Decisions are probably coming out no sooner than tuesday, but more likely on wednesday 1/11.



I think this cycle we are going to wait longer. Just my hunch. I think about this too much. I got dinged from Harvard friday. It wasn't a surprise but it destroyed my confidence. LSP had me a deny at Harvard and a strong consider at Penn. I give myself a 50/50 chance. In my pessimism I've started mentally formulating an LOCI.

Is anyone in similar position? Is this almost certainly a wait-list? Thanks!


Same, but I'm above LSAT 75th and just below their GPA 75th. While I think they do YP, I imagine I would still go UR first. I think they're just slow at getting through the applications.


I'm about here too (though with weaker numbers). I think they're just slow is all

Who are they waiting for to apply? Slow or are they "hopeful? "

Seems they just fell behind early on, judging by how slow the ED decisions came out. Past few years all the ED decisions came out in 3 days (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday), this year they started on a Friday to notify ~75% of the ED people, then the rest had to wait an extra week. That delay seems to have put them behind on RD decisions too, no idea what's causing it in the first place though.

Can anyone explain to me why there are two UR dates? I am RD applicant and shortly after I submit my application around mid-Nov. I received an "complete" email on Nov.22nd, saying they need to review ED applicants first and counsel patience. And I never heard anything from them ever since....
