I applied last night, got a link to status checker this morning, and just went "In Committee." Glad they seem to be moving fast.

That's irritating. Maybe you should call them and find out what's going on...or maybe they just decided to change the status checker message to keep people from calling.

Anyone know what the difference is between In Review and In Committee?

In! I just found out via email - status checker changed to "Admitted, congratulations!" and I have "Decision Mailed" and "Admitted Student Email" under mailings. Email said that $$$ information would be in the admissions packet. I'm thrilled to have my first law school admission! Hopefully everyone else will find out soon!

CONGRATS!!!! They're my #1 choice, so I'm hoping to get in.

Of course... I've been there too (undergrad). It's a typical college town, pretty sleepy at night and on the weekends...

I gotta say, looking back I'm amazed at how fast you went. I was complete for about six weeks before going in review.

I know, I was surprised considering the amount of time I've waited at other schools (looking at you, Santa Clara and William and Mary...).

I do work in the gaming industry and indicated interest in practicing gaming law, so that could be a factor.

I saw that in your LSN profile. Based on that, I figured you were totally in. UNLV loves people focused on the gaming community, obviously.

I just received my acceptance letter today. They also offered me a half-scholarship. This was my top choice so I accepted the offer immediately. Good luck to everybody waiting on their acceptance letter.

Just got acceptance email. Applied the first week in January, got a call about a week ago from someone in admissions asking me specific questions like why I wanted to go to UNLV. Checked my email last night and I got in! Still waiting on packet to see if I got a scholarship, as I'm out of state, that's really the only way I'd consider attending. Also waiting to hear from U of A, ASU and William and Mary.


2.8/166 for anyone who cares. My GPA has been 3.9 since returning to school in 2010 after spending 4 years in the Army, and the admin guy said they take that into consideration.

So, if i go, who's down to play some poker on the weekends?

Been in review since 1/4 (applied 12/24). Had little phone conversation with the Director of Admissions about two weeks ago.

Been IR since 12/7. I talked to an admissions person and he said the majority of their decisions go out in April...

The fact that I mine so quickly makes me feel good about my chances at $.
