My under review status date changed from 12/2 to 1/20. Is this normal?

Has anyone been rejected from Bama yet?

I have a suspicion that they run the applications through the LSAT/GPA/URM machine, and all the auto-admits come out. Then, (when they get around to it) they look at the rest of the applications.

Anyone know anything about how their cycle goes?

Also, my application review date changed from 12/6 to 1/20.

Quick question: My status checker says my application is UR, but then I got an email today saying that I needed to create a Bama email address through their website. Does everyone get this message? Not really sure why they would give students that might not get accepted @bama.edu email addresses...

Im not complaining, just stating a fact. I called the admissions office yesterday b/c I have YET to receive my name and password to check my application status. I was told within the hour that I'd be receiving an email with the necessary components. It's been 24 hours and still no email. So I've emailed them this time asking for the information.

Just a tough time in the office is what the lady in admissions told me, lots of computer problems all around.

Good Luck everybody!

Initially they sent me only the MyBama login information. I thought that was their sole way to status-check.

After reading here I realized they also have the LSAC checker, and I had to solicit my username an password from them.

Maybe they were waiting to see how serious I was.

I have almost identical numbers as you, submitted my app at the same time, and am UR since 1/20. Just curious if you have ties to Alabama? - trying to reason hearing something soon.

I'm in the same boat as of 1/30.

It looks like we've made the move from the initial committee to the Final Committee. I don't know how long they take though.

Anyone?

Honestly, we've talked about this on this board several times already. Read back a few pages. Some people see decisions a month (or less) after they submit. Other people sit in "final committee" purgatory for months.

Story. Of. My. Life. I've been in said purgatory since 12/13. I'm starting to think that the Final Committee makes its decisions by using copies of our applications to conduct a complex, multi-month, round-robin paper airplane competition or something.
