie).

For prelim. waitlists, should we send a letter of interest? I have new stuff to add to my resume, so I was thinking about writing a nice email to the dean about how I've continued to pursue law and gain experience in a top firm, etc, and that I am still very interested blah blah

Since no one answered my question :(, how about this one: Anyone else who got preliminary waitlisted get something in the mail? I want to know if we have been informed to send anything or not to, and how to send it?

I can't see the harm in this at all. It would show your enthusiasm and maybe give the adcomms that "push" needed to go accept instead of non-preliminary (lol) waitlist.

I checked my status and it said in review as of 12/02/10. I was complete on 11/24/10, but this school is a huge reach. It has still been relatively early, so maybe there is hope.

It's probably strategically wise to send an update or LOCI now. You're currently in a position to influence whether that preliminary waitlist becomes an acceptance, actual waitlist, etc., but you won't have the same momentum if you try to convert a regular waitlist into an acceptance.

A lot of people told me not to, but I sent one in anyways via email. JO would you mind taking a peek at it?

Sure, I'd be happy to, although my response might be delayed since I'm studying for finals. If it makes you feel better, I can talk to my friend in admissions and get some insight about LOCIs for preliminary waitlists.

Went complete yesterday, 12/6, and am in review today, 12/7. Hopefully that's a good sign...

Iowa has a really quick In Review turn-around, from my experience. Best of luck to you!

Let us know your turn around time, when you find out, so we can know how long to expect to be IR

On my status checker it says:

Admissions Decision: In Progress

Is this the same as "In Review?"

Thanks!
