I'm complete today, too! Does anyone know when they usually start making decisions?

Hey all,

I received the email this morning with a link to my status checker. Even though everything is checked off under the requirement list my current status is still incomplete. It says "Your application is missing components and cannot be moved to review. Please check the required documents list for more information." Is this common?

I'm not sure, but I've been under review since 10/18 so I'm thinking sometime in November/early December will be the first wave?

I wonder if I missed the first wave by submitting last week and just going complete today.

Some people last year weren't complete until a week before acceptance, with many sending in their apps in November. You should be fine.

You must definitely be the first batch... I went complete 10/24 and my status has been: "Application complete and ready for review"

...Positive I missed the first wave.

Mine says that as well. I hope they bring us in before they make any decisions.

Probably the URM go that for you... I'm sure they evaluate the diversity of incoming applications and adjust accordingly.

I was going to apply, I have a good friend that lives in Winston Salem and loves it. But I am definitely not that well informed when it comes to my driving record so I guess I'm not applying.

Mine had been complete for almost that long and just changed to in review. But from what I have read it will probably stay that way a while...

This was the first app I sent in. Also sort of my sloppiest. Hopefully not a waste of $16.

How about why are traffic tickets necessary on the application? I seriously can't remember how many speeding tickets I've had since I've been driving. Most of them prior to me being 16.

Because they'll ask on your bar application. Believe it or not, the bar actually gets copies of your law school application and compares to make sure they match. Something about making sure all lawyers are honest (LOLOLOL).

No, I know. I haven't lied on my law school apps but none of the other apps ask about traffic tickets so I'm just wondering why Wake does require the traffic tickets to be disclosed.

Really? I had to disclose them to several schools. One of them actually made me go to the courthouse and get something certifying the disposition of the ticket. Total pain in the ass.

But if traffic tickets are the worst you've got, you should be fine. At least you didn't get expelled from undergrad.
