Why does this process have to be so excruciating?


maybe you can call them up and ask for it over the phone since it was already mailed.


I was thinking about it. Should I really do this?


Go for it. I've been watching this thread (that sounds creepy) and the suspense is killing me.

I submitted on October 2nd, IR on 12/1. Decision letter sent 2/10, and it should be coming sometime within the next week or two! :)

This is no exaggeration. I am probably going to withdraw because I've now reached retirement age waiting to hear back from them, so I don't really need that whole career thing anymore. :D

Haha, that original post from 'please...' made me chuckle. Especially since I posted right above it that I still have forever with a 24 Jan IR.

Ditto. I suppose there is a possibility that they have mailed letters and just haven't updated the status checker. At this point though, I don't know. I'm going insane. All these people IR 1/21 and other dates getting decisions...not sure why they are taking so long. Seriously...in review for over two months...really? What the heck is going on over there?


+2 :?

Yeah, mostly because if it were bad news, I think it would become an extremely awkward moment.

"The committee has decided that we are unable to offer you admission at this time."

"So... am I like on the waiting list or something?"

"No."

"Oh.... okay. Thanks for your time!" :?

lol I have a feeling this is why in the past they've been sometimes willing to tell people who call in that they got in, but say it has to come in the mail for the others. It's great to be able to say "Welcome to UW!"... Probably not so fun to say "Um yeah... uh... Well... Check the mail."

+1 for still IR 1/21, no mailings. UW admissions sends all decisions for undergrads during the same week in March, but I guess law school admissions likes to have some fun with their applicants.

I'm not sure if this is consistent across status checkers, but at several of the schools I've applied to, when the Current Status went "Decision Rendered" or what have you, you could tell whether or not you had an acceptance/rejection on your way based on the 'Requirements List' section of the checker...basically, if rather than your resume, personal statement, etc. it had first deposit and other such cues.

I've got a decision letter mailed as of today...but my requirements are unchanged.

Anyone know more? I'm fearing for the worst (i.e.- waitlist/rejection) based on this.

Thanks TLS! :wink:

I was accepted a while back and mine are no different than they were while I was waiting.

You all are just going to have to wait, sorry.

And somehow, despite it all, I'm about as sedate as you can be about this whole process. Jazz works wonders.

Folks--don't want to add to our collective anxiety but I noticed a new update on my status page. It now says Decision 2/15/2011. I was in the IR 1/21 and Mailings 2/10 group (still haven't received anything)--anyone else in that group have the decision notification up now?

I'm not optimistic. February 15 was the first batch of rejects last year.

My status checker says Decision 2/15/2011 and my envelope was postmarked 2/11 and I was accepted. Hope this eases your anxiety a little.

If only I was joking :cry:

I'm heading over to Seattle this weekend to get some bubble tea and Pike Street in, but I'm gonna check out the law school too. Maybe I'll take some pics and post for you guys. Probably not. But, maybe.

Sorry if this was asked already but did do acceptances come in big or small envelopes? :)

Edit: in other words will I know what it is when I open my mailbox?
