+1 Just noticed my In Review changed from 11/7 to 11/26 as well.

I wish. Below both medians, but good softs (owned 3 businesses since high school while in college full time, numerous extracurricular leadership positions, MBA, on the board of directors for a technology incubator serving on the IP and Marketing committees, etc). I know that isn't the cliche "olympic medal" or "cured cancer" people say are impressive softs, but I think it puts me ahead of others in my number category.

They added this tidbit today:

Once your file is deemed "in review" the date associated with it may change a couple of times before a decision is issued. The date change has no significance in the review process. It is for administrative purposes only.


Any chance they read TLS? :P

I feel like I remember you from the Maryland 2015 thread. Am I crazy? Are you going for it again?

Either way, best of luck!

Your memory is correct and you are not crazy, lol. Furthest I got last year was waitlist, this time I upped my LSAT score (slightly) and am applying much earlier. So, we'll see. Thanks for the luck, hopefully I won't need it.

A guy in my section had both a better LSAT and GPA than I did (neither of us are URMs), but he applied in march and I applied at the end of december. I was accepted no problem, he was waitlisted and barely snuck in over the summer. You should be much better off with your earlier application date.

Thanks, that's certainly encouraging! Timing can really make or break an applicant.

I was hoping they'd make decisions today since some of us had status updates yesterday (last month people were admitted the day after they had status updates). This blows :(.
