Applied. Probably not going to get in with my numbers. I am at the 25th with LSAT and in the medium with GPA.

But I like DC.

Admittedly I wasn't banking on getting in because my numbers are definitely not that great 157/3.1 but I have some pretty solid softs that apparently worked out for me as I am accepted to the full-time program. Funny that I got waitlisted at DePaul which is ranked 40 places lower.

Also, did anyone else go through review lightning fast? I submitted my app just went complete on the 5th!

Congrats. When did you submit and go complete if you don't mind me asking?

The date of my complete status changed from 11/5 to 11/15 today (but no acceptance e-mail). I assume I'll either get an e-mail in the next few days, or the admissions committee will wait until January to YP waitlist me.

First of all congratz to all the acceptances so far. American is one of my top choices, and i am hoping for some good news this month.

I submitted 10/13 and went complete 10/19. My current status is

Current Status: Application complete
Current Status Date: 11/10/2010

My numbers are less than you guys, so maybe my decision will be released in another wave.

I've been complete since 9/23 and I've got better numbers than some people who have been accepted. Also have strong softs. It's starting to piss me off that I haven't gotten a decision.

I wouldn't consider myself "lucky" to be an URM....but I'm sure you still have a good chance. I thought I had a 0% chance. I think applying early made a big difference. Hopefully you'll hear soon as it only took 10 days total from complete to decision for me.

Anyone apply to the JD/MA Program. I'm wondering if it will take longer for the two committees to review my application.

I want to start a WCL 2014 thread, but I'll wait until the admit picture is a little clearer.

My date was updated to today's date as well, though I got no news.. I thought it was a little weird, glad I'm not the only one.

My last name begins with a G. I really hope that "Too lazy to stay past 5" hypothesis is true! :lol: I'm thinking I got WL.
