I submitted my application last week and had EVERYTHING that was required.... one week later and my application is still "incomplete" because they are waiting on a hardcopy?

Got an envelope from BU today... Turned out to be a mailer with a fee waiver. I almost had a heart attack.

I've seen a few people the hard part is predicting how it will go since it's their first year.

Anyone have any idea when decisions will start being made? During las year's cycle on LSN, some people already had acceptances even without exceptionally high numbers

Yea, I've decided that small envelopes will = my heart pounding because I'm probably rejected... large envelopes ./ packages = PARTY TIME

I know this isn't always accurate lol

Yeah, I got a small envelope from Suffolk last week and I was like "but how?" but it ended up being my acceptance. (Suffolk was my safety based on their strong regional presence in Boston)

They just sent me an email explaining that they left off a question in the app and needed me to respond immediately with the answer. Until then, the file would be incomplete (I was previously complete).

Ugh, did not get that email. I don't think that is a good sign. What is the question, if you don't mind me asking.

I submitted in the first couple days of November, and this is my status as well.

It's just a misconduct question. Have you ever been subject to disciplinary action or proceedings for personal misconduct at any college or university you have attended?

Same.

They said there would be no hold-up in the review process as long as they received a response by November 15.

It was a C&F question. In the original application I was actually surprised they hadn't included it. This explains it was just a mistake.

It's just a misconduct question. Have you ever been subject to disciplinary action or proceedings for personal misconduct at any college or university you have attended?

Oh weird. I just double checked my completed app on LSAC and it has "3. Have you ever been subject to disciplinary action or proceedings for academic misconduct, or subject to any action
for academic insufficiency, at any college or university you have attended?"

Strange... there must have been two versions of the application on LSAC.

ETA: Status checker still shows complete.

They are asking different things. The one you reference on the LSAC app pertains solely to academic misconduct, while the email explicitly and only pertains to disciplinary infractions.
