What if we're ED and we don't hear back this week?! Does that mean we've been deferred or rejected? Tell our fortune!!!

Not necessarily. In previous cycles there were multiple batches. That's for ED.

For RD, if you're an early applicant (Sept/Oct) and you don't get in this month, things aren't looking good.

How are applicants notified of decisions? Email? Status checker? USPS?

Status checker will change to "Decision Letter Sent" and acceptance will come via snail mail. ED deferrals come via email. Last year, people successfully logged into the Admitted Students' Website to confirm acceptances, and some people (perhaps only ED, though I didn't read closely enough to tell) were called shortly after the status change.

The RD admits were also called, although many weren't called until the following day, since they started the calls in the late afternoon and didn't have time to call everyone.

You have a better attitude than me. I'm just so sick of all the waiting. Waiting to take the LSAT, waiting for scores, waiting for recs to be submitted, waiting to go under review. It would be more bearable if we knew the decisions were coming out, for instance, on Wednesday, but instead we just have to twiddle our thumbs and wonder.

This is going to make me sound insane :shock: , but I am so worried about law school apps and the uncertainty of everything (where I'll get in, where I'll be this time next year, etc) that it has started to invade my subconscious- I have had at least three dreams in the past month where I was at one of the schools I have applied to. They were happy dreams, but still, this is ridiculous- I need a new hobby besides monitoring my status checkers :)

I had a nightmare that the NYU adcomms were on a TV show discussing the pros and cons of every applicant (it felt like I was watching the bachelorette or something) and I had all of my insecurities trotted out in front of me on national television and then I woke up before they reached a decision.

No, I wouldn't be too worried. Just after mid-November seems like the cutoff for applicants hearing back in December. But thats not a rule, there's plenty of exceptions

Thought my boss was the only one. Co workers, interns and my officemate's mom (woman I've never met before) are all on that list. Can't wait to hit them all with some good news.

If I recall correctly, the data showed that a good # of people who applied then got accepted in early Dec., but there were also some who applied in that time frame and got accepted in Jan. and some who got WL'd/dinged in Jan.
