Just went IR 1/24 -> IR 2/9. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this bad? I thought I read that if we get moved to the second step, that means someone didn't like our application

How long should it take for the letter to reach me, given that I live just 4 miles from UW?


The day after they send it! But who knows how long they'll wait for that... Best of luck!

I thought I was going to be able to spend a whole day without status checking.

I changed to Decision today. :shock: I feel that my status are borderline, at best, but omg, UDub!!!!!!!! *cry*

So we, uh, just have to wait until the mail comes now?

There's no way to predict that kind of thing. At best it's pure conjecture. My application went through two review phases as well and I was accepted on the first round. Making guesses like that only hurts you in the long run IMO.

Would anybody like to volunteer to overanalyze my situation and conjecture a likely outcome? It will help pass the time, if nothing else.

Let's review my case: 3.0/175 super splitter, in review since December, decision on February 9th. I'm a Seattle resident and my cousin graduated from UW Law.


Go!

I am so jealous of you all. Sounds like a big wave went out today. Still in review...probably on the wait list at this point.

I would be surprised if they were sending out any rejections that weren't "auto-reject" (like way below both medians). I would agree that they are likely accepts.

I'm really surprised to have a decision already (which is why I kind of think mine is a rejection :? ). Good luck!

URM? Don't sell yourself short, seems like you have a good shot based on your softs and your LSAT!

+1 (minus the rum part. I better get on that to help my sanity! Haha.) Sooooooo freaking beautiful, I am going to flip the heck out if I get in.

Wait, people who are accepted, what did you get in the mail? Is it packet-y? Will I know right away when I pull it out of my unconscious mailman's hands the mailbox? :D

Me too, only beer instead of rum. Missing that beautiful mountain like a motherfucker though.
