People will probably start hearing stuff by mid month. The holidays backed up the admissions office a bit so decisions will probably take a little longer.

Good luck to those waiting!

From what I've heard, it seems they are a bit stingy with $. But I don't know for sure. Also, does anyone remember when scholarship info is supposed to come out?

I would also like to know this. I heard some vague comments about February I think.

I'm saying YES!

My only reasoning for this is that I haven't heard much from applicants yet this year so I'm assuming that there haven't been many decisions yet. They have to start making decisions soon! They HAVE to!

...right?

If it's any consolation, there was a big batch the 2nd weekend of December. I found out 12/10/10 (via email) around 3 PM...good luck!

I went from Complete 1/10->Complete 1/14. Does this mean anything or just a rando update?

This is starting to get frustrating. I went complete at the end of November. I realize that I had to go through 2 admissions committees (1 for the MA), but since my complete status date changed on 12/10 nothing has happened.

congrats on the admittance, as for scholarship info it seems like we have to wait for awhile...i was admitted in december and have received zero word on money (as has everyone else it seems).

YankeesFan, I have the same status update as you. I'm pretty sure we are WL'ed. :\ I kind of did some searching in last years thread and that's the conclusion I came up with. Plus, I don't know what your numbers are, but people with my numbers are normally WL according to LSN. 161/3.32. Don't hold me to it though!

Same here, mine updated twice this week alone, but I don't expect a decision for a while.

Me too. I feel like my stats are pretty good for AU too... At least my LSAT is. Depressing to see all these people who went complete in January and December getting in...

Denied via status checker today, not sure why. 160/3.3.

Good luck to those who are still waiting!

I had a date change today too. I think it's a good sign that maybe a second person is looking at your app so they updated the date. I don't think they would do it randomly.

According to the status checker, an Application Received mail was sent 11/15. I'm pretty sure it went complete once, and then another time on 12/10 where it sat for a while. I didn't notice an update between 12/10 and today, which is the date of the most recent change.

Also good to note is that they won't send denial letters home. They said they will only be sent electronically. I got one in my e-mail too.

That's a good tactic. Who wants to open a letter only to be told they didn't get in, plus they'll save time and money on a bad cause, delivering bad news.
