If I may ask. What did you want to submit? updated resume? I have another LOR that I like to submit (I already submitted 4), but since they do not take more than 4 from LSAC, I'm afraid to ask.

Yikes! Sorry to hear about the DLS. >.> I'm 11/29 so maybe today is my day as well. Then again, I just sent an extra LOR so maybe that will delay my inevitable ding for a few more days.

Okay, not that I am going to get in (very certain I'm an auto-ding, but kind of hoping that applicants with my background are few enough in number that I might be a regular ding), but...

Got my status checker from stanford yesterday, noticed they didn't have the dean's cert. Stopped by the registrar's office and it was still there, dated 2 weeks ago, unsent. They sent it today after I stopped by. My question is this: if we pretend that we live in a world where I have a snowball's chance in hell at getting in in the first place, how much does this adversely affect my chances?

I don't think they should blame your school for not sending out the cert. You dated the form right? That should at least show you did it early enough. But I don't know how these things work... I think you are ok, as long as they get it before getting to your file.

pretty much the same thing happened to me. Sent in my application (January 7/8), gave dean my cert in late december. Show up in office on Feb 1; she still hadnt filled it out. She faxed it in on Feb 4 and I was accepted yesterday

Long story short: dont worry about it fool

any guesses to what percentage or number of applicants have not been accepted but have also not been rejected although the evil-DLS-rejection-axe has passed their UR date by?

No clue, but I would say sitting without a DLS is not a bad place to be, and it sure beats the alternative.

Knock, r6, and Cardinals (and of course myself). I had a dream of the Deal Signal gloriously lighting up the sky next Wed-Fri for all of us.

It's not zero-sum, so doesn't hurt as much.

Are dreams compatible with ESP?

to be honest, I had to Wiki the fact that it was even called ESP.

So I actually did ask, and four is the absolute maximum. Sorry bro.

Ha, I never would have expected this thread to surpass the Harvard thread in posts, given how many applications Harvard gets. But here we are!

3-5 days. If you don't hear back by next Friday then call.

Although, you are probably better off doing a LSAC update, then all schools get it.

Took 2 business days for me to get an email confirmation (not including the day I sent it in).
