Status Checker Accept, Reject, Waitlist

Postby Skyhook » Fri Dec 17, 2010 4:12 pm

I visit my status checkers every day.
I'm wondering if any of them will notify me of the decision or at least let me know to expect one?

This varies based on the school. Some schools will put specific information on their websites or in the initial e-mails they send you with the status checker e-mails, but others aren't as transparent.

You can hunt around these forums for individual schools' policies.

It depends, some people have reported not getting a call and gotten their decision by Status Checker (i.e. Berkeley, although this is definitely not the norm). Some (Duke, Michigan) will let you know a decision is coming, while others will explicitly say they do not give decisions via status check even after a decision is sent out (WUSTL, etc.). HTH.

Thanks. Peculiarities of law schools...
Perhaps it's best if I just sit back and not look at them. Seem like a watched status checker never updates!

True that.

Edit: FWIW, I try to avoid mine and get on TLS instead :D

I'm quite tempted to revisit some old logic games to keep me distracted!

EDIT - waitlisted via email - finally some action, albeit not the best news.
