What could be likely scenarios for people complete before Dec 1 and still without decisions?

I am pretty sure they have modified rolling admissions..so maybe they are holding your app and comparing it to those that were accepted by the deadline?

Hope it's just me being pessimistic...but looking back at the forum, on a Monday a couple weeks back, a very similar scenario occurred and they turned out to be all dings :(

Yeah, I'm not feeling too good right now. Can everyone's who's in this batch post up stats?

I'm a 3.5/170 so not a lock by any means but I think I have (had?) a fairly good shot at admission.

Perhaps you were on the borderline of being held/denied and they are waiting to see how you compare to the students that submitted by Feb. Usually this is how modified rolling works...they admit and deny all the auto admits/auto dings and then continue reviewing borderline applicants.

Combine your GPA with my LSAT and we'd be golden, haha. Maybe they'll let us both in to balance out their medians.

They may need some more time to make everyone ready to run away from the office.

Ok, I am sure I got rejected...but, why not just reject me? Instead, I have to press refresh every 2 seconds. This is ridiculous.
