Same. Definitely the friendliest complete status I've gotten.

No Loyola, thank you!

I wonder if they'll start reviewing them soon. I called them yesterday and they said they might not begin reviewing applications until mid-December. If they could start now that would be lovely.

I don't like how they began the header with "Congratulations!" Major blue ball.

I read this post, went in to my checker to see what you were talking about, and even though I was expecting it, it still tricked me.

Since we are going complete, it can't be too long before we go under review, right?

The wording on the checker kind of makes it sound like complete means in review. I don't know for sure though.

I would think not. They say if you have your materials in by Jan. 15 you'll get a decision by Feb. 15, so that allows for 4 weeks. Fingers crossed!

The status checker header claims Loyola doesn't release decisions via phone or email. Do you think they will update the status checker with a decision or will we only find out via snail mail?

I think that means that you cannot email or call admissions for a decision. On the other hand, they can call you with any info. I'm pretty sure that people got an email last year if accepted.

Just received this e-mail from Loyola-Chi..

"After January 15, which is our early notification deadline, the Committee on Admission will begin the review of completed applications. Our policy is to notify candidates by February 15 of the decision of the committee. Due to the high volume of applications, we are unable to provide information regarding admission decisions via phone or email requests. Please note your application status online will indicate complete until a final decision is made."

There was a bit more but for the most part it seems as if regular decision apps aren't looked at for another month. :x

That seems really late. I'm surprised how slow they have been this year.

I know! I got the same email today (even though my status changed a few days ago). They're probably the latest school so far in reviewing my app :x

Yeah, I had been complete for at while before they emailed us. I am thinking of calling and asking about a possible timeline.

I talked to an admissions person at a law day back in October. I wanted to add another letter of recommendation, and she said I had plenty of time because they probably will not even begin looking at applications until January (which goes along with the email they sent out this week).

Gross. I wonder why they are waiting so long to look at applications this year.

By ED they mean people who put their application in by a certain time.

Does anybody know where to find some pictures of the law building aside from the official ones in marketing materials? Or does anybody have any from a visit they would not mind posting? I'm living in China right now and there is not way I will be able to do a campus visit before next fall.

Does anyone have an idea of when a decision will be made? Before or after January 15th?
