In via snail mail! Took two weeks for the mail to get to my city (I live abroad), and my updates are: complete Oct.23, Updates: Nov.6 (Interview invitation sent), Nov. 19, Nov.20 and Nov.26. Three updates post interview seem to be the charm.
For those who got alumni interview: The interview is very important since the Dean mentioned my interview and what my interviewer said about me on my admission letter.
Good luck to those who are still waiting. So excited to get my first T14 acceptance!

Didn't they say the admitted students website would be up by December? Is it working for anyone?

Just got my second update since it went complete, but no interview invitation. I'm a splitter. Do I take this to mean it's not looking good?

Just received my letter, accepted for the full time program!

I applied regular decision in late October, had an interview 11/21 updates 11/22, 11/28, 12/3. Interview was with a local alum.

GPA is above 75th and LSAT is well below 25th I'm a major splitter. Very strong softs helped. So excited, this is my first T-14 acceptance!

Complete 11/19
Updates 11/27, 12/7, and 12/10...
Still no decision rendered/e-mail sent my way but it seems like I just got update #3 so hopefully good news soon please and thank you?
No interview request (although I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing), but I'm not a splitter so... hrm.

i had my interview today - the alum ended up being a friend of my uncle's. the interview was very informal, but in a good way. he spent the majority of the time selling the law school to me (and did a good job). looking forward to receiving a decision from them!

I'm in the exact same situation. So does this mean we should be checking the mail incessantly for a decision letter? I can't get the full consensus, since I didn't get an interview invite

Has anyone whose application went complete after 11/26 received any updates? I had one on 11/27, but nothing after that. Tomorrow is two weeks from the complete date and I'm starting to freak..

Yay! Got my acceptance letter in the mail. Loved the personalized note! My third update was 12/5. I didn't have an interview.

Reverse splitter with a 3.9/166.

This should mean good news is on the way for the rest of the 12/5 third update group (I live pretty in the Northeast). And to everyone else still waiting, know that it will take the letter a lot longer than you expect to arrive in your mailbox so don't worry if it's been more than a week since your third update and you haven't received a letter yet.

Unless we get an e-mail ding, I think we should hopefully be good? From the other posts though, I wouldn't expect the letter to arrive for a week or so... I live in NY, but I'm going to force myself not to be concerned until the end of next week.

When did everyone else get interview requests? Before Update #3? And was it mostly splitter folks or 25th-ish people or what? I know some people got in sans interview and some people got an interview request. Just trying to make sense of the insanity!

I did get an interview request (group interview) after my first review, although I can't be sure since I wasn't keeping track of updates. 170/3.92

Alas, if only my GPA was .39 points higher, lol.

Gives me a little bit of hope due to my 3.9-ish average my junior year and my going to be 3.8-4.0 for this semester.

I'm here to shatter your paradigm, folks. I only had 2 updates before my decision!

Complete: 11/19
Updates: 11/29 and 12/3

Acceptance ( :mrgreen: ) letter was dated 12/3, postmarked 12/8, received today.

Not sure it matters, but I did a group interview before I submitted my app.

SUPER excited and thinking about going to the January open house!

edit: 169/3.8+ non-URM

Did anyone who was admitted in the 11/26 batch receive an ASW email?
