My status changed to "decision made; wait for e-mail" on day 9, got the e-mail morning of day 10. As far as I can tell from the rest of this thread, most people have experienced a similar timeline of 9-10 days.

I still have some days left but I feel like I have waiting for ages. Applying to law school really showed me how impatient I am.

When we talk about waiting are we talking about calendar days or business days? Also, is it from the day you are complete or the day you've sent the app?

Its calendar days. And its from the day your application became complete. E.g. if you were complete today (11/7) you should hear back by 11/17.

Check your status checker - it should say something about a decision being made and that they'll send an e-mail shortly. You're PT right?

Yeah I am PT. I checked a few times already today and it still says under review. Did anybody not get a decision within 10 days after going complete who was PT?

I applied PT and went complete on 10/19/11. On 10/27/11, they confirmed that they are actually still waiting for something from my undergrad. So far I have been likely practically stalking my undergrad Dean's office via e-mail/phone and have still been unable to find out if it has even been sent out yet...Grrr! Hopefully it will get there soon though so I can get some (hopefully) good news like the rest of you!

Status checker just changed to "under review" 11/7... Any idea on how long it takes to render a decision? I am a regular decision candidate (NON PT)??

Just submitted my PT today. Anyone know how long it takes the LSAC to get the report together after it processes your transcripts and recs and how long after that it seems to take to go complete?

Thanks! :)

Sorry if this question has already been answered, but has anyone who applied RD been accepted yet? If so, approx. how long does it take for "File under review" status to change to "Decision made" for RD applicants?

Yeah, I've been UR since 10/31. Not very long but does make me anxious.
