You just got my hopes up so much haha. 11/16 and now still at 11/22. That was disappointing.

does GULC send e-mails to every person who wrote LORs for applicants?

While I can only really speak for myself, yes, though there have been others who have said the same.

Has anyone experienced two compete dates in a row?

My dates are now 11/01->11/16 (interview request)->11/23 (day after interview) -> 11/30 -> 12/1

So many complete dates. And 2 in a row? Not sure how to interpret it. Maybe yesterday they made the decision then today they dropped it in the mail?

I don't remember all my complete dates, but I recently had an interview and had complete dates on 11/30 and 12/1. I'm not reading a whole lot into the status dates thing. It might actually mean something at GULC, but it's not productive for me to be obsessing about what every update means. There are plenty of other things to obsess about :)

Aren't you a URM with a high-160's lsat/decent GPA? I don't think you are getting rejected, especially this early.

Mine referenced my PS (I talked about a balanced course of study and related to Curriculum B). He agreed with me that it would be a good fit.

Another 11/21-er here with good news in the mail in the Midwest :)

Also, my note was personalized a little to my interests in human rights, but not a ton.

GL to everyone who's still waiting!!

eh, mexican urm, 167/3.4. those numbers got my EA app at UT held, and i think a non-urm with the same numbers would've been dinged for sure, so i can tell it's helping somewhat. but it seems like across the board my status checkers are getting a lot less attention that others with higher numbers.

i guess they might be keeping my app on the backburner to see if they can fit my #'s in with their admits though. hopefully that's the case.

Still at 11/22 here. Honestly at this point I feel like I've already burnt myself out checking application status checkers and whatnot. I might just try to download that LSAT status checker thing and leave it over the next few weeks. I've kind of gotten tired of wasting an hour a day going in between TLS, email and status checkers lol.


I know I say this and within two hours I'll be checking again -_-. Really gonna try not to though. Oh, had 11/10 Submission, 11/11 Status checker receipt, I think an 11/16 update, potentially 11/21 (gonna have to check my posts) and now I'm at 11/22.

I am no expert on URM matters, but I would imagine that Mexican applicants are less-"under represented" at UT than at many other schools which are located outside of the border states. So you can't necessarily use this as an indicator of the rest of your cycle. This aside, I would advise you anyway to not get worked up over one decision. There's a long road ahead still... stay positive :) (these last two sentences are my inner self-talk. can you tell?)

I think that's what hyakku is talking about. Or you could just take a zen-like attitude and wait til you hear from the school. The status checkers are nice and all but if you need to know anything, the school will get in touch with you. I definitely will still use the status checkers though, personally 8)

edit I cannot believe I just advocated a zen like attitude and I have posted like 8 times just this morning on just this forum alone. wow

Lmao don't worry, none of us can even front; we all put it like we're gonna get into our Zen mode but within an hour the itch grows into an insatiable compulsion to status check.

Edit: Note that I said I was done with this thread less than fifteen minutes ago. Hell yea willpower.

You haven't received an invitation yet? I bet they will offer you one soon. With the volume of applications, it's probably just taking a while to wade through them all.

I was accepted without an interview
