Still waiting on my 2/15 letter. Hoping in might get here today. They were mailed out though right? maybe?


I'm still waiting on mine, as well. I woke up with a good feeling that today was going to be the day that I'd open my mailbox to a big, beautiful white envelope. In reality, I got nothin'. Oh well, at least the dream is still alive.

So I just checked out the graph on LSN (only my first time today... impressive, right??). The more I see the decisions coming in, the more I just think Adjudicator got hosed -- especially when people with lower lsat and gpa at least got a WL nod. I think I'll observe a moment of silence in your honor.

New thought. Anyone who gets into UW and attends from this thread must earmark all alumni donations to UW to go towards a bronze statue of Adjudicator to hold court in the library.

hope that's the case for you guys... keeping my fingers crossed for y'all!


Ughhh I'm a 2/16'er I hope that's not the case for me :|

Does UW seem to send out the same decisions in batches/on the same day? I know that no one really understands it but.... just wondering.

Seriously. WTF did they hate so much about Adjudicator to directly reject? Its either YP or there's something in the softs/recs/statements to which they took objection. Maybe there's one adcomm that hates splitters and another that's fine with them and the dean doesn't care either way?

I hope I'm wrong too... I'd rather they do it mixed. But this is a good chance for us to take some data and see if there is a batch pattern. Hopefully, there isn't.

Looking on LSN people with the same decision date don't seem to be grouped into a batch... but I think some people use decision date on LSN as the day it was DR and others use it as the day that they received it. <sighhhhh>

Yeah, I've noticed that too. People are really inconsistent on the way they date things. It's hard to get any more than a very general sense of time with LSN.

Ugh, man, I'm all stressed out. The more research that I've done on UW over the past few weeks the more I've fallen for it! My chances look like 50/50 at best based on LSN/LSP/all that jazz. :|

LSN won't let me add my Decision date! I'm new to LSN, but when I click the Decision box, and try to put in 2/9, it changes one of my other dates to 2/9 instead.

I'm so proud of the binder and table I drew up to keep track of all my applications and corresponding dates, and now I'm not going to need it anymore.

Sometimes you just have to give it time. I've frequently had to enter in one date, save, leave for a few minutes, come back, and then update the rest. LSN is a bit buggy like that.

Definitely buggy. I also found my confirmation email like two months later in my Spam folder.

:mrgreen: I totally started doing that, and then I found LSN and was like, thank goodness.

I've had that problem all over the place. I've learned to stop using the pop-up calendar. If you just type the actual date in using their format, it should work correctly.

So guess what! Nothing has happened still! No news is good news I suppose, but the wait is killing me.

On the bright side, a customer dropped off a box of bacon flavored things today, including bacon flavored envelopes, bacon salt, baconaisse, bacon lip balm, bacon popcorn and bacon sunflower seeds. So at least theres that. Mmmmmm bacon.

Bacon lip balm is amazing! It's like you just ate bacon, but without any of the actual satisfaction that comes from eating bacon! It basically sells itself.

I'm about to go make some eggs and sausage, and I'm gonna test the bacon salt out.

Bacon popcorn sounds awesome.

I've had chocolate with bacon in it, which is pretty freaking good also. Almost like chocolate covered pretzel, except... bacon.

Anyone have any idea on WL movement? I'm going to search last year's thread but I was wondering if anyone already had <I'm looking at your Kinderby...:)>
