+1, considering calling after lunch to see if they can give me any sort of update (now that I'm back under review). It's driving me crazy.

I called yesterday and wasn't able to glean any helpful information ... you should try though!

I'm essentially curious as to if there are open seats at this point.

If I hadn't completely outted myself here (and if she hadn't been so nice) I'd strongly consider posting a direct line for the pleasure of knowing that some law admissions director is going crazy.

Called earlier and this is what I got:

-There will be no decisions released today, the committee is traveling/and or already gone for the weekend
- Going under review is a good sign that you'll receive a decision soon. She said that I could probably expect a decision within two weeks and as early as next week.
- The class is NOT full! The woman I spoke to said they fully expect to make offers to students on the reserve list

So unfortunately it seems like we're still in for a bit of a wait, but the good news is that we at least still have a chance at filling in those empty seats!

This is good to know, and I sort of assumed it was so anyway since they just offered a spot to splitmuch that he declined. Now, if only we could get them to pull a UCLA and send out the list of matriculating students, we could get an idea of how many of us are going to get off reserve.

It accidentally went out attached to an email to admitted students, apparently. Not WL.

I just went under review today. As far as the rumors go, I was placed on reserve around the same time last month, and my last name is between M and...T. I suppose it could be alphabetical or date of decision if they're wicked efficient, but I don't think so.

Hello all, I was placed on the reserve list in mid May (applied early January, went complete in mid March ) and I am *patiently* waiting to be placed under review. Last name in the last part of the alphabet, stats: 167, 3.95. Will let you know when something changes...

I believe we confirmed it's not alphabetically a while ago.

Hopefully there's some (positive) movement tomorrow...

Is there anything in particular that makes you think that will be the case kausjon?

Nothing in particular aside from wishful thinking. :)

I've been leaving my phone on all day when I'd usually be asleep because splitmuch's acceptance has given me the ammo I need to irrationally convince myself that I'm going to be admitted any day now, just so long as I don't miss the call.
