I also have "letter of admission" dated for 12/9 under mailings! I am really surprised. I was sure I was going to get waitlisted.

This is definitely good news right? You wouldn't get a letter of admission indicating you were waitlisted...

Complete 11/1
Under Review 11/9, 12/2

yea, that's ridiculous imo. I don't blame them but Yield should not be a factor in rankings for this reason

Does anyone know how hard it is to get residency status for 2L and 3L?

I don't know necessarily, but I would venture to guess its like most other OOS law schools. You have to have lived in that state for at least 8-12 months consecutively

Unless you get a job as a graduate assistant, it's next to impossible.

Ughhh that sucks

I understand why states do that, but it sucks for me because I only applied to law schools I wouldn't mind living in that area (with the exception of Texas and Notre Dame).

If I end up attending Minnesota I'll probably end up living their long term lol

I also have the 12/9 letter of admittance on my status checker. Hopefully they will call us Monday to verify. Otherwise the wait for snail mail may kill me.

Why do you say the "end time" ?

I think you'll be fine.
