Once you get an outcome you don't want, you'd probably give a lot to go back to waiting if waiting might yield you a more favorable result. At least that's always how I feel after I don't get something I really wanted.

A strong disagree with "you'd probably give a lot to go back to waiting if waiting might yield you a more favorable result"...that ain't the way life works, better to have amor fati.

When does Dean Deal usually start calling? Would we know if today was the day by now? (1pm EDT)

I check mine every.single.time I get on TLS and see a new post in the SLS thread, BEFORE reading the new post.

DLS today, no email or call yet so unless by some miracle they made a mistake and are planning to call me at some point today...

DING DING DING :|

True splitter; above 75th LSAT below 25th GPA.

It's alright though. Stanford was a hail mary for me. Good luck to those who are still waiting. I think there will be good news yet for many of you.

Very sorry to hear that :( I'm sure you'll have many wonderful opportunities outside of SLS...
Would you mind sharing complete date?

Sorry to hear about the ding :(. Looks like you have some other great options, though!

Also, for those of you keeping score at home, we are now up to 1/27 complete for dings.

Well as a mid-November complete, I can take solace in the fact that Dean Deal didn't laugh my file out of the room. With YLS, on the other hand, I'm pretty sure I heard pretty high-pitched chortle coming from New Haven after getting my Complete email.

So if my complete date was 12/17 and I have yet to hear anything, what does that mean? If anything...

means you have neither been dinged, accepted, nor waitlisted.

Thanks buffalo...
Fellow 1/27 complete here. Let the incessant refreshing of status page and borderline psychotic nail biting begin. And by begin, I of course mean continue.

Tbf this isn't a part of my day to day vocabulary, but a friend and I had a pretty long argument yesterday about whether the noun stays the same for the plural form or becomes "chortles," so it's still fresh on my mind.

I'm still becoming best friends with you so that I can come home to the west coast and speak like this in everyday conversation. Everyone is already expecting me to, so I can't disappoint.

She's only made afternoon calls twice this cycle that I'm aware of-the first was the very first wave of calls back in November. The other was a single afternoon call (after a wave of morning calls) to someone who had been waitlisted the prior two years and reapplied again-successfully :D-this year.
