Same (except mines the other way around: GPA is lower, LSAT is normal). I've pretty much given up hope hearing today--so hopefully Monday? This weekend is going to seem long for once.

My fake congratulations message is finally gone. The weird thing is that my status still says complete and the date didn't change. The bottom of the page changed as well: "Please note that your application file will go through various stages during the review process. As such, the current status date may change. "

At least there is some movement. Crossing my fingers to find out something next week. I applied on 10/28 and went complete on 12/2. Long wait!

The school was amazing!!! All new facilities and compared to DePauls mess of a law school (it was under construction and the weren't nearly as nice to the people as Loyola!) I would go to LUC 100%. I know if I have any chance at Biglaw I'm gonna have to transfer to Chicago. I have average stats and was dinged by Depaul the other day but it wasn't a favorite of mine. Anyway, If you have any particular questions feel free to ask! I'll answer as best I can! But it was a great building with all new amenities!

I agree about Loyola's facilities, really, really fantastic. However, my visit to DePaul was excellent, I found the environment really great. Both good schools, but a definite facilities edge to Loyola.

Great to hear about the facilities, I look forward to visiting!

Has anyone who was accepted earlier in the week received their admissions package? Haven't got anything yet here in Colorado.

When did you apply?

I sent my app in at the beg of January and hope to hear something soon!

Anyone else send their app in around then and hear back?

My status checker date has changed but nothing else has come from it! I will assume that the date changing means my app went to another committee?? Ill take that over a rejection haha

Not sure what day exactly, first week of January, probably like the 3rd. I'm sure you'll here back soon. My stats weren't great, so you're probably in good shape.

I went complete on 1/13 and got my e-mail acceptance on 1/23. It was the quickest turnaround ever.

Got my DePaul acceptance on 1/26. Still waiting on scholarship info.

I'm so glad this board exists aka that I see other people in the same boat. Couple more hours (hopefully)!

What a tease by taking down the fake congrats and not updating the status date.

I've got my fingers crossed for all of us today! I honestly don't think I can wait until Feb. 15

The note at the top has now disappeared for me. I'm hoping that means emails will be sent today.
