Header on the Status Checker:
Our Admissions Committee has reviewed your Early Action application and has decided to defer your application to our regular J.D. application pool for further consideration. I know this is likely a disappointment to you, but please understand that this action does not mean that you have been denied admission; you will be given full consideration as part of our regular application pool.
If you would like to continue to be considered for regular J.D. admission, please e-mail our office at email@example.com
as soon as possible. Your application will be considered again after our February 1st deadline for regular admission applications. If we do not hear from you by February 1st, we will assume you have made other plans and will withdraw your application.
Please feel free to supplement your application with additional information before February 1st. For example, you should definitely forward any additional grades or honors you have received since you originally submitted your application. Updated transcripts and letters of recommendation should be processed through LSAC.
Congratulations on your fine record and background. We will be in touch again as soon as we have made a further decision on your application. We very much appreciate your interest in us and your willingness to participate in our early admission process.
