You should call the Admissions Office and complain (politely) about all of the above issues. They have been bad about this in the past and deserve to be called out on it. If they still don't respond, complain to the Dean of the Law School. Hell, it may even help your chances.
I seem to be one of the few people who had a seamless experience with the Admissions people, but I applied somewhat late (I think around New Year's) and went complete very quickly.
And yeah, they're soliciting really hard. Again, complain. Unlike past years, someone is listening to complaints.
If I can answer any questions, let me know (I'm a 2L).
