Does this warrant a follow-up email or phone call or is this normal?


That is about how long it took for me, and my interviewer contacted me the day that he heard from Georgetown.


Ok great thanks for the info! They probably had a surge in apps when December rolled around or something so I'm sure they'll get to me in good time.

Hmm 5th update today...

3rd update the day after my interview (12/18), then an update the next day 12/19, and then another one today 12/21
I thought I was in the clear for an acceptance after the 4th update and no ding 48hrs later... so much for the 3rd/4th update rule. Any thoughts?

Perhaps the rule is three updates post-interview? It looks like most people who had interview + four updates had a pattern of: complete->update->interview->update->update->update->letter/ding/WL

Are you counting your completion date as an update?

I have had three updates after my interview and I'm hoping for a decision...

After going back through the blog, it seems that for those who interview you should expect three updates after you interview. I so far have only had two updates post-interview; which sucks because I was hoping for a decision before the break

Anxiety buddies! It doesn't help that it is the Friday before Christmas, so we could theoretically be waiting until the middle of next week. :shock: Good luck!

How long, on average, does it take for the application to go into review after being put in "complete" status? Mine's been complete since 12/3.

There is no under review status, just complete with multiple updates. For the most part it goes complete, then three date updates and you will have your decision. My total turnaround time was about 3 weeks, if you have an interview then it could be longer.

Ah, I see. I'm still on update #1, so I doubt it changes at all next week with the holidays.

Either way, I'm expecting, at best, a waitlist. Actually, getting waitlisted would be really promising for me.

I didn't get any email. Also, not to drive people crazy but after submitting in November I got the application complete update 12/18 and the snail mail today so I'm not sure if the three updates rule applies.

No news is probably good news. Letters take longer than email.

I will try to keep updating this once a week. (Kudos to LSATSCORES2012 for creating a program that zips through LSN and pulls data that would otherwise have been very time consuming to gather.)


Awesome, thank you for posting that.
