In the realm of 95-100% sure that date changes on the status checker means that your application is moving through the review process (or at a decision). I believe that status checkers have stopped updating for everyone who's received a decision.

I don't think that this necessarily means much if your status checker hasn't changed dates (other than that a decision has not yet been made).

Hmmm...interesting. No one has received rejections yet, right?

I have mine on Skype tonight!

Can you give me any details as to what you talked about? I imagine "Why Georgetown", "Why Law", anything else? Any pointers?

From the lack of rejections on LSN, I'm guessing that they won't start rejecting until late December.. ED eventual rejections are probably getting deferred into the regular pool for now.

If what you're saying is true, I REALLY hope my 11/21 update was a mailed letter. An acceptance at a huge reach like Gtown would be HUGE for me

A status checker that has stopped moving doesn't necessarily mean a decision has or will be communicated soon. My 10/31 status has never moved. Granted, that may mean they are waiting to start unloading on the dings, but I don't know if I would place too much confidence on a stagnated status checker.

Is there anyone else in my boat as well?

status changed to application completed 11/22 today. to be honest, i'm actually very surprised at how fast they have moved on apps as i sent my app in last week and my #s are not great. here's to hoping and waiting with you all.

I'm in the same boat. Status updated once to 10/11 and silence since.

same here. I submitted the app last Fri and it is already "completed".
Any idea what the next step would be? How long will we have to wait?

I am in your boat in the sense that my status has never moved
Your numbers are better so we might not be in the exact same boat
Application completed since 10/11
Not too surprised - was thinking PT, but I know that train has probably left also

Applied 11/10 I believe, got my status checker / complete message 11/14, was just updated again to 11/22 sometime today. I feel like all my apps are starting to move at once -_-, don't know if I'm happy or a bit petrified at the idea, but I've already submitted now so I guess it's time to wait for the verdicts.

Based on your stats and mine being similar, I would definitely assume that those of us with no movement are rejected.

So, for those of you who have a status that's kept on trucking, I would certainly assume it to be a good thing, or at least that you haven't been dinged yet.

Maybe I am being self-deprecating, but for some reason I feel like 165 and 167 are as far apart as could be - more so this cycle than ever. And also, thank you for your service.

Eh, not really. Without a 3.9+ GPA or URM status, they're both auto-dings at every T14.

Not Cornell! Just a very likely waitlist, at least last cycle.

^Credited, luxxe. An EA app to Cornell, although a ship that's already sailed this cycle, could be the ticket for someone with a 167/sub-3.9, so a situation does exist in which a 'chasm' between those numbers yawns 'widely'.

Just finished my interview. It went great!!!

I saw one person said that they received an admissions packet 3 weeks after interviewing. Has anyone else been admitted (or received any decision) after interviewing? If so, what was the time frame like?

How did the interview go? Any curveballs other than Why LS/GULC?
