Not always.. I've been complete since 10/20 and I haven't heard.

Youre right.

However, for the most part, they are speedy. Looking through LSN, the experience of others (including myself) on TLS and anecdotal evidence, AU is quick.

For those still waiting, did you submit any additional statements to supplement your application? This seems to help speed up the process.

Ellie, you probably will get YP waitlisted. With those numbers you have a really good shot at GW and a decent shot at GULC though. You'll be ok.

I did a diversity statement as well, but I didn't hear anything back yet.

Yeah. I got the GULC interview request on Friday, but I got outright dinged at UT so I'm taking any acceptances I can get right now. Thanks.

I didn't, I'm not diverse or anything in the least bit.

For those of you who have already been accepted, how much longer after your status checker changed did you receive your acceptance email?

My status changed from application complete to admitted. It took about 2 1/2 weeks. I received the email later in the day.

I got the email before I noticed the status checker changed...but I imagine it did so quickly. I checked the status checker right after the email and it said admitted.

Hopefully! I'm hoping it explains why our status dates are stuck. American has a great rep for fast turn around times

I've also been complete since 11/15. Depending on your numbers, you may be YP'd.

My numbers aren't so high that I thought I would be YP'ed, but I've been complete since 10/25 so I'm starting to think maybe that is the case. I am above the 75% LSAT and around the median for GPA.

I'm at the median GPA and slightly below the 25% LSAT. Also, anxious and frustrated.

Maybe a bunch of us have been on complete forever because they're just trying to decide which juicy scholarship to offer us. That's what I keep telling myself anyway...

I am a point below the 25th on LSAT and above on GPA. I am applying part time.

I really really want to have American as an option.

I applied ED b/c American is my #1 choice. I should know before Christmas but I am wondering if they send all ED apps out at once on the 23rd or maybe I could know before then. Does anyone know?

People will hear back at different times. The key word is "by" December 23rd. So, you could hear anytime before that.


Good luck!
