waiting for this decision will probably send me to the loony bin. why can't everyone just do email/phone call. I would actually have preferred to not know the decision was made or coming until it got here, this is just cruel haha

I am sorry to hear about that. Do you plan on sending a "Why ND essay" in now?

Yep, but not a very long or in depth one just kind of mentioned talking to a woman at our Law School Fair on campus and the things that caught my attention from what she said and then talked about a few areas of study they offer that I am interested in.

Not feeling too good about the fact that my mail came today and there was nothing from Notre Dame. It says "Decision Made" on the 27th which I believe is the same date as some of the people who go acceptance today....does this mean I'm getting WL or denied? Could it just be because I live further from South Bend than the others that got accepted today? I know I sound paranoid...this is what this law school cycle has done to me :(

Getting kind of nervous too. It's been three days since the 27th so if it doesn't come today, I'm going to assume that it's not priority mail and that it's either a WL or.... :cry:

Maybe they made a decision but did not send it out immediately.

Whenever your status changes do you get an e-mail? If so that would save me from the status checker addiction. Also, is there any status's other than complete, in review and decision made?

I don't remember if I got an email when my app went complete, but I got an email saying that my decision has been sent a few hours after the status changed on the checker (I check it incessantly). Don't know any more than that.

Thanks, also, are you from Indiana? I only ask because 3-4 hours puts you in the tri-state region and I'm from Indiana.

I'm in the same boat. Luckily, I didn't check the status checker until today. Otherwise, I'd be in more agony.

Why send the decision in the mail?????? lol
