Just to be thorough, I logged into an app on LSAC and my email in the field was the same case as on my status checker. My conclusion: upper case=you let the form auto-fill from your general lsac profile, lowercase=you manually filled it in on the app, one upper one lower=you let it fill the primary, then manually did your secondary because it does not do that one automatically.

Is this really the best use of my time...

I can't easily access the fb page from china but I hope to see you all come fall! This is like every Christmas ever wrapped up into one.

For those who are still waiting: don't lose hope. This cycle is better than ever. We are going to continue to see some miracles.

Both my emails are uppercase as well (looks like SLS reads these forums and fixed that bug!) :wink:

someone wrote:I wonder when decision calls will occur again.

I have three competing theories on this. (This is my thread so I'm allowed to be neurotic.)
1) Yesterday was just the crazy-qualified admits and there won't necessarily be another wave anytime soon.
2) They called around 4-5 yesterday so they'll call around 4-5 today.
a) Because that's the time they scheduled to call.
b) Because they reviewed apps all day then called at the end.
3) The office has been settling in all morning and they're going to get some lunch and call when they're done.

For some reason I have this mentality that I'll know whether I got in soon but I have to keep reminding myself they're not going to let me know if I'm dinged.

Have you done a comparison on last years' threads to see if more or less people reported admittance on the first day of calls? Yesterday seemed like a relatively small batch, but I'm not totally sure what previous years looked like either.

Last year's thread is kind of a mess with the first wave - I don't think anyone even posted an acceptance until January. I'll take a look at it anyway.

Did your email go lowercase on the status checker?


One of the is lowercase, the other is not! I do not know the significance of that. Nothing has changed on the app checker. I'll let you guys know when I get the stuff in the mail? I know some people might not believe me, but I swear I'm not cruel enough to prank anyone like this. That would be ridiculously unkind.


This happened to me last year. Mine went from two UPPERCASE emails to one UPPER, one LOWER.

Also, yay! I HAVE NEW FRIENDS! Congratulations, everyone :)

1. Yesterday's admits were super early submitters (sure they were very qualified, too, but I think there is a chronological basis to the admit calls)
2. They called more than this for sure. 8-9 on here alone, right? Probably 20 total or more?

I skimmed through some of last year's thread an it looks like 6 ppl who applied in september were accepted 1/9 and 8 people who applied from sept. through late oct. were accepted on 1/15. I'm not really sure if this information is relevant to our cycle though.

Quick check on LSN supports this.

is that the same with SLS? if everyone who heard back yesterday were Sept submitters, does that also mean they had an advantage?


I initially thought there was no advantage, but a very good poster who ran a regression stated that there is in the first thread below.

http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=209551&p=6757984&hilit=

However, a more recent post indicates that the relationship was not statistically significant, although that doesn't mean applying early provides no boost.

And we're getting close to the time when acceptances started going out yesterday. Phones out for those who applied in Sept!

last year they started decisions on the 9th and then there were some on the 15th and 17th, so if no calls occur tonight maybe there will be some next Tuesday and then the Monday after Thanksgiving.

Did anyone accepted yesterday submit in late September?

It seems that most submitted within a couple of days after app started?
