I'm sure not everyone that got in wrote it, but, as always, it couldn't hurt. I did write it though.


I got in ED some weeks ago and did write it. I would do it, if you really want to attend. It's only 200 words and it couldn't hurt.

Dinged at Illinois. I'm actually surprised I didn't even get waitlisted.

Also, somewhat upsetting as I have a 4.0, 166...Got into Iowa the other day which is nice, but still hoping this isn't indicative of a bad cycle. Also hoping I can get some scholarship at a decent school (something similar to Iowa).

Regardless, rejection never feels good. Good luck to everyone else.

Mine says File Complete - Under Review 12/10

I was curious. How long does it take from when your status goes from "Complete--Ready for Review" to actually being under review?

Dean Pless has a good timeline in his thread. There will be a decision on those who were "Complete" by 11/19 next Friday. And then the next group will be Jan 7th I do believe.

Thanks! I finally went complete today after being LSAC complete for the past few weeks! I guess, I have a fair bit of time left to wait. At least Christmas will be a nice distraction!
