Update 11/21, 11/28, and 12/3.

No email yet so I'm hoping to get a letter later this week!! Any chance they'll send a delayed email?


I got a hold email two full days after my 3rd update. They were trollin' hard. No one is safe.

Were all you guys with the holds applying ED or RD? I submitted an ED that was received on the 21st, now says complete with a date of 11/27, just wondering what kind of timetable I should be expecting

Not ED. And I applied to both full and part time programmes.

From what we're seeing, do people see GULC's hold as more of a YP, wait and see how the cycle plays out or some frankenstein mixture of the two?

I could be far off, but I wouldn't fret too much about a hold because I think there is still a pretty bright shine of hope in it.

Regardless, I hope you ED candidates find your way off of hold and waitlist, considering you were willing to take that leap of faith!

Also curious.

I get the feeling, from my individual scenario, that hold candidates are people they have really considered admitting, but are on the fence about how it will affect their medians & 25/75 percentiles, so they are holding off to see how the entire applicant pool shapes up.

I say this because many would consider my #'s auto-reject and I got put on hold. I'm a URM and I have a really good story, so I get the vibe that they are seriously considering my app, otherwise, with my #'s, they could have easily rejected me without thinking twice about it.

That's my guess.

The bolded can be a game changer though, too. You may consider your #'s auto-reject, but to them, you might contribute to that other table that says, "[insert URM group] xx%

They care about that table nearly as much as they do the table of LSATs and GPAs from everything I've seen

That is definitely a valid point, I guess being on the lower end of the T-14 it is hard to find URM's with 16X+ scores, but even so, I'm surprised and happy to still be in the game.

This year especially, it ain't over till it's over. I never thought I'd have a shot at admission, but I got a pre-December acceptance, so this is a whole different ball game.

That is very true. I checked your LSN and you may not be auto-admit #'s, but still really solid credentials. Better than my #'s :lol:
Congrats, though!

Thanks a lot man. If it makes you feel better, I'm applying to be a Navy JAG right now and there is a slim chance they're going to let me do it, which implicitly would mean I'd be reconsidering all my options, so a slot I might have otherwise taken could very well open up. I doubt I'm the only one on the fence about vacating their seat, but it's gotta give some hope to those on the hold and WL list.

This year=a big, school-yard style staring contest between applicants and admissions offices

True, it does help a bit! Also, I'm going to PM you about JAG because that is my goal.

First Acceptance of the Year!!! Way stoked I had my last update on the 26th and was worried because everyone else with that update had already received their letters. I am definitely the lowest GPA Splitter: 170/3.2

Side note for "feelslike12", you must also wish that Michigan (or a dreamer school) doesn't accept me.

PS Don't wish too hard

Hold/WL are via e-mail
Dings are also via snail mail


I thought the consensus was both hold/wl and dings are via email, only acceptance is via snail mail? Remembered there was a discussion a few pages ago. Anyone who got dinged through snail mail?

There are at least two lower on lsn-both with higher lsat scores, so others take heart.
