I got an e-mail today telling me that the BU adcomm would like to see my fall grades before making a final decision.

Has anyone else received this e-mail? What does this typically mean? Do I simply need to send my updated transcript to LSAC to move things along?

Edit: Ah, I just noticed a few older posts that mentioned the same e-mail (albeit in early Dec). Still, I wonder what this means..

Maybe this means that they want you, but not badly? :)

Complete on 12/23.

How long do they usually take to release decisions? I'm hoping for mid-late February.

I'm sorry! Dinging via email? Sounds like a lot of schools are doing new methods this year. Hmm.

What are your stats?

Have they called everyone who has been accepted / will they do that for the whole cycle?

Ah I'm sorry. :( Now that they're sending out rejections I'm going to be afraid of my email now.

Without a status checker to at least warn you of a decision being finalized, a ding email seems abrupt and especially unkind.

Sorry to hear that. Good luck with the rest of your cycle. I'm sure you'll be successful with those numbers.
