Maybe I'm just a crazy but I screenshot the status checkers when they change.


on the one hand, this sounds crazy.

on the other hand Ive changed my system 3 or 4 times and keep wishing i remembered information i didn't originally record, so, fair enough.


Ha yeah I just applied to too many schools and can't keep my dates straight. On the upside (? Sort of?) they don't change much so not too many pics :D

Based off of last year's cycle, it looks like those with early UR1 dates will start getting accepted soon.

If this year is like last year's cycle, this is what the next month and a half should look like:
-those with "typical" admit stats with early UR1 dates will start getting acceptances through mid-March (there was a big wave March 6&7)
-most rejections end of March (3/29 last year)
-waistlist early April
-those that get rejected between now and the big wave of rejections at the end of March tend to have ~<167 LSAT and/or <3.4 GPA

So my 10/15 UR1 date is a GOOD thing? Wow, this is news.

So, as someone with UR1 12/2 who's very likely expecting a rejection...I may not hear until the end of March? That's ridiculous. Barely gives me enough time to send in my responses in time to all of my other schools. I can't believe they think this is a reasonable way to handle applications.

Unreasonable, perhaps. Inconvenient, absolutely. Unfortunately, as applicants, we don't have any control over this process. The best approach is to remain as flexible as possible if this is one of your top choices.

I submitted back in October and am still waiting. Hopefully we will hear back with positive news soon!

Yup, I sorted through last cycle on LSN via decision dates. My theory is that those with early UR dates were held, and they're going through our apps this month. Now that they have a better idea of the applicant pool, a good bunch of us might get admitted!

To my knowledge, no. (Source: I have read 98% of this thread.)

Last year, interview invites came out toward the beginning/early-middle of March.

Hey gang! Anyone had any luck so far soliciting a travel stipend for ASW? Or does anyone know if there is even a standard process for doing so? Just shoot an email to the financial aid office?
