75th LSAT and >75th GPA and I'm also waiting, so I'll join the good numbers waiting club. Early Jan submission; late Jan complete.

Above both medians. Complete 1/11. Seems a lot of solid applicants are still waiting.

I think we've already discussed this in PM but yeah, I've been wondering the same thing. Of course it could just be a combination of other factors holding me back.

Have a little faith.

Then again, Worm is still waiting too, so maybe we're all getting rejected because one of the adcoms lurking here hates and despises FFX fans. :roll:

You've hardly been waiting. Lots of us were 2012 completes.

Yeah, I wasn't complaining. I don't expect to hear for another 2-3 weeks. Just figured people here were anxious to chart numbers vis-a-vis complete dates so I added my two cents for the good of all! :)

1/22 complete??? Ughh god.



says the guy who has 175/3.9....

congrats though!

Sorry, I realize that kind of makes me sound like a jerk. I just meant that there are others here with higher LSAT scores than mine that haven't heard back yet, so there isn't anything special about my numbers that explains why my decision came sooner, despite my late submission. It might just be partially random, and I wouldn't read too much into dates. :)

You can zoom into a specific area of the graph. I don't think you could do that before, could you?

That's a pretty neat feature. Using the old version it was very difficult to read any details when you hit a cluster of identical or nearly-identical numbers. The ability to sort applicants by $$$ is also useful.

Of course, the fact that the site loads too slowly to actually be used negates all of these nifty improvements.

The completion email seems to indicate it's worth reading into dates, though:
"We will forward your file to the Admissions Committee, which will evaluate it in the order in which it was completed."

which pretty much means.. everyone who went complete earlier than 1/22 got their apps reviewed already... and CLS decided to move on..

Perhaps they go through the applicants in order, separate the auto-dings and the auto-accepts and the 'look more closely' files, and then proceed accordingly. In that case everyone from, say, 12/25 to 1/25 could just have their acceptances shipped out in one big batch while they simultaneously spend some time fleshing out the "look more closely" pile? In that case some people with a 1/22 date would receive an acceptance while the 1/8 person was still under consideration.

That's how I would do it. I'm not an expert by any stretch, mind you.

It makes more sense that they do it this way, given this (LinkRemoved) graph.

Forgive me for being such a n00b but how does one read/interpret that chart?

Thanks for all you've done for us this cycle btw, you're awesome!

The only thing is I can't find my data point on a single graph. I wonder if LSN is trying to tell me something.

Maybe. Or there is some numerical threshold that triggers an auto-acceptance, while others that are on the bubble are reviewed.

My completion email was dated 1/29. Just got my got acceptance letter dated 2/4. Doubt they would have reviewed my app that quickly.

Didn't you take your numbers off your LSN profile though?

Oooooooh, that would do it. Cycle's almost over, though, so that'll be fixed soon.
