For the people that have gotten decisions: Can you let us know if your status date changed before you got the call/email/whatever and what the decision was?

Congrats to all who are in!!

my status date didn't change before, even the day after I got the call it wasn't changed...
I submitted early...9/12... and got the email to call this Monday so maybe they're just slowly working their way through the RD's...

So maybe no status date change is good? I'm going to hold out hope (probably foolishly) that it is.

I irrationally think this as well, I don't remember anyone who has been accepted RD mention their status date updating before they got a call.

The LSN graph looks like they bared touched anyone OOS over both medians. So our time will come (although I hesitate to say soon).

I will be less impatient if I gets a purple envelope today.

thought I should share a piece of the email the ding came with (it looks like the odds this year for people out of state may be a bit more brutal than usual):
"We expect to receive over 7,500 nonresident applications and 650 resident applications for the 350 seats in the entering class. This is likely to be the most difficult year on record in which to gain admission to Virginia Law. This is especially true for nonresidents."

It ends....
"I hope you excuse the informality of this communication, but I thought you might appreciate speed over formality. In addition, we are communicating almost exclusively via email now in an attempt to reduce our reliance on paper."

Good luck to everyone else!

Sorry to hear that as well :(

If you don't mind me asking, has your status date always been 11/15 or did it update to 11/15 from an earlier date?

Sorry to hear that.

The numbers in the letter that you posted do not make me optimistic about my chances, either.

For the lucky few that do get in - does this mean they will be boosting their ranking even more?
