I applied Fall! I haven't seen my package yet because I am currently on vacations, I hope it is really Fall that is written indeed!

It took me a couple weeks to get mine last year.


Where on the ASW can you see if you have a financial award?

I don't remember the exact date and can't really check I am on my phone and do not have access to my documents but sometimes between Sept 5 and Sept 15. Was admitted in the first wave, good luck to you!!

For the moment I just can't log into ASW anymore... It did that to a couple of forum users a few pages ago, I'll email them about it and get back to you after!

Were most people who have been admitted so far ED? I have competitive numbers and have been surprised by the lack of response I've received so far -- one admit to Cornell and no word from anywhere else yet.

Anyone think there will be more tomorrow, or will we have to wait for next week again?

Still just complete :( anyone know if they release throughout the day or just first thing in the morning? Need to know if I should be refreshing all day long! I submitted 9/3 with a 172/3.6 and a why Mich? Essay so I'm starting to worry that they don't like something in my app.... Ugh!

The pattern seems to be that they dump all decisions in the morning. But no one has confirmed that.

Yeah I notice that the date changes in the very early hours (around 3-ish EST) every day. I imagine this is when any changes would be reflected as well, though I obviously can't verify for sure.

I think you're okay. It took mine forever to go complete. I'm ED, too.


While I hope the two of you are right (I'm in the same boat, ED submitted on 11/6, "application received" email on 11/7, and still waiting for the status checker email) I am concerned that we have to go complete by tomorrow.

From their website:
Early Decision applications must be complete by November 15; all application components, including letters of recommendation and the LSAC Law School Report, must be received by the Admissions Office in advance of that date.

It's a little vague, which is what worries me. I don't know if it means that applications must be marked complete by the university via status checker, or just complete as in everything was received by the 15th.

Also, on the application the ED certification says,
I understand that the deadline for Early Decision is November 15, and that all my application materials must be submitted to the Admissions Office in advance of that date in order to ensure that I meet the deadline.

I think this suggests that everything just has to be submitted before the 15th, but again, it's not completely clear.

When my friend contacted the admissions office about it, he was told "Our Early Decision deadline is that your application must be complete, in our office by November 15, 2012."

Nowhere I've looked has given me a more concrete answer than that. Fingers crossed! I guess we'll find out soon...
