I got one via e-mail request in just a couple days.

Where does it show you if you're in review or not? Is it on the LSAC website or did you get an email?

Ahhh so nerve wracking

You can check it on the status checker...I think the info was in the "complete" email they sent upon the receipt of your application.

Does anybody know when decisions will start rolling out? I know the Admission office is closed until 1/3, but how much longer afterwards?

I applied in September and I've been "Complete and In Review" since 12/13.

I believe you have to maintain a 2.5 gpa, which is below median (?)

Just saw on my status checker that it sent a SCALE email and I got the email..but still haven't heard back as far as a decision that has been made. I'm hoping that getting the SCALE email is a good thing, but I have a feeling they just sent it to whoever put down the SCALE program as any one of their choices. Anyone else get the same thing?

What is the e-mail about? I didn't get the e-mail even though SCALE was my 2nd choice behind full-time day.

For those of you that got the Diversity Day invite, what are your stats? Did you get it through snail mail? I haven't heard anything besides being in review forever :(

Well, I really want to stay in Cali so I applied to Berkeley, UCLA, Stanford, USC as my top choices, and Southwestern, Loyola, and Pepperdine as back ups, but I think Southwestern is a great school. I'm not a name snob, I kind of don't care, to be honest. I think a driven person will make it out of any school. Plus, a scholarship at a school not ranked super high may still make more sense than sticker price just for a name, u know?

*thanks, by the way, and good luck to u!!!

Looks like they're at least starting with decisions....from the top. But nonetheless starting. It is going to be a real slow month.

This. I've thought about going to Diversity Day, but would've felt more comfortable knowing that I got in first.
