My best guess is that we should get some decisions on Monday. By the looks of last years thread, a bunch of acceptances went out on Monday, December 13. I'm hoping my logic is right and we get some movement next week!


I could have done without hearing [/reading] this. It's very difficult to get my work accomplished while continually checking LSN, e-mail and status updater.

My checker just changed dates to today but I'm still in review. First time it has updated since I went in review. Sign of movement maybe??

I wish we had more people commenting. I saw changes on my under review on. 12/01 I submitted on 10/30 and went complete 11/01. My guess would be it went up to another level of review like where they vote yay or nay on your app. ( purely speculative but the Minnesota status checker mentions change in review Like higher level )

I have almost identical dates to yours: Submitted 10/31, under review 11/4, and under review (again) 12/01

No date change since

"Close" is ambiguous... do you think like today close?

They needed me to update my app, and implied that outside of that update, they were ready to make a decision.

I don't know if it's today close, but definitely soon.

About two hours ago I decided to stop obsessively checking for updates. So much for that.

I spoke on the phone with admissions about a month ago and they told me the last date for them to make decisions was 12/15. Looks like it might be the only day they make decisions?

Good luck everyone.

I just talked today with someone on admissions. They said that if you are ED, you will get a decisions by December 15th. If you are RD, they said it is possible, but not guaranteed that you will get a decision. And the previous poster was right in saying that the 15th is the last day until the holiday break. So its either this week for us RD, or a few more weeks if we don't get a decision.

Anyone have data on applicants from previous years who did the binding ED? I haven't found anything on LSN.

If you're looking for a time-frame I think it's safe to assume that the folks who heard on 12-13 last year on LSN were probably the EDs (there's a handful on there). At this point though it's probably a good idea to just assume that you won't hear anything until the deadline on Thursday.

Yeah but some of those people did not attend which means it was not a binding decision. Is the binding early decision new this year?

No, I'm sure I remember the binding ED in 2009 when I first started looking at law schools. I think, after looking more carefully, the numbers seem to indicate that the strongest candidates heard about the same time as the ED's were supposed to (those with high LSAT/GPA). The possible one exception being the guy who attended with median scores hearing at the same time, and I would assume he was the ED.

I actually do think that it is rather new. According to --LinkRemoved-- there was no ED when this was made. So it has to be relatively new or completely new this year.

Edit: That site was last updated in 2009, and there was no ED according to it at the time.

All of this talk is gonna have me checking my emails often lol. I'm RD but saw my in review status change once after going in to in review. What I read on other posts is that once it changes twice people got decisions. Hopefully the same holds true.

Yeah I found this spreadsheet here that was linked from the TLS article on ED/EA and Wisconsin had none at that time.

It's probably new this year.
